What is Dasuquin®?
Dasuquin for Cats is a joint health supplement that goes above and beyond other glucosamine supplements on the market. It is the most complete joint support supplement available.
Dasuquin for Cats contains the trademarked ingredients FCHG49® Glucosamine, TRH122® Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, and NMX1000® Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables. It's available in a tasty, easy to administer capsule with natural chicken and tuna flavors.
ASU is an ingredient obtained from avocados and soybeans that is used for joint health.
The glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate support cartilage matrix production and help block enzymes in joints that break down cartilage, and the ASU complements their effects for more comprehensive joint health support. Our trademarked glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate and avocado/soybean unsaponifiables together were shown in cell studies to be better than the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate alone at inhibiting expression of several agents involved in cartilage breakdown.

Initial Period - 4 to 6 weeks

Capsules may be given once or twice a day depending on your cat's feeding schedule. 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. A maintenance level can also be used long-term on healthy cats to help support their joints.
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.
Capsules may be "pilled" if more convenient.
