Cosquin DS Chewable Tabs
March 14, 2016
This product was recommended for our American Bulldog when she was a puppy. She's 10 years old now and has no problem with mobility. She gets 2 each day and we'll continue to do so.

Several years ago, our pom female was diagnosed with knee cap displacement.
Our vet graded her and then put her on
Cosequin. 1/2 tab daily. We have 2
poms so they both get a dose. At her
last annual exam, our Vet said she has
not changed in her grading which means
she has maintained and not gotten worse.
You can't even tell she has a displacement.
I keep Cosequin on hand and like to buy
from Entirely Pets. I shop for price since
we use it often and the name of Entirely
Pets comes up often. A familiar name and
a familiar service. Thanks folks.

Watching and hoping for improvement
July 29, 2015
We have had our Boarder Collie/Lab on Cosequin DS chewables for almost 3 weeks.
She is taking 3 a day, but we are still watching for a difference. She had ACL repair in Jan. so
I'm guessing it will take 2-3 months to see improvement. We are hopeful. Will keep y'all posted. Will not recommend until we know one way or another.

I adopted a 10 year old pug a little over a year ago and she had stiffness and pain in her hips. I've had her on Cosequin DS since adopted and it has helped her so much. She runs around like she no longer hurts.
Helps sore dog joints

I have used cosequin for over 10 years for my lab. She has had joint problems since she was a puppy and now even at age 13, she can still run around and enjoy life.

My 10 1/2 year old Portuguese Water Dog loves these chewable tablets. He eats them as though they are treats! HIs movement in general as well as his performance on the agility field has improved since he began taking Cosequin.

Cosequin works well for our almost 15 year old pet.

My dog loves it
August 19, 2014
My trusted vet recommended this brand to me. I had tried other brands and liquid forms but it was too expensive and messy and my dog wouldn't eat his food. I just break up a tablet of Cosequin which is very easy to do and I put it on top of his food. He eats it every time. He would eat it wihout his food but it is recommended that it be taken with food. He has had no bad reactions to it and my dog has a sensitive stomach and a lot of skin allergies. It is a great product!

I give Cosequin DS to both my dogs--an 11-year old Italian Greyhound/boxer mix and an 8-9 year old Pug. The boxer has always had the energy of a much younger dog. The Pug has nerve problems in his back legs that slow him down and occasionally affect his bowl movements. We have been giving him Cosequin DS for a month or so, and he is much more active and continent. Our vet highly approves and agrees that this pill does indeed work..

Cosequin DS
July 24, 2014
We have a large 132 yr. old Corgi who was having a lot of problems going up the 4 stairs to our front door. By giving her 1 pill a day she is now going up and down on her own. Also she likes the flavor and will take the pill from our hand or in her food. It is working and 1/4 the price we were paring for the pills from her vet. thank you!!!

I haven't had my older female on cosequin long but so far so good. I was hoping she would take them like treats because they are so big but that is not the case.

Cosequin for my Daschund
March 10, 2014
My 14 yr. old mini-daschund has hip displaysia. She would limp on one or the other back legs every other month or so. I started giving her cosequin ds, (about a year ago) based on my vets suggestion and cut out the bread treats (I give her carrots and pumpkin) she is so much better. I have really noticed a difference with the weight loss and the cosequin ds.

Using it for years
March 3, 2014
This product was recommended by a friend when I told them about my older dog's (about 12yrs old at the time) issues with pain in her back legs and difficulty getting up. It made a remarkable improvement on her mobility shortly after starting her on Cosequin DS. She's now 16+ and even though she is showing signs of age, she is still able to walk, however with increasing difficulty. I don't think she'd be around today without it .

Great Product

When we got Jenny, an 8 year old Sheltie, from the rescue she had a limp. We'd had luck using Cosequin before with our dog Buddy and started her on it right away. Within a month or two the limp was gone and she was moving much better. It's a few years later and she's still doing great. She runs and jumps and plays like a much younger dog. We highly recommend Cosequin.

We have been giving Cosequin to our 11-year old dog for five years. She doesn't run much any more, but she no longer limps, either.

Cosequin DS
September 4, 2013
My dogs have been on Cosequin DS since they were 10 years old and started to limp and were having trouble in getting started. I believe the Cosequin DS helped them move better.

playing again
August 13, 2013
I went to the vet with pain in my back which kept me from jumping into my mom's lap and even into the car for going on hikes. But thanks to delicious salmon oil and the Cosequin DS my mom gives me I am again full of playfulness.

Cosequin was recommended by our vet several years ago and our 12 year old lab has been taking it daily ever since. It sure helps to keep him on the move.
