Cosequin DS Double Strength Sprinkle Capsules
Cosequin Double Strength (DS) Sprinkles are a nutritional supplement for supporting joint function in dogs. It contains a unique combination of active ingredients that support the cartilage. It's advantage over many joint care supplements is the capsules come in sprinkle powder form allowing you to give Cosequin easily to your dog.
Three main ingredients in Cosequin Sprinkle support normal joint function:
- Glucosamine Hydrochloride supports the secretion of GAGs (Glycosaminoglycans) produced by cartilage cells from glucose.
- Chondroitin Sulphate binds with collagen for tensile strength and control of water content.
- Manganese Ascorbate, if deficient, greatly decreases the tensile strength of the fibres.
Cosequin Double Strength (DS) Sprinkle Capsules have been designed for large breed dogs (26-50kg).
Glucosamine hydrochloride, sodium chondrotin sulphate, gelatin, manganese sulphate, water, magnesium stearate, sodium lauryl sulphate, FD&C blue 1, and FD&C yellow 5.
Cosequin Double Strength Sprinkle Capsules can be administered by pulling apart the capsule and sprinkling the powder onto the food, preferably a wet or moist food.
Medium Dogs (10-25kg) - Loading 2 capsules daily
Do not alter the Cosequin amount more than once a month. The tablets can be fed directly to your pet or crumbled and mixed with food.
For finicky pets the tablets may also be given with their favourite treat.
The recommended initial administration period is four to six weeks; however, some dogs may respond sooner. The number of chewable tablets may then be reduced to the maintenance level.
