Administration As A Supplement For Dogs

Dog’s Weight

Number of Tablets Per Day

Initial 4-6 Week Administration Period

Suggested Maintenance Level

Under 10 lbs.



10-29 lbs.



30-59 lbs.



Allow 4-6 weeks initially to note a response, though some dogs may respond sooner. If desired, the number of tablets may then be reduced to a maintenance level. Once consistent improvement is noted at the maintenance level, administration may be further reduced to every other day. The maintenance level can also be used long-term on healthy dogs to help support their joints. An individual dog’s needs may vary. Dogs on a maintenance level can be increased to the initial level as needed, e.g., on weekends or other times when they are more active, to provide extra support to the joints.

Ask your veterinarian about Dasuquin 150-count size, your best value.
