Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cosequin® for Dogs?

Cosequin is a patented, scientifically researched nutritional supplement dispensed by thousands of veterinarians to help dogs maintain healthy joints. As dogs age, it is common for their joints to become less flexible which impacts their mobility and quality of life. You may have noticed that your dog has difficulty walking up stairs or jumping on the bed. While he used to be eager to play, now he is content to rest. Even at younger ages some dogs are subject to joint health concerns which affect flexibility and mobility. Cosequin contains TRH122®* chondroitin sulfate, FCHG49®* glucosamine and manganese ascorbate. These ingredients have been scientifically formulated to support and maintain the health of your dog's joints. Published studies have shown that the specific combination of ingredients in Cosequin works together to maintain the structure of the cartilage in your dog's joints while inhibiting the enzymes that break down cartilage. It is very important to note that the published studies on Cosequin do not apply to other brands.

When is the use of Cosequin® recommended?

Early action is always the best advice. Different breeds of dogs age at different rates. With regular check-ups your veterinarian can talk with you about your dog’s aging process. Your veterinarian may discuss weight control, selective use of medications, exercise and the administration of Cosequin. It is important to have your dog examined by your veterinarian if you notice the dog having difficulties climbing stairs, jumping into the car, going for walks or even getting up. Your veterinarian can advise you if Cosequin can help. Your veterinarian may also suggest using Cosequin as a protective measure. This can be important for maintaining an active life for many dogs, especially large breeds and working dogs of all sizes. Cosequin may also be used to help support cartilage following joint surgery.

My pet just started taking Cosequin®. What should I notice?

Observe your dog closely, and notice whether he seems more comfortable performing everyday activities such as climbing up stairs, going for walks, or even getting up. Most people will observe gradual changes in their dog’s comfort level. In a published survey of over 3,000 veterinarians, over 80% of dogs administered Cosequin improved significantly in their mobility, level of comfort, and attitude. Overall, the veterinarians rated Cosequin as good to excellent.

How long does it take Cosequin® to work?

Since Cosequin is a supplement and provides nutrients to maintain your dog’s joint health, it works more gradually than drugs. Improvement on Cosequin can range from gradual to dramatic. Following the administration schedule on the label for your dog’s weight, we recommend an initial administration period of four to six weeks. Some dogs may show a response in a shorter period of time.

Should I give Cosequin® to all of my dogs?

Research in dogs administered Cosequin has shown that if Cosequin is given prior to an injury, the animal returns to normal function much more quickly. In light of this research, Cosequin is recommended to protect cartilage in dogs that are overweight, working breeds, and large breeds, as well as the average "weekend warrior". In order to gain the protective benefits of Cosequin in healthy animals, a low level of Cosequin may be used. The level for these pets varies, but the suggested maintenance level given every other day may be adequate.

Are there any side effects?

A safety study in dogs demonstrated no adverse effects of Cosequin administration on blood work parameters, including complete blood count, biochemical, and clotting values. Some dogs may experience a mild gastrointestinal upset such as that which occurs when switching foods. If this is the case, you can try offering Cosequin with a meal.

Should I exercise my dog while he is on Cosequin®?

Exercise is important for optimal joint function as well as weight control for the overall health of your pet. Joint movement is needed to circulate fluid around the cartilage as well as to bring nutrients and to remove waste products. It has been shown that when joints are immobilized, cartilage structures break down at a rapid rate. Consult with your veterinarian, but in most cases, moderate exercise is recommended. Walking on sand or another soft surface or even swimming will help circulate needed nutrients and reduce excessive stress to the cartilage. It is important not to push your pet but to exercise at a comfortable pace.

  • The Product Works

    By on

    Just as the commercial claims, this product is great for older dogs. I have a Cairn who has a hip problem and I swear it's the Cosequin that keeps him on his feet. Some days he can even keep up running the yard with the other dogs. I must add though that my last Chewy.com order came in a smashed box with some of the food bags about to fall out. When I called to report it, I got someone who sounded like a high school student who told me he was sorry, he couldn't record it anywhere, but I could call them back for 10% off my next order (yeah, like that's going to happen).

  • He thinks they're treats

    By on

    Goody is our almost 12 year old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. A few months ago I noticed he appeared to be in some discomfort standing up. Seemed like he wanted to hang out on his bed more often. Now, Goody is already a pretty lazy dog. But this looked wrong. Started him on Cosequin. It took a couple of weeks until I noticed some improvement. He is now obviously in less pain. I just got my second bottle.

  • I think it's helped

    By on

    My 8 month old babys hips started popping when he walks. We believe it was due to a growth spurt. His joints weren't keeping up with his bone growth. A friend recommended Cosequin. He has been taking 3 pills per day for 2 weeks and the popping in his hips are almost distinct.

  • My dog loves these

    By on

    I use to buy the chewy ones and my dog didn't like them much. She would take forever to eat one. These hard ones she loves. She gets two everyday and probably thinks there a treat.

  • Even my vet loved it!

    My German shepherd is 13 years old now, and has been struggling with hip dysplasia for maybe 4 years now. It was getting to where she really struggled getting up in the mornings, and her legs shook when she stood. I've been giving this to her for 2 months now, and this is the happiest I've seen her in maybe 3 years. After maybe two weeks, she didn't struggle getting up in the morning as much, and got up a lot more often to walk around instead of laying down all day because it hurt too much to walk. Two months later, she doesn't want to come inside from her her walks, she wants to keep going!I took her to the vet for her shots, and I showed the vet this product.

  • Great product for dogs of all ages and sizes.

    By on

    I use this product for all three of my dogs. Two are about 8 years old and around 40lbs, one is about 2 years old and around 90lbs. They usually don't take vitamins or medicine well, but they all 3 take these without hesitation. My older dogs have some joint/arthritis issues, and I'm using for joint support for my 2 yr old GSD. I am extremely happy with our overall experience using this product.

  • I hate to admit it but my dog will NOT eat this

    By on

    I don't know why but my dog refuses to take his Cosequin tablets. I tried giving to him whole, crushing them and mixing with food. He will NOT eat them. It makes me sad since my vet has told me he needs them for his aging joints. I know Cosequin is very, very good for dogs, however no matter what I try he just will not eat it.
