Cosequin is a nutritional supplement to help dogs maintain healthy joints. As dogs age, it is common for their joints to become less flexible which impacts their mobility and quality of life. You may have noticed that your dog has difficulty walking up stairs or jumping on the bed. While he used to be eager to play, now he is content to rest. Even at younger ages some dogs are subject to joint health concerns which affect flexibility and mobility.
Cosequin is an exclusive formula of three ingredients: (TRH122®) chondroitin sulfate, (FCHG49®) glucosamine hydrochloride and manganese ascorbate. These ingredients have been scientifically formulated to support and maintain the health of your dog's joints. Published clinical research have shown that the specific combination of ingredients in Cosequin works together to maintain the structure of the cartilage in your dog's joints while inhibiting the enzymes that break down cartilage.
The exclusive combination of (TRH122®) chondroitin sulfate, (FCHG49®) glucosamine hydrochloride, and manganese ascorbate in Cosequin work together to maintain the structure of your dog's joint cartilage while slowing down the enzymes that break down cartilage.
Glucosamine hydrochloride: This ingredient acts as a building block of cartilage by supplying a key nutrient that keeps cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly. The 99% pure glucosamine in Cosequin has been shown to be absorbable in dogs.
Chondroitin sulfate: This nutrient blocks the enzymes that break down cartilage. The specific chondroitin sulfate, exclusive to Cosequin, is the most pure form available on the market.
Manganese ascorbate: It is necessary to optimize the production of cartilage components.
