I used to use it - now use Flexadin. Same company and I thought Flexadin was the superseding product. Get it from my vet - it's expensive. Rickie (whippet) had partial carpal fusion surgery in 2004 and I've had him on it since due to the increased risk of arthritis. He's 9 1/2 and is going great, whether due to the supplements or not is impossible to know.

I use Cosequin for Tipper, and have used it on my three senior girls to great benefit. I buy online from http://www.kvvet.com Might be cheaper elsewhere, haven't shopped around much. :dunno

Yeah, the supplier I get my Cosequin told me that Flexadin was the updated product and had it on offer so I bought a tub. My dogs didn't want to eat it so I ended up grinding it up in a pestle and mortar ... and during the same period, Jack was throwing up occasionally so I went back to Cosequin DS. He can't take Plaque-Off without throwing up, either. :rolleyes:

I was using it for Sugar, and got it from HealthyPets or EntirelyPets, they usually have great sales. I switched to Dasuquin, made by the same company. It is supposed to be better, but I forget why :rolleyes: Unfortuneately, it only comes from the vet, so it is more expensive. Haven't decided what to do when this bottle starts to run out...

I have used it for 4 years (I think) with great results. I use the sprinkle capsules. Also, I've found it's much, much cheaper to have the vet order a year's worth at once instead of the smaller bottles.

I've been buying it online without prescription for years also (I've never bought any prescriptions online). I've never seen it in a store though, only in vet offices. :dunno

My understanding is that you may now be finding it in stores... or may be soon.

Cosequine is glucose supplement, for joint health.

How does it compare to pure glucosomine? Should I be using this with the glucosomine or instead of?
