I use the human version personally, Cosequin DS (works well for me). I also give it to my dogs. I think the only difference is the MSM that is in Dasequin, but I don't think it's in Cosequin. I buy the Cosequin at Costco. It's made by the same company. Dasequin is the only FDA approved joint supplement for dogs.

We use Dasuquin for a youngster with elbow issues, and it makes a big difference.

We started using it with my dog that runs sideways, he seems to be doing real well with it, we have been using for 4 weeks now and I can see real improvement in how he runs. I have an older dog that we just started on it and we hope to see the same improvement with her.

Do you buy it from your vet or online?

I called my vet I can get 150's for 77 I found them in a pet supply store for 63 but almost 10 to ship them I will buy from my vet for now so I can get him started than shop around for best price. Did you give 2 a day for the first month than one a day ? Any side effects?

I think its 2 a day for 4 weeks, then 1 a day. At first my dog would not eat them so we sliced em up into his food, the large dog, soft chewable type. Now he loves them, so i guess he's addicited now! :)

I've been using it for about a year and his been doing great. His left knee is a little worn. My vet charges $55.

Initial 4-6 weeks is 2 per day. After that, 1 per day.

Great avatar pic, Joe. I hope that's mud!


I have many patients swear by gluc/chond for their personal use. Not just simple endorsements, but quantifiable differences like being able to climb stairs or carry garbage cans to the road, when they couldn't before. Totally unscientific, but quite a nice cross-over, reproducible, informal study! Most of all, they certainly don't seem to hurt anything, so there's no harm in trying. except to wallet.

My 13 year old has been on them for 3 years. He has a bad shoulder and I think the Dasuquin and Adequan have helped. I also buy mine from my vet.
