Cosequin® is a patented, scientifically researched nutritional supplement dispensed by thousands of veterinarians 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® contains TRH122®* chondroitin sulfate, FCHG49®* glucosamine and manganese ascorbate. These ingredients have been scientifically formulated to support and maintain the health of your dog's joints. Published studies 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. It is very important to note that the published studies on Cosequin® do not apply to other brands.
The exclusive combination of TRH122® chondroitin sulfate, FCHG49® glucosamine, and manganese ascorbate in Cosequin works together to maintain the structure of your dog's joint cartilage while slowing the enzymes that break down cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride acts as a building block of cartilage by supplying a key nutrient that keeps cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly. Chondroitin sulfate blocks the enzymes thatbreak down cartilage. Manganese ascorbate is added to help optimize the production of cartilage components. Cosequin has been used since 1992 in animals to maintain joint health. While the ingredients have been used separately, published controlled studies show the patented combination of ingredients in Cosequin is superior to using the ingredients alone.
On the label, different brands may appear to be the same, but unlike drugs, the ingredients in supplements are not equivalent. Cosequin, with its exclusive combination of high purity glucosamine, low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate and manganese ascorbate, is the only glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate supplement that has been shown safe, effective, and bioavailable in peer-reviewed, published, controlled, U.S. veterinary studies. Chondroitin sulfate is a large molecule that is difficult to absorb. Low molecular weight means the particle size of the molecule is smaller and more easily absorbed by the digestive system than other less pure forms of chondroitin sulfate. While the low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate is more expensive, it is supported by published, controlled U.S. clinical studies for efficacy, safety and absorption. Cosequin is manufactured in the United States by Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc. following manufacturing standards adopted by the pharmaceutical industry. Each batch of Cosequin is subjected to stringent quality control measures and meets label claim. However, a number of reports including a study published in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association showed that up to approximately 80% of glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate brands did not meet their own label claim.
