FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You are using our previous product – and it is fine for you to continue.
We have launched a new and improved Flexadin Advanced which you can purchase from your vet. If you do move your dog on to our new chews, you can transition straight away without the need for a loading phase.
A loading phase is a period of time you will need to increase the dosage given to your dog. Many other supplements in the market do require a loading phase when starting the product leading to increased cost and effort. Flexadin Advanced does not require this phase – click here to find out more about how easy it is to give.
Flexadin Advanced has a unique administration rate and regardless of the weight of your dog he/she will require only 1 chew a day. No initial loading phase is required when your dog starts Flexadin Advanced, which means you don’t need to double the number of chews for the first 4-6 weeks.
The main difference is that Flexadin Advanced contains UC-II® (undenatured type II collagen), which is a novel ingredient for the support of stiff joints in dogs and has a unique mode of action. The majority of other joint support products contain glucosamine and chondroitin, which are traditional ingredients for the support of joints in dogs and cats.
As with many ingredients that have been on the market for a long time, there are many advocates of glucosamine and chondroitin; however, although UC-II® is relatively new, it has become more and more popular due to the positive results of scientific studies in dogs, horses and humans. On top of that, Boswellia Extract is a plant extract that supports the body’s natural anti-inflammatory processes.
Flexadin Advanced is available in two pack sizes of 30 and 60 chews. All chews are stored in handy foil zip-locked packs, so that they remain fresh for longer.
Flexadin products are available from your local vet practice or online from participating retailers.
All dogs are different, so the age at which their joints need support will vary. Some dogs will benefit from Flexadin Advanced at an earlier age than others. If you have any concerns about your dog’s joints or are worried that they are in discomfort – please discuss them with vet who will be able to recommend the best course of action.
Your dog should experience the positive effects of the new Flexadin Advanced within approx. two weeks, please use your scoring form with your vet to check on progress.
Once the Flexadin Advanced begins to take effect, your dog will experience its beneficial effects for as long as you use it – this can be for the long term. Please speak to your vet to work out your dog’s specific programme of care.
Many of the traditional joint supplements contain glucosamine and chondroitin. These ingredients are well-tolerated in combination with the UC-II® in Flexadin Advanced.
These diets customarily contain ingredients such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and glucosamine and chondroitin. We understand that glucosamine and chondroitin are well-tolerated in combination with the UC-II® and Boswellia Extract in Flexadin Advanced.
