COSEQUIN DS protects dog's joints by reducing cartilage breakdown and stimulating it to produce compounds that keep it healthy.

There are three key ingredients that make Cosequin a complete joint health supplement:

  • Glucosamine Hydrochloride
    Used to form vital components of the cartilage structure that provides a smoother surface for easier movement.
  • Chondroitin Sulphate
    A key component of cartilage that helps keep it strong and blocks the enzymes responsible for cartilage breakdown.
  • Manganese Sulphate
    A compound that helps prevents harmful enzyme activity.

Cosequin is the only joint supplement on the market to contain the patented combination of Glucosamine HCl (FCHG49®) and low molecular weight Chondroitin Sulphate (TRH122®), alongside Manganese Sulphate and has over 50 published articles demonstrating safety, bioavailability and efficacy1.

The low molecular weight of Chondroitin Sulphate (TRH122®) ensures it can be absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream and ultimately, into joint tissue. Studies have shown that Cosequin’s unique formulation of Glucosamine HCl, Chondroitin Sulphate and Manganese Sulphate is safe and effective in cats and dogs, and the combination of ingredients is more effective than when the ingredients are administered separately.
