Had tried other arthritis products in the past & was a little sceptical in trying 4CYTE Canine, however, having 2 giant breed dogs in an older age group (9 yrs) who suffer some arthritis, I was open to trying this product.
So VERY pleasingly, I began to see much improvement in just 2 weeks. I could rave on but can only suggest strongly to give 4CYTE a try for any pet suffering arthritic conditions. I am extremely happy & so are my dogs now.
My shih tzu has IVDD and tries to run, wrestle etc with her sisters....after being on 4cyte Canine Joint Support Supplement for two weeks, she is now running and joining in with them. Not sure if it is a co-incidence or effective treatment, but I feel it is the latter. We are thrilled and would recommend this product happily
Amazing for my dog’s joint issues!
My small dog had surgery for a torn cruciate and afterwards I tried a number of different joint supplements. This is the only one that’s made an incredible difference and my dog now had no limping or lameness at all in her leg and is running and playing like a puppy. I bought a big tub of the Equine formula as it works out cheaper and the 4Cyte folks even sent me out a special scoop to ensure correct dosage. I never write reviews but I am incredibly impressed with this product. My dog will stay on it for the rest of her life to stay healthy and active.
For questions about Equine vs Canine 4Cyte...
We’ve put our 8 year old Bull Mastiff X on 4Cyte at the vet’s recommendation - more as a preventative. Our dog gets stiff and sore after a big run. I researched whether you can use the Equine version for dogs (the Equine version is a bit cheaper) and you definitely can. I emailed Interpath (the company that makes 4Cyte) about whether it is safe to use Equine 4Cyte on dogs, and this was their response:
Yes you can 4CYTE Equine for dogs, the only differences are flavour (the Canine is chicken, the Equine is raspberry), and a slight difference...in ratios. This means to achieve the right ratio feeding Equine you need to add one bead per canine scoop. So if you normally feed 4 canine scoops a day, you would increase the dose by 4 beads per day. Hope this helps everyone!

Time will tell
I've had my 2 dogs on this product for about 6 months. The dogs don't have arthritis or joint issues that I'm aware of so I don't have any inspiring testimonials to share. I've put on them on this product as my vet recommended it as a preventative measure against degeneration. In the past I had a cat that was very badly affected by arthritis so I want to help my dogs as much as I can. The product is annoying to dispense and it's very expensive. The last place I bought the 4CYTE from was Petceutics.
Great results in a short time
Our 13 year old ridgeback was not having a great time. She was struggling with the stairs and our steep yard. We started her on 4cyte 10 days ago and can already see results. She is out and about in the yard and has become playful again. Absolute life saver for her, better than we could have hoped. I am now taking the human version!
My 9 yr old lab hasn't looked back
My 9 yr old lab has a compressed disc in his neck and also developing pain in his hips. He was already on pain relief for his neck but since starting on 4cyte I am starting to see the clown in him come back, jumping and being more fluid when on walked. Love this product
Dogface is sooo much better
Luce's hip was causing him a bit of pain (puppy growth spurt - he's quite a big dog)so i researched and came across this product. One of the main reasons i chose this is it has an analgesic effect as well. It works brilliantly! He can go for a walk now without limping and he's moving around with no problems at all. I thoroughly recommend it!
Changed our lives!!
This has transformed the life of my beautiful 13yr Mastiff x Ridgeback Snoopy!
Shortly after bringing him home from the Pound in 2009 I noticed some swelling in his front left leg. After an inspection by our Vet it was revealed that his leg had been pinned at some stage. Short courses of Carprofen in those early years generally helped however age started to catch up a couple of years ago. Snoop started to avoid moving very much at all. Because of the lack of movement he gained a lot of weight which really did not help the situation. My Vet s...

Perfect for my 14 Year Old Lab
Oscar's on 3 monthly cartrophen but could hardly walk or get up after 2 months. Vet recommended 4Cyte and I was skeptical at first but no longer. He is now easily making it through the 3 month Cartrophen cycle. Oscar's 14, 40Kg and has had one knee reconstruction. All in all, I could not have hoped for better results.
Results within 2 weeks
I have a kelpieX who suffered a broken growth plate at approximately 9mths. She dealt with operation and convalescence as only a working dog can!!! At age 3&1/2yrs she has now been diagnosed with arthritis in that leg. A 1/2hr walk was enough for her to lift her sore paw but any longer than 3 or 4 minutes of stick/ball fetching left her noticably limping.
She has been on Equine 4cyte for 2 weeks with noticeable improvement. A 1 hr walk is no problem (for her!) And a 10 minute session of ball shows no limping or even paw lifting (although i do...

Dog's movement and flexibility much improved
4Cyte is advertised as a supplement for canine joint health. Having read very favourable reviews (mainly from the US) I decided to try it, starting in December 2015. My 12 year old blue-heeler had been looking and acting like an old dog. Within a month she was showing more flexibility, less pain, a greater willingness to walk and chase balls. Now (late July 2016) the benefits continue. This product is not cheap: a 100g course which will last 2 months for a medium-sized dog will set you back $55+. And you need to keep it going. But it certainly appears to be extending my dog's active life.
Questions & Answers
My 12 year old dachshund has been on the pellets for 5 months and we haven’t had any drama with them but tonight she’s had an upset stomach and was vomiting up little bits of what look likes jellies, I’m just trying to figure out if she’s eaten something she shouldn’t have or if this is what the pellets look like once digested? If you could please help that would be great.
I want to use my 4Cyte Equine for my 18 kg Border Collie. I only have the equine scoop so how much do I use fro my dog?
I have an 8 year old Japanese Spitz who started to show signs of hip discomfort. I put him on the pellets but I noticed he started making funny mouth movements and liciking up to his nose all the time. I didn't associate to 4cyte thought he had an oral problem. Vet cleaned his teeth and said everything was fine. I then realised hed only been doing it since taking 4cyte. Anyone else have this issue. He looks sad, must be affecting his mouth somehow
