Flex-N-Free is a unique protocol consisting of 10 clinically proven premium grade nutrients, micronutrients and minerals in their most bioavailable form. It restores calcium balance, improves flexibility, and lubrication, and supports the integrity of the joint, the collagen, synovial fluid, ligaments, tendons, and bones.
If you are reading this because your dog has arthritis, you have two choices- pharmaceuticals, like steroids and NSAIDS, or nutraceuticals (natural remedies). While there are many natural remedies to choose from, only Flex-N-Free has a comprehensive formula to address all three joint issues: lubrication, ligament & tendon strength, and inflammation.
Drugs should only be considered as a last resort. It is difficult to get off drugs once you begin administering them. Also, they do not cure, they simply mask the pain. If your dog is already on drugs, they can be weaned off with Flex-N-Free. Flex-N-Free restores all aspects of joint function.
There are at least 14 different forms of arthritis. Some are quite serious; all are painful. Arthritis is one of many diseases that develop when a dogs immune system breaks down. You pets immune system breaks down when it does not get the nutrients it needs. Thanks to Flex-N-free, most arthritis, even genetic predisposed arthritis, like hip displasya, can be mitigated without resorting to steroids or other forms of medication!
Flex-N-Free is a pleasant tasting powder that can be added to any food.

" I also ordered the Combo Canine Flex Lipids for our 8ish year old pound scrounge named Tater Tot who tore his ACL on both his back legs. He was on another brand of glucosamine/conjointin pill and was doing OK but not great on it. Tater Tot has also shown much improvement on the Combo Canine Flex Lipids program. He still is sore sometimes when he runs and plays too much but he's much brighter and his back legs definitely seem to bother him less. Those torn ACL's are a bugger. The only other option for him was surgery which I wasn't too keen on because of the cost and who knows how he'll do even if he did have the surgery. Thank you, Vitality Science for great products and great customer service. It's nice to call and actually get a human who knows the products and can answer all your questions. I've already recommended VS to my dad."
