Can anybody let me know if they have used Glide for arthritis in their dog. I have a labrador with problem hips and have been told that it is really good..??

Cheers

I have several clients using it on their dogs with good success (also others on Joint Guard).

Alanglen - it's another joint supplement made by Parnell, slightly different to some in that it contains glucosamine, chondroitin and omega oils as well. They also have their own PSGAG injection called Zydex, which is the same concentration as Pentosan and Cartrophen.

ETA: The name of the product is actually "Glyde".

I have been using Glide for my Shar Pei boy with HD and joint problems

He is much more mobile and not as stiff on it as he was on Joint Guard

If we're talking about the same product, Glyde is a powder for dogs that is available over the counter. There is probably a horse version too (as there are companion versions of both Pentosan and Cartrophen).

Peibie............do you get your Glyde online? If so, where do you get it and what price do you pay? I have looked at several sites and have seen prices ranging from $82 to $110! Thanks

I've just been told by my vet to put my girl onto this powder after finding out she has HD problems. We only started it last night, so I can't give any good results yet, but I'm glad to see others are using it and seeing good results.

I asked the vet about green lipped mussels and she said that was one of the main ingrediants in this powder, so we'll give it a go and see if it helps her at all.

Thanks Rappie, I hadn't clicked about the spelling, saw a brochure for it the other day from Parnell! Be interested to hear about people's experiences soon!

I saw it on Value Vet Products for $74.28 (not including shipping), but I have never dealt with them, so I don't know what they are like. I am also interested in trying Glyde for my 13 year old whippet, I have been using Joint guard, which has helped her to a degree.

Thanks Trish, that is about $5 cheaper than the other sites I have seen, will save the link for next time, have already ordered through VetStop.

I have been using Joint Guard, for my puppy, but I really dont think it has made any difference. Our specialist has recomended Glyde so hopefully it will help.

Just wondering if you have seen any positive results since starting Glyde ?

It has a fishy smell i think, my dog loves it though, he licks the bowl afterward for residue

Is it helping your dogs ? I have been using Joint Guard too, and would like to try Glyde, but I'm hoping for some feedback before I make the change.

Thanks,

Trish

I think its what yuour dogs do well on - my guys have done brilliantly on Joint guard - my old boy moves well and bounces around like a puppy.

Rappie do you think there is any clinical difference between Glyde and Joint Guard?

Cheers,
