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)

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.

We have a 9 year old, 80 lb. lab mix who has bad hips. I judge her hip health by whether she can still jump up onto our bed. Some months ago she could no longer do it. My vet recommended I try the PhyCox. After a couple of months she was able to jump up onto the bed again. Last week at the dog park she sprinted (as fast as her 9 year old body could) for the first time in years. The reason I only give it 4 stars is because it is rather expensive, but if it keeps her relatively active it is worth it. (BTW - Entirely Pets has the cheapest PhyCox I have found.)
PHYCOX by JOANNE from MAIDEN, NC03/10/2012
MY GERMAN SHEPHARD HAS BEEN ON THIS PRODUCT FOR 3 YEARS. HE HAD SURGERY ON HIS ELBOWS AT 9 MONTHS. HE HASN'T HAD A PROBLEM SINCE ON THE PHYCOX, THE VET HAD RECOMMENDED THIS PRODUCT BECAUSE OF THE INFLAMATION CONTROL IT HAD.
Phycox for Arthritis by clubNedUSA from Strafford, NH10/17/2011
My vet prescribed Phycox for my two Boxers and it has been very effective in relieving knee, hip and back pain for my dogs.. leading a much better life now than before this product.. it works.
Great product with some reservations by iluvdoggies from Deer Park, WA02/24/2012
I prefer the granules but the price of the chews was hard to resist and I can get the granules only through the vet. My dogs would be in alot worse shape with their arthritis if it weren't for this product. Of coarse I recently found out that it is a COX-2 inhibitor meaning it is an nsaid, so I am not sure of my of my true feelings. Will have to do some more research.
I am very pleased with entirelypets.com!
Phycox Chews by Michelle from Virginia Beach, VA10/08/2011
I have used Phycox Chews for my 13 year old dog who has hip and joint issues due to his breed and age. I saw an immediate improvement in my dog's ease of mobility after the first week of using this product. My dog seems to enjoy the taste and has no digestive problems due to the chews. I highly recommend this product...a bit pricey, but worth the comfort if affords my furry friend.
Works on our old pup! by mike in houston01/12/2012
We've used Phycox for a year now and do believe this and regular walks has had a very positive impact on our 13 year old pup getting around (he finds them and the joint treats pretty hard to resist!)
Best joint health purchase by Alex from Willoughby, OH01/17/2012
My dogs are quite active...hiking almost daily. My lab had both knees repaired. The PhyCox Soft Chews help both dogs with their mobility and strength. I can't imagine not using PhyCox to support healthy joints.
Excellent price Nov 2011 by boxermom from Twin Cities MN12/02/2011
My vet recommended Phycox for my Boxer Cross's partial cruciate tear. We've had excellent results, but it was $80 for 120 treats at the vet. I was so glad to find this deal for 360 treats (plus some "joint treats" whatever they are) for about $130. We received our shipment in a reasonable amount of time as well, and shipping was free! If deals like this continue, I will be back.

PhyCox by Henry from ma02/11/2012
Grace (Boxer Dog) loves these, she get two a day and will not eat her regular dogs treat (Chicken nibblers) until she gets her PhyCox first? Really made a difference with her.
service by MA02/07/2012
Worst customer service from a company!!! Still haven't resolved the issue and I have disputed charge on my credit card thru my bank.
PhyCox Soft Chews by Dan11/30/2011
Very pleased. Roux takes them without coaxing. Truly just what the Dr ordered since they are recommended by our Vet.
Phycox by Lotsolabs from Granby,CT.01/14/2012
This product works very well if you don't want to use an NSAID on your dog for daily use and avoid the side effects that come with using them.
I was very happy with my purchase and this is not the first time that I have ordered them. I also like the service it came quite quickly. I would definitely order again and I would recomend you.

Phycox has, so far, been very good for my German Shepherd, who had bilateral elbow surgery at 1 year old. She is now 1 year and 9 months and plays like a puppy that never had anything wrong.
