PhyCox® is a naturally derived extract of wild blue-green algae grown in the United States. Blue-green algae are a rich source of phytonutrients including Phycocyanin, a biliprotein that has scientifically demonstrated health benefits. They PhyCox® patented process produces a highly concentrated source of Phycocyanin, offering strong joint support and relief of discomfort in two ways:
1. Proven Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) Inhibition: Numerous studies demonstrate the high concentrations of Phycocyanin found in PhyCox® specifically inhibit the COX-2 enzyme, blocking the synthesis of inflammatory eicosanoids, the natural mediators of imflammation in the body.
2. Dynamic Antioxidant: Phycocyanin has powerful free radical scavenging properties. It can help enhance the body's defense against the degradative effects of free radicals that cause cellular damage and play a role in a host of degenerative conditions in dogs.
Turmeric is a natural botanical extract from the roots of the Curcuma longa plant with well-researched health benefits. Due to its ability to inhibit leukotriene biosynthesis and modify prostaglandin production, Tumeric has demonstrated antiinflammatory and antioxidant capabilities.
MSM provides dietary sulfur that aids in the efficient function of cellular membranes and supports healthy muscles and joints by reducing inflammation.
Omge-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 Fatty Acids help reduce inflammation by altering the production of inflammatory mediators and support joint health by inhibiting enzymes involved in cartilage matrix destruction.- Promotes healthy coat condition
JOINT SUPPORT The Phycox®-EQ formula offers a joint support matrix for healthy synovial maintenance as wells as bone and muscle support.
Glucosamine HCI As a precusor for glycominoglycans, glucaosamine supports joint health by stimulating GAG production. Glucosamine rduces the activity of inflammatory mediators and damaging anzymes that can degrade cartilage.
Boron Normal bone metabolism requires the mineral Boron. Boron supplementation increases bone strength and the mineral content of the bone organic matrix.
Creatine Monohydrate Creatine is a significat amino acid found in skeletal muscle and it plays a role in muscular energy and may have value in improving muscle strength enabling the horses to feel more energetic.
Antioxidants The PhyCox® formula also contains a special blend of antioxidants to complement the potent protection from oxidative damage offered by Phycocyanin and Tumeric.

Arthritis is a painful condition There are two major forms of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a common form of arthritis which involves inflammation of the jonts, swelling, pain, and loss of function. The primary sympton of rheumatoid arthritis is inflammation of the synovial membrane. The membrane thickens and synovial fluid accumulates. The resulting pressure causes pain and tenderness.
The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis, is a degenerative joint disease that is far more common than rheumatoid arthritis. It is characterized by the deterioration of articular cartilage and the formation of new bone in the subchondral areas and at the margins of the joint. The cartilage slowly degenerates and as the bone ends become exposed, small bumps of new osseous tissue are deposited on them. These bumps decrease the space in the bone cavity and restrict joint movement.
Phycocyanin It has been discovered that a blue-green algae extract and, more particularly, phycocyanin functions as a COX-2 inhibitor that is effective in treating arthritis and other inflammatory conditions in animals. The use of phycocyanin is now patented and effective in reducing inflammation in animals through its ability to selectively inhibit the COX-2 enzyme.
PhyCox® has all the joint support benefits od many commonly used products, plus scientific research has shown Phycox® to be effective at reducing pain and inflammation in dogs.
For use in dogs only. A patented formula with Phycox®, a natural source of phycocyanin with proven health benefits. Recommended to support joint mobility and healthy bone structure. Provides enhanced antioxidant protection and Omega-3 Fatty Acids in a palatable soft chew.

Cautions: Safe use in pregnant animasl or animals intended for breeding has not been proven. If lameness worsens, discontinue use and contact your veterinarian. Administer during or after the animal has eaten to reduce incidence of gastrointestinal upset.
I gave one star because zero stars are not possible. Iordered these soft chews by mistake. I EMAILED EP within minutes of placing my order realizing that I did not want this product and that I made a mistake. My only recourse was to wait til it came to my house and refuse delivery. That is some way to do buismess. So buyer beware, don't ever make a mistake on your order because EP CAN NOT OR WILL NOT TRY TO CANCEL YOUR ORDER (OR CORRECT IT).
I WILL NOT DO BUSINESS WITH EP AGAIN.

Phycox HA--great for dog arthritis pain by Lab Lover01/04/2012
When the vet diagnosed my nine-year-old lab with arthritis, I was presented with several costly ways to help her pain. I have arthritis too and found the herb turmeric to be very helpful at reducing pain from inflammation. I went in search of pet product that included turmeric to give to my dog. At Entirely Pets, I discovered Phycox HA, which includes turmeric as one of the ingredients. Phycox HA is easy to serve nugget-size morsels that my dog actually likes! In less than three weeks on the product, my dog has stopped limping. Aside from the fact that Phycox HA worked to relieve arthritis pain for my dog, the product costs less than the popular brand name arthritis medication for dogs that my vet recommended. I am very happy with the results Phycox HA has had on my dog; and I just bought another container.
Phycox HA by Dani from Minneapolis, MN10/23/2012
This product has worked WONDERS for my 10 year old German Shepherd (who suffers from arthritis) and my 2 year-old rottweiler (who hurt his leg while playing - and, while not certain, the vet did think it was some soft tissue damage). I'm thinking about trying it myself! :-) J/K In summary, I cannot say enough good things about this product!
Good for what ails them by dogdad from Southern California04/04/2012
I have an eight year old German Shepherd with dysplasia in both hips and skin allergies. She takes fish oil and atarax for her allergies and has been taking the standard, non-hypoallergenic form of Phycox. I changed to the HA on the theory that she will do better on that. The regimen has really helped her ease of movement. She is not guarded in her walking as much as she was.
Phycox HA is great by jazratt from Franklinton, Louisiana01/15/2012
this product is wonderful for my dog with arthritis and a sensitive stomach--she can jump up on the bed now
