We were considering hip replacement surgery 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.

Helped joint stiffness but caused vomiting… 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.
