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

Dasuquin for quality of life!


We have brother & sister Lhasa Apsos who are 12 years old. A few months ago we noticed that our boy had slowed down. Our Vet recommended Dasuquin and we started him on it at the recommended level. Soon after starting Dasuquin we noticed that he started walking better and has more energy to play again! Many thanks for making your product to help our precious family members live longer & fuller lives!

Cosequin and Chloe are doing great together!


My miniature Dachshund, Chloe, is 13 years old.  I decided to try Cosequin DS soft chews. Soon I saw such a difference in her mobility and energy level, I could not believe it. She had not snuggled on the couch for almost six months, and now she is back up on my lap for couch time, she is exploring outside again, and playing with her toys. I don't want to sound too dramatic here, but Cosequin DS really did give her her life back, and gave me my baby girl back... it seems like it took 5 years off of her age! Thank you for a wonderful product that helped her to be happy and live more comfortably!

Nadia is Happy Again!

My husband and I rescue dogs and cats. In 2009, we rescued the sisters which are the 2 larger dogs in the photo attached. Our story is about Nadia, the dark brown dog in the photo. Earlier this year we noticed her not playing as much with her sister. Her temperament had changed. You could tell she was not happy. We found Dasuquin. We purchased our first bottle of the Dasuquin with MSM in May. We gave her the extra amount for the time period that was written on the bottle and then went to one a day. We also gave Daisy one even though she was not having any problems. We started noticing an improvement in a few months. Now she runs and plays just like she used to !! She is happy again and so are we and Daisy !! Thank you for this product !!

Happy Havanese!

My pet is a 6yr. old Havanese. We had noticed a change in his ability to jump, play and run. My vet recommended your products Dasuquin for his joint health and Welactin omega-3 fish oil for overall wellness. He has been receiving these products daily and the change in our dog is remarkable. He is jumping, running on our walks and chasing his toys better than he has for the past year. I am very thankful for these products and feel that my pet is better because of them.

Jumping for Joy!

I've taken Chondroitin/Glucosamine myself for many years with great results. I asked our Vet whether our newly retired 5 year old greyhound ex-racer should take a supplement. He only recommends your brand because he said your product is consistent--he said you don't know what you're getting with the OTC brands. After 3 months, she jumped right up when we called her, and has ever since then. She also loves the taste, and politely waits for it after breakfast.

I believe your product has made our beautiful, and much loved grey more comfortable, and for that, I'm grateful. Thank you for making Dasuquin!  

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.
