Seraquin contains the highest quality, pure chondroitin and glucosamine, two elements are vital building blocks in the formation of cartilage that occur naturally in the body. What makes Seraquin different is the inclusion of curcumin, a potent natural anti-oxidant that has powerful free radical scavenging properties. Curcumin is extracted from turmeric and reduces the destructive affects of free radicals on tissues including the joints. The addition of these extracts form the basis of the unique patented composition of Seraquin. This means the regular use of Seraquin could contribute to your dogs ability to maintain and renew joint structure. It can be safely given with NSAIDs pain control medications, like Rimadyl/Novox (carprofen), Deramaxx, Metacam, Previcox, EtoGesic (etodolac). Seraquin can become part of the overall approach to managing osteoarthritis in partnership with the NSAIDs. Seraquin supports the joints while pain control medications treat the signs of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis
Most dogs and cats will take Seraquin chewable tablets readily as they are very palatable, but they may also be crumbled into the food.
The recommended dose is Less than 10kg (22lbs) bodyweight -1 daily. 10-20 kg - 2 daily 20-40kg - 3 daily. Over 40kg - 4 a day. This can normally be reduced further after an initial 4-6 week period on the supplement to a maintenance dose of ½ the starting dose. To get to this, the dose should be reduced every week by ½ tablet. If a dose reduction step causes regression in the improvement shown, the previous weeks dose should be re-instated. How long does it take to work? It is not a quick fix as it is designed to support the joint tissue, not reduce inflammation per se. Usually 4-6 weeks on full dosage is required before a difference is noticed, but this may occur earlier.Recommended Dosage
