Q: How soon can I expect to see results from Flavocin?

A: For dogs with joint problems inflammation and pain should begin to disappear within 1-2 weeks of use. Dogs should begin to show increased mobility and flexibility in 3 to 4 weeks. Since all dogs are different, some respond well in less time, and some take more. A lack of a response may indicate that the recommended daily dosage was not enough for that animal. If that occurs, increase the dosage by one tablet per day for one week until positive results are seen, and if so, please contact us so that we can be sure that you're next shipment arrives when you need it. It is important to remember that consistent daily usage is best for positive long-term results. In fact, that’s why we offer our Flavocin Wellness Plan. It’s the smartest most economical way to guarantee your dog gets the micronutrients needed to live a long, happy and healthy life.
Q: What is the recommended dosage for my dog?

A: For small dogs up to 30 pounds you should give them 1 tablet per day. For those dogs that weigh between 31 and 60 pounds, they should get two chewable tablets each day (1 tablet in the a.m. and 1 tablet in the p.m.). And for large dogs over 60 pounds 3 tablets per day is ideal (2 tablets in the a.m. and 1 tablet in the p.m.)
Q: What makes Flavocin different from the other products out there?

A: There are joint formulas available for your dog and there are pet antioxidants out there too. Some are good… and some are not so good. And if you wanted both—you had to buy both. But now with Flavocin your dog is getting the very best of both worlds. And that’s what makes Flavocin so different. With Flavocin your dog is getting the very best joint formula and pet antioxidant in one easy-to-feed chewable tablet. Scientifically developed to treat both the symptoms and causes of joint problems Flavocin delivers micronutrients directly to joints… keeping cartilage, tendons, and ligaments healthy—and your dog pain free. Not only that, but Flavocin contains a powerful blend of antioxidants helping your dog fight harmful free radicals. Many scientists believe that free radicals may be a root cause of more than 60 diseases including certain types of cancer, cataracts, arthritis and heart disease as well as the aging process itself.
Plus, Flavocin comes with a 60-day 100% satisfaction guarantee. How many other dog products are so confident that their formula will work that they can afford to offer a guarantee like that? I think you’ll find there aren’t many at all!

Q: How long will my dog need to take Flavocin?

A: It is important to remember that consistent daily usage is best for positive long-term results. You should plan on giving your dog the recommended dosage of Flavocin for at least 30 days to see results. If you see noticeable improvement you can continue with the same amount for uninterrupted results. If you see imporvement with your dog's pain and mobility, you should continue to give them Flavocin. If you stop, the improvements will not last. That is why many of our customers prefer our Wellness Plan which locks in the lowest possible price and ensures that you don't run out.
Q: I've noticed several different brands of dog food in TV ads and at my local pet superstore with added supplements like glucosamine for "senior" or "mature" dogs. Won't this do the same thing for my dog as your product?

A: The good news is the commercial dog food makers are becoming believers in the health benefits of supplements like glucosamine… or else they wouldn’t be adding them to their pet foods. The bad news is that some manufacturers put just enough of the ingredient in a product to get it listed on the label… but it’s often in such a small amount that it provides no noticeable benefit. Studies show that to help treat joint problems, your dog needs 500 mg of Glucosamine HCl for every 30 pounds of weight—each and every day. And Flavocin contains 500 mg of Glucosamine in every chewable tablet! Pet foods simply do not contain that much in each serving. Why not? Because a 20 lb. bag of dog food would cost them (and you) a fortune. And one more point to remember… pet food makers often use chicken cartilage as a source of their glucosamine. Flavocin uses 99.9% pure Glucosamine HCl... and lots of it!
Q: My dog is a finicky eater. Will he like Flavocin?

A: Chances are pretty good (9 out of 10) that he will. Most dogs find the natural beef and liver flavors very tasty, and some even come running when they hear the bottle shake. However, in the rare case that dogs won’t eat the chewables plain, by themselves, you can easily crumble it and mix it in with their food.
Q: My dog is allergic to beef, or I am concerned about BSE contamination (mad cow disease). I see that Natural Beef Flavor is listed on your label. Will my dog be able to eat Flavocin?

A: The Natural Beef Flavoring in Flavocin is actually made from a vegetable base, and it has no beef products in it whatsoever, so it should be completely safe for your dog.

