We have an 8 year old English bulldog who started exhibiting signs of some arthritis and age. Favoring his back leg, stiff when he would get up from laying down, wouldn't jump on the couch and wouldn't play with our 2 year old Aussie. We started giving him these chews and while it took a few weeks (as stated on the package), he was back to his old self!! Running in the yard (short sprints), playing with the Aussie, he's no longer stiff and just seems more youthful than he was before this supplement.
I tried to dip them in Peanut butter and the first couple days he finically ate them. About the 3rd day, he turned his nose in the air and walked away. I tried putting it in his food and he ate around it. Now I’m stuck with a big bag. I’ll try to give them to my neighbors dog to see if she’ll eat them.
My dog turns 8 this month and has begun having problems with his knees. Our vet recommended we try Cosequin, but cautioned it would take a while to build up in his system and help. We've just begun, but so far I'm impressed. Rocket thinks they're tasty treats and takes them with no argument. I think they're going to really help.
We got these for our golden retriever now approaching seniority. We noticed he was stiff when getting up and seemed to be slowing down. We bought these Cosequin treats and not only does he love them, he feels young again! After have 1 a day for 2 weeks, he is far more frisky than he has been in years. It's very clear to us that he feels better and these chews really did the trick. WORTH THE PRICE, YOUR OL' DOG WILL FEEL LIKE A PUP AGAIN!
I have a 7 year old Olde English Bulldogge who I thought could benefit from these for the Glucosamine, MSM and Omega-3's for his joints but unfortunately I couldn't even get my dog to try not even one of these soft chews. He would sniff them in disgust and walk away. I would even leave them in his food bowl and he would eat around them. The only other food my dog has turned down in his 7 years is celery, so I know it's not him being picky.
I love Cosequin for my senior dogs. The older is a Chihuahua mix who is almost 16 years old and was having mobility issues. After a very short time, I could see how Cosequin was helping him and putting him a little pep in his step. Last Fall I rescued a 7-year-old Shih Tzu. She gets Cosequin, too.
I bought this product for my eight year old German Shepard Dog. She is starting to get up a little slower and I want to do everything I can to keep her senior years as pain free as possible. She likes the taste of them (and she is a very picky eater). We just started them so I can not tell how much they are helping her.
I have a 9 year old mini Aussie/Heeler that was walking slower & having a hard time getting up the steps to bed. I started Cosequin & she has greatly improved. She walks better, actually runs outside & climbs the stairs herself again.!!
My dogs absolutely love these soft chews. They are easy for them to chew and they are both walking so much better. My girls are old but I want them to be comfortable and these soft chews help them.
My Australian Kelpie is approximately 14-16 years old (I adopted her, she's not my biological dog, so I'm unsure of her actual age lol) and was beginning to show some weakness in her hips. I free-feed her with other dogs (she prefers to eat this way), so adding a supplement to her food wasn't a great option. I really needed it in a treat form. She is picky when it comes to treats, but she does like these. The first dose did upset her stomach, so I gave her some Pepcid and it took care of that quickly. She's been on the loading dose of Cosequin for about 2 weeks and I have noticed a small improvement in her movement. I am still giving Pepcid with every dose and plan to soon begin weaning her off the Pepcid slowly. I chose Cosequin because of the good reviews and my past positive experience using it for my horses. I tend to avoid brand new best-thing-ever products and prefer using things that have been around long enough to show an impressive track record of efficacy, like Cosequin. And the cost of this supplement is really quite economical. This bag will last my 30lb dog a very long time.
