Cosequin plays an important role in maintaining optimal joint function. Healthy articular (joint) cartilage is crucial to joint utility. Cosequin helps support cartilage production and protect existing cartilage from breakdown. Cosequin is the only glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate supplement that has been shown safe, effective, and bioavailable in peer-reviewed, published, controlled, U.S. veterinary studies. Cosequin is manufactured following standards similar to those practiced by the pharmaceutical industry.

Cosequin is available in Double Strength (DS) capsules and tasty chewable tablets and in Regular Strength capsules and soft chews for dogs.

Glucosamine

Glucosamine hydrochloride acts as a building block of cartilage by supplying a key nutrient that keeps cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly.

Chondroitin & Manganese

Chondroitin sulfate blocks the enzymes that break down cartilage. Manganese ascorbate is added to help optimize the production of cartilage components.

Usage Info

Administration: Cosequin for Cats

Initial Period 4-6 Weeks
Body Weight Administration
Under 10 lbs 1 capsule sprinkled on food daily
Over 10 lbs 2 capsules sprinkled on food daily


The capsule may be "pilled" if more convenient. Once desired response is obtained, capsules may be administered every other day to maintain your cat. Number of capsules administered may be increased at any time depending on your cat's needs.

If your cat eats dry food, the food may be moistened with a small amount of water so that 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.

This product is in a capsule to ensure an accurate amount is administered to your cat.