Q: I see some joint formulas for dogs with MSM in them? Is that OK to give to my dog?

A: According to the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) MSM or methylsulfonylmethane is not Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for dogs. However, all the ingredients in Flavocin are GRAS-approved by the AAFCO. The inclusion of MSM in some canine joint formulas is to supply elemental Sulfur, which is an essential ingredient for joint health and growth. We use the natural antioxidant Cysteine in our formula to provide that elemental Sulfur.
Q: My dog is on the borderline between the weights you specify for Medium and Large dogs. Should I give him the smaller dosage?

A: If dogs are between weight classes it’s probably best to opt for the higher class. Giving your dog a little extra “boost” with a larger dosage…maybe three tablets instead of two… can provide faster results. As your dog continues to improve you can cut back a little and use a maintenance dose for long-term health.
Q: Why are you giving away a $14.95 book FREE?

A: Many thousands of dogs are using prescription medications for their joint and hip dysplasia problems, and sometimes the prescribed medications don't have much effect — or can be just plain harmful to the dogs that take them — so I knew I had to do something. You see, lots of dog owners would prefer not to give their dog’s prescription meds, after all they aren’t cheap and the potential side effects were just too risky. So I did some research and discovered the book, "8 Weeks to a Healthy Dog". And reading it really opened my eyes! It’s packed with lots of great info on why dogs are so prone to joint problems and it described a low-cost, safe and effective treatment regimen to halt, reverse, and reduce the pain and inflammation resulting from osteoarthritis in dogs. Because this 246-page book has so much information in it I knew there was way too much information to share with you here, so I figured the best way was to give it to you so that you can see for yourself… and you won’t have to go through all the same research. And the truth is, by following a few simple steps as outlined in the book… it can absolutely, positively help your dog overcome joint problems. Using Flavocin and the information found in 8 Weeks to a Healthy Dog is a powerful one-two punch.

Q: Can my pet overdose on your product? What should I do if he eats the whole bottle?

A: We've had customers whose dogs who ate an entire bottle of tablets and the pet owners reported absolutely no adverse reaction. If the dog swallows a large amount of tablets, our vet recommends eliminating feeding of Flavocin for a week. Your dog may show symptoms of gastro-intestinal distress like vomiting or diarrhea, but these symptoms should be temporary. If your dog does get diarrhea, be sure to provide plenty of water. Your vet may choose to administer activated charcoal if these kinds of symptoms of irritation to the GI tract do occur.
Q: Can I give my dog my own glucosamine supplements?

A: You could, but you probably shouldn’t. Just because it’s safe for human use doesn’t mean it’s safe for dogs. Ibuprofen is a good example. Even though it’s OK for you and me, it can be toxic and fatal to dogs. In fact, you shouldn’t even give cat food to dogs. A good rule of thumb is to only give your dog foods, nutrients, and treats designed specifically for them. Because Flavocin has been developed with the aid of a clinical nutritionist and a staff veterinarian—exclusively for dogs—you can be sure it’s safe and effective.
Q: My dog is getting older, but isn't showing any signs of joint problems. Would there be any benefit to giving him the product before he starts to show symptoms?

A: That’s a tough question to answer. Even though we think the science proves that most every dog can benefit from Flavocin, maybe this is the best way to think about it: While your dog isn’t showing any signs of aging now… odds are, age is going to start catching up. It’s a hard fact of life—especially for dogs—since they age 7 times faster than we do. Scientists now believe that damage from free radicals is the number one cause of disease and aging in dogs. And the best way to fight free radicals is with antioxidants like those found in Flavocin. That’s why a lot of our customers give their dogs Flavocin right now—they are trying to prevent the problems before they happen. And it’s possible with Flavocin because it has a powerful blend of micronutrients designed to keep your dog’s natural healing process in high gear, and your dog active, healthy, and happy throughout its life.
Q: How do I cancel my enrollment in the Wellness Plan?

A: It’s easy. Just call 1-877-776-7381 or send an email to customercare@propetsupport.com (make sure you include your order# in the email) and you will no longer be sent any more product and your credit card will no longer be charged).

Q: I'd like to order your product, but I'm nervous about using my credit card over the Internet. Is it safe to do so, and if I'm still worried about it how else can I order?
