Nutramax Study Says Cosequin Safe For Diabetic Cats

Cosequin for cats, said not to affect management of diabetes according to results.

Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. revealed results from a study that suggest Cosequin for Cats, a joint health supplement, will not affect the management of diabetes.

According to Nutramax, the study provides evidence of Cosequin’s safety in diabetic cats, many of whom could benefit from joint health support due to being overweight or geriatric.

Cosequin for Cats contains the active ingredients glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate. The study showed no major changes in the blood value fructosamine when the product was administered at label-recommended levels. Fructosamine levels reflect the average glucose levels during the previous two to three weeks. Despite safety indications, the company recommends pet owners check with their veterinarian before changing diet or management of a diabetic cat.

Nutramax noted that Cosequin’s glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are also available with the ingredient avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU) in Dasuquin providing advanced joint health support.
