Cosequin Joint Health Supplement For Dogs,
Cats And Horses
Joint health is a very important part of
life for dogs, cats and horses, too. Cosequin
is a natural supplement made by Nutramax that
is intended to promote healthy joints in these
animals. Nutramax is the number 1 brand of
natural pet supplement recommended by veterinarians
today. Cosequin is not a prescription drug
so there are none of the potential side effects
that can accompany chemical based drugs.
Cosequin works by helping to hydrate joints,
encouraging the body to produce the molecules
that enable water to bond and secure water
to the cartilage. It also helps to resist
compression and alleviate stress and strain
on the bones. Just as it does in humans, healthy
cartilage helps to protect the joints when
your pet or horse is in motion. Both glucosamine
and chondroitin, the same ingredients consumed
by humans trying to promote their own joint
health in a natural way, are found in Cosequin
medicines. This means that your dog, cat or
horse will be taking the same type of supplement
that you yourself would take to promote healthy
This medicine is available in capsule format
for cats and dogs, chewable tablets for dogs
and a powder designed for consumption by horses.
There is also Cosequin DS which is double
strength and available only in capsules.
As your dog, cat or horse ages, they will
sometimes develop joint issues that can affect
the range of motion in their joints. This
can lead to decreased mobility and flexibility,
in addition to pain. With Cosequin you have
a way to help them regain lost function and
encourage them to thrive. This is an important
natural way that you can address a very common
condition that animals and humans alike can
often face. This product has been scientifically
tested and shown to prevent loss of flexibility.
