What is Dasuquin for Dogs and Cats?

Dasuquin, in formulations for both dogs and cats, is a nutritional supplement containing proprietary ingredients, which goes above and beyond other supplements with glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate to maintain healthy joints. It is considered the "next generation Cosequin."
 
For: Dogs and Cats
 
Benefits:
Comprehensive joint support health
Contains glucosamine, chondroitin and ASU

Dasuquin for Dogs and Cats
 

How it works:
Dasuquin's active ingredients include avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU) which have shown to help protect cartilage and improve joint function. The ASU also helps potentiate the activity of Glucosamine and chondroitin. The combination of all three ingredients supports cartilage production and blocks enzymes that break down cartilage in your pet's body. Glucosamine 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. Further research on the effectiveness of glucosamine is still needed, but many of our customers find it to be very beneficial to their pets.

Cautions:
None

Dasuquin 4.6 5 46 47
New dog! We had started our 85lb large lab on joint supplements knowing she would have issues some day. She is 8 now and we had noticed her joints/hips bothering her after playing or going on hikes, then it progressed to her limping after getting up after laying for awhile. We made the switch from the petstore (cheaper) brand to Dasuquin and have a new dog! She recently went on a three day trip with us backpacking and hiking and not once did I see her bothered (I was sore tho haha). I stand behind this product ALL THE WAY! I have not seen her have an issue lately at all, just simply amazing, got my lab back with lots of adventures left!!! 08/28/2014
Other choices PetMeds also sells Super Joint Enhancer Liquid. This spray is much cheaper that Dasuquin and has more Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Chondroitin Sulfate. Look the med up and compare. 06/27/2014
Great Product I have tried this product on our two eleven year old Brittany's for a month. I have seen quite an improvement in both dogs. The most improvement is from our orange and white Brittany. This Brittany was hit by a car, on one of his unapproved excursions, which resulted in his pelvic and hip bones being severely broken. Surgery was successful, however, I'd noticed he was having a difficult time getting up off the floor and he would limp up stairs with visible pain. Within two weeks of taking this product he was getting up with ease and after thirty days is gliding up and down stairs with ease and grace just like he use to. Our liver and white Brittany also had trouble getting up and down off the floor and after two weeks on the product he no longer has trouble. I fully recommend this to any pet owner without reservation. 06/06/2014
Amazing! Didn't think anything could help my 14-year-old English Cocker with her arthritis...but this did! Hasn't helped with the back leg that slips out but her eyes are brighter, she's eating well, and has so much enthusiasm and energy. Thankful I found this to make her last days more comfortable. 09/27/2013
Works like magic! My 7 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has had trouble with slippage in his knees since he was about three. A few years ago we started giving him Dasuquin by recommendation of our vet and when he gets it regularly, he moves around like a puppy. When we slip up and forget to give it to him, he cries in pain in his sleep (bad human, BAD!) It works so well and he loves taking it, so now we make sure he gets his "treat" every day. Wonderful product, don't hesitate to try it out for your pet. 09/22/2013

Answer: 
Our English Yellow lab has been having very loose stools ever since we put her on Dasuquin, but not what would be considered diarrhea. Her appetite continues to be good and she has not lost weight, but the loose stools have been a daily event since she's been on it.
