I use a human variety, as it is far cheaper than the veterinary versions. I crush a tablet by using a mortar and pestel and give it a hefty sprinkle on my hedgehog's kibble.
Wa! It's a good news!!!
But, about the dosage(using Cosequin DS), I have questions:
Q3:One, half tablet, or less?
Q4:How many times a day?

Thanks to everyone replied this Subject!!!^___^
