What is Cosequin® Optimized with MSM?
Cosequin Optimized with MSM is a tasty powder containing higher levels of active ingredients as compared to the original researched formula with the addition of high quality MSM. The increased amounts of ingredients in Cosequin Optimized with MSM stem from current opinion suggesting that horses in work may benefit from higher levels of Glucosamine. MSM is an organic source of sulfur, a compound used by cartilage, and some veterinarians suggest using MSM to help manage joint health. This product is a convenient and cost-effective way to provide MSM along with the proven ingredients in original Cosequin.
