    Cosequin - Bonelets Plus Hip & Joint Support Supplement for Dogs - 100 Chewable Tablets

    Each Cosequin Hip & Joint Support Bonelets chewable tablet contains: 500 mg glucosamine hydrochloride and 500 mg methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). This is a joint support supplement for healthy dogs to help keep them active. If you notice your pet slowing down when climbing stairs or rising from a down position, try Cosequin DS, the most advanced protection and original researched formula.   Cosequin Bonelets can be administered as a treat or crumbled in your pet’s food. Number of bonelets can be increased at any time depending on your pet’s needs.

    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.

    • Joint support to help keep healthy dogs active
    • Tasty liver-flavored treat that's good for your dog
    • Cosequin Hip & Joint Support PLUS is formulated to contain 300 mg of Perna canaliculus (Green Lipped) Mussel
    • Compare to the level of Perna canaliculus (Green Lipped) Mussel in products such as Glyco-Flex™ and Synovi G3™

    The bond between humans and animals remains as strong as ever. This is expressed most clearly in the care and attention we lavish on our four-legged friends. Steady improvements in the quality of this care over the last few decades have led to a much higher quality of life for our animal companions. And just as some people need special care, so do some of our animal friends. Dogs age faster than we do. That’s why it’s so important to talk to your veterinarian about any support your dog may need – including in the areas of joint health and liver support. We’ve got products that can help.

     
    What is Cosequin for Dogs?
    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 contains TRH122 chondroitin sulfate, FCHG49 glucosamine and manganese ascorbate. These ingredients have been scientifically formulated to support and maintain the health of your dog’s joints. Published studies have shown that the specific combination of ingredients in Cosequin works together to maintain the structure of the cartilage in your dog’s joints while inhibiting the enzymes that break down cartilage. It is very important to note that the published studies on Cosequin do not apply to other brands.

    What is joint cartilage?
    Cartilage is a slippery and resilient tissue produced and maintained by its own specialized cells. It cushions the surfaces where two or more bones meet to form a flexible joint. When a dog is in motion there is tremendous pressure on the joint. Cartilage, joint fluid, and underlying bone work together like a shock absorber allowing flexible joint function. Because cartilage lacks a direct blood supply, nutrients must pass into the cartilage from surrounding tissue. These nutrients sustain cartilage cells and provide the components necessary to maintain a healthy cartilage structure. Scientists are not sure about all the factors that cause cartilage breakdown; however, they have discovered enzymes that play a role in the process. With age, injury, or over-activity, the process of breakdown can exceed the process of replacement leading to problems in the joints. These problems result in less flexibility. That’s when it’s time for Cosequin which maintains the cartilage structure and inhibits the enzymes that break down cartilage.

    How does Cosequin work?
    The exclusive combination of TRH122 chondroitin sulfate, FCHG49 glucosamine, and manganese ascorbate in Cosequin works together to maintain the structure of your dog’s joint cartilage while slowing the enzymes that break down cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride acts as a building block of cartilage by supplying a key nutrient that keeps cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly. Chondroitin sulfate blocks the enzymes thatbreak down cartilage. Manganese ascorbate is added to help optimize the production of cartilage components. Cosequin has been used since 1992 in animals to maintain joint health. While the ingredients have been used separately, published controlled studies show the patented combination of ingredients in Cosequin is superior to using the ingredients alone.

    Is Cosequin superior to other joint health supplements?
    Yes. On the label, different brands may appear to be the same, but unlike drugs, the ingredients in supplements are not equivalent. Cosequin, with its exclusive combination of high purity glucosamine, low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate and manganese ascorbate, is the only glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate supplement that has been shown safe, effective, and bioavailable in peer-reviewed, published, controlled, U.S. veterinary studies. Chondroitin sulfate is a large molecule that is difficult to absorb. Low molecular weight means the particle size of the molecule is smaller and more easily absorbed by the digestive system than other less pure forms of chondroitin sulfate. While the low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate is more expensive, it is supported by published, controlled U.S. clinical studies for efficacy, safety and absorption. Cosequin is manufactured in the United States by Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. following manufacturing standards adopted by the pharmaceutical industry. Each batch of Cosequin is subjected to stringent quality control measures and meets label claim. However, a number of reports including a study published in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association showed that up to approximately 80% of glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate brands did not meet their own label claim.

    I give my dog a food that contains glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate. Do I still need Cosequin?
    Yes. None of the foods contain the researched combination of high quality ingredients in Cosequin. The amount of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in dog food is often minimal. Even if these diets contained high quality glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, a large-breed dog would need to consume more than the daily requirement of food to obtain the amounts of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate found in Cosequin DS. In addition, both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate may degrade when subjected to the heat or extreme pressure in the manufacturing process of commercial dog food.

