In February of 1992 we were able to 'save' our kitty boy Rocky from his perilous life in the wilds of our neighborhood. He was just a kitten born the summer before and scared to death of everyone. He's taken refuge under our house out of the winter weather. He was a very loving kitty boy and happy to be part of our family.
That was 17 years ago and he's 18 this month. How time has flown by! When he was about twelve we noticed that he was doing a lot of limping around in the winter time just like an old man in pain. In doing some research I found out that Cosequin for cats was suppose to work very well in alleviating that pain. And, a side benefit was that the medication in the capsules worked to keep cartilage supple too. Since bladders are essentially cartilage, I believe it has helped him not to have any problems in that area too.
While this is an affiliate post, I am a genuine user of the medication and highly recommend it for cats (and dogs) who may be having pain problems. Rocky runs through the house daily. It took just about two weeks for the Cosequin to get in his system and begin working for him. Each animal is different though, so if you use it, give your pet time to absorb the daily dose.
I order from 1800-Pet-Meds because they always get my order correct and it is sent very quickly. I think many times they fill the order and get it sent the same day. Cosequin doesn't cost $39, but it would be easy to get your flea medicines at the same time and save on shipping. It's that time of year for those little creepy crawlers you know.
