TECHNYFLEX CANINE - A Superior Choice For Canine Arthritis


Dr. Rob Willis, Veterinarian Canine & Equine Arthritis Specialist

I often get asked why TECHNYFLEX is a superior treatment choice for canine arthritis. The answer is simple – most common oral joint supplements (even the ones carried by many veterinarians) generally contain a mixture of ingredients such as abalone and shark cartilage, along with Greenlipped Mussel (GLM). But, TECHNYFLEX contains only one ingredient – New Zealand Greenlipped Mussel. 

In my opinion, the only ingredient in these other supplements that actually helps animals with arthritis is Greenlipped Mussel, and so the quality of the pain relief and joint benefits provided by these other products is directly related to the quality and amount of the GLM they contain.

  • Abalone is often added to supplements as a “geriatric boost” or “feel good” ingredient, but it has no proven benefits to joints or to animals suffering from the effects of arthritis.
  • Shark cartilage has been harvested since gaining popularity in the early 1990’s related to a misconception that sharks don’t get cancer. There’s actually no truth to this myth and the use of shark cartilage in both human and veterinary products is simply not effective.
  • Greenlipped Mussel, however, has been scientifically proven to aid in the management of arthritis providing strong relief for painful joints. The active ingredient in GLM is the Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) content, and that varies widely depending on the quality of the Greenlipped Mussels used in the product.   The concentration of EFA’s differs greatly from product to product, and that is why some GLM products seem to have minimal effect on arthritis symptoms, while others like TECHNYFLEX, which contains only the highest quality Greenlipped Mussels with no additives or fillers, works phenomenally well. Greenlipped Mussels also contain naturally occurring glucosamine, chondroitin, and even some hyaluronic acid, all of which are extremely beneficial for improving overall joint health.

The higher the concentration of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids in a supplement, the stronger the anti-inflammatory effect and consequently the more significant its ability to relieve pain and manage arthritis in dogs. And TECHNYFLEX CANINE contains over 100 mg of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids per serving. 

That’s why I highly recommend TECHNYFLEX CANINE for dogs of any age suffering from arthritis-related inflammation, joint pain, and mobility issues.
