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!

Beau, Our Circus Dog!


We got Beau for our Big Dog, Maxx, as sort of "the toy that played back". Beau has such enthusiasm and energy as most poodles do and the wee black fuzzy bundle of interesting weaseled his way into our hearts and home in no time at all. Beau should have been in the circus for all his acrobatics, big leaps and twirls. Maxx passed away and it's just been Beau, my husband and myself...we teasingly refer to him as Velcro Dog since he's always stuck to one of us. Beau is now 12 and about two years ago, he couldn't hop up onto the couch without assistance or many attempts. So we took him to the vet for his annual check up and told our vet about what we saw with Beau. The vet recommended Dasuquin -1/2 tablet a day considering Beau is only 17 lbs. It was only a matter of weeks before we noticed that Beau was improving and a year later - this dog is back to his puppy like self...jumping up and down where he wants. Well, he's twelve now and doesn't walk windowsills or the back of the couch anymore but he happily and easily twirls and does his poodle dances. It's nice to see. This year for Beau's annual physical - we asked for more Dasuquin. It is worth the money for the good things it does for our fuzzy friend.

Honey Has Her Spring Back!!

My dog Honey is 8 years old. My veterinarian suggested using Dasuquin. I see signs of improvement. Honey has been taking Dasuquin for one month and the spring in her step has returned. She plays fetch for a much lengthier time now.

Bouncy Boston!

My Vet recommended Dasuquin for my 6 year old female Boston Terrier. We did the 4 week loading level and now she is on the maintenance level. She is like a new dog. Will jump up on her recliner like she used to. Thanks to Dasuquin!!!

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.

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.
