We were considering hip replacement surgery Feb 08, 2006
February 8, 2006: We were considering hip replacement surgery for our 90 lb lab who was diagnosed with hip dysplaysia. Our vet recommended we try Cosequin DS first. We had tried similar products with no improvement and didn't expect this to work either. We were wrong. There was a marked difference in our lab's activity level within the first two weeks. Currently, he plays runs, and jumps with no pain. This product worked wonders for our dog.
UPDATE June 18, 2007: Cosequin did work wonders for our lab, but he also has Degenerative Myelopathy which was missed due to the hip dysplasia. We had never heard of this disease and didn't know the signs or symptoms to watch for. Please, if your dog is on a joint therapy product, search for Degenerative Myelopathy on the internet and familiarize yourself with the symptoms. As the disease progresses without treatment, your dog's chance for recovery and/or stabilization become less and less. The University of Florida has a lot of information on their website regarding this disease and a video depicting dogs in various stages of this disease.

Helped joint stiffness but caused vomiting... Feb 05, 2011
I gave this product to my 7 year old retriever for about 17 days but had to stop because it made her vomit. It did seem to help her joint stiffness, and she ate the tablets readily (which I mixed with her food). However, after a few days, she began to vomit several times a day within an hour or two of eating. My vet suggested I stop the cosequin to see if that would stop the vomiting--it did. I guess I'll look for another product that contains glucosamine/chondroitin and see if my dog can tolerate that.

Woof Woof!! Jul 03, 2006
Have had our two 60 and 70 lb dogs on this now for about 6 months, marked improvment in our older dog. his left rear leg shaking has improved a great deal, much more like his old self. running and playing with the younder one. (and us) I recommend. as the other review says, does not hurt. and we think helps.

Good Medicine for Dogs Aug 19, 2005
I have a rottweiler who broke both of her knee ligaments. She had surgery on both knees and I thought she would never be the same again. However thanks to the surgery and to Cosequin, she walks, jumps, and runs perfectly. She has to take this medication for life but its worth it. Each time she goes for re-evaluation, the vet always finds her joints in great conditions.

Truly a wonder! Jul 14, 2006
By Fran Rich
Kyra, our Siberian Husky, came to us as a stray and limping very badly. Thinking she had been maybe hit by a car before we rescued her, we took her to the vet for x-rays and discovered severe hip dysplasia - one joint was barely in its socket. We consulted with a specialty vet hospital about hip replacement, and then put off the decision. In the meantime, for the last 1 1/2 years, we've been giving her Cosequin. It was only a few months before the limp was not only completely gone, but she was tearing around the house playing chase with our Golden Retriever. We had to put rugs down on our bare floors to help prevent her slipping and sliding, but she does it anyway, and it never slows her down. At the lake, she out-swims Jake and she just never tires out. (Jake doesn't have joint problems but he gets Cosequin too!) I suppose as Kyra gets older we will have to again consider the hip replacement, but I feel that is years away now. And by the way, I take the people version of this same brand!
