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.
*Source: Survey conducted in July 2012 of small animal veterinarians who recommended oral joint health supplements.
The recommended initial administration period is four to six weeks; however, some dogs may respond in a shorter period of time. The number of scored chewable tablets may then be reduced to the maintenance level.
*Once consistent improvement has been seen, these maintenance levels may be reduced to an every other day administration. The maintenance level can also be used long term on healthy dogs to help support their joints.
