    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
    Protects cartilage
    Allows pets to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle
    Dasuquin for Dogs is available in a tasty, easy to administer chewable tablet
    Dasuquin for Cats is available in a sprinkle capsule with tasty natural chicken and tuna flavors
    No adverse side effects
    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

    A+ Product Dasuquin has worked very well for my 4 year old lab! She has had knee trouble since she was a puppy and eventually progressed to where she could no longer go on walks or play outside without limping about. After 3 months on this product, she no longer limps and is able to play like a normal dog! I can still tell she has soreness in her legs after longer walks, but it sure beats where she was! 03/06/2015
    Great Product Great Price Our long haired mixed breed cat is 13 years old. We had noticed about a year ago she was limping and having a hard time going up stairs. We took her to the vet who recommended giving her Dasuquin. I went online to PetMeds and found I could get two bottles for the price the vet got for one. I ordered the product. We began giving Muffin the Dasuquin and within two weeks she is back to her old self running and jumping on her cat perch.We give her one tablet everyother day and she has ben great ever since. What a great product 02/25/2015
    Excellent Product My 2-year old Shar-pei was having some stiffness in his knee joint on his back left leg. He is very young and I was concerned that if I ignored the problem, it could become worse and worse over time. It turns out his knees are turned outwards a little bit. He takes his Dasuquin everyday and I have seen a HUGE difference. If he lays down on that leg for a prolonged period of time, he is no longer stiff when he stands up. He will eventually have arthritis down the road, but because I have taken steps now, he will be much better off in the future. 01/26/2015
    My two Maine Coons have been taking this for severe hip and joint problems and now they FLY THREW THE AIR WITH EASE. It really works with my two BIG boys who are 18-21 lbs. They are not overweight. That is the weight for Maine Coons. My first cat took it and he was larger cat 30lbs. It did him very very well 12/31/2014
    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

    Can the Dasuquin capsule be given orally to a cat instead of sprinkling contents on food?

    Answer: 
    You can put it in a salmon pill pocket and they eat it. Some cats will eat the capsule so use care like you would with children not to leave them around unsupervised. They are for sure to get the proper dose it they eat the capsule vs eating the food unless they eat all the food in one setting.
    Good Luck

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. No, it should be sprinkled on the food as the capsule itself may not be fully digested.

    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.
