What is Dasuquin?

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
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.

Customer Reviews
Dasuquin is rated 4.65 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cat Our vet recommended this as our cat got extremely stressed when we brought puppy home. He stopped going to bathroom which caused all kinds of UTI problems. He gets half a capsule daily and seems to calm him, and has alleviated some if the issues we were having.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonders Our Lil had knee replacement surgery in both knees at 8 and1/2 years old. Now at 11 years, she is running and playing like a younger dog. She sure keeps us on our toes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Aussie was attacked 3 yrs ago and almost died. She now has severe arthritis and hip displasia at only 7 yrs old. She has been on this for a little while and she is acting like a spring chicken again. Even loving to try and get my 13 month old son to "chase" her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpfull Hint dogs with sensative stomachs My APBT who has major knee issues and surgery's has been on this product for some time now, with good results, BUT like may dogs, getting him to take any medication is a problem...regardless of flavor. I usually have to put the pill down his throat....he's slick , you can not disguise it. He also has a sensitive stomach so I give him a half a pill in the morning with his breakfast and the other half a dinner...this seems to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This stuff is a miracle. Took my cat to the vet because somehow he hurt himself jumping and he was dragging his back legs. I thought it was serious but the vet explained since he was a big, older cat, he shouldn't be taking insane dives off the furniture. She recommended dasuquin and almost immediately, he became a new cat. He doesn't limp anymore and he runs around the house like a kitten. Because he is playful, he's starting to lose weight. Can't recommend it enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Cosequin Our kitty has a congenital hip problem, compounded by arthritis. She's been on Cosequin for some time, but the vet just switched her to Dasuquin, and after a month on it, she's definitely limping less and seems less hesitant to jump up on all of her perches and climb her kitty tree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product My cat is 17 years old. We started him on Dasuquin one month ago and are seeing significant improvement in his ability to get around. He is tossing his toys into the air and starting to play like he did years ago. I wish I would have known about this product years ago. I highly recommend it .

Q&A

My 14 year old Rat Terrier has been taking ½ tab of Glycoflex Classic for years. Starting Dasuquin and wondering if he needs to do the initial 4-6 weeks of one tablet since he has been on Glycoflex for so long? Or just start him on ½ tablet of Dasuquin?

Asked by: Mikber
Since your furry baby has been on the Glyco Flex Classic, which is a similar supplement, you may want to continue with the maintenance dose which is 1/2 tablet daily.

Is the Dasuquin capsules for cats digestable?

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

Started our 6 month old English Mastiff on Dasuquin due to early signs of hip dysplasia. Started having diarrhea the other day. Anyone else?

Asked by: Bandit
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.
