Cosequin DS for Medium/Large Dogs, 120 Chewables
Cosequin is a patented, scientifically researched nutritional supplement dispensed by thousands of veterinarians to help dogs maintain healthy joints. As dogs age, it is common for their joints to become less flexible which impacts their mobility and quality of life. You may have noticed that your dog has difficulty walking up stairs or jumping on the bed. While he used to be eager to play, now he is content to rest. Even at younger ages some dogs are subject to joint health concerns which affect flexibility and mobility.
- Cosequin DS double strength chewables are available in 90 and 120 count sizes.
- Cosequin regular strength capsules for small dogs and cats are available in 90 and 180 count sizes.
- Cosequin chewable tablets are available in 40, 120, and 250 count sizes.
- Cosequin Equine Powder is available in 1400, 700 and 280 gram bottles
Recommendation as a Supplement: The Initial Administration Period is 6 Weeks. Most animals should respond within this period. Improvement on Cosequin can range from gradual to dramatic. If the improvement is gradual, it may go unnoticed by the owner. It is therefore important to keep the animal at the initial amount for at least 6 weeks before deciding to discontinue the use of Cosequin. If there is gradual improvement and Cosequin is discontinued, a regression of clinical status can occur.
Maintenance Administration (After initial 6 week period)
Cats and dogs under 10 lb. can often have their dosage reduced to 1/2 capsule daily or 1 capsule every other day. 10 to 24 lb. can often have their dosage reduced to 1 capsule daily.
Cosequin® DS is available for dogs in tasty chewable tablets.
Ingredients: Glucosamine HCl, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, natural flavors, manganese ascorbate, gelatin, water, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, FD&C Red #3, FD&C Blue #1, and sodium lauryl sulfate.
COSEQUIN DS (DOUBLE STRENGTH) FOR MEDIUM AND LARGE DOGS:
Initial Administration (6 Weeks)
25-49 lb. - 2 capsules daily (1 in A.M./ 1 in P.M.)
50-100 lb. - 3 capsules daily (2 in A.M./ 1 in P.M.)
Over 100 lb. - 4 capsules daily (2 in A.M./ 2 in P.M.)
Maintenance Administration (After initial 6 week period)
Directions: The amount can be increased at any time depending on the pet's needs. If the pet does not respond as well when the level is decreased, then return to previous level. Remain on this amount for a month, then try again to gradually reduce. Sometimes an every other day amount or lowering the amount by 1/2 capsule rather than one capsule can be successful. Some pets will maintain at a lower amount during the summer months than the winter months. Also activity level can vary the requirements. In times of high physical demand, pets may require more Cosequin.
Cosequin DS double strength can be used on patients under 25 lb., however, 1/2 capsule increments must be used. For convenience, Cosequin regular strength should be used. Regular strength can also be used for maintenance of dogs weighing 25-49 lb. that maintain below one capsule daily of double strength.
The capsules can be pulled apart and the contents sprinkled on the pet's food. Wet or moist food works best. As an alternative, pets can be pilled or the capsules administered by wrapping in a small piece of food. Cosequin is palatable to dogs, cats and birds.
