What are Customers saying Pros This product is amazing. Our 10 month old Boxer was diaghosed with Hip Displasia. He had a difficult time getting up and walking after a long day. It was sad to see him in the state he was, especially since he was SO young. Our vet recommended Adequan injections and taught us to do them at home. It only took one day for his entire demeanor to change. Words cannot describe the difference. This medication has enabled him to live an active lifestyle :) he's running, jumping endlessly now - we got our puppy back. My pit was moving slowly and my vet wanted him to go on prescription meds at close to $100 a month so I got a second opinion. The second vet gave me joint supplements and these aspirin. That was 2 years ago, and although he has slowed a bit, it was much better than the alternative.
What are Customers saying Cons "...twice a week for 4 weeks and saw absolutely no improvement with either of them. The vet wasn't pushing Adequan either and now I'm wondering if they knew it didn't work very well,¿ -
Vet Recommendations Adequan product review: One of the first products of its kind in veterinary medicine, now in use over many years and thousands of dogs and happy dog guardians, my clinical experience with this pioneering injectable FDA approved joint supplement has also been very positive. By injecting this product intramuscularly, one avoids some of the problems with absorption that is occasionally seen with other natural joint supplements given orally. The polysulfated glycosaminglycan solution quickly goes to the joints that need it, modifying the disease process of degenerative joint disease, by inhibiting enzymes that break down the supportive cartilage of the joints, while at the same time increasing the thickness of the lubricating joint fluid, just as shock absorbers do for ones automobile. The results are a decrease in inflammation and joint pain. I have even used this product in cats on occasion with terrific results, which is so important, given the paucity of effective and safe drugs for cats available on the market for arthritis. Results can be seen within hours to days. I usually will follow the manufacturer's recommendations giving it twice weekly for first 4 weeks. Some pets will have long term relief, while others will need periodic injections anywhere from every 2-4 weeks. I will often combine use of this product with omega 3 fatty acids, as well as antioxidants like proanthozone, also available from 1-800-PetMeds, and find that with this multipronged supplement approach, that I often can avoid the need for stronger prescription drugs which may have occasional side effects. The only side effects I have occasionally seen in animals is very rare bleeding tendencies. This is best avoided by having blood work done first by your veterinarian to make sure there are no pre-existing problems of the liver or kidneys that may predispose to this. The only other negative I can see is the need to get your vet to write a prescription for it, and the need for some clients to get over the fear of learning how to give these injections to their pets at home. Once I have shown clients the first time, they often find it quite easy and money-saving to do it right at home themselves. I give this product an overall efficacy rating of a 5, with an ease of use a 3. Currently under review
