  • Not a Miracle but still a very good product.
    Adequan is touted as a miracle cure...well for me it is not! Adequan is still a very good product. It has helped my Mia greatly. She may not run around like a puppy, but she has some decent relief and can enjoy the remaining part of her life in relative comfort. Might I suggest a DIY approach. The shots are relatively easy to give and you will save a good sum of money. by on 02/15/2020
  • Works, but needs to come in smaller doses
    My 55 lb dog takes 1/4 of a pill. Small dogs must just get a sniff.... by on 09/29/2019
  • Adequan Canine
    Our Charlie has been getting his injections twice a week for 2 months and his limping in both front legs has ceased. No more anti-inflammatory meds. He has one more injection, so the real proof will be how he is a month from now. Stay tune for an update. by on 09/12/2019

  • highly recommend for athritis
    My 10 year old 100lb lab was limping every day due to hip arthritis. My vet recommended this as an alternative to daily oral arthritis and pain medication. I bought the first box from him and the key issue is that it does not have to go in the muscle to be effective. You simply grab them by the scruff of the neck and inject in under the skin. Yes, you have to buy your own syringes with needles, but different dogs will most likely need a different size needle. I use a 3cc with a 21guage 1 1/2inch needle. I would use at least a 1 inch needle. It appears to cause him little or no discomfort, as opposed to an IM injection. As I recall, we started with twice a week for 3 weeks. We noticed a big improvement after 2 weeks. We then tried to space it out to the recommended once monthly, but noticed he was limping around 2-3 weeks. We settled on an every 2 week schedule, sometimes a little longer. He can walk a mile at the dog park every day with no limping. Sometimes he even runs a little bit, though we discourage it. I get 2 doses from each bottle or 4 per box, so I am buying a box every 2 months. Obviously your vet will advise you on the correct dose, but that gives you an idea of the cost. I was surprised how effective it is, especially since it is apparently a form of glucosamine. I was also surprised how quickly it worked. It is possible your dog may require less frequent dosing, but that is what works for us and the difference is remarkable. by on 04/25/2018
  • Less than half the price paid at the Vet!
    The exact medicine that I purchased from the Vet at Less Than Half the Price. The injections of Adequan Canine let us skip surgery on her torn ACL. by on 04/13/2018
  • Great one shot per month alternative to daily pills
    My Collie, Joey, has been on tramadol for hip and arthritis issues for a long time and his vet recommended this adequan shot as an alternative. He tolerates the shot very well (I give it to him at home subcutaneously) and it is much better that I only have to do it once a month rather than trying to get a daily pill he cant stand down his throat. He has been on adequan for almost a year now and I can tell a decided difference in how he runs and walks and his lab tests always come back normal, so I am not concerned with the long term effects of this medicine on his kidneys like some of the other arthritis treatment options that are out there. by on 03/19/2018
  • Great support for hip issues
    Joey had been on Gabopentin and Tramodol for a very long time and they were starting to lost their effectiveness on his weak hip issues. Our vet recommended a change to Galliprant daily and a once a month shot of adequan. Joey gets around much better now and the shots are easy to give under the skin. He has been on these meds since mid summer and I haven't noticed any negative side effects so far. Very pleased. Also, I've cross-shopped this medicine about everywhere I can, and this site has by far the best prices on adequan and galliprant. I usually get my pet meds at Costco, but these are two they do not carry. by on 12/17/2017
  • Adequan Canine
    We have a 7 1/2 year old, 82 pound Lab that torn his ACL Ligament. He has had 2 surgeries to correct the problem, but still won't put any weight on his left back leg. The last visit to the Vet, we were told that he had bone on bone movement and that he was in pain. The Vet gave us pain pills to treat the problem. I am one that does not want my dog on pain pills for the rest of his life. I found this product on line and had the Vet prescribe the medicine for our pup. I have given him 2 shots so far, a week apart. After the first shot we could see improvement by the next day. After the 2nd shot the following week, we again saw more improvement. He seems to be putting more weight on his leg when he walks. When he's laying on the floor he isn't in constant movement with his bad leg, he can relax and take a nap. We have not witnessed any side effects so far. He seems to do doing fine and I will continue with the shot program the Vet set for us. by on 07/12/2016
  • Arthritis
    This medication is very effective in alleviating the arthritic pain. Easy to inject. by on 06/24/2016
  • Miracle drug?
    Our 15 year old Westie has (among other things) malformed hips that have caused ruptured ligaments in both knees. Even with surgery the little guy was hopping around on three legs. At the suggestion of friends, we made an appointment with an equine vet, who have been prescribing Adequan to treat lame horses for years. Between regular chiropractic, cold laser and Adequan treatments, he's happily wobbling around on all four legs. Miracle drug? Pretty close I'd say. It also helps our 12 year old Silky Terrier with a touch of arthritis. by on 06/19/2016
  • Helps my 13 year old lab
    There aren't many more alternatives to try to help my old lab get around. This appears to help. Don't like sticking him with a needle twice a week. But it seems to be worth it. by on 06/16/2016
  • Best yet, it seems to work
    Our 8 year old doodle has arthritis and this appears to have helped a great deal. She loves to run on the beach and usually ends up limping but with the Adequan she can run without pain. by on 05/24/2016
  • My dog now never suffers from the pain of arthritis
    Adequate has made a significant improvement in the treatment of arthritis in my dog. by on 05/09/2016
  • Rejuvenate
    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. by on 05/02/2016
  • 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. by on 02/12/2016
  • What I needed
    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. by on 01/12/2016
  • Adequan for my doggie. Works!
    Hello, all,My doggie May, has serious hip displasia. Had it for years. Without Adequan Canine, she limps and won't jump up onto the couch. by on 01/08/2016
  • Great Product
    Your service is very easy to use. You save me over $ 1200/yr. at least. This helps afford other care that is needed. My Newfi is my most important person in my life. Thank you. You guys really have the program and make our life better. by on 01/12/2015
  • Happy dog, Happy Mommy
    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!! by on 11/03/2013
  • 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! by on 11/02/2013
  • Depend on it!
    I have a mastiff that has had both ACL's repaired and is 12 years old! Amazing gal, but keeps on keeping on with the help of her bi-monthly Adequan injections. I have her on several other medications as well. I can always tell when it is time for the next injection as she begins to slow down. However, once I administer it within a day or so she is much better. I call her my million dollar dog!!! It does help to purchase from Pet Care RX on the cost! by on 10/06/2012

