Just like in humans, your cat’s joints are formed where
two bones meet. The ends of the bones are cushioned
by cartilage, a slippery and tough tissue produced and
maintained by its own specialized cells. The cartilage,
joint fluid, and underlying bone work together like a shock
absorber allowing flexible joint function. Cartilage lacks
a direct blood supply, so nutrients must pass into the
cartilage from surrounding tissue. These nutrients sustain
cartilage cells and provide the components necessary to
maintain a healthy cartilage structure.
When a cat is in motion there is tremendous pressure
on the joint. In a healthy joint, cartilage production and
breakdown are in balance. Scientists are not sure about
all the factors that cause cartilage breakdown; however,
they have discovered enzymes that play a role. Cartilage
breakdown can exceed the process of production,
especially, though not only, in very active and older cats.
Joint health can then be affected resulting in less
flexibility. You might notice that your cat does
not get up easily, or is reluctant to climb stairs
or their cat tower.
How do I know if my cat needs Dasuquin®?
Dasuquin is a joint health supplement which helps
maintain cartilage structure and inhibits the enzymes
that break down cartilage components. It may be a good
time to ask your veterinarian about Dasuquin if you notice
that your cat is less eager to jump or play or otherwise
appears less mobile. Your veterinarian will examine your
cat to determine if he/she could benefit from Dasuquin.
If your veterinarian has already recommended Dasuquin,
the sooner it is started the more opportunity your pet will
have to respond. Your veterinarian may also suggest using
Dasuquin as a protective measure. Dasuquin may also be
used to help support cartilage following joint surgery.
What is Dasuquin?
Dasuquin is the #1 joint health brand
recommended by veterinarians.u
It is the most complete joint support
supplement available for cats and goes
beyond standard glucosamine supplements. Dasuquin
contains NMX1000®* avocado/soybean unsaponifiables
(ASU), decaffeinated tea, FCHG49®* glucosamine, and
TRH122®* chondroitin sulfate in sprinkle capsules.
What do the ingredients in Dasuquin do?
The combination of the glucosamine and chondroitin
sulfate supports cartilage matrix production and helps
block enzymes in joints that break down cartilage. These
ingredients together have been shown in published studies
to protect joint cartilage better than either one alone.
ASU stands for avocado/soybean unsaponifiables, an
ingredient obtained from avocados and soybeans. ASU
has been shown to support joint function and comfort
levels. ASU complements the positive effects of the
glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in Dasuquin. Cell
culture studies have shown that glucosamine/chondroitin
sulfate plus ASU works better than glucosamine/
chondroitin sulfate alone at inhibiting mediators involved
in cartilage breakdown. Lastly, the highly absorbable tea
in Dasuquin is rich in antioxidants, which have a positive
effect on cartilage as well as on overall body defenses.
Tea also supports wellness.
What should I look for when giving Dasuquin?
Observe your cat closely, and notice whether your cat
seems more comfortable doing those activities he/
she seemed reluctant doing or had some trouble doing
previously. Changes in your cat’s comfort level may occur
gradually. Allow time for your cat to respond. It may take
4–6 weeks, though some cats may respond sooner.
My veterinarian mentioned that Dasuquin
can be used to help maintain the health of
my cat’s bladder. How does this work?
Some veterinarians may recommend Dasuquin to help
maintain urinary bladder health. The inner lining of the
bladder wall is protected by a layer, which contains some
of the same compounds as are found in cartilage. This
layer keeps urine and the waste products contained
within it from seeping into and affecting the lining. Since
the chondroitin sulfate found in Dasuquin is available to
more than just cartilage cells, the bladder may use it to
help support this protective layer.
Where do I purchase Dasuquin?
Dasuquin is available from your veterinarian. As your
pet’s health care professional, your veterinarian is
best qualified to decide if Dasuquin may benefit your
cat and can monitor your pet’s response, making any
adjustments necessary to the administration level.
How is Dasuquin administered?
Dasuquin For Cats capsules contain a tasty natural
chicken and tuna flavored powder. The capsule should
be opened and contents mixed with or sprinkled over
the food. The capsule may instead be “pilled” if more
convenient. The recommended initial administration
period is 4–6 weeks. For cats under 10 lbs, administer
one capsule sprinkled on food daily. For cats 10 lbs and
over, administer two capsules sprinkled on food daily.
Once desired response is obtained, capsules may be
administered every other day to maintain your cat.
Number of capsules administered may be increased
at any time depending on your cat’s needs. For more
detailed administration guidelines, please see package.
Are there any safety concerns with Dasuquin?
The ingredients in Dasuquin have been evaluated
in a safety study in cats, and no adverse effects were
noted from administration. There are no known
contraindications or known interactions between
Dasuquin and any drug or nutritional supplement.
