Help your dog keep moving with Cosequin® Maximum Strength Plus MSM Chewable Tablets (180 ct.). With a combination of ingredients that support healthy cartilage and help protect joints, this is one supplement that helps your dog maintain healthy movement.
What are Cosequin Maximum Strength Plus MSM Chewable Tablets?
Cosequin for dogs contains a blend of ingredients that help maintain your dog’s connective tissues and cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride is a naturally occurring cartilage component. As your dog ages, the available supply of glucosamine dwindles. The addition of a glucosamine supplement helps your pet with their natural joint maintenance. Chondroitin sulfate is a carbohydrate that stimulates hyaluronic acid and proteoglycans synthesis, which helps keep the joints healthy. It also helps reduce inflammation for easier movement. Cosequin Maximum Strength Plus MSM Chewable Tablets also contain manganese ascorbate that reduces inflammation. The addition of MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) helps relieve pain associated with arthritis so your pet can move easier. Together, these ingredients combat the effects of arthritis in older dogs so they can move easier with less pain.
How Do You Use Cosequin DS for Dogs?
Cosequin chewable tablets are easy to give to your pet. When starting out, you’ll give your dog between 1/2 to 3 tablets each day, depending on his size. This is a 4-6 week dosing period. Whenever you notice that your pup is moving easier on a consistent basis, the dosage is adjusted to every other day. Giving the maintenance dosage to healthy dogs also helps protect their joints and cartilage. The supplement is designed for long-term use under the maintenance regimen to help protect your pet against the symptoms of arthritis. Over time, using Cosequin may help improve the cartilage in your dog’s joints so he can run and play.
