This medication requires a prescription from a Penny Paws veterinarian. We will verify current prescriptions prior to filling the order.

What is Adequan?

Adequan Canine (for dogs) is used to control symptoms associated with degenerative or traumatic arthritis. Adequan requires a prescription from your veterinarian. A syringe is needed, but not included in the package. 

For dogs only.

Rebates available here.

Benefits:
  • Helps control noninfectious degenerative or traumatic arthritis
  • Good for postsurgery treatment
  • Starts to work within hours and stays in the joint for about three days
How it Works:

Adequan inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage within your dog's joints. It reduces inflammation and increases the thickness of joint (synovial) fluid.

Cautions:

Do not give this medication to breeding, pregnant, or lactating animals. Use with caution in animals with kidney or liver disease, or bleeding disorders.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Adequan:

Tell your veterinarian if your dog has any known or suspected bleeding disorders. Tell your veterinarian if your dog has any liver or kidney disease. Tell your veterinarian if your dog is breeding, pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Adequan is given by intramuscular (IM, into the muscle) injection. If you do not understand the directions ask your veterinarian to explain them to you. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Store Adequan at room temperature (64°-77° F). Keep this medication out of the reach of children and pets.
