Cosequin Optimized with MSM contains higher levels of active ingredients, now with double the glucosamine hydrochloride, at 14,400 mg and 2,400 mg of chondroitin sulfate (per 2 scoops), as compared to the original researched formula and is formulated as a tasty powder. This fortifying of ingredients in Cosequin Optimized stems from current research suggesting that those horses under high stress from intense activity may benefit from higher levels of glucosamine.
