A few weeks ago we told you Sophie was starting a 30 Day Nutramax Cosequin Challenge with our friends at Chewy.
Well, here we are for our mid-way check in... and I'm pleased to report that Sophie is doing well and loves her Nutramax Cosequin DS plus MSM Soft Chews!
Sophie has been taking Cosequin daily and has no idea that it's really "medicine." She seems to know the Cosequin bag is her special bag of treats and actually seems to flaunt it to her brother and sister as if to say "these are mine... all mine... ha ha ha."
As soon as I grab the bag, she gets super excited, jumping up and down, waiting for her chew. I really need to get a video clip of her "Cosequin Dance," as it is quite the sight to see. And no, she does not dance like this for just any 'ole treat. Sure, she gets big eyes and excited for regular treats, but the dance is something special. Perhaps it's her way of singing "na-na na-na na-na" like a little kid in a school yard? Or maybe it's Sophie's special way of showing me the Cosequin is working? Knowing her, my money is on the singing...
Sophie's "special treats" play an important role in maintaining optimal joint function, and at 9 years old it seemed like a perfect time to get her started. Cosequin helps support cartilage production and protect existing cartilage from breakdown - important issues to watch for in senior dogs.
Did You Know?
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.
I love the fact that Cosequin DS plus MSM Soft Chews provide a perfect combination of ingredients to keep my dog healthy. Instead of having to give 3 or 4 separate pills, Cosequin packs them all into one bite sized morsel.
Each Soft Chew contains:
- 600 mg Glucosamine Hydrochloride
- 400 mg MSM
- 300 mg Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate
I also love the fact that Cosequin soft chews are so easy and convenient to give to Sophie - and that she likes them! My old girl is the only dog I've met who will spit out those heartworm preventative "tasty" chews. If we're not careful, she'll even separate her new heartworm medicine from the peanut butter we pack it in.... gobbling up all the tasty peanut butter and spitting out the tablet. But the Cosequin soft chews are gone before you can say "taste it!"
Sophie clearly is loving this 30 day challenge and I can't thank our friends at Chewy enough for putting us on it! It was the extra push I needed as a Dog Mom to get my senior girl started on a joint supplement!
We'll check back for our final report in another couple of weeks, but in the meantime you can order Cosequin soft chews and other products at Chewy. They carry several options for both dogs and cats. Remember, 1-2 day shipping is always free on orders of $49 or more!
