What is Cosequin® for Cats?
Cosequln, the #1 Veterinarian recommended retail joint health supplement brand, 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 against existing cartilage from breakdown. Cosequin contains FCHG49® Glucosamine Hydrochloride and TRH122® Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate*, an exclusive trademarked combination of ingredients. Cosequin is manufactured following standards similar to those practiced by the pharmaceutical industry.
There are not many joint support options available specifically for cats. There are some products used in dogs that are not as safe in cats. Cosequin for Cats has been shown to be safe in cats. Cosequin provides joint health support while maintaining your cats comfort level. Some veterinarians also recommend Cosequin for cats to help support urinary bladder health. The inner lining of the bladder wall is protected by a layer that contains some of the same compounds found in cartilage. This layer helps protect against urine and the waste products contained within it from seeping into and affecting the inner lining of the bladder. Since the low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate found in Cosequin is available to more than just cartilage cells, the bladder may use it to help support this protective layer.
Cosequin for Cats comes in a convenient sprinkle capsule specially formulated for cats.