Almost two years on meds,he is doing great ... ... by on 05/29/2012
  • 9 yr old lab- renewed energy and love of life
    Oh My Gosh.... I was certain our 9 yr old lab was headed for hip surgery for sure. We've known she had hip dysplasia since she was a puppy and have made sure to add glucosamine and chondroitin & fish oil for years and years. We kept her trim and provided lots of opportunities for swim workouts. However, over the last 4-5 months, she had declined so much she could hardly walk a mile w/out major limping and terrible stiffness and pain. Our vet recommended Adequan instead and I've been so overjoyed to see the spring in her step again- after just a few doses. Thank goodness for this option! by on 01/17/2012
  • Adequan - a miracle!!!!
    HIP HIP HOORAY - a miracle drug that is helping my 7 year old shih tzu have a normal life again..She is actually putting all four feet on the ground when she runs and plays with the other 2 playmates here. It was heart breaking to see her limp with Arthritis pain. My mother recommended Adequan. Always listen to your mother!! I spoke with my vet; and here we are....HAPPY. By the way she was having trouble with her right front foot. I certainly will recommend this to other dog parents.... by on 07/24/2011

    This really helps my Pug feel better. I can tell the difference after he takes it. He is more playful. by on 03/07/2011
  • this is miraculous!!!
    My dog was no longer able to get up on his own,but after taking this medication, acts like a puppy again! He is a little sore the first evening after getting the shot,but not sore enough to lay around doing nothing.I feel like this med saved my dogs life, and would strongly suggest any owner of an arthritic suffering animal consider the higher costs of this med. Its well worth trying to save your best pals life. by on 12/01/2009
  • As close to a miracle drug as I can find.
    I have not purchased Adequan through PetCareRx yet but plan to soon. My 2 year old dog has gotten Adequan injections since his diagnosis of Arthritis 6 months ago. He is on no other meds. The difference has been INCREDIBLE. He is no longer slow to give up and I do not hear his joints cracking as I did before. You can still see the stiffness but it's impact on him seems much less significant. Talk to your vet about this! by on 11/19/2009
