Dasuquin is a comprehensive joint health supplement for dogs. Dasuquin's enhanced formula features the same effective ingredients as Cosequin with the enhanced effects of ASU.
Ingredients Proven Effective
Dasuquin combines Cosequin's proven FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122 low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate with NMX1000 ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables). These ingredients work synergistically to support cartilage production and help block enzymes in joints that break down cartilage. Dasuquin is further augmented with the inclusion of ASU.
A Comprehensive Formula with ASU
Dasuquin's comprehensive formula is supported by ASU. ASU has been proven to protect cartilage and improves joint function, complimenting Dasuquin's additional ingredients.
Signs your Dog May Benefit from Dasuquin
If you've noticed your dog struggling to perform activities they once did with ease, it may be time to try Dasuquin. These signs may include: slowing down during walks, difficulty getting up, reluctance to climb the stairs or jump to elevated areas.

Directions For Use As A Supplement For Dogs
One size does not fit all dogs — Dasuquin chewable tablets are available in two formulas to meet your pet's needs.
Consult your veterinarian to determine which formula is right for your dog.
|Dog's Weight||Number of Tablets Per Day|
|Initial 4 - 6 Week Period||Suggested Maintenance Level|
|Under 10 lbs.||1/2 Tablet||1/2 Tablet|
|10 - 29 lbs.||1 Tablet||1/2 Tablet|
|30 - 59 lbs.||2 Tablets||1 Tablet|
Allow 4 - 6 weeks initially to note a response, though some dogs may respond sooner. If desired, the number of Dasuquin chewable tablets may then be reduced to a maintenance level. The maintenance level can also be used long-term in healthy dogs to help support their joints. An individual dog's needs may vary. Dogs on a maintenance level can be increased to the initial level as needed, e.g., on weekends or other times when they are more active, to provide extra support to the joints.
Store in a cool, dry area out of direct sunlight. Keep lid tightly secured to ensure freshness. Keep bottle out of the reach of children.
The combination of the trademarked FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122 low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate supports cartilage matrix production and helps block enzymes in joints that break down cartilage. These ingredients together have been shown in published studies to protect joint cartilage better than either ingredient alone. A greater than additive effect, known as a “synergistic” effect, on cartilage cells was seen using this glucosamine and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate together.
It may be a good time to ask your veterinarian about Dasuquin if you notice that your dog slows down during walks, does not get up easily, or is reluctant to climb stairs or jump into the car. Your veterinarian will examine your dog to determine if he/she could benefit from Dasuquin. If your veterinarian has already recommended Dasuquin, the sooner it is started the more opportunity your pet will have to respond. Your veterinarian may also suggest using Dasuquin as a protective measure. This can be important for maintaining an active life for many dogs, especially large breeds and working dogs of all sizes. Dasuquin may also be used to help support cartilage following joint surgery.
Dasuquin is a joint health supplement containing the powerful ingredient ASU along with the optimal amount of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate for your pet. ASU works along with glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate to support your pet’s joints. In fact, cell culture studies have shown that the combination of glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate plus ASU works better than glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate alone. Green tea extract is included for additional wellness support and benefits, making Dasuquin a comprehensive joint health formula. Try it and see the difference in your best friend.
Observe your dog closely, and notice whether your dog seems more comfortable doing those activities he seemed reluctant doing or had some trouble doing previously. Changes in your dog’s comfort level may occur gradually. Allow time for your dog to respond. It may take 4-6 weeks, though some dogs may respond sooner.
While sensitivity to avocados has been reported in a few dogs, taking Dasuquin tablets is not the same as eating whole avocados. The ASU in Dasuquin has been evaluated in a safety study in dogs, and no adverse effects were noted from administration. There are no known contraindications or known interactions between Dasuquin and any drug or supplement.
