I give my dog a food that contains glucosamine and chondroitin. Do I still need Cosequin?

0

Yes. None of the foods contain the researched combination of high quality ingredients in Cosequin. The amount of glucosamine and chondroitin in dog food is minimal. Even if these diets contained high quality glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, according to the amounts listed on the labels a large-breed dog would need to consume more than a full 5 pound bag daily to obtain the amounts found in CosequinDS. In addition, both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate may degrade when subjected to the heat or extreme pressure in the manufacturing process of commercial dog food.
