Adequan Canine Description
Arthritis is a common and incredibly frustrating disease for aging dogs. Adequan Canine is used to provide relief by controlling symptoms associated with degenerative or traumatic arthritis. This drug must be injected intramuscularly to ensure it reaches the critical parts of the joint. Once administered, it goes to work in about two hours, and for roughly three days, Adequan Canine will reduce inflammation and increasing the thickness of joint fluid.
Adequan Canine helps maintain cartilage density and ensure that joints are healthy. If your dog is suffering from joint pain due to arthritis, administering this medicine should result in signs of improvement within four weeks.
Each mL contains: 100 mg PSGAG, 0.9% v/v benzyl alcohol as a preservative and Water for Injection q.s. to 1 ML. Sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid added when necessary to adjust pH.
Side Effects and Warnings
Side effects rarely occur following an intramuscular injection, but stop use and alert your veterinarian if you sense your dog is having an allergic reaction to the medicine (symptoms include facial swelling, intense scratching, bleeding from the nose, blood in stools and more).

The adequan was an effective med for our German Shepherd. It gave her more play in her step. In the beginning it was miraculous. As her arthritis and lack of strength progressed, she would constantly fall as we lifted her bottom up just before the shot was do. We followed a 10-day frequency before, with tears flowing, we did what was best for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shepherdmom1 Works but it will cost you
This helps our 11 year old german shepherd with hip issues. Weve increased his injections from once a week to twice a week as his hips worsen. The product works great, but for a dog that is hos size its quite expensive. Also we've had to get him needles to inject it from our pharmacy, which is a bit of a hassel. If you buy an injectable product it should include needles to inject it.

Works for my old dog!! She is not limping at all. This is injectable and I do it myself (I am a physician for humans) but you can go monthly to your vet if you can't inject.

Our 13.5 yr old Lhasa Apso's mobility has improved since starting on Adequan about 5 months ago. She has suffered from hip dysplasia for many years and had been taking Previcox. Her pain had gotten much worse and our Vet recommended Adequan, it has made Cuddles life much more enjoyable!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jorie Works miracles for my 15 year old dog
My 15 year old dog was suffering from arthritis in her hips, sleeping all day and night, moving slowly and painfully, loss of bowel control. After the first injection we noticed an immediate improvement and after the second and third shots my Chica dog was back to much of her old self!!! She's up during the day, bowel control regained, actively involved in family life again. No more tears thinking I had to put her to sleep. I can't say enough good things about this medication. Thanks to PetCareRX for great service!
