I used to get Cosequin from the vet and paid upwards to a 100.00$ and always had wonderful results. Came to find out it was merely glucosamine & chondroitin and could be purchased at a fraction of the cost. Because it was not flavored, I anticipated a struggle getting it down, but was pleasantly surprised when the dog gobbled it up. Curious, I popped one in my mouth, chewed it up and was surprised, it was not medicinal tasting, but actually sweet. Shake the pill bottle and everybody comes a runnin'.
