Limbering Up Limbs! ( How to Obtain Cosequin through your Veterinarian )

By Toni and Ed Eames

My guide dog has been delighting in her daily dose of chewable Dasuquin, a glucosamine/chondroitin preparation. Cosequin and its human counterpart CosaminDS, and Dasuquin are used to protect and support joint cartilage in animals and people. These universally acclaimed supplements produced by Veterinary Care Partnership sponsor Nutramax Laboratories will now be available to all IAADP assistance dog partner members whose veterinarians prescribe these advantageous preparations for their canine assistants.

Dr. Barbara Eves has developed a procedure to make the process simple and smooth. Your veterinarian will contact customer service at Nutramax Laboratories, 800-925-5187. A copy of your membership card will need to be faxed, and the Nutramax staff will verify eligibility. Upon confirmation of your current status, a six month supply of Cosequin or Dasuquin (ask for the chewable formula) will be mailed directly to your home.

IAADP salutes Dr. Barbara Eves who steered this program through the various company channels. Without her enthusiastic support, this partnership would never have been consummated.
