Cosequin is a patented, scientifically researched nutritional supplement dispensed by thousands of veterinarians to help dogs maintain healthy joints. As dogs age, it is common for their joints to become less flexible which impacts their mobility and quality of life. You may have noticed that your dog has difficulty walking up stairs or jumping on the bed. While he used to be eager to play, now he is content to rest. Even at younger ages some dogs are subject to joint health concerns which affect flexibility and mobility.

•  Cosequin regular strength capsules for small dogs and cats are available in 90 and 180 count sizes.
•  Cosequin chewable tablets are available in 40, 120, and 250 count sizes.
•  Cosequin Equine Powder is available in 1400, 700 and 280 gram bottles

Recommendation as a Supplement: The Initial Administration Period is 6 Weeks. Most animals should respond within this period. Improvement on Cosequin can range from gradual to dramatic. If the improvement is gradual, it may go unnoticed by the owner. It is therefore important to keep the animal at the initial amount for at least 6 weeks before deciding to discontinue the use of Cosequin. If there is gradual improvement and Cosequin is discontinued, a regression of clinical status can occur.

Initial Administration (6 weeks)
Cats and Small Dogs
Under 10 lbs. - 1/2 to 1 capsule daily
10-24 lbs: 2 capsules daily (1 in A.M./ 1 in P.M.)

Maintenance Administration (After initial 6 week period)
Cats and dogs under 10 lb. can often have their dosage reduced to 1/2 capsule daily or 1 capsule every other day. 10 to 24 lb. can often have their dosage reduced to 1 capsule daily.

Recommendation as a Supplement For Cats
Initial Period - 4 to 6 weeks
Under 10 lbs.- 1 capsule sprinkled on food daily**
Over 10 lbs. - 2 capsules sprinkled on food daily***

Once desired response is obtained, capsules may be administered every other day to maintain your cat. Number of capsules administered may be increased at any time depending on your cat's needs. If your cat eats dry food, the food may be moistened with a small amount of water so that the powder sticks. Alternatively, the contents of the capsules may be mixed with a small amount (i.e. tablespoon) of wet or moist food to ensure your cat eats the entire amount.

**This product is in a capsule to ensure an accurate amount is administered to your cat.
***Capsules may be given once or twice a day depending on your cat's feeding schedule.
Cosequin® DS is available for dogs in tasty chewable tablets.

Guaranteed Analysis. Each Capsule Contains: Cosequin For Cats
Glucosamine HCl 99+% 125 mg
Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate 95% (Low Molecular weight)
Mixed Glycosaminoglycans 5%
100 mg
Ascorbate (as Manganese Ascorbate) 8 mg

Ingredients: Glucosamine HCl, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, natural flavors, manganese ascorbate, gelatin, water, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, FD&C Red #3, FD&C Blue #1, and sodium lauryl sulfate.

Initial Administration (6 Weeks)
25-49 lb. - 2 capsules daily (1 in A.M./ 1 in P.M.)
50-100 lb. - 3 capsules daily (2 in A.M./ 1 in P.M.)
Over 100 lb. - 4 capsules daily (2 in A.M./ 2 in P.M.)

Maintenance Administration (After initial 6 week period)
Dogs 25 to 49 lb. can have their total daily dosage lowered in increments of a 1/2 capsule per month until maintenance level is reached. Dogs over 49 lb. can have their total daily dosage lowered in increments of 1 capsule per month until maintenance level is reached.

Directions: The amount can be increased at any time depending on the pet's needs. If the pet does not respond as well when the level is decreased, then return to previous level. Remain on this amount for a month, then try again to gradually reduce. Sometimes an every other day amount or lowering the amount by 1/2 capsule rather than one capsule can be successful. Some pets will maintain at a lower amount during the summer months than the winter months. Also activity level can vary the requirements. In times of high physical demand, pets may require more Cosequin.

Cosequin DS double strength can be used on patients under 25 lb., however, 1/2 capsule increments must be used. For convenience, Cosequin regular strength should be used. Regular strength can also be used for maintenance of dogs weighing 25-49 lb. that maintain below one capsule daily of double strength.

The capsules can be pulled apart and the contents sprinkled on the pet's food. Wet or moist food works best. As an alternative, pets can be pilled or the capsules administered by wrapping in a small piece of food. Cosequin is palatable to dogs, cats and birds.

Joints and Articular Cartilage: The performance and mobility of your horse is dramatically affected by how well his joints function. While physical conditioning can strengthen muscles, bones, and tendons, the tremendous forces exerted on the skeletal joints (fetlock, knee, stifle and hock) during training and competition causes wear and tear to the joint cartilage. Articular cartilage is critical to joint utility. Immersed in synovial fluid, articular cartilage provides a smooth, low friction surface between bone ends, and transmits load forces to the underlying bones.

What Can I Expect Using Cosequin? Since Cosequin provides nutrients that affect the structure and function of the joint, changes may occur gradually. You should notice changes in three to fous.r weeks in most candidates. Some horses may take five to six weeks to exhibit noticeable change

Recommendation as a Dietary Supplement: The initial administration period is 4 to 6 weeks, however recent studies using Cosequin have shown an early response, in most horses, by 2 weeks. The response usually improves if the initial amount is continued for an additional 4 weeks. If a horse shows little or no response after 30 days, extend initial amount for two more weeks.

Initial Administration: Average Horse - 3 level scoops AM & PM
Horses over 1,200 lb. - 4 level scoops AM & PM
Overly large horses (warm bloods, draft breeds) may need 4 or 5 scoops AM & PM

Transition Period: Do not lower amount until horse has begun to respond. After achieving a good response, reduce total daily amount by one level scoop each week. Gradually reducing the amount will help find an individual maintenance level. Watch the animal's movement and attitude to ensure that it is feeling comfortable through each weekly transition.

Suggested Maintenance Administration:
Average Horse - 1 level scoop AM & PM
Horses over 1,200 lb. - 2 level scoops AM & PM
Amount can be increased at any time to maintain desired comfort level. Two or three days prior to heavy workouts or competition, boost daily dosage back up to initial loading dose. Continue this level for two to three days after competition, then return to regular maintenance level.

Directions: Cosequin can be top dressed on sweet feed. Add a small amount of water or molasses to get the Cosequin to stick to dry feed. You may also administrate orally. Mix Cosequin with a small amount of water or molasses and dose orally with a syringe.
