Cosequin DS (double strength) is recommended for larger dogs (over 25 lbs)
Cosequin plays an important role in maintaining optimal joint function. Healthy articular (joint) cartilage is crucial to joint utility. Cosequin helps support cartilage production and protect existing cartilage from breakdown. Cosequin is the only glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate supplement that has been shown safe, effective, and bioavailable in peer-reviewed, published, controlled, U.S. veterinary studies. Cosequin is manufactured following standards similar to those practiced by the pharmaceutical industry.
Cosequin contains TRH122* chondroitin sulfate and FCHG49* glucosamine. These ingredients have been scientifically formulated to support and maintain the health of your dogs joints. Published studies have shown that the specific combination of ingredients in Cosequin works together to maintain the structure of the cartilage in your dogs joints while inhibiting the enzymes that break down cartilage. It is very important to note that the published studies on Cosequin do not apply to other brands.

- Really seem to help Review by Patty
I give these to my dog ever since her surgery on her leg and they really seem to help. She takes them right out of my hand and would recommend them to anyone especially if your dog has had surgery on any of their joints or is a large breed and older. (Posted on 5/16/13)

- German Shepherd Feels Much Better Review by SweetPea
We have been using Cosequin DS plus MSM for about a year and a half for our 9 year old German Shepherd. She has a marked improvement in her ability to move about on a daily basis. She was diagnosed with severe arthritis in her hips and this has given her much relief. A bit pricey but worth it. (Posted on 6/13/12)
