When our dogs have something wrong with them it can be a pretty traumatic experience for us as canine owners. There are different types of illnesses that can affect our beloved pet just like there are specific ailments that humans can experience. Just as with their human counterparts dogs have different medications based on what ails them. Seeing your dog going through joint pain in particular can be especially heartbreaking because the dog’s energy level and the overall ability for the dog to get around is probably what made you fall in love in the first place. If your dog is in this particular health situation, don’t worry, there is a treatment on the market that is geared towards this exact medical concern.
Dasuquin is a drug you can buy over-the-counter (OTC) to help combat your dogs joint health issue. Even though this medicine is available OTC it is probably best to get advice from your veterinarian who can let you know specifically based on your dogs medical history if Dasuquin is the right treatment for them. Dogs enjoy Dasuquin become they come in a tasty chewable tablet that the little guys just love. The drug has a “synergistic” effect on the damaged cartilage or joint and really goes a long way to curing your dog and improving their overall condition. Think of when a human gets joint pain treatments and you see them for the first time after the treatments have taken hold. They look like a different person don’t they? These are the exact results Dasuquin can have on your dog if administered properly.
The amount of Dasuquin tablets administered daily on a daily basis is directly linked to the weight of your dog.
- Dogs 10 pounds and under require 1⁄2 tablet per day,
- 10-29 pound canines will have their dosage bumped up to 1 tablet per day, and for those of the
- 30-59 pound variety 2 daily tablets are required.
- If you have a dog bigger than 60 pounds you will need to be sure to get another version of Dasuquin which is specifically made for large dogs. Dogs over 60 pounds will require 2 tablets a day as well.
- For dogs under the 60 pound mark the version of Dasuquin you will be buying is Dasuquin for Small and Medium Dogs.
As of now there is no safety concerns associated with Dasuquin tablets. As with any drug though the more it is in circulation the more safety concerns could arise so make sure you are keeping up with any new developments regarding the tablet based drug.
Seeing your dog get old or become injured as stated before can be tough on both the dog and its owner. If joint pain is your dog’s problem then Dasuquin if taken properly can get your dog back to how you remember or at the very least alleviate the pain he or she is going through. Good luck in your appointment with your veterinarian and we hope that in the long-term your vet and you can see a marked improvement in your dog’s joint pain problem.
