I really like this product and the dogs really like the flavor of this powder.

Who ever knows if this stuff really works or not! Without lab tests is all in our perception....I use it for my "Aussie" for her injured shoulder after being stomped by a horse. I can't tell anything different in a year and half use...but the Vet continues to say it will benefit her in the long run...that's all I need to continue with what ever she needs. I buy the Cosequin powder for horses as it is far cheaper than their product for dogs...exact same stuff, give her a 1/4 teaspoon twice a day.
"Reddy" never moved so well!!! by Nancy U from Southern California10/24/2011
"Reddy" was not wanting to trot in the arena and walking uphill in my driveway was definitely not for him until supplementing the little mini horse with just a teaspoon daily has him galloping and jumping for joy now!!!
