Cosequin DS Capsules

Recommendation as a Supplement for dogs:

The recommended initial period is four to six weeks; however, some dogs may respond sooner. 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 moist food is preferred to ensure that the pet gets the entire amount.
