Helpful Tips:

Cosequin comes in 5 unique formulations. Each formula is specifically designed for the needs of your individual pet's overall wellness. All of the Cosequin formulas work to rebuild cartilage and reduce inflammation.

Joint support supplements are not just required for senior dogs. If you observe that your dog is having difficulty with daily activity, such as jumping onto the bed or walking up the stairs, your dog could benefit from the Cosequin DS formula.


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 tablets may then be reduced to the maintenance level. The tablets can be easily cut and given with 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.
