Joint Health Dogs & Cats

Helping to Save a Life!!


Nearly 6 years ago, a female Labrador retriever was brought into the veterinary hospital where I am employed. The former owners brought her in to be put to sleep because she could not get up... she weighed 152 lbs. The doctors convinced the owners to allow me to keep her. I began to measure her food and put her immediately on Dasuquin and Welactin. It took about 9 months, but she lost 82 lbs. She responded to the joint supplements very well. I thought if she lived to be 10, it would be great, and now she is not far from her 12th birthday!!!!! Using the Dasuquin and Welactin helped to keep her active for more than 5 years!!!
I know the joint supplements played a huge role in her still being around. She is one of the happiest dogs I have ever met, too. I thank Nutramax for their excellent products. I also use Cosequin on a large pony and a retired racehorse I have. All the animals that are getting any of your products are doing very well. Now, I have begun to put all the dogs and horses on it by the time they are 1 or 2 years old to help protect their joints.

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.


Grateful for Cosequin


I wanted to write to tell you your product is amazing and really works!! We have a Labrador who around the age of 8 years started to slow down. He seemed to be very cautious to walk stairs, run, climb and swim. I started Cosequin about 2 years ago and have noticed a difference. He is back to his puppy days, running, jumping and playing. He is now 10 and is back to running with me 2 times a week up to 3 miles at a time!! Thank you so much for making a product that really works! We are so grateful. 

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.

What a Difference Cosequin Advanced Has Made!


My dog is overweight. He's a big boy but very fast. I started giving him 1 tablet a day of the Cosequin Advanced joint health supplement and what a difference it’s made. He's jumping back on the couch and in our car, and it's like he's back. Thank you Cosequin.

Taffy Loves Her Cosequin

My Taffy cat, adopted from a rescue organization at 8 months old, has been on Cosequin for many years now. Taffy is now almost 15 years old. Taffy is able to run, and move fairly well as long as she has her Cosequin sprinkles on a little bit of canned cat food, daily. She enjoys it, and never gives me trouble in taking the product.

Lady is Back to Her Happy Self!

We took our 15 year old cat, Lady, to the vet. The vet recommended we try Cosequin. We are already seeing the difference. She is playing more, running and jumping without difficulty; she's also very talkative like she was when she was younger! I just am so elated to see her so happy! 

Quincy Runs on Cosequin!


I just want to thank Cosequin for all the extra years I have with my Quincy. He is a Lab and German Shepherd mix, who I started on Cosequin when he was 13, and starting to have bad hips. He is now 18, and still will run in the yard with the other dogs (slowly he's old). Thank you!!! I've started my lab on it as well, she is 12. Worth every penny!!

Cosequin Has Helped Lizzie

Our 13 year old, chocolate lab collie mix Lizzie recently started to have trouble going up the stairs and getting up after lying down for a while. We started her on Cosequin and now she gets up more easily, seems to be happier and is more playful! Thanks to the makers of Cosequin for making a great product that can help our dog still be a puppy in her senior years!

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

Success on Dasuquin for my Min Pin!


My Miniature Pinscher’s veterinarian started him on Dasuquin. Soon we noticed a difference in his stance and gait, and how much more easily he could go from lying to standing. Dasuquin has done wonders for his joints. I think he has been on it for about three or four years and he just celebrated his 15th birthday in January! This is an excellent product!

Little Maggie is Spry Again


I always wanted a pet growing up, yet with 7 kids in the house, no go... My little yellow lab love, Maggie, has now been with me for almost 15 years. Three years ago, she stopped jumping up on the couch and bed... I started her on Dasuquin. I am writing to you because I just would never have believed without seeing it for myself. She is so spry and youthful! She is in such great shape as a result of being able to go for long walks and play. Most people who meet her for the first time think that she is a 1 year old puppy with her being so little and so fun loving. I can't believe she has such a quality life at such an older age for a pup (and my first pup ever, my love). You all are more than welcome to interview her for a commercial (I am not looking for money, just to get it out there for other puppies to take it!) She is such an incredible example of how this supplement can help a pet’s quality of life!

I can send you videos of Maggie before and after if that even helps one puppy owner recognize the beautiful benefits... Kathleen

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.
