    Default Adequan

    Been usung adequan for about 1 1/2 yrs now for my older displastic dog. Went online last night to order up some more and searched all the major pet supply houses and everybody says out of stock. Any body know any smaller suppliers that might have some in stock. I'm injecting a 2 ml dose monthly and it works well. Don't want him to get back into the pain he had before adequan. Bud

    Are you using the Equine solution? I have had no trouble buying for both dogs and horses thru my vet. it does require an Rx.

    Equine Adequan has been in short supply for 2-3 months, the manufacturer Luiptold says it will be available for shipping sometime this month, not sure about the canine version which seems to be in good supply. The pet supply retailers are the last ones to get products in short supply.

    Boy I sure would appreciate knowing where the canine version is in good supply....can't find it anywhere. My 16+ year old golden has been on it for quite some time, and it makes a huge difference. I have about 4 weeks left (she gets it once a week). Any leads on where to find some would be greatly appreciated. My vet is out, too, and is using the generic which is not chemically equivalent, and doesn't work for my dog.

    You could try Smartpak. They have canine adequan on their site. I get my horse's supplements from them and their customer service is top notch. They have a good canine selection too.
    I don't have their address off the top of my head, but a google search will bring it up.

    I will check again, asked office manager this AM if our Adequan supply was good and she said yes and was unaware of a supply problem. Spouse's horse is on it and we have been out for more than 2 months but did get an order acknowledgement from a supplier of Equine but no shipping date. My inquiries to Luitpold indicated it would be available end of May.

    Nate, where did you order yours from? Also, is there any difference in canine and equian adequan? talked with both novartis and luitpold today and neither can give me a shipping date, and are out of stock. petmeds says they have been out for about 2 weeks of canine. all the other suppliers say they are out also, not being a vet, can just go to retail outlets, still waiting for a call back from my vet to see if he has any in stock. i will google smartpak and try them.... thanks all....Bud
