Subject: Cosequin Equine Powder for Dog
We just purchased a new container of Cosequin Equine powder for our horse 
and had used about a week's worth when unfortunately he became ill and is 
no longer with us. Our dog vet had recommended glucosamine for our greyhound 
who has broken her leg twice and I had recently purchased a liquid product 
for her, but I am wondering if I can give her the equine power and if so, 
what would be the dosage? She weighs 66 lbs. Thank you.

Dear Ms. Nash, 
Please accept our condolences at the loss of your horse. 
Yes, you may give your greyhound Cosequin Equine Powder. 
Please note that because the ratio of glucosamine to chondroitin sulfate 
is different in the Cosequin Equine Powder than the ratio in the dog 
formulation, an absolute direct correlation with administration amounts 
between the two products is not possible. Having noted that issue, you 
could start your pet on one scoop of Cosequin Equine Powder once a day. 
Once you use up the Cosequin Equine Powder, it would be more economical 
going forward to maintain your pet on the dog formulation, CosequinDS 
which is available in capsule form as well as in a tasty, chewable tablet 
taken as a treat!). 
If you have any further questions, or would like a client brochure about 
Cosequin, please contact our Technical Services Department at 
1-800-925-5187 between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm time eastern time Monday through Friday. 
Best wishes,
