Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING MEDICINE This is the second dog I have started on Adequan. It has been the difference between night and day for both of my senior-ish dogs. Now I am looking for a version for humans. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She lives her walks! My 11yr old Carolina Dingo has had a bad hip/joint problem from many years of sprinting. It’s gotten a little rough as she ages. She’s been on Adequan for a year now and I’m so happy she gets to enjoy her walks again without pain! She can hold her own when it comes to her 2yr old, 150# St Bernard mix brother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A world of difference My 10 year old black lab started having issues with his shoulder 2 years ago. My vet recommended Adaquan. I cannot believe what a difference what this had made in his life and activity level. He is a active duck hunting dog who spends 20+ days in the field. Prior to Aequan I thought it would be his last season 2 years ago. He was super slow in the field and in a lot of pain when he got home from hunting. I started him on Adequan and after one month it was like he was 4 years younger. He runs much faster and is not sore at the end of the bunting day This year I did increase his shots from once a month to 2 times a month. Again huge difference. Even my hunting buddies cannot believe that he is 10 years old and still so active. Also my wife’s 13 year old lab pit bull mix has benefited from this. Cannot give a higher recommendation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miraculous! My dog can get up again! I can't believe how well this works. My dog couldn't get up off the floor for over two months when my vet suggested I try this. After the sequence of shots and about a month he got up on his own and has been eve since. I give him booster hot every two weeks. He is 75 lbs so he gets 1.5 ml./2 wks. He is like 8 years old again (his real age is 14). Thank God for Adequan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Results! My husky has a tear in her CCL that we are trying to treat with conservative measures. This is her 2nd one, and we didn’t want to put her through another TPLO surgery. Our holistic vet recommended Adequan a long with physical therapy and Prolotherapy injections. She has had 4 injections every 4 days, and she appears to be in less pain and getting around better, acting more herself. I’m hoping this combination works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing product This medication was suggested by our Vet for our golden retriever with elbow dysplasia. Before the medication he was hesitant to play, lame after running or slow to rise due to joint pain. Adequan returned the life and viability to our 2 year old golden, he now runs with other dogs, no longer has trouble rising and I haven't seen a raised paw due to pain since using it. I highly recommend it to return the viability and quality of life back to your dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 12-year-old English Labrador Retriever -Champ My son, Champ has been on Adequan for at least six years and it has been a game-changer for him. I highly recommend it.

What is Adequan Canine?

Adequan Canine (for dogs) is used to control symptoms associated with degenerative or traumatic arthritis. It is an injectable polysulfated glycosaminoglycan (PSGAG) and is the only FDA approved product of its type. Adequan has been clinically shown to help treat the disease while giving relief from pain. It modifies the disease cycle, stimulates cartilage repair processes and diminishes joint damage while reducing the pain caused by osteoarthritis. Adequan requires a prescription from your veterinarian. A syringe is needed, but not included in the package.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Helps control noninfectious degenerative or traumatic arthritis
  • Good for postsurgery treatment
  • Starts to work within hours and stays in the joint for about three days

How does Adequan Canine work?

Adequan inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage within your dog's joints. It reduces inflammation and increases the thickness of joint (synovial) fluid.

Cautions:

Not for use in humans. Do not give this medication to breeding, pregnant, or lactating pets. Use with caution in pets with kidney or liver disease, or bleeding disorders.

Brand Name:

Adequan (Manufactured by Luitpold)

Generic Name:

Polysulfated Glycosaminoglycan (PSGAG) Solution

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Adequan Canine?

Tell your veterinarian if your dog has any known or suspected bleeding disorders. Tell your veterinarian if your dog has any liver or kidney disease. Tell your veterinarian if your dog is breeding, pregnant or lactating.

How should Adequan Canine be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Adequan is given by intramuscular (IM, into the muscle) injection. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Store Adequan at 68 - 77 F (20 - 25 C) excursions permitted to 59 - 86 (15 - 30 C). Keep this medication out of the reach of children and pets.

What are the possible side effects of Adequan Canine?

Few side effects are seen following Intramuscular injection. Stop giving Adequan and seek emergency veterinary medical attention if an allergic reaction (facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma) should occur. Bleeding from the nose, blood in the feces, or dark and tarry stools may indicate a decreased ability of blood to clot. Contact your veterinarian if you notice these symptoms. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effects that seem unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Adequan Canine?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
