Lydia’s Dasuquin Story

 

This is my old bulldog, Lydia's, story. She will be 12 on 12/19/2016. She was starting to slow down a bit so I started her on Dasuquin for large dogs. She has perked up and is far more active than she had been. 

Our youngest bulldog, Herbie, is 5 and he's been on it since October of 2013. I started him on it because two different specialists recommended your product. He is doing really well, too.

Thank you for making this product available. I recommend it to many fellow dog people every chance I get.

Zoe Loves Dasuquin!

 

We have a black Lab, Zoe, who is 2 years old. She has been on Dasuquin since she was a puppy, per our veterinarian's advice. Zoe has a nightly routine: eat dinner, have ice cream, go to bed, and get her Dasuquin. She will sit on the bed, staring up at the bag of Dasuquin. As soon as my husband gets the bag down, she starts drooling. This is the only thing she drools over. As much as she likes her vanilla ice cream, she likes her Dasuquin better.

If you ever need a spokesdog, Zoe is your dog. She would love the opportunity to tell other dogs about Dasuquin, and to become a star. 

Cosequin DS is King for Simmi and Jubi!


Simmi and Jubi are King Shepherds. Simmi is now five years old and running in the wind and the vet told us whatever you're giving him don't stop - well that would be Cosequin DS plus MSM soft chews. Since Jubi is now 7 we give it to her as well for continued healthy hips. We are totally dedicated to Cosequin for our Kings' continued health.

Dasuquin Makes Maddie a Happy Girl!


We adopted our dog Maddie when she was rescued from a shelter.  She had 2 knee surgeries 7 years ago.  With the help of Dasuquin she still runs like a puppy!  She is a great dog and I think her morning Dasuquin "treat" makes her a happy girl!

Tuffy is Tougher with Cosequin!


My Shar Pei/Lab mix Tuffy is a wonderful and very active dog! He was 7-1/2 when I noticed he was slowing down. I started giving him Cosequin (1 tab daily in the morning) and he is like a puppy again! Now, he is back to his old self sprinting around the backyard chasing squirrels and doing perimeter checks. I keep his Cosequin in my kitchen cabinet and every morning when I wake, Tuffy is there waiting for his Cosequin tablet-he thinks it's a treat! Thank you, Cosequin! We are so happy Tuff has the pep back in his step!

Quality of Life for my Elderly Cat!

 

My elderly female cat has had so many really good years because of your product. She is amazingly lithe, agile and cat-like for a 16 year old. Before I found Cosequin, she could barely walk some days. I am so grateful for this product.

Lucky Lady Is Living It Up!

 

This tablet has done wonders for my family member Lady...she is a saved pet from the shelter and has been a perfect and faithful member of our family. She is a farm dog and helps work my chickens when they get out, she loves to run and chase squirrels, and yes, loves to jump on our bed and sleeps with us. We came to the point where we had to help her to get on the bed, she just could not do it anymore. My poor girl was getting old before her time. The Dr. said try this Dasuquin...I felt yeah right, but for my girl I will try it...Double the level for the first month down to 1 every day and my Lady has become like a puppy again!!!! Thank-you...Thank-you for Dasuquin that has brought my Lady back to being herself!!! 

Dasuquin Does It Again!

 

After my dog, Chelsea, had CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) surgery I continued to use Dasuquin. I have used chondroitin/glucosamine for years and it's helped me and I think the Dasuquin has helped her ability to keep walking. Thanks Nutramax.

Yogi is a bear again!


Yogi is our 80 lb. 7 year old Chow Chow who had knee surgery in 2013 when he was 5 years old. In April of 2014 we relocated to a 3 story house with a basement. This house also has a minimum of 4 steps which must be climbed at all entrances to the home.

A few months before the move (around February 2014), Yogi started to "toe tap" and several DVM's told us he probably would need surgery. All agreed it would be best to wait until our relocation was complete prior to surgery.

Yogi's problems did not get better for obvious reasons once in our new home, but he did not let the steps stop him from "having fun" or going where ever he wanted to both inside and outside of our new house. Since both my husband and I had started new jobs and could not take work off to be with Yogi, our new vet said since he is not getting any worse, we can postpone the surgery until one of us is able to take some time off work.

Dasuquin was recommended in May 2014. After about 6 weeks, we noticed that Yogi stopped "toe tapping". He has been on the maintenance level since that time.  Yogi is now very active rolling on his back and kicking up his legs playing in the yard like he did when he was just a puppy! He has no problem with any of the steps and loves to run around the yard (about 3/4 acres) chasing chipmunks, bunnies and squirrels!

We are convinced that Dasuquin is the reason he is very happy.

We are very glad to share this story with you!

Joe’s on the GO!


One morning our 14 year-old cocker/lab mix couldn't use his back legs to lift the lower part of his body off the floor. We used a towel, put it under him, and helped him rise. He could walk, but when he went to lie down to rest, he couldn't get up. We took him to our vet thinking the worst. Our vet recommended Dasuquin. We thought, "What would a pill do?" We couldn't imagine it could help. We expected to be back at the vet in a day or two.

We went home, gave the Dasuquin at the recommended level, and hoped for the best. A short time later, Joe could lift himself to walk. What a surprise! He had a complete turn-around.

Joe's been on Dasuquin for a year now. He's beating the odds, has good health, and walks with us every day. He isn't as fast as he used to be, but he is still with us, and we are so grateful. Thanks for Dasuquin.

Lucy Feels Great!

Our little girl, Lucy, started favoring her right hind leg. We took her in for a checkup and our doc put her on Dasuquin. Soon she was no longer favoring that leg. Lucy seems to be back to her usual self. Now all she needs is a maintenance level just like all of us who are getting older.

Riley is Enjoying Her “Golden” Years

 

My 11 yr old Golden Retriever Riley tore her ACL, and had major surgery. After the surgery, she struggled with walking and exercise. The Dasuquin has made a world of difference in my old gal. She now is back to playing frisbee, and enjoying her "Golden" years. Thank you so much for a wonderful product!

Thanks for sharing your story. It’s wonderful to hear about a pet’s personal response to our products.

Cosequin® joint health supplements for dogs and cats contain glucosamine +/- (depending on the Cosequin formula) chondroitin sulfate, ingredients that have been shown in cell culture research to support production of cartilage matrix components. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have also been shown to inhibit the breakdown of cartilage. While individual results with Cosequin may vary, a study in dogs concluded that administration of original Cosequin DS had a protective effect on the joint.

Dasuquin® joint health supplement contains avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), glucosamine, and chondroitin sulfate. While individual results with Dasuquin may vary, the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate plus ASU has been shown to work better in cell studies than just glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate together at inhibiting expression or production of mediators involved in cartilage breakdown.
