Description

Adequan Injectable for Dogs is an injectable medication prescribed to help manage arthritis and joint problems in dogs. It may also help restore joint lubrication, relieve inflammation and renew the foundation of healthy cartilage. For over 20 years, this medication has been prescribed and trusted by veterinarians to help moderate signs connected with non-infectious degenerative and/or traumatic arthritis of canine synovial joints.

Uses

Adequan is recommended for the treatment of noninfectious degenerative and/or traumatic joint dysfunction and associated lameness of the carpal joint in dogs.

Possible Side Effects

Side effects are rare possible. The most common problems associated with Adequan are pain/swelling at the injection site or blood clotting problems. Decreased blood clotting can cause nose bleeds or gastrointestinal bleeding which can cause bloody stool or vomiting. Some dogs are allergic to Adequan but this is not common. Contact your veterinarian right away if your pet is acting unusual after an injection is given.

Drug & Food Interactions

Advise your vet of all medications and supplements your pet is taking. Drugs that can affect blood clotting (ex. heparin, warfarin) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may interact. Other drug interactions are possible.

Precautions

Pets with bleeding disorders, kidney disease, and liver disease may have a higher risk of side effects. Breeding, lactating, and pregnant dogs should not be given Adequan.

  • Worth every penny!

    By on

    I was starting to consider whether I should put her down due to her pain. We started with a new vet and she prescribed Adequan. My dog had improved tremendously after about 2 weeks. And I mean she was running and keeping up with our younger dogs and she is much happier! It seemed almost unreal how much this helped her! It has literally saved her life!

  • Relief from arthritis pain

    By on

    Maverick is a Welsh Terrier, over 16 years of age with arthritis in all four legs and also his spine. He has a sensitive stomach and cannot tolerate oral pain meds, so the injections have given him some relief and kept him moving a little more comfortably. Chewy has adequan at a good price and their service and delivery is always excellent.

  • Very effective

    By on

    I've been using Adquan for years with my arthritic lab. It keeps her moving, and seems to give her the needed relief without going to NSAIDS. Since Chewy has opened their pharmacy, I have been able to get this at the best price, and more quickly than other online stores.

  • Definitely worth the money

    By on

    My 11 year old lab mix has had 2 knee surgeries and developed arthritis. One day she could barely stand. I immediately took her to thre vet. He recommend Adequan, and she's been on it for about 6 months. She's not running around like her old self, but she's not struggling like she was before using this. It's made a big difference. I highly recommend it!

  • Wonderful option

    By on

    Our dog had surgery two months ago and was struggling with recovery . Is 9 1/2 years old and is a Labrador. He was trying anti-inflammatories and we moved into this and he’s done wonderful on it. The results are quite good and this seems like a much better option and steroids and other pain medications. So far so great on this one.

    My 14 year old lab is very arthritic. This injection that I give him myself twice a week gives him relief and puts a hip back in his step.

  • Great product, doesn't come w/ necessary syringes!

    By on

    This product is wonderful and is a great price! It's $40 cheaper than my vet's office and has made a huge difference in our 12 year old lab's legs! She can get up and down more easily and walks less stiffly! Be warned, though, no syringes come with this. It costs me just $1 to get 3 of the syringes from my vet's office, so no big deal.

  • Great price

    By on

    My oldest shepherd takes Adequan regularly. The Chewy.com price is more affordable than purchasing directly from my veterinarian. It is extremely convenient with delivery services as well. I am so happy that I can buy her meds from a reliable source!

    Only issue is finding the syringes of the correct size for the prescription.
