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.
Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E)
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Grape Seed Extract
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.

It really seems to help by Banjobj09/07/2009
Taken in combination with Rimadyl my dog seems to be doing very well.does take awhile for the effects to work, which was stated in the info. Over all I would say the product works well.
Phycox with Tumeric by Tinman03/18/2012
Suggested by my Vet who does acupuncture as a preventive measure. Seems to work good for my two older Dacshunds.
Miracle by Susie05/09/2009
My eight month chihuahua started to not be able to walk. Her back legs would go out and she would just fall. She started to drag her back legs because she couldnt use them anymore. I took her into our local vet. They did an xray and seen she didnt have any cartilage around her knee's. Her knee's were also very bad. The vet said we should think about putting her down. She was in so much pain. Well we decided to give her two weeks on pain meds and to try this Phycox Joint support. Well she now is 9 1/2 Months old and is doing great! She is running around and playing like a puppy again! I can't believe the difference! I feel like we owe it all to the phycox JS. She is just a normal happy healthy puppy again! Although she will be on this Phycox JS for the rest of her life but it is well worth it to have her still in our lives. She is a great dog, who deserves to be able to run around and play.

WonderMed by Tara10/24/2008
My poor two year old bully dog suffers from bad joints. I tried the cheaper route by purchasing "human" glucosamine, but that didn't seem to do too much for her. When I started using PhyCox, I noticed a difference within a week! She is much more active now! And even with the extra activity, she is more comfortable. I haven't seen her limp since she's been taking PhyCox. Love it!
Great product-great service by Carly from Loudonville, OH04/07/2013
We had already been using PhyCox Soft Chews but wanted to try a new source for them. Your service is fast, reliable and consumer friendly. Thanks
Seems to be working by Charlie08/14/2012
Our 12 year old mixed breed female dog has developed some arthritis and the vet. discovered that her knee caps are not attached. Our Vet provided a 60 day supply of the PhyCox Soft Chews. We have just finished using the first 60 chews and reordered from "Entirely Pets" We believe our dog's mobility and ease of movement has improved so we intend to continue her on this product.
Tasty Medicine ? by CincyDachshunds from Cincinnati. Ohio10/24/2012
My hounds remind me that it is medicine time, as they love these soft chews. No disguising them required. Reasonably priced and a flexible recurring order keeps them in supply!
Wonderful product by Bo from Mississippi04/28/2012
The product was at a good price and I received the product in a timely maner. We can already see a difference in our 17 year old Lab. She is once again getting in our lake and swimming each day.
Quite effective by Doggie lover01/12/2012
The PhyCox Soft Chews are quite effective and very easy to administer. Our senior pet Pepper loves the chews and would probably eat all she could get. Definitely worth the price.
Great Product by All About Critters11/04/2012
My dog gets a Phycox daily to help with her joints. It has really made a difference in her mobility.
So Happy I purchased. by Kat11/01/2011
I have a 14 year old lab. She has been having a hard time going up and down our stairs. i purchased the PhyCox soft chews and after giving her just 1 a day for a week she is moving much better and has even started grabbing toys and running with them wanting to play. I highly recommend this to help your dog feel better!
Fantastic product by Von from Maplewood, Minnesota02/08/2012

Good Joint Support with tumeric by snoot man from Broken Arrow, OK06/22/2013
Used on a vets recommendation for years.
Phycox Soft Chews by Debba from Holmesville,Ohio08/16/2012
Our dog really likes the flavor of these chewables.He is going on 12 years old and runs around the yard like a pup now.Also thank you very much for the free sample of Composure,for anxiety, as when he was a pup he ran off and someone shot him with buckshot.The vet said he'd be okay, but now he absolutely hates gunshots, fireworks,and thunder.Just wondering,does this have to build up in his system or does it work as taken? Thank you, very much! Deb and Wally Sachartschuk and "Cheater"
