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.
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

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.

Directions:

If your cat does not take the supplement contents when mixed into wet food, you can give Cosequin for Cats using a Pet Piller.

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
Great for arthritus My 17 yr old 8lb Siamese cat kept getting down in both her rear hips. She was taking steriods every 6 months. Like clockwork she would get down again. I put her on Cosequin and the change has been remarkable! She even plays with her toys again and chases the laser. It is like it took 10 yrs off her. She has been on it approx 7 months and is doing great. She can get up on the chaise when she wants. I recommend this to anyone who has a cat that is getting up in age. 10/08/2014
Does what it's supposed to do I truly believe this product helped with my cat's joint pain. She seemed more playful, quicker, and loving while on it. However, every time I give it to her she ends up losing the hair on her chin and develops a huge bump there. When I take her off the meds it goes away, and it comes right back when I start them again. Obviously something in this irritates her skin. Perhaps it's just the powder form, and I may have to find something else for her. 09/10/2014

Ever since I adapted her since she was 2 months old. She seems in a little over weight though I feed her raw feed diets and try to cut down her food. Anyway, she seems to prone to her joint pain or tissue pains on her limps ( 2 rear legs ) I brought her to see her doctor the results were fine ( no bone informities -- Osteochondrodysplasia, which caused by the cartilage defect that causes their ears to fold ) so the doctor said he would assume that she might playing too hard, which she normally does. This situation was happen to her left rear limp then, now it happens to her right rear limp again. So, my questions are : Is this product good for a young 1 year old kitty? Is this product good for healing tissue raptures and ligaments?
