What is Cosequin for Cats?

Cosequin is a nutritional supplement that helps cats maintain healthy joints. Its been rated the number one 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.
For: Cats
 
Benefits:
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
Comes in a tasty chicken and tuna flavored sprinkle capsule

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.

Cautions:
Side effects are rare but may include diarrhea.

Learned by mistakes I just bought this from my cats Vet and paid $40.50 for it. I thought it was quite expensive, but needed it right away. Came home and looked up PetMeds and was dumbfounded at the difference in the cost. In the future, I will definitely buy it from PetMeds. 04/07/2011
Surprising UTI Treatment Like the reviewer below, our vet also recommended Cosequin for bladder infections. I found our poor cat in a bush on a rainy day when he was about 4 weeks old. After bottle feeding him and then weaning him, the food we weaned him on caused a kidney disorder called Fanconi Syndrome (have to watch out for foods that contain products made in China!). It is usually fatal in cats but we were lucky enough to catch it. Long story and chain of events but with the involvement of some amazing professionals, he is still with us. Now, due to the kidney disorder, he gets chronic UTI's. Our vet, who is one of those amazing professionals, recommended Cosequin for his UTI's. Since giving him this supplement daily, he hasn't had a UTI since! With everything else this poor cat has been through and the daily treatment regime he has to undergo for his disease, it is really nice that he doesn't have to suffer with chronic UTI's on top of it! 04/07/2011
Really awesome product My 15yr old (16lb) cat Codi is feeling so much better, She has arthritis in her back. She was limping, couldn't jump well, had a hard time jumping down from our bed, hard time going up and down the stairs. Her main problem was constipation. The Dr. said she wouldn't push hard to use the bathroom, because it hurt her back too much. I have to tell you our Vet prescribed this for her last month. And within a week or so she was more spry and frisky than she has been in years. Her eyes seem brighter and she seems so much happier. I would recommend this product to anyone! Hope this helps. 03/29/2011
Spry Kitty! We have 12-year old black cat who was getting on in years, and seeming a bit stiff. He took the stairs very slowly, and kinda limped around our condo. He was mostly interested in napping, no longer wanted to play, and couldn't jump very easily. After giving him Cosequin, he runs, jumps, and plays with our younger cat! He's more active and spry than he's ever been, and now the difficulty is keeping him off the countertops and table! Such a huge difference. To give him the pill, we twist it open and sprinkle the powder over some wet food. He loves it and begs for it every night, so no issues there getting him to eat it. 02/10/2014
Great Product Cannot give it a rating on taste, but the easiest way for us to give it to our kitty for her bladder issues is by getting the entire capsule to the back of her throat and have her swallow it. Gabby does not fight us, so she is extremely easy to medicate. The other reason for doing it this way is that she is also on an anti-depressant. She gets a half pill of that every other day and the easiest way to do that is to slip the half tablet into the Cosequin capsule and give it to her. Works like a charm. 09/19/2013

okay - this answer from your Pharmacy is in direct contradiction from the instructions. According to the instructions, the pills should be given DAILY for 4 - 6 weeks or improvement.

however, Gary wrote

"Cosequin for Cats should be given every OTHER day. Do not give it daily."

Please clarify

I just read the answer to a question and an intern here states that "The issue is that there's SIGNIFICANTLY less Glucosamine in Cosequin. There's not as much of a difference in the amounts of Chondrointin in Cosequin but it is a lot less as well. " in comparison to Dasuquin.

How can that be? When I look at the list of ingredients in Cosequin & Dasuquin , the amounts are the SAME for cats. Please clarify as I do not see any difference between them in those ingredients

It's a little difficult to get my cat to eat the powder mixed with her food. Can I give her treats instead of the powder on some days? Or simply treats in addition to the powder?
