... if old Tasha can do it so can Chocorua


Hi, after my wife died about 2 years ago, my dogs were very depressed. The big dog is Little Hoss, 4 years old, and the little one is Chocorua Mountain, 13 years old.

At that time, Chocorua hurt her hips and was reluctant to walk. I had to carry her everywhere. Even when she had to go to the bathroom, I would have to help lift her up.

I saw the Jack Hanna ad on TV and thought if old Tasha can do it, so can Chocorua. I got the Cosequin Advanced and faithfully gave it to her for 2 years now, and I'm not stopping. After 6 months she started walking a few steps and now she can run. She is not as fast as she used to be, and I still have to lift her in and out of the car. Jack, I want to thank you, you helped my sweet baby. Sincerely, Tim

Our Golden is golden on Dasuquin!


Our Veterinarian recommended Dasuquin with MSM for our 11 year old female Golden Retriever. That was nearly 2 years ago and the results have been phenomenal. She just turned 13 and we could not be more satisfied. Even friends that we had not seen for nearly a year remarked that she seemed like a much younger dog as she prances and bounds during our twice daily walks. Thank you so very much.


My Lab is Doing Great on Dasuquin® Soft Chews!


My four-year-old lab is 128 lbs, but he's very tall and leggy, not overweight at all. His joints used to bother him after every walk or run, and sometimes he could not rise very easily. He has been taking Dasuquin soft chews for about 8 months, and now he's doing great. I am so pleased.

Fiona is Running and Playful Again!


I have a Labradoodle that was adopted from a shelter as a puppy. She has always had problems with one of her back legs, and by the time she was only 3 years old she was really having trouble standing up, going up stairs, or doing pretty much anything that put the slightest pressure on it. The vet suggested an expensive surgery that did not have a good success rate, or else amputation. As you can imagine, this was very stressful and there were no good answers. Fiona would have her good days where our hopes were up, but these were always followed by a bad run that was horrible to watch. A couple of years ago, I saw your Cosequin DS Plus at Costco and bought a bottle. To say I was skeptical was an understatement, but soon Fiona was visibly better... she felt so good she would just run around the back yard and wanted to play with her toys again. We've continued to give her the Cosequin and increase it when needed(usually because of cold weather). It has ALWAYS helped. I cannot begin to explain the relief and joy your Cosequin has brought to our family! And the cost is so reasonable. Thank you so much for your product!

Our Ten-Year-Old Lab Running Once More!


We had been giving our ten year old lab another brand of Glucosamine & Chondroitin Sulfate for a year, but she really didn't get any better. We were running low and I was at BJs and picked up a bottle of your Cosequin®DS. We've been using it for less then a month and already she's back to running and skipping around like she used to. It's an amazing change. We've been able to get back to taking her for walks, which she loves, and her overall fitness level has improved. We will use your product forever now.

Success with Dasuquin® for Abby


We used to help my 11 year old Bernese Mountain dog, Abby, up in the morning. And she would want to walk only a very short distance. We tried different glucosamine supplements which never seemed to help all that much. My vet highly recommended Dasuquin. Abby has now been on the Dasuquin for about 6 months, and she runs and plays like a puppy again. I love Dasuquin and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great joint health supplement. We have started our German Shepherd on it to help protect her joints. I can’t thank you enough for such an AMAZING product.

Mousse Loves her Dasuquin®!


I adopted my lively chocolate lab, Mousse, when she was 15 months old. She has had two knee surgeries since. The vet recommended Dasuquin, and she has been on the chewable tabs daily (she thinks they're a treat.) Today she is as active and as happy-go-lucky as before.

Our Dog Loves His Cosequin®!


Our dog is large - a Great Dane, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Boxer mix. He turned 14 years old yesterday. For the past 1½ years, he's been slowing down and has been reluctant to jump up on my bed. He hasn't been playful and seemed pretty sad, which made us sad. I started giving him Cosequin DS Plus MSM, and I have decided that it is like precious gold in a bottle! He’s wagging his tail, frisky, rough-housing, and jumping up on the bed again without help! He loves these even more than his good quality bones! “Amazed” is not adequate to describe how we feel about this outstanding product. He will never be without it as long as he lives. Typically I’m quite the critic, but I cannot say enough good things about this high quality fantastic product. It has given our dog, whom we love so very much, his life back. He asks for the Cosequin DS Plus MSM all the time! Thank you so much for making such a high quality product! We are lifetime believers now!

My Happy, Active "Berner" Dugan


My Bernese Mountain Dog, Dugan, has been taking Dasuquin with MSM now for 3 1/2 years. An orthopedic veterinarian recommended Dasuquin when he was 6 months old to help his hips. Dugan had never really been the type of dog to jump up a lot. After taking Dasuquin for about 5 weeks, it was like having a different puppy...and of course along with the good comes some bad...Dugan not only was a happy, jumping puppy, but he also started counter-surfing for goodies on the counter that he never would try to jump up at before! 


Dugan is a happy, healthy and very active "Berner" who LOVES going out for walks multiple times a day and who thoroughly enjoys visiting the dog park and the dog beach to romp around with all the other dogs. Since starting Dugan on Dasuquin with MSM, I've recommended the product to multiple friends with dogs who are aging and could benefit from joint support. They have also have success with the product. I will continue to give it to Dugan for the rest of his life, and I am thankful Dasuquin is available to help all the animals who need it. Thanks Nutramax!


Best regards, Gail & Dugan

Our Shih Tzu has her Groove Back!


I have a 15 year old Shih Tzu who could benefit from some help getting around. I contacted my vet and upon his recommendation I tried Cosequin®. She is a new dog! I just wanted to thank you for helping our baby get her groove back! Needless to say, we were willing to do whatever it took to help her...but with your product she is thriving! Thank you, thank you!! I will spread the word too! Jena

Maddy is on the Move!


I am a proud owner of a female golden retriever who unfortunately has some hip difficulties. Maddy was hesitant to jump onto the bed and the porch. I started giving her Cosequin® DS Plus MSM, and she was soon getting back up on her favorite spots again. I hope this continues for the rest of her life. I highly recommend this product! I have tried other joint supplements previously with some minor improvements, but nothing like this.

All my Pets are Happy and Healthy!


Knowing the various benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, all of my pets (both dogs and cats alike) are on Welactin, which is one of the best sources for EPA and DHA for animals. When my miniature pinscher's joints began "snapping" during agility training, we started her on Cosequin DS and now her joints are healthy (and quiet) again.  Now all of them are on Cosequin, including the cats, who often silently experience reduced joint health in their senior years.  I've also had success with Denamarin in two dogs in the past. I trust and advocate Nutramax products.


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.
