Why don't you post some links for us? Looks like they aren't products that folks have used before.

From the looks of the daily doses of Rematrix, there is not enough of anything to be effective one way or another.
I feed 1000 of vitamin C and 400iu of E daily, this is just a taste for a daily dosage in their product.
And with a large breed dog, you'd have to give 4 chews a day to give them not even a daily dose. I can buy from a human pharmacy for much les$.
I'd rather pick and choose the supplements(and dosage) I give, and pay less doing so.

Yes I am using Gloucosamine/MSM I take for my dog. I wanted to know what the difference is with this product that they think is far superior.

Sometimes you don't need a lot of one ingredient (like Vit C) if the ingredients act synergystically with each other.

They don't look hugely different from each other, but it looks like the Phycox has a few more things to inhibit inflammation (like the tumeric, phycox), while the Rematrix has more additional joint health stuff (like collagen, HA). There's a higher percentage of creatine in the rematrix, which might not be good if the dog tends to run dehydrated.

Interesting products. If you try them, let us know how they work.

Phycox:
Glucosamine Hydrochloride 450 mg
Methyl sulfony methane (MSM) 400 mg
Flaxseed Oil 400 mg
Creatine monohydrate 250 mg
Turmeric 50 mg
Phycox 30 mg
Eicosapentaenoic Acid 9 mg
Docosahexaenoic Acid 6 mg
Boron 100 mcg
Alpha Lipoic Acid, Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Calcium Phosphate, Citrus Bioflaconoids, Grape Seed Extract, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Magnesium Stearate, Manganese Sulfate, Marine Lipid Concentrates Natural Liver Flavor, Selenium, Sucrose Zinc Sulfate.

ReMatrix
Glucosamine HCl* 1000 mg
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) 1,000 mg
Creatine Monohydrate 1,000 mg
Chondroitin Sulfate 100 mg
Flaxseed Oil 600 mg
Collagen 100 mg
Hyaluronic Acid 20 mg
EPA 18 mg
DHA 12 mg
Vitamin C 50 mg
Vitamin E 50 IU
Manganese 10 mg
Zinc 10 mg
Grape Seed Extract 10 mg
Citrus Bioflavonoids 10 mg
Alpha Lipoic Acid 10 mg
Inositol 10 mg
Choline 10 mg
L-Glutathione 10 mg
