How Seraquin can help your pet...
Seraquin is a veterinary joint support product for dogs and cats. Available in two sizes, Seraquin is a chewable tablet that can be given as a tasty treat. It is a joint supplement containing Glucosamine and Chondroitin. These ingredients occur naturally in the body, as part of the make-up of cartilage.What makes Seraquin special is the inclusion of curcuminoids, which are potent natural antioxidants. This ingredient may help mop up free radicals in the joint which contribute to degeneration of the cartilage. It can also be given alongside any prescription medicines that your vet may recommend.
Being so palatable, Seraquin is easy to give to dogs and cats. Most cats and dogs love Seraquin chewable tablets which makes life easy. You can give them as a treat or crush them onto their normal food.
The number of tablets that you should give them depends on their weight. Your vet will advise you on this. Seraquin is available in two sizes: 2g for dogs above 10kg and 800mg for cats and small dogs.
How long will Seraquin take to make a difference?
Seraquin is designed to support the natural functioning of joints and takes time to build up in the system. We recommend 4–6 weeks at the starting level and then the number of tablets can be gradually reduced on the advice of your vet.
Seraquin can form part of your pet’s diet for the rest of his/her life.
