Glucosamine hydrochloride acts as a building block of cartilage by supplying a key nutrient that keeps cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly.
| Chondroitin & Manganese |
Chondroitin sulfate blocks the enzymes that break down cartilage. Manganese ascorbate is added to help optimize the production of cartilage components.
| Ingredients |
Glucosamine hydrochloride (derived from shellfish), sodium chondroitin sulfate (derived from bovine cartilage), gelatin, manganese ascorbate, mixed glycosaminoglycans, water, magnesium stearate, sodium lauryl sulfate, FD & C Blue #1, and FD & C yellow #5
The recommended initial administration period is four to six weeks; however, some dogs may respond in a shorter period of time. The number of Cosequin DS capsules may then be reduced to the maintenance level. The capsules can be pulled apart and the contents sprinkled on the pet's food. Wet or moit food is preferred to ensure that the pet gets the entire amount.
