I have mine on Cosequin DS chewables. They're both getting one tablet per day now, but I'm thinking about increasing Riley to two.
They recommend a 'starting' dosage for the first 4 - 6 weeks, then a maintenance level. There's a good, real easy to follow chart on the label.
It's pricey. ($60 for 100 tablets.) I've thought about trying less expensive alternatives, but I've seen such good results with Cosequin that I'm afraid to try something else.
It worked wonders for one of our Goldens. By age 7, he was suffering from arthritis, to the point where he had a hard time getting up from a lying down position. We put him on Cosequin and within three months, he was running around like a maniac. He was still getting serious cases of the zoomies at 11 years of age.
