What is Cosequin for Dogs?

Cosequin for Dogs is a nutritional supplement that helps dogs maintain healthy joints. It has been rated the number one veterinarian-recommended joint health supplement brand. Cosequin's active ingredients include glucosamine and chondroitin, and it can have a positive impact on joint health, while avoiding the side effects that can sometimes accompany prescription drugs. It is available in regular strength capsules and regular strength and double strength capsules and chewable tablets.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:
  • Supports & maintains joint and connective tissue health
  • Helps support cartilage matrix production & protects existing cartilage from breakdown
  • The double strength formula contains 500 mg of glucosamine and 400 mg of chondroitin
  • Comes highly recommended by veterinarians
  • No reported side effects
How Cosequin Works:

Cosequin for Dogs contains glucosamine, which is a natural compound that is found in healthy cartilage in both humans and pets. It helps hydrate healthy joints by increasing the production of molecules that bind and hold water in the cartilage. Healthy cartilage provides cushioning which helps protect a pet's joints while exercising. Many believe that it provides clinical benefit in the synovial fluid by strengthening cartilage and aiding glycosaminoglycan synthesis. Further research on the effectiveness of glucosamine is still needed, but many of our customers find it to be very beneficial to their pets. The glucosamine is used in conjunction with sodium chondroitin sulfate, an important structural component of cartilage that provides much of its resistance to compression.

Cautions:

Side effects are rare, but may include diarrhea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle! Someone recommended cosequin for our 11 year old dog who had suddenly become very lethargic. We suspected he was in pain and xrays showed arthritis in hip. Started him on cosequin and he's feeling like a puppy again! Actually brought the ball over to play! We now have all of our other dogs on maintenance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chewable I have been using this for over a year after my vet recommended it. We have had great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walking Again! My girl Jazz is a 7 year old golden/cocker mix and has hip dysplasia and arthritis. She limped when she walked and when she tried to play would whimper when she would try to run. I could tell she wasn't enjoying her life and decided to try the Cosequin. After a couple of days I could see a difference. She was able to walk again without pain and now is even playing and enjoying life. I am so glad that I bought this product and will continue to do so.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be Careful! Wrong image appears I bought t his recently. When you go to the Cosequin page it shows an image of chewable tabs bottle and an order option is hilited with a yellow square around one order option. This is not the order option for chewable tabs! I now have a bottle of big capsules that are not chewable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working My dog suddenly developed some major walking and getting up problems, and she is not old. She is on anti-inflammatory pills, but when I started giving her the Cosequin, I could definitely see an improvement. Thumbs up!
Date published: 2016-06-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is doing much better with this! My dog has arthritis and since she started using the Cosequin she is doing much better. She was having trouble with standing up from laying down on our hardwood floors, climbing up onto our couches and beds, and having trouble walking. Now since using this product she can do all that and then some!!!

How likely is my 13 pound peeke-poo going to eat the Cosequin chewable tablet?

She had lyme disease in the past and sometimes has stiffness and limps.
Asked by: Bella
They are like roast beef flavor so its like a treat to them. If you have that extremely picky Furry Child you can always put it in Peanut Butter.
