Joint Health Equine

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.

Cosequin Protects Your Investment!

At my vet's suggestion I started giving my 27 year old Quarter horse mare Cosequin when she entered her senior years. She's still strong and sound. Thank you for helping to keep my “once in a lifetime” horse sound.

Our 20-Year-Old Appendix Quarter Horse is Still Going Strong


I have owned a wonderful 20-year-old Appendix Quarter Horse for 12 years. For the past 8 years, he has been on Cosequin® Equine Powder. He has been able to continue jumping and eventing the last few years, and my daughter is going to ride dressage with him this year. Thanks, Cosequin, for keeping him going at his full potential.

Cosequin® Optimized with MSM to the Rescue


After 1 month of just the maintenance level of Cosequin MSM my 20+ polocrosse/roping horse is much more comfortable during shoeing and riding. The comfort level in his rear fetlocks is greatly improved with just one administration every morning. Plus even my picky eater likes the flavor.

Keep on Riding with Cosequin® and Cosamin®


Being a horse owner for almost 50 years, I know the benefit of Cosequin for my horses. My horses become family and I keep them for life, some well into their thirties. This past winter my 23-year old Arabian mare, Pashalita, came down with a swollen ankle and the vet found cartilage breakdown and less comfort in her left ankle and knee. He said to put her on Cosequin, which I did. She is maintaining well on a daily administration.

A few years back when discomfort started in my joints, my doctor first gave me a prescription anti-inflammatory but I was unable to continue with it. I then used over-the-counter medications which I needed to take all day to stay on my feet without pain. So I decided it was time for me to try Cosamin DS. Not surprisingly, I find that all I really need now is my daily maintenance dose of Cosamin. I don't hesitate to recommend Cosequin/Cosamin to anyone who wants joint health support: man, horse, dog or cat! So thanks to Nutramax, we two seniors are both able to take in a lot more rides before that final sunset.

Thanks for sharing your story. It’s wonderful to hear about a horse’s personal response to our products.

All Cosequin® Equine joint health supplements contain glucosamine and 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 may vary, research noted positive effects on several parameters, including horses’ stride length in one study, with administration of original Cosequin Equine Powder. Cosequin ASU and Cosequin ASU Plus also contain the ingredient avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU). The combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate plus ASU has been shown to work better in cell studies than the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate alone at inhibiting expression or production of mediators involved in cartilage breakdown.
