Manufacturer of Cosequin Equine, the Leading Joint Health Product for Horses, Introduces Cosequin Optimized Formulas

Horse Supplements


For over a decade horse owners have relied on Cosequin(R) Equine Powder to maintain their horses' joint health. Now the makers of the #1 veterinarian-recommended joint health supplement* are proud to introduce Cosequin(R) Optimized and Cosequin(R) Optimized with MSM.

Cosequin Optimized contains higher levels of active ingredients, now with double the glucosamine hydrochloride, at 14,400 mg, and 2,400 mg of chondroitin sulfate (per 2 scoops), as compared to the original researched formula and is formulated as a tasty powder. This fortifying of ingredients in Cosequin Optimized stems from current research suggesting that those horses under high stress from intense activity may benefit from higher levels of glucosamine.

Cosequin Optimized with MSM has the same levels of active ingredients as Cosequin Optimized but has the further addition of high purity MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane. MSM is an organic source of sulfur, a compound used by cartilage. Some veterinarians suggest using MSM to help manage joint health. Cosequin Optimized with MSM for horses contains 10,000 mg MSM per 2 scoops. For those wishing to additionally supplement MSM, Cosequin Optimized with MSM offers a convenient, cost-effective way to administer MSM along with the proven ingredients in Cosequin.

"We are very excited with the addition of these two new products to our equine product line," said Tara Cullen, Associate Product Manager of Equine. "Cosequin has always been the premier product for equine joint health, and now with Cosequin Optimized and Cosequin Optimized with MSM we have provided additional economical, effective choices for horse owners looking to maximally assist the joint health of their horses."
