Cosequin DS
October 20, 2021
I was concerned that my dog would not eat the pill or might have stomach upset. Neither is the case. I'm able to use a little wet dog food to hide the pill in her kibble and she eats it with no problems.

I can't assess if it will help her hip mobility but I hope it will keep her agile as she ages.

Great Supplement

I've been giving these to my two Golden Retrievers for years. One of them was diagnosed with arthritis and the vet specialist recommended this supplement. Definitely there is much less stiffness and more ease of movement for the dog. Twice a day they each get one supplement. Right in the bowl with their dry food. They eat it right up, I think it's tasty to them! Very easy to use and it helps the stiffness.

Been giving Cosequin DS tablets to my dogs for 12 years. They both like the taste and eat them like a treat or with a meal. Easy to break in half. No stink.

My fur-baby has been on Cosrquin DS for about four years now. I put her on it,due to a shoulder injury from playing Frisbee. She is now 12years old and going strong. I really feel this helps with her joint pain that she may be experiences due to her age.

I have been buying my pet vitamins and supplements from Entirely Pets for more than six years. I buy Cosequin DS and Derm-Tabs extra Strength for my yellow Lab. This company has always provided prompt service and the products are always of excellent quality. I would recommend Entirely Pets to all my friends.

I did not see any difference in either my dog, age 12 or my cat, age 16 from the cosequin, so I discontinued the supplement.

Seem to help
September 8, 2015
We just started giving these to our 7 year old tripod because he is a tripod so I am not noticing anything too different for him. But we did give these to the last dog when he was older. I was not sure if they were helping until they ran out and we did not replace them right away. He seemed worse when he was not taking them so we started giving them again and he did do better.

I have a Dalmatian and she is having trouble getting up after laying for a long time.
My Vet suggested giving her Cosequin DS and nothing else.
I ordered it and started with 3 per day and after about 2 months 2 per day.
It is amazing what it did for her. It has been about three years now and she acts better and younger than she did 3 years ago.
I was so impressed, I started taking it for humans, and I can't believe what it has done for my knees. I figured if it helped an animal that much, it would probably help a human. I was right!!!",06/15/2015 11:24 (KristineM) Approved by client"

My 12 year old Wheaton has a bum leg and has a lot of pain. He has been on this now for a month, one pill twice a day. I have noticed his leg is not shaking with pain too much anymore.

Antje loves it.
March 6, 2015
Antje is a nine year old miniature wire haired dachshund. She's so close to the ground she gets achy from the cold and wet. Cosequin really helps her. I'd recommend it for dogs who need help with their joints.

I have used this product many years and many of my doggies. At one point I saw my 12 year old golden having trouble getting up, after about 2 weeks using Cosequin DS she could jump up on the couch and bed.

Very good purchase.

My Lab is 8 yrs old and is having problems with her hip and also hates taking medicine. She loves the taste of the tablets and is getting around much better now with less pain. Thank you.

I don't know what the flavor is, but my English Mastiff is very eager to get his daily dose. I'm hoping that this product is helping my dog, my vet says "probably the best joint supplement"

Best product ever
September 21, 2014
My dog was diagnosed with Degenerative Hip Disease 7 years ago at age 8. After a week of being on this product, he actually had started to run a little bit again. He has been on this product daily since his diagnosis and at 15 years old isn't doing bad.

It's a great product and I get it for half the price the vet would sell it to me for. Great product. Recommend it for anyone who has a dog with joint issues.

Used for Years

I have a 12 year old Beagle who has had torn ligaments in both legs for over 5 years. I have forgone surgery (which was recommended by two different vets) and instead I give her Cosequin and Fish Oil on a daily basis. The improvement has been very noticeable. I have recommended Cosequin to many people and will continue to do so as it has made a difference in the quality of my dog's life.

I have two German Shepherds with severe hip displasia. I have used this products on both dogs for over 5 yrs. My dogs will eat it with no problem and it helps ease their pain. I have tried two other products and the dogs hated them. Total waste. Sticking with Cosequin even if it costs a bit more.

Best product for us

I have quite a few dogs that are using joint supplements and we have tried many trying to find one brand that seems to help everyone. This is the one. I believe it is because there is a higher amount of chondroitin in this product than most others and the dogs seem to utilize the chondroitin better than glucosamine. We will be using Cosequin DS now. Dogs love 'em right in with the food and they are easy to break for smaller dogs.

Our 9 year old mixed breed has been on Cosequin DS for 3 years and her lameness improved after a few weeks... She stopped taking it for a few weeks and lameness returned...Now, it's a daily ritual that she never misses...
