Cosequin DS

Cosequin DS

Cosequin is a joint health supplement for dogs that feeds and helps to support the cartilage in their joints, helping them maintain normal movement.

Cosequin is available to purchase in the UK and Ireland from your local veterinary practice. 

Cosequin is a joint health supplement for dogs that feeds and helps to support the cartilage in their joints, helping them maintain normal movement.  It supports the dog’s joints by maintaining normal architecture and feeding it key nutrients that help it stay healthy.

There are four key ingredients that make Cosequin a complete joint health supplement:

  • Glucosamine Hydrochloride
    Used to form vital components of the cartilage structure that provides a smoother surface for easier movement.
  • Chondroitin Sulphate
    A key component of cartilage that helps keep it strong and healthy.
  • Methyl Sulphonyl Methane
  • Hyaluronic Acid

How is Cosequin different?
Cosequin is the only joint supplement on the market to contain the patented combination of Glucosamine HCl (FCHG49®) and low molecular weight Chondroitin Sulphate (TRH122®), alongside Manganese Sulphate and has over 50 published articles demonstrating safety, bioavailability and efficacy1.

The low molecular weight of Chondroitin Sulphate (TRH122®) ensures it can be absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream and ultimately, into joint tissue. Studies have shown that Cosequin’s unique formulation is safe and effective in dogs, and the combination of ingredients is more effective than when the ingredients are administered separately.

Cosequin is available as 120 chewable tablets.
