Which Cosequin® formula is right for my horse?

Cosequin has the right formulation for your horse’s joint health needs. The formulas are designed to provide different levels of support. Whether your horse is a reiner, show jumper, or trail blazer, young or old, there is a product to suit your horse’s needs. You should always ask your veterinarian to advise you on the best Cosequin formula for your horse. Below are guidelines to assist in making your choice.

Not All Brands Meet Label Claim

Whether a product meets label claim (contains the levels of active ingredients stated on the label) is important when choosing a joint health supplement. Unfortunately not all brands do meet label claim...

Whether a product meets label claim (contains the levels of active ingredients stated on the label) is important when choosing a joint health supplement. Levels of glucosamine in 23 equine joint health supplements were evaluated relative to the product label in a published study.† Nine (or 39%) of the supplements were found to contain less glucosamine than was listed on the product label with four (or 17%) of the supplements containing below 30% of the amount claimed.

The study authors also noted that ten grams of glucosamine daily is the current recommended administration amount for use in the horse. While all Cosequin Equine Powder products deliver at least this amount to an average size horse during the loading phase (initial 2-4 weeks), only five of the supplements in the study provided this amount at the administration levels recommended on the label.
