Either way, it is very effective for treating arthritic joints where cats, dogs, and horses are concerned. The product contains a unique mix of cartilage supporting compounds. Cosequin contains Glucosamine, a key supplement for the health of joints of older cats, dogs, horses, (and also human beings). It is one of the most effective supplements for developing better joint support as well as relieving the pain of arthritis and other joint ailments.
Cosequin is not a drug, it is a scientifically prepared food supplement designed to improve the nutrition to joint cartilage and also the bones, ligaments, tendons and lubricating synovial fluid. It is given at full dose for 4 to 6 weeks initially, then usually at a half dose for long-term maintenance if still required. No side effects are expected and it is a safe product to use for long periods.
