Have only been giving as prescribed for 4 days so its too soon to see how they work. Maybe my 4 dogs are in the minority but they don't find the taste appealing at all. I did switch from cosequin to these based on friends and relatives experience with dasuquin
Our 10 y.o. Labrador Retriever has always been an active girl. Like most Labs, she loves to run off leash, explore woods and swim. But lately she's been hesitant to walk down stairs and often takes days to recover from physical activity, resulting in her being sad/mopey/not her normal self. Our vet recommended Dasuquin to help lubricate our old girls' arthritic legs and it's been a godsend. She has pep in her walk, is less scared to walk down the stairs, and she can run/play longer than she has in months. She's not quite a puppy again, but she is definitely enjoying life and playing like a younger version of herself.
I have a 10-year-old lab who's slowing down and my vet recommended these. Only problem is, he hates the taste! Any idea if the soft chews taste any different? Probably not, since they have identical ingredients. So, it's back to a chew he'll eat, even though this one comes highly rated.
My dog started taking Dasoquin for her joints December 2022. It is effective and has helped her with mobility. Buying from Chewy is definitely more cost effective then getting it from our vet.
My Bulldog is a very active pup and super agile, so of course he hurt his back leg and had a slight limp. He was for a week on Rimidyl and Dasuquin. I continued with Dasuquin, so we are close to 4 weeks. No more limping so far, but he has now loose stool. Will reduce slightly dosage and continue until 6th week. Feel it helps, but my pup has trouble digesting Dasuquin and maybe switch him to a different brand.
My 3 large dogs absolutely refuse to eat these. Straight, chopped up or ground to powder and hidden in their food it's a no go.
They must have a good flavor because our picky eater takes them as a treat. The only problem is I have to break them into smaller pieces. For a big dog she has a small mouth. Shes a lab/spaniel. But its easier to keep track of 2 a day instead of smaller ones and having to try and give more.
My 10yr old German Shepherd has been on these about a year now and he has so much energy and plays like hes a puppy!
It helped my 16 year old mutt, now it's helping my young pup. My pup is now 18 months old. She was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at 5 months, had a surgery to fix one side at 6 months. She takes the supplement daily and I'm not sure if it's this but she's running around with her friends like a fool. She'd rather have a different treat but if I insist she eat it she will, then she gets something more tasty.
My old dog is really being helped by the vet suggested Dasuquin. I was surprised to see a difference in just a few days. She has no problem taking the big chewable pill. I must admit I put some fun topping on the pill because I wanted her to take it easily. As a side note one of my friends used it with her slowing down 16 year old cat and the cat continued to jump and climb until her passing at 18.
