What is Cosequin for Cats?

Cosequin is a nutritional supplement that helps cats maintain healthy joints. It has been rated the #1 veterinarian-recommended joint health supplement brand. It is also recommended by veterinarians to support bladder health. Cosequin has a positive impact on joint health, while avoiding the side effects that can accompany prescription drugs.



  • Effective joint pain relief in cats
  • Contains TRH122® low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate, which makes it easier for the digestive system to absorb
  • Comes highly recommended by veterinarians
  • Considerably fewer side effects than other similar medications
  • Also supports bladder health
How it works:

Cosequin for Cats contains a unique combination of TRH112® sodium chondroitin sulfate, FCHG49® glucosamine hydrochloride, and manganese ascorbate to help maintain the structure of your cat's joint cartilage while slowing down the enzymes that break down cartilage. Since the inner lining of the bladder wall is protected by a layer which contains some of the same compounds that are found in cartilage, Cosequin for Cats may also be used to support bladder health.


Side effects are rare but may include diarrhea.

Brand Name:

Cosequin For Cats (Nutramax)

How to Use
  • Cosequin For Cats is a sprinkle capsule. The sprinkle capsule is meant to be opened and the contents mixed with the cat's food.
  • If your cat does not take the supplement contents when mixed into wet food, you can give Cosequin for Cats using a Pet Piller.

If your cat eats dry food, you can moisten the food with a small amount of water to help the powder stick to the food.

Cats: - Initial dose (4 to 6 weeks)
Under 10 lbs
1 capsule sprinkled on food daily
Over 10 lbs
2 capsules sprinkled on food daily
Cats: - Maintenance (after 4 to 6 weeks)
All weights
Once desired response is obtained, capsules may be administered every other day for maintenance. Number of capsules administered may be increased at any time depending on your cat's needs. If your cat ears dry food, the food may be moistened with a small amount of water so the powder sticks. Alternatively, the contents of the capsules may be mixed with a small amount (i.e. tablespoon) of wet or moist food to ensure your cat eats the entire amount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! We love this product for our 11 yr old cat Shadow! She had stopped jumping up on the bed and chairs. We thought it was just age related, but it wasn't until she would let out a loud meow when ever she would lay down I knew something was wrong. I immediately looked on the internet and found this product and started her on it immediately. It didn't take long for me to notice a difference. Noticed a difference the first week she was on it. She is now hopping up on our bed and chairs. It's as if nothing ever happened to her. She's been on it for 3 months now. I highly recommend this product! We are also giving her fish oil (salmon) we purchased from the vitamin shoppe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results My cat is 18 years old. She was no longer able to climb on our bed, her favorite place to sleep at night. I started her on Cosequin at my veterinary's recommendation about 5 months ago. The results are amazing; she climbs, she runs and chases various toys which she has not done in a long time. I give her 1 capsule in her wet food every morning. Thank you for a remarkable product and for adding quality of life to my cat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cosequin is great for my geriatric cat My Kona is almost 20 years old with arthritis, dementia, and thyroid disease. Daily Cosequin has enabled him to walk up the home stairs and onto the bed using the "doggie steps". Thank you for giving him better quality of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it promises if you can get it in them. My 2 cats get this every AM. One is 11, the other 15. I have seen an improvement in mobility. The issue now is getting it in them. Mixed in wet food or sprinkled on dry and, after a month, they will not touch. May try mixing in broth as an option. Any suggestions?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20 years old and fabulous . My 20 year old girl is doing great on Cosequin. She was developing some stiffness and weakness in her back legs and hips. She has been on Cosequin for 7 months. She has no sign of discomfort or limp in just a short time. She takes this medication everyday in her wet feed. It must not have a taste because my girl is very picky with flavors. I highly recommend this everyone.

My cat won't take consistently in powder even with switching up what food I put it in. She lets me pill her easily- can this be given in the capsule form?

Asked by: Connie
If your cat does not take the supplement contents when mixed into wet food, you can give Cosequin for Cats in the capsule form.

Does Cosequin come in liquid form for cats?

Asked by: Clairellen
You could I am quite sure have the tablets dissolved in tuna or chicken flavored solution by a compounding pharmacy. My cat gets some meds this way as recommended by Veterinarian. The only question is whether or not Cosequin could be preserved in solution.

Is there an arthritis medicine for cats with no fish products (fish oil, tuna, shrimp, etc) in it?

My cat is allergic to fish products, the slightest amount of even fish oil and she has an allergic reaction.
Asked by: jami
The capsules are filled with a white powder so they do not have oil in them.One of the ingredients is "Glucosamine hydrochloride" and is derived from SHELL FISH. Your cats allergy may include shell fish but they are different from oily fish like tuna.

is cosequin a pain med.?

I have a 16 yr. old cat, he seems to be in moderate pain probably due to arthritis and limps favoring the lt. hip. I had him checked by the vet. last month, she did not seem to think this was a problem to be worrying about, but I think he's in pain. You should know she found him to have a level 4 heart murmur, diabetes, and thyroid not working well. If you can't give me the answer to this question, I will not buy it.
Asked by: Deb Bassan
This product is not a pain med. It was very effective at relieving my cats pain and improved her mobility in just a few days. The cat was visibly happier.
