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)

  • 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosequin for Cats Really Works! My male cat Vincent was having trouble walking and was clearly in pain. He could no longer jump up on the counter and even had trouble getting up to a chair. After a week on Cosequin, I noticed a remarkable change. He moves like a much younger cat and is even hunting again. This stuff works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more clicking! My 10 yr old cat has had hip displaysia on her right side all of her life. I noticed as she is getting older that she started to favor it just a little bit. And I also started noticing some clicking as she walks. Found this product and it makes all the difference. She is 11 lbs and I give her 1 capsule 4 times a week. Amazing results!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosequin is a win-win We have been giving our almost 17 year old Calico cat, Sue Ellen, Cosequin for a week now. Although we have only seen a small change in the way she moves, she definitely is more social and vocalizes more like she did several years ago. There is no doubt she feels better. And, she loves it! I sprinkle it on her wet food during her bedtime snack and she gobbles it down. We are looking forward to even more positive results as we continue to give it to her, but even if we don't get them, we could not be more pleased. I checked with our veterinarian before ordering Cosequin and he highly recommended we try it. He said it could not hurt her and fully expected it to help. He also suggested we buy it from 1-800-PetMeds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my cats life I use this because my cat had a uti and crystals and it almost killed him. The vet recommended this and he has not had any problems since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for bladder problems My cat was put on this by her vet after she developed Chronic Feline Idiopathic Cystitis, a condition in which her bladder is missing the mucus lining that protects from the acidity of the urine. Cosequin helps her by helping her body replace that missing lining, decreasing the bladder pain and imflamation that she feels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for joints I've been purchasing this product for several years. My cat is prone to UTIs & crystals. My vet recommended this to help with these issues. It really works.

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.

Dasuquin vs Cosequin for cats

My cat (13yrs) has been taking Dasuquin for 5-6 mo's & it has improved her pain alot.. The one differing ingredient is Avacado/Soy with Dasquin & Cosequin has Maganese 1 mg What makes one better than the other?? Should I try the other one?
Asked by: Josie Cat
The ingredients are almost identical. My cat was also given the Dasuquin at the vet's first for bladder inflammation, due to cystitis. After comparing & seeing ing.s were the same, I switched, & was so much cheaper! It still worked great! At 11 or 12 yrs old, I have kept him on it for joint maintenance.

Is it good for my 1 year old scottish fold kitty?

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?
Asked by: taktai
I would definitely start her on Cosequin right away. This product is good for any age. Studies have shown that this product feeds the tissue so in that sense, it may well have healing ability (I am not a Vet) but it definitely will strengthen overall. Knowing what I know about this product from demonstrating it, I would start all pets on it from kitten hood/puppyhood on up.This product was originally developed for race horses to help with their joints and legs so they could race.
