Cosequin plays an important role in maintaining optimal joint function. Healthy articular (joint) cartilage is crucial to joint utility. Cosequin helps support cartilage production and protect existing cartilage from breakdown. Cosequin is the only glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate supplement that has been shown safe, effective, and bioavailable in peer-reviewed, published, controlled, U.S. veterinary studies. Cosequin is manufactured following standards similar to those practiced by the pharmaceutical industry.
Chondroitin is often given along with glucosamine because its use has been shown to possibly increase the efficacy of the glucosamine. Glucosamine is an easily-absorbed, natural supplement that may help maintain the health and resiliency of joints and their connective tissues. It may also help to prevent cartilage degeneration in dogs suffering from arthritis. In osteoarthritis, the cushions that surrounds each joint becomes thin and stiff. Glucosamine may help supply the materials needed to rebuild the cushion.
