Running like a River!!



Mittens is movin’!


My vet recommended Dasuquin for my cat, Mittens. With 1 capsule spread over her moist food every morning, it only took a short few weeks for her to be walking and back to her old spunk again! Thank You for everything from Me and Mittens!

Moving more with Dasuquin!


My lab is now 12 and a half yrs. old. She has been on Dasuquin MSM for over a year. She is definitely more mobile and moves without a lot of effort.

Calvin craves Dasuquin!

Calvin, our Goldendoodle, was 1 year and 4 months old when we rescued him.  He is now going on 12 yrs. old in July. When he was off Dasuquin for a week, because I forgot his bottle to take over to our daughter’s house, what a difference for him and his hip, not good. My vet recommended Dasuquin with MSM. Thank you for making a wonderful product.

Playing happily again

I have an 11 year old, 37 lb. half cocker, half black lab. She's always been very active, very playful, and loved playing fetch as many times as we would throw the ball. Lately, after walking and playing she started favoring her right hip. 5 weeks ago I started her on your product and suddenly realized in the past week or so she is playing like a puppy again without paying later for all the activity. I only wish I had started her sooner instead of believing it was just the price of old age! Thank you for a product I can trust!

Kayla has her bounce back!


I am a military veteran of 22yrs. I adopted an Australian Cattle dog from a shelter in California in 2000. Kayla was then 3 and had 6 puppies with her. I found them all homes. Now at 18, the past 2 years her back legs had lost muscle tone. My vet recommended Dasuquin with MSM to help her stiffness and strengthen her cartilage. Soon I noticed her walks became more of a trot and even a run after a rabbit. I didn't know she could still run. I can hardly keep up with her anymore. I will continue to keep Kayla on Dasuquin no matter the cost for the rest of her life which I hope is at least to 20. Thank you Nutramax for giving Kayla the "bounce" back in her step.

Quality of Life for my Husky/Mastiff Mixes


Dear sir or madam,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say that I have been using your product for both of my dogs. They are both husky/mastiff mixes. Over a couple of years I have noticed that they have been doing quite well while using your product. I am very pleased with the results and the help that they get from taking Dasuquin and Cosequin, it's great. Please keep up the good work because I depend on you.

Maggie is moving!


I started giving my 8 1/2 year old Great Dane, Maggie, Dasuquin this spring. She used to take a while to get up and down, not anymore. Honestly, she plays with our 3 year old Dane like she is a pup. I am very happy with your product and will continue to use it.

Snoops is back in action!


Our Australian Shepherd/Mix, Snoops, is almost 15. He has really been slowing down. He has problems going down the stairs. His legs give out on him and with the downward momentum, he frequently falls. He has been on Dasuquin for 5 weeks. He is doing so much better. He seems to have more strength in his legs, which gives him more control on the stairs. He also likes to pounce on his stuffed pig and throw it into the air. He hasn't done that in a long time. Recently he literally ran across the room and jumped up onto the couch. We watched in amazement. He hasn't been able to get on the couch for the last 6 months. We realize that he is still 15 years old and don't know how much longer he will be with us, but at least he seems more comfortable and less lethargic. He just seems happier. Thank you for that.

Oh what a difference in Boo!

Boo is our rescue Border Collie mix. When she was just over a year old last spring, she began having hip problems to the point where she would play with her brother for 5-10 minutes and have to lay down. Upon getting up, she would pull herself up with her front legs and you could see a difference in her gait. The recommendation from our vet was weight loss and Cosequin DS with MSM. The picture attached is from last October, roughly six months later. You would never guess this is the same dog. She ran all day in the surf chasing seagulls and outplayed her brother until he was exhausted. She jumps three feet into the air to look over our wood fence at the dogs next door. The Cosequin has literally transformed Boo and I have recommended it to anyone who mentions that their dog has hip issues. Thank you!

Winston is Wonderful!

My yellow lab, Winston, turned 10 in March. He's still in great shape, but at 108 lbs, he was starting to slow down a little. After a 20 min walk, he'd take a nap, and then was not as comfortable for the next few hours. He even started sleeping downstairs so he didn't have to walk upstairs.

After seeing the Cosequin commercials, I figured we had nothing to lose. I can't believe it, but soon after starting Cosequin, he had more energy and just seemed generally happier. Now he runs around like a puppy again. I'm looking forward to many more years with my best friend!

Quality of life


My vet recommended Dasuquin for my Weimaraner for the rest of his life. He is nine. I hope he will be around many more years.  This product seems to make him feel better. He is able to get around very well. So thank you for making him feel better and comfortable

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.
