How does COSEQUIN Powder ® act?
The Chondroitin Sulfate is an essential component of the cartilage matrix, and is primarily responsible for a proper hydration. It is essential for maintaining the elasticity and flexibility of the joint, minimizing its degradation. Glucosamine increases the synthesis of matrix components by the chondrocytes. The synergistic action of Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine doubles the power of this chondroprotective drug. Manganese Sulfate is an essential cofactor in the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans by the body.
Colts in growth period to reinforce the articular cartilage and the normal growth of the animal.
Horses with high-degree joint wear, RAIDs, race horses, jumper horses or bullfighting on horseback (rejoneo).
Horses with joint wear of arthritis/poliarthritis, particularly elderly animals, as the degenerative processes of the cartilage increases while the natural capacity for regeneration decreases with age.
It is also advisable in case of joint immobilisation and posttraumatic alterations, such as fractured ligaments or injuries, in order to ensure the complete recovery of the articular function.
Instructions for use
COSEQUIN ® Powder may be directly administered with food. You can also mix COSEQUIN ® Powder with a small amount of water or molasses and administer it with a syringe.
The initial administration period is 4 to 6 weeks. During this period, the dose may be increased but not reduced. If after 4 weeks the response is low, prolong the period of initial administration with 2 or more weeks.
In the case of elderly horses or horses with chronic osteoarthritis, tapering the dose during the transition period will help you to find the maintenance dose for the individual horse. Observe the movements and attitude of the animal to make sure that he keeps responding properly during the periods of dose transition.
