Hi. Sunshine the Cat here with a RIVETING report on MY BONES. As you know, I am now a GRAND DAME in age. I will turn 14 in human years soon and that means I am a little slower, a little less able to leap TALL BUILDINGS, and a little more cantankerous than in my younger days.
So when Chewy.com included Nutramax Cosequin Original Joint Health Sprinkle Capsules for cats in the February selections, I decided to give it a try, Why not? I am already creaky!
If you are not up to speed here, Nutramax Cosequin is Glucosamine Hydrochloride which is used for joint health. The capsules also contain Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Manganese. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Natural Flavor, Water, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide(Color), FD&C Red #3, And FD&C Blue#1. Aside from the Glucosamine, the other ingredients are to aid in efficacy.
Some of the benefits of taking a Glucosamine supplement are joint support and bladder health. These are the two major concerns for us elderly CATS.
The Nutramax Cosequin is easy to take as well - no shoving pills in this kitty's mouth! I won't have it! Instead, Nutramax Cosequin capsules can be opened and the contents sprinkled over MY MORNING meal. That is it! At first I managed to eat around it. But the HUMANS persisted and I finally decided to appease them. They MEAN well, after all.
It is hard to say how effective the treatment has been. Sometimes I am slow and sometimes I have a spring in my step. I do admit I have been jumping up to my meal counter a little more than a month ago when I sat and waited for assistance. Could be the Cosequin, could be coincidence. Who knows.
Since PREVENTION is as worthwhile as a CURE, then I say WHY not continue taking the Nutramax Cosequin. At my age it couldn't hurt and I do feel pretty good TODAY. My BONES have to last me a while longer so I am going to take care of them any way that I can.
I give this supplement a hearty 2+2 paws up for convenience of administering it and for the health benefits of Glucosamine Hydrochloride in general.
