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.

Phycox Chews by Debbie from Louisiana06/15/2013
My dogs seem to like the flavor of the chews and they are very easy to administer. They have only been on them a month but my older dog seems to be walking better.

The Good - These soft chews make great pill stuffers. Just press the pill in and pinch it over.
Does it help joint problems? Have been using this product for years but just can't say.

Vet recommended by H317 from Vanc.Wa.10/30/2012
Our Vet recommended this product for our female
mastiff and we also give it to our male mastiff since they are such large dogs. We have placed many orders for this product with Entirely Pets and are very satisfied with the product and results.
awesome by fluff from Osgood IN02/16/2013
My GSP Buddy has been on Phycox for a little over a month now, and he feels great..He is jumping and being obnoxious like he use to...I have already recomended this to a friend..
Excellent product by Windy from Arizona01/24/2013
My vet recommended this for my aging golden retriever,. I found it at Entirely Pets so reasonably priced instead of purchasing it from the vet's office.. It has helped him so much . I swear by this product.
Very tasty (according to my Cockers!) by PattiW from Spring Lake, NC12/14/2012
These chews will be eaten right from your hand so there is no struggle for your pet to "take his medicine"!
Does not think they are treats.... by Luvmytwodogs from Missouri11/10/2012
My dog has almost finished one container. She does not think they are treats, I have to try to hide them crumbled in her food. She still seems stiff and limps at times, but we'll keep trying them (one more container to go) and see if they help over time.
Best Price by Beck11/14/2011
Every time I need to order more Phycox, I check on-line prices. Entirely Pets always has the best price and Free Shipping over $85.00, which I love.
helped my dog by Rita10/31/2012
my dog is a mixed breed with husky, beagle, and pug. Short legs, long body, and beagle knees so this equally hip and joint issues. He is 3 and started missing the couch when he wanted to look out the window. Our vet said to try these and he likes them. My dog is PICKY about his food and treats. His appetite improved as well. I am guessing he feels better.
Great product by Koa from Lake Villa, Illinois01/01/2013
This is a great product for my Lab. It has really helped his mobility. I assume they taste good because he takes them like a treat. But then Labs will eat anything. The price is the best I've found. I just wish free shipping was at $80.
Great product for aging pets. by Chris10/23/2012
We currently use Phycox with two of our dogs. As they aged they have shown slowness and general aches and pains . After about six weeks on Phycox their mobility has markedly improved.
It's good to see them back to their former selves.
Phycox is great by weim mom from Franklinton, LA03/10/2013
Phycox soft chews are a big hit with my dogs. They think that they are getting treats but they are also getting healthy benefits. My 12 year old weim has arthritis in her hips and elbows but the Phycox helps and she barely limps at all. Great product--recommended by my vet.
very helpful by cathy12/06/2011
Our dog has a bad knee and our vet recommended these supplements and they have helped her function better since we do not want to do any surgery.
PRODUCT HAS ALWAYS BEEN HIGH QUALITY. SHIPPING CHOICE IS PATHETIC. SHIPMENT REFUSED BECAUSE OF VERY SLOW DELIVERY
Great product by Little etch from Sonoma, CA01/24/2012
This product was recommended to us by our vet and after just a few weeks on this our 12-year old golden-shepherd mix was a new dog!! He is so much more active and playful. I highly recommend this product.
Works for Lily. by Anne-Marie from Franklin, TN07/15/2012
I have purchased this several times for my 12 year old greyhound as an alternative to prescription arthritis medications. Seems to work really well for her and has less side effects.
Very Good product by SARDOG from Ohio10/24/2011
My search and rescue dog is 8 years old and was starting to get a little bit of arthritis. I started giving her this product about 2 months ago and the improvement is tremendous. She is acting like a young dog again and even runs around with my new 6 month old puppy, who is a maniac. I reccommend this product to anyone!
Great Product and Supplier by Kshef from Fort Worth, TX06/19/2013
This product really helps my older English Pointer with the arthritis in her back. I price check the product every time and Entirely Pets is competitive in price and shipping.
Good stuff by Sparkiegal from Michigan10/22/2012
My vet gave me a sample of this product and it did wonders for my 8 year old border collie.
Phycox a great product by Owen from Ohio01/16/2013
Phycox has worked wonders for limping secondary to hip dysplasia. 120 lb mixed breed would limp and cry out prior to starting Phycox when he was only 2 years old. After starting Phycox he was able to go on 2 mile walks 4-5 times a week with no pain or limping. Excellent product
Phycox by mike from ohio01/01/2013
My 10 year old Stanard poodle girl was having hip issues and her rear legs would just shake when standing. after a couple of weeks taking Phycox she is running around again.
PhyCox Soft Chews by Colleen S from Las Vegas, NV02/26/2013
Three times less the cost at the vet for the exact same product. We are noticing a positive change in our dogs arthritic condition since starting on PhyCox. She is almost 13!
Doggie Joint Relief by 1catluver from Tucson, AZ03/05/2013
We have been ordering this for my dogs on the recommendation of my vet. We have seen a big difference in our pets flexibility on this product.
Great Product by Liz from St Louis, Mo01/17/2012
I have been using Phycox for two years. It provides excellent arthritis relief for my 12 1/2 year old Golden Retriever. The difference in his behavior is huge!! Love this stuff!!
Love The Phycox by Texasgal from Odessa, Texas02/28/2013
Our lab mix suffers from stiffness due to being hit by a car and suffering from a broken pelvis prior to us adopting her. As she has aged we noticed she has been struggling to get up and down and she laid around a lot. Once I started her on the Phycox she changed into a different dog. She was throwing her toys in the air and rolling around playing. GREAT PRODUCT. We make certain she is never without this product.
great to buy a product that really works by Diane from Florida03/02/2013
My 13 year old yellow lab has been taking this for about 4 years. I belive this is why she gets around so well.
Will continue to use by basset11/23/2011
This product has helped my senior pets with their arthritis. I could tell a difference within the 2nd week.
terrible retrun polices by Frittsy from Erie, PA05/06/2012
When I called them about my return, they told me it takes 3-4 weeks to process. I have waited three weeks already. Would not order from them again.
Pyrhouse by Pyrhouse from Oregon04/27/2013
We use this product for the tumeric for our dog's arthritis. It takes a while to accumulate in her system but it works. We also give her straight tumeric which is very effective. For years we have purchased from Entirely till this last shipment when they pack and sent us a very badly damaged container with damaged contents. Numerous emails to them went unanswered--very poor customer service.
