    Defaultcosequin ds + vitamin c???

    I am currently giving Scout two Cosequin DS per day strictly for maintenance.* Is it necessary to also supplement vitamin C along with this?

    No. There's some speculation that Vitamin C (often given as Ester C to adult dogs to reduce the stomach irritation of ascorbic acid) may help because it is involved in cartilage formation. It certainly wouldn't hurt, but I can't imagine it would do anything for an otherwise healthy dog.

    I wouldn't for preventative. We gave Maddy Ester C during her recovery from Elbow Dysplasia surgery, but once it was healed, no more.
