Seraquin

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.

Joint health and your pet

Because you know your dog best, you are well placed to keep an eye out for the following signs:

  • Difficulty in jumping
  • Limping or stiffness
  • Reluctance to play
  • Change in grooming habits e.g. licking at joints
  • Change in temperament e.g. increased anxiety or less tolerant with children and/or other pets

If you have noticed any of these changes in your pet, it is worth consulting your veterinary surgeon for advice.

How Seraquin can help

Seraquin 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.

Seraquin can be given alongside any prescription medicines that your vet may recommend to help in the control of pain and inflammation.

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.
