About Phycox®

A Multicomponent Joint Health Supplement

A Joint Supplement With Noticeable Benefits

DOGS: An observational safety study* with 12 dogs documented no adverse events even with oral administration of 16 times the labeled dosage of Phycocyanin. The dogs remained healthy and maintained body weight throughout the course of the study without any dose-related adverse events reported.

A clinical study* evaluating 69 dogs with joint discomfort that received Phycox Soft Chews to help support healthy joints showed statistically significant owner-perceived improvements in mobility, playfulness, alertness, activity level, ability to rise, discomfort level and enthusiasm to run outside. The result was happy dogs and happy owners.

HORSES: A blinded clinical study* of 41 collegiate competition horses (20 were given Phycox-EQ) showed a trend toward improvement of their joint mobility. Phycox MAX EQ contains 3X the Phycocyanin and an additional antioxidant blend, compared to Phycox-EQ, to support normal recovery time after strenuous activity and joint, muscle and bone health.

Phycox is the only joint health supplement with a novel, patented joint support matrix containing phycocyanin. Phycocyanin is a natural antioxidant that has powerful free radical scavenging properties and supports the body's normal defense against the harmful effects of free radicals that cause cellular damage and inflammation. Clinically, this may help ease discomfort associated with normal daily exercise and activity. (US Patent 7,025.965)

Dogs and horses love the taste of Phycox soft chews and granules. In fact, we guarantee the palatability of our products. If your clients are not 100% satisfied with the palatability of Phycox Soft Chews or Equine Granules, Dechra will unconditionally replace any product returned to your clinic.

Phycox is a patented concentrated source of Phycocyanin

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. The Phycox patented process produces a highly concentrated source of Phycocyanin, that helps support bone, muscle, and joint health. Phycocyanin is harvested from a surface algae found in Kalamath Lake in Oregon. It is natural pigment that protects the algae and has been found to be a potent antioxidant neutralizing reactive oxygen species and preventing damage to mitochondrial cell walls by inhibiting microsomal lipid peroxidation.
