Description

Nutramax has combined over ten years of clinical use and research on their joint health supplement Cosequin with their research in advanced joint health ingredients in developing Dasuquin, a cost-effective formulation for dogs. Dasuquin combines NMX1000 ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables) and decaffeinated tea with Cosequin's FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122 low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate to provide the most comprehensive joint health management formula available for dogs. Dasuquin is a dual synergistic formula: its specific glucosamine hydrochloride and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate have demonstrated synergy in stimulating cartilage matrix production, while ASU also acts synergistically with glucosamine.

Allow 4 - 6 weeks initially to note a response, though some dogs may respond sooner. If desired, the number of tablets may then be reduced to a maintenance level. The maintenance level can also be used long-term in healthy dogs to help support their joints. An individual dog’s needs may vary.

Store in a cool, dry area out of direct sunlight. Keep lid tightly secured to ensure freshness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Dasuquin® for Dogs?

Dasuquin from Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc. is a joint health supplement for dogs that goes beyond standard glucosamine supplements. It contains NMX1000®* avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), green tea extract (EGCG), FCHG49®* glucosamine hydrochloride, and TRH122®* low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate in a chewable tablet and soft chew. It is a comprehensive joint support supplement.

What role do the glucosamine hydrochloride and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate play?

The combination of the trademarked FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122 low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate supports cartilage matrix production and helps block enzymes in joints that break down cartilage. These ingredients together have been shown in published studies to protect joint cartilage better than either ingredient alone. A greater than additive effect, known as a “synergistic” effect, on cartilage cells was seen using this glucosamine and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate together.

What is ASU, and how does it work?

ASU stands for avocado/soybean unsaponifiables, an ingredient concentrated directly from avocados and soybeans that is used for joint health. ASU has been shown to improve joint function and comfort levels. Studies using cartilage cells have shown that ASU lowers the expression or production of several compounds involved in the process of cartilage breakdown in joints. ASU complements the positive effects of the other active ingredients in Dasuquin. The glucosamine in Dasuquin is synergistic with low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate and has been shown in cartilage cell studies to be synergistic with ASU. Of note NMX1000 avocado/soybean unsaponifiables, FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122 low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate together were shown in cell studies to be better than the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate alone at inhibiting expression of several agents involved in the breakdown of cartilage. The highly absorbable green tea extract (EGCG) is rich in antioxidants, which have a positive effect on cartilage as well as on overall body defenses.

How do I know if my dog needs Dasuquin?

It may be a good time to ask your veterinarian about Dasuquin if you notice that your dog slows down during walks, does not get up easily, or is reluctant to climb stairs or jump into the car. Your veterinarian will examine your dog to determine if he/she could benefit from Dasuquin. If your veterinarian has already recommended Dasuquin, the sooner it is started the more opportunity your pet will have to respond. Your veterinarian may also suggest using Dasuquin 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. Dasuquin may also be used to help support cartilage following joint surgery.

What should I be looking for when giving my dog Dasuquin?

Observe your dog closely, and notice whether your dog seems more comfortable doing those activities he seemed reluctant doing or had some trouble doing previously. Changes in your dog’s comfort level may occur gradually. Allow time for your dog to respond. It may take 4-6 weeks, though some dogs may respond sooner.

What else can I do for my dog?

Your veterinarian may recommend exercise, which is important for optimal joint function as well as weight control and 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 deteriorate at a rapid rate. You should ask 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.

Are there any safety concerns in dogs with Dasuquin use?

While sensitivity to avocados has been reported in a few dogs, taking Dasuquin tablets is not the same as eating whole avocados. The ASU in Dasuquin has been evaluated in a safety study in dogs, and no adverse effects were noted from administration. There are no known contraindications or known interactions between Dasuquin and any drug or supplement.

    My older golden retriever has some joint issues and developed a significant limp. The vet put him on a steroid regimen for a month along with the Dasuquin. It was recommended to continue the Dasuquin after the steroids were stopped and I've seen a big improvement. No more limping and he runs like he had before. I had started getting the dog food from Chewy and then realized they sold other pet products. They are now saving me $20.00 over the vet cost for this medication, which makes having an older pet more affordable! I really appreciate that Chewy has helped to make pet ownership more affordable in general. As you know, our pets make our world a lot better!

    unfortunately I ordered the wrong version of Dasuquin for Ruby. I had received the soft chew version from my vet which Ruby enjoyed as a treat. when I decided to order from Chewy I got confused thinking what I ordered was the same as the soft chews. Well She avoids the tablet version. She even dislikes when I breakup the tablet into her food. Can you help with some credit so I can get the "soft Chew" type. ??

    My husband and I have rescued giant breed dogs for nearly 20 years and were introduced to this product when it was a prescription medication by our veterinarian for our english mastiff with joint problems. It helped her and so I started giving this supplement to every new dog we rescued. I have discovered that its true value is preventing the onset of joint pain in their later years. We currently have a great dane we rescued at age 1.5 and he is currently over 9 yrs and still going strong. Why wait until your best friend shows signs of pain? By that time, the supplement can help but they may still need prescription pain medications that are expensive and hard on the liver and kidneys.

    It isn't a miracle supplement, but does seem to work better than Cosequin DS with MSM at the moment. Since it isn't the only one being taken, hard to really judge how effective it is on its own. Hope for long term results, but after a month am pleased. Dog eats 2 a day without issue.

    My now 2 year old has knee problems and arthritis in her hips. Not a wonderful outlook for a long life, but she is one of the happiest dogs in the world. When the other glucosamine I was giving her stopped working well I decided to give this well rated one a try even though it is expensive. What a difference she is back to playing and acting like a puppy again. The recommended dosage for her is two a day. Others had mentioned stomach problems at first, so I decided to try to avoid that and give her one chewable tablet in the morning and one in the evening. Works great! Also she really didn't care for the last chewable ones I was giving her and for the last month and a half I was hiding them in My now 2 year old has knee problems and arthritis in her hips.

    Easy to administer because they're chewable or can be disguised in the dogs meal. I assume they work; "Wee" has no appearance of a previously diagnosed bad hind leg. She's been taking this product over the past year As my Vet recommended at the time. I've recommended dasuquin to others.

    after giving my 12 yr old dog straight glucosamine for 2 yrs I realized that it didn't seem to be doing much for her. this was concerning as she is one who likes to act like a puppy! after receiving suggestions on Dasaquin, and doing much research I decided to give it a whirl. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! within 3 weeks she is back to racing all over the house, jumping on beds and taking 45 minute walks. I was given your site to purchase this product and I am GLAD I did. Not only was it the cheapest I found but it was delivered the VERY NEXT DAY! Unfortunately prices on other products, that I would purchase, are not much of a difference than in the stores but I will definitely be getting Nyka's Dasaquin after giving my 12 yr old dog straight glucosamine for 2 yrs I realized that it didn't seem to be doing much for her. this was concerning as she is one who likes to act like a puppy! after receiving suggestions on Dasaquin, and doing much research I decided to give it a whirl.

    My bernese had elbow surgery at a young age. We were warned by the vet that he would always have arthritis in that joint. He used to limp after walks or playing. I haven't seen him limp since we started him on this!
