Cosequin® for Cats
Cosequin® is the #1 veterinarian recommended retail joint health supplement brand.▼ You and your veterinarian want the best for your pet, and Cosequin® is here to support that effort. Cosequin® is a patented, scientifically researched nutritional supplement dispensed by thousands of veterinarians to help cats maintain healthy joints. As cats age, it is common for their joints to become less flexible which impacts their mobility and quality of life. You may have noticed that your cat is less eager to jump to her favorite spot. While she used to prowl and chase “prey”, now she is content to rest. Cosequin® contains proprietary researched veterinary specifications FCHG49®* glucosamine and TRH122®* chondroitin sulfate. These ingredients have been scientifically formulated to support and maintain the health of your cat’s joints. Cartilage cell studies have shown that the specific ingredients in Cosequin® work together to maintain the structure of the cartilage while inhibiting the enzymes that break down cartilage.
