Q & A
Can I give the capsule to the cat without sprinkling it??
Cosequin for Cats is a dietary supplement used to support joint health in cats. According to the manufacturer, it is okay to give the capsule to a cat whole instead of sprinkling the contents on top of food. The gelatin capsule will still dissolve in the stomach and deliver the dose as intended.Verified Answer

The description on the web page states that this formula includes Omega 3 Fatty Acids but I do not see that listed on the package insert. Does this formula contain Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Manganese, plus Omega 3s??
The manufacturer states that the Cosequin soft chews does contain Omega-3 with 15mg of EPA and 10mg of DHA, but the sprinkle capsules do not have Omega-3. Both the soft chews and sprinkle capsules have glucosamine, chondroitin, and manganese which is listed on the product insert located here: https://vetrxdirect.cvpservice.com/product/basic/view/1291004?prodnum=1291004Verified Answer
Hello, I give Cosequin for Cats to my 10 year old Persian cat, every day to build up a gel layer in her bladder because she has interstitial cystitis (unknown bladder irritation). She was just diagnosed with mild hperthyroidism and takes methimazole (for thyroid) and benazepril (for blood pressure). My concern is that the Cosequin's glucosamine is derived from shellfish (shellfish is high in iodine) and I don't want to be "adding" iodine to her system (I know a lot of food has iodine in it). Appreciate you help. Thanks?
VetRxDirect has contacted the manufacturer of the product but have not received an answer regarding this question on iodine content. At this time, we recommend that you contact the manufacturer or discuss this with your veterinarian.Verified Answer
