Cosequin Joint Supplement

Cosequin is a joint supplement for cats, dogs, and horses. Just like humans, animals can often respond to joint supplements and this one is often recommended by vets. You can find this supplement in one of two forms – chewable tablets or sprinkle capsules. Either way, it is very effective at promoting normal joint function, especially in cats, dogs, and horses. 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).

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 rate for 4 to 6 weeks initially, then usually at a half rate for long-term maintenance if still required. No side effects are expected and it is a safe product to use for long periods.

Cosequin and fexidine plus

  • From: Essex, United Kingdom

can i also give my dog flexidin plus with cosequin

It is safe to combine these two treatments. They are essentially very similar anyway, so it is a bit like doubling the dose of one of them. This might indeed be good, because there is no scientific proof of the best dose to use and given how they seem to work, higher doses might well be more beneficial.

Personally I am sure it will be safe to do as you suggest, I am not sure if you will get any significant benefit from doing so, but you might!

Trocoxil and cosequin

28th Mar 2014
Anita Northern Ireland

My 6yr old rottie is on trocoxil, can she also take this supplement. Has had problems since birth. Joints now beginning to swell.

John Cousins

Cosequin is one of a group of joint supplements which are all essentially very similar. They appear to provide a mild to moderate help to arthritic dogs. They are also very safe and can indeed be combined with Trocoxil or other similar drugs. Many dogs are on a combination like this in fact. I think Cosequin should be a help to your dog and is worth giving.

Cosequin tabllets for my dog

18th Jan 2014
VioVet Visitor

my dog is 9 years old and she is on metacam from the vets . can she take cosequin as well as a supplement . or is the metacam the only one she needs to take .

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Metacam is more powerful than Cosequin and will probably provide the most help. Cosequin works in a completely different way and can add to the effect in a very safe and natural way. Many people do combine the two medications together and ideally this is what we would certainly recommend.

Dosage, how often, ie costing

Ann Kibble

I'd like to cost this supplement for a young Gypsy Cob, weight about 450 k, newly diagnosed with early hock spavin.

John Cousins

The dose rate for a 450kg animal is 3 level scoops twice a day for the initial loading period of 4-6weeks. The dose is then reduced to 1-2 level scoops every day after that. Each 700g tub contains approximately 120 level scoops. You will use almost 2 tubs for the loading period and a tub then will last for about 17 weeks at the low dose rate after that.
