As your pet gets older, he or she may begin to suffer from arthritis or other joint abnormalities. Cosequin Regular is a nutritional supplement designed to maintain and rebuild cartilage and joint fluid. This helps with your pet's optimal joint function and utility. Glucosamine and chondroitin are both found in healthy cartilage, and manganese helps formation of new cartilage. The appropriate dose of Cosequin Regular is determined by the weight of your pet cats and smaller dogs can take a half to a whole capsule, while two capsules will be needed for larger animals. The initial administration period lasts for six weeks, as improvement can be either dramatic or gradual. Functional joint mobility and flexibility can be an important aspect of your pet's quality of life. Cosequin Regular helps ameliorate any deterioration that may occur, keeping your pet active and ready for play.
