Nutramax has combined over ten years of clinical use and research on their joint health supplement Cosequin with their research in advanced joint health ingredients in developing Dasuquin, a cost-effective formulation for dogs. Dasuquin combines NMX1000 ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables) and decaffeinated tea with Cosequin's FCHG49 glucosamine hydrochloride and TRH122 low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate to provide a comprehensive joint health management formula for dogs. Dasuquin is a dual synergistic formula: its specific glucosamine hydrochloride and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate have demonstrated synergy in stimulating cartilage matrix production, while ASU also acts synergistically with glucosamine.
- Helps support cartilage matrix production
- Helps inhibit cartilage breakdown
- Helps support joint comfort
- Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate support joint mobility
- ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables) and EGCG (green tea extract) work in combination with Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM to deliver comprehensive joint health support
Directions for Use
|Dog's Weight||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 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. To provide extra support to the joints, 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. Store in a cool, dry area out of direct sunlight. Keep lid tightly secured to ensure freshness.
Each chewable tablet contains:
|Ingredients||Small to Medium Dogs|
|Glucosamine Hydrochloride 99%||600 mg|
|Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate||250 mg†|
|Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU) Powder||45mg‡|
|Boswellia Serrata Extract||20 mg|
|Green Tea Extract||16 mg|
† Contains up to 10% moisture.
‡ Standardized to contain a minimum of 30% of avocado/ soybean unsaponifiables.
Dasuquin combines ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables) and green tea extract (EGCG) with Glu (glucosamine) and CS (chondroitin sulfate) to deliver comprehensive joint health support to dogs of all sizes.
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.