    Can I give a supplement labeled for human use to my dog?
    Many human glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate supplements use substandard ingredients, and, as noted earlier, studies have shown that many do not even meet their own label claim for the ingredients listed on the bottle. With Cosequin each capsule or convenient tasty chewable tablet contains exactly what is stated on the label. These trademarked ingredients have been shown to be safe and effective in pets.

    When is the use of Cosequin recommended?
    Early action is always the best advice. Different breeds of dogs age at different rates. With regular check-ups your veterinarian can talk with you about your dog’s aging process. Your veterinarian may discuss weight control, selective use of medications, exercise and the administration of Cosequin. It is important to have your dog examined by your veterinarian if you notice the dog having difficulties climbing stairs, jumping into the car, going for walks or even getting up. Your veterinarian can advise you if Cosequin can help. Your veterinarian may also suggest using Cosequin as a protective measure. This can be important for maintaining an active life for many dogs, especially large breeds and working dogs of all sizes. Cosequin may also be used to help support cartilage following joint surgery.

    My pet just started Cosequin. What should I notice?
    Observe your dog closely, and notice whether he seems more comfortable performing everyday activities such as climbing up stairs, going for walks, or even getting up. Most people will observe gradual changes in their dog’s comfort level. In a published survey of over 3,000 veterinarians, over 80% of dogs administered Cosequin improved significantly in their mobility, level of comfort, and attitude. Overall, the veterinarians rated Cosequin as good to excellent.

    How long does Cosequin take to work?
    Since Cosequin is a supplement and provides nutrients to maintain your dog’s joint health, it works more gradually than drugs. Improvement on Cosequin can range from gradual to dramatic. Following the administration schedule on the label for your dog’s weight, we recommend an initial administration period of four to six weeks. Some dogs may show a response in a shorter period of time.

    Should I give Cosequin to all of my dogs?
    Research in dogs administered Cosequin has shown that if Cosequin is given prior to an injury, the animal returns to normal function much more quickly. In light of this research, Cosequin is recommended to protect cartilage in dogs that are overweight, working breeds, and large breeds, as well as the average “weekend warrior.” In order to gain the protective benefits of Cosequin in healthy animals, a low level of Cosequin may be used. The level for these pets varies, but the suggested maintenance level given every other day may be adequate.

    Are there any side effects?
    Cosequin offers unparalleled safety. A safety study in dogs demonstrated no adverse effects of Cosequin administration on blood work parameters, including complete blood count, biochemical, and clotting values. Some dogs may experience a mild gastrointestinal upset such as that which occurs when switching foods. If this is the case, you can try offering Cosequin with a meal.

    Should I exercise my dog while he is on Cosequin?
    Exercise is important for optimal joint function as well as weight control for the overall health of your pet. Joint movement is needed to circulate fluid around the cartilage as well as to bring nutrients and to remove waste products. It has been shown that when joints are immobilized, cartilage structures break down at a rapid rate. Consult with your veterinarian, but in most cases, moderate exercise is recommended. Walking on sand or another soft surface or even swimming will help circulate needed nutrients and reduce excessive stress to the cartilage. It is important not to push your pet but to exercise at a comfortable pace.

      my dog has been on this for two months now and i see no change in her pain or walking. Now, I don't know how long it is supposed to take to make a difference but I won't be ordering it again. But I must say they like the taste and sometimes that's half the battle. And maybe she's not responding through no fault of the product. can't be sure. I find aspirin therapy in the long run is about the only thing you can do. ease their pain so they can walk comfortably and sit comfortably.

      I have just ordered my second bottle of this item and am very happy and surprised at how much my 12 year old dog is doing better since I put him on this supplement instead of the one my Vet gave me to use. I researched the use of the green lipped mussle, which is in this product, and found that the research being done has shown it has been a great help to humans so thought it would be worth trying it on my dog who had knee surgury two years ago but was getting much more stiffness and problems when getting up since then. I have noticed in the past month he seems much more limber, is not getting up stiff and unable to move well, and is even starting to run a little when I take him out and is again initiating play. This is a great product and I feel it has given my little guy a new lease on life.

      Our two dogs have had surgery - one for a broken bone one for a torn ACL. Both had considerable pain and limping even a few months after the surgeries. After starting them on Cosequin, they both showed remarkable improvement within a couple of weeks. Now, they both enjoy walks and play without pain or any sign of discomfort. One dog is 8 and the other 3 years old. They both love the bonelets (they think they are getting a treat!) and we are very happy with the product. We were paying almost twicw as much for the same product at the pet store and are ecstatic that we now get the benefits of the product for a much reduced price!

      This product works well for my 3 yr old lab. He will need a hip replacement as he ages but I find he does not limp since he started taking this supplement. I feel that the green lipped mussel has made a huge difference in his gait.
