Our 100 pound Golden Retriever has had surgeries on both knees. Now, we confront osteoarthritis. The surgeon and Teddy’s Vet recommended a switch to Dasuguin with MSN rather than Cosequin for Teddy’s joints. Our eight year old is acting like he is four! Teddy springs into the air on his hind legs to jump up on my bed.
Q: Is there an independent medical study proving the benefits of this product?
A: “When NutraMax first offered an oral glucosamine product in the early 1990’s there was considerable controversy regarding efficacy of glucosamine, efficacy of oral administration, etc. The early studies varied from neutral to positive, i.e. no advantage to measurable advantages/benefits…
Personal experience as a veterinarian has been consistently positive with numerous reports over the years from pet owners that they did not realize the magnitude of the benefit until they allowed their dogs to “go off” the supplement. The usual time lag was 2-4 weeks before they resumed use. Obviously this is not a study per se, the owners who did not resume use probably did not report back as consistently, but still the overwhelming anecdotal evidence from those who care the most (owners) has been positive for nearly thirty years.”
Researched Ingredients: Dasuquin is a multi-synergistic formula. Cell culture research has shown that Dasuquin’s specific glucosamine and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate synergistically stimulate cartilage matrix production, while ASU also acts synergistically with glucosamine and with chondroitin sulfate. ASU, obtained from avocados and soybeans, helps protect cartilage and support joint function. The combination of Glu, CS and ASU was shown to be more effective than Glu and CS alone at inhibiting expression of several agents involved in cartilage breakdown.

Dasuquin was recommended by my vet, and it works very well. I got my dog off of prescription anti-inflammatories in less than a week. Of course, this is not a miracle cure and when she overdoes it, her limp and stiffness reappear for a few days. However, they do not seem to be as pronounced nor as long lasting as they were before she started on the Dasuquin.
After she was on these for about six months, I wanted to see if the difference was real or coincidental. I decided that when I ran out, I wouldn’t buy more right away. I noticed a reappearance of her limp and increased stiffness after she was off them for a few weeks, which tells me they do make a difference.
