I have two pug-mix dogs with sensitive tummies and old achy joints. They love the taste of these, and they are easy to cut in half or break/crumble into pieces if needed to help dogs that have a harder time chewing. The dosing is 1 chew per day per dog given my dogs' weights, but 1 full chew at a time upset their tummy. So I started with quarter chew 4x a day and eventually was able to move to 1 full chew 1x a day. Although most days I cut it in half and do half with breakfast and half with dinner. They aren't super cheap but they do work well and my older dogs (will both be 14 in January 2024) move better and are more comfortable when taking these supplements.
I was disappointed that the vitamins were hard. Never had that happen before as they are usually soft enough to break up in Willie's food. I put them in a container I always use and should have checked the expiration date. If it happens again, I'll send it back. I like the Dasuquin and it is good for Willie but I want it fresh or I won't order it again. Thanks, Diane
Started all three of my dogs on this per my vets recommendation. They would eat it, but it wasn't their favorite thing to eat. After about 2 weeks, I noticed one of my dogs was losing his hair. Literally clumps of hair was coming out. My smaller dogs got sick and was off her food and water for two days. I stopped giving all my dogs the chews immediately. The hair stopped falling out after about 3 weeks and my sick little one immediately started feeling better. I threw all the meds in the garbage, about $200 worth. Ugh. Would not recommend it.
I believe these help my dog. I can't say for certain that I saw any noticeable difference putting her on them. But I also put her on them as a preventative more than anything else. She eats them like a treat. They were recommended by my vet and I believe they help her as she ages and becomes less active at 12 years old.
Our vet recommended we start our dog on this early since he has irregular shaped front paw (4th toe is shorter/ not supportive of his limb). He's been on Dasaquin 8 years essentially now and we switched to the MSM one when he started showing signs of pain at 6 years old from his hip dysplasia/ luxating patella. I would say this has NEVER caused GI issues, all all so pet parents don't be worried about that. Both my pugs tolerate very well (one is much younger but we also started him on it early as well since pugs notorisously have joint problems too).
