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. To provide extra support to the joints, dogs on a maintenance level can be increased to the initial level as needed, e.g., on weekends or other times when they are more active. 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.

    First let me say that our Vet wanted us to buy Dasuquin from them. Price was double at the Vet. We have a Newfie mix who just turned 10 years old. He was a wonderful walker and loved being out. In the last 5 months we noticed him limping, severe shoulder arthritis. So Vet recommended this particular supplement. He's only been taking it for 2 weeks so cant really say if its helping. Limping is still the same. According to information on label its takes about a month for it to get fully into his system. You begin with 2 tablets a day, for 4-6 weeks. Then its 1 tablet a day for maintenance. Our dog will not just take the tablet, we need to break it up into his food.

I only gave this product 4 stars because I'm not sure if it will work for our dog. Many people we know whose dogs have arthritis have seen results so paws crossed we will, too. … more

    I have been using this with my 12 year old Aussie for 9-10 months and I have seen a marked improvement in his mobility. He has been training and competing in agility since a puppy. At age 7 I started him on a senior food with glucosamine/chondroitin. At age 10 I wanted to add more and tried several products. Dasuquin was recommended by a fellow agility trainer and found it perfect for my dog. I followed the directions for initial period and maintenance and have seen a difference in his movement. He averages 46# and usually purchase the one for medium dogs, under 60 pounds, but accidentally order the one for larger dogs....I can make it work.

    Great product at a great price. Have been buying these from the vet at an inflated price. Found these at Chewy and am tickled pink. Have two aging labs that benefit greatly from these. Would highly recommend these for aging dogs and purchasing from Chewy.

  • Good product

    By on

    My guy has to take these due to prior leg issues when he was young. He's 8 years old now, and still going strong with no signs of the leg problems coming back yet. He hates to take any kind of pill - these included. Even though they say they're chewable, my guy will not take them. These larger chews are easier to cut into quarters, which I then wrap in a small piece of cheese to feed him. He's a super picky eater anyway. But we do get these down, and they seem to do the trick.

  • Same as vet

    I was happy to find chewy carried this. It is the same as the one we got from the vet. The good news (beside the fact it is delivered) it cost about $4 less than the vet. Same count of 150. We have two golden retrievers that are almost 11 yrs old, they are costing more money to keep healthy.

    Originally purchased this product through our vet for our 12 year old buddy "Max" and the price was ridiculous. I decided to check the price here and I was floored at the difference. Chewy offered a price difference that was incredible. I will be using Chewy a lot more in the future.

  • dog won't eat

    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. ??
