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.

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.

Stella Loves Her Cosequin® Soft Chews and Welactin®

 

My 1 year old Boxer, Stella, recently received a care package of Nutramax goodies. She KNEW the box had come for her (my excitement added to it, of course), and sat patiently as I opened it up. As soon as she could, she reached her head in, grabbed her new bag of Cosequin soft chews, and ran to her bed to eat them! She LOVES her soft chews, and I am just happy to keep her joints healthy. [Stella also received a new bottle of Welactin, which she loves to have squirted on her kibble, or just in her bowl! I always get compliments on how great she looks and how silky her coat is!]

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.
