Adequan Canine

Prescription Adequan is an injectable medication administered by veterinarians to treat the symptoms of non-infectious degenerative or traumatic arthritis in dogs.  This medicine eases pain and swelling while also treating the disease.

  • Eases symptoms of traumatic and non-infectious arthritis
  • For dogs only
  • Intramuscular injectable medicine administered by your veterinarian

 

Adequan not only treats symptoms of certain types of arthritis, it also modifies the disease. The active ingredient, polysulfated glycosaminoglycan, is a Disease-Modifying Osteoarthritis Drug (DMOAD). This powerful, FDA-approved agent reduces symptoms and treats the disease by reducing joint damage and repairing damaged cartilage.  Because this medication is formulated as an intramuscular injection, you must make an appointment with your pet's veterinarian who will administer the injection.  Your dog may require several injections over a specific period of time.  

 

What you should know about Adequan:

  • Talk to your pet's veterinarian before using this product. 
  • Contact your veterinarian to arrange a dosing schedule.  
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

      Suellyn,

      As we understand it, from information provided on adequan's website, the new manufacturer has begun making the medication again.  However, the manufacturer has not provided a time frame for general availability of the product.  We will update our website as soon as we are able to stock adequan again.

      Thank you,

      Kathy, 

      Currently, the best source of information on the availablity of Adequan is to visit http://www.adequan.com/ where you can find a press release from Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Adequan. You will also find a link where you can sign up to receive more information and updates as it becomes available.

      Until then, we recommend talking to your veterinarian about the best alternatives to Adequan for your pet.

Great medicine!

Comments about Novartis Adequan Canine:

We've been using this for our 7-year old Great Pyrenees, adopted by us about 6 years ago. He had apparently been "turned out" by his owner in the North Georgia Mountains, where he was probably supposed to be a working dog. However, he has severe patellar lunation in both knees and has a great deal of difficulty getting up, going up stairs, etc. Adequan was recommended to us by an Auburn University vet, and the improvement has been dramatic. He still has very weak knees and musculature in his back legs, but his ease of movement has greatly improved. This is a great medicine for any dog with joint issues.

Comments about Novartis Adequan Canine:

Our 13yo. dog Misty has been on Adequan for over a year now. It has greatly helped with her mobility. She has an ankle that has broken down (she wears a brace) and she has arthritis in her hips. Very good product.

Comments about Novartis Adequan Canine:

My 6 yo English Mastiff has been on this for a couple years for his hips. It makes a world of difference for him. When it went off the market for a while he slowly went back to being very sore and lame in his hind end. Thank god it's back and our boy is feeling ever so much better!!!

Comments about Novartis Adequan Canine:

I thought my GSD's hiking days were over 1.5 years ago when she started limping and x-rays found severe arthritis in her knee and spine. We started Adequan along with supplements and monthly chiropractor visits. She went back to hiking and can still hike 6-8 miles at a time, only taking Deramaxx on hiking days. She will be turning 14 in a couple of months.

Comments about Novartis Adequan Canine:

I researched arthritis solutions for my 8 year old German Shepherd and found rave reviews about Adequan. So, after asking my vet for it, Jakie got his first injection. Wow, what a difference it made. He could get up--which he could not before. The initial treatment is twice a week for 4 weeks, then probably once a month. The other injections have not been as dramatic, but after 6 injections, he is still improving and seems to be happier and better able to walk. We still need to use the ramp for him to get into the car. Jakie has two more injections to go and we remain hopeful that the treatment will continue to work. By the way, he is still on a pain medication also, but that alone did not give the results that Adequan has. Anyone who has a dog with similar symptoms suffers with the canine, so medications which work are a boon not only to our beloved family member but also to us. Reviews note that Adquan doesn't work in 100 % of the cases but a majority of dogs do benefit. I understand that it is used on horses also.

Adequan

Comments about Novartis Adequan Canine:

Adequan works! My dog now takes this injection monthly to maintain the mobility and comfort that he has gained from using this med. I have no trouble giving the IM injection...he doesn't even seem to mind getting it. This has definitely improved my dogs quality of life! He is 11 and still swims in the lake every day without limping afterwards. He was in so much pain before. It's rather expensive, but it is well worth it!
