Helpful Tips:

Cosequin comes in 5 unique formulations. Each formula is specifically designed for the needs of your individual pet's overall wellness. Regular Strength Cosequin meets the daily needs of small dogs.


The recommended initial administration period is four to six weeks; however, some dogs may respond in a shorter period of time. 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.
Once consistent improvement has been seen, these maintenance levels may be reduced to an every other day administration. The maintenance level can also be used long-term on healthy dogs to help support their joints
