    Default Experience with Adequan

    Has anyone had any experience with the medication Adequan?

    The vet that is currently treating my dogs sprained carpal joint believes this medication could help the healing process. Just looking to see if anyone else had used the medication and what their opinion was.

    Were using the the Adequan in conjunction with a low dose of Novox and limited activity.

    It helped my dog when he injured his neck and back. He was really bad and had difficulty walking. Two months of Adequan and h was like new. That was three years ago. I am going to start him on it again next week because he is having back problems again. I highly recommend it.

    I have used it on and off for years. It works really well. Used it for both injuries and arthritis.

    Been using it for 2 years now. He doesn't seem any better but he is definitely not worse...cold laser treatments have been the miracle treatment for him.

    I give adequan injections to Sinner every month. She also gets Dasuquin MSM, Phycox, LigaplexIII, fish oil, vitamin E, and an egg yolk every day. The combination of all of these supplements is working very well.

    I give the injections sub-q.

    Hey Jeff,

    What's the Phycox and Ligaplex for? I use all the rest.

    Phycox http://www.phycox.com/english/for-dogs.html contains antiinflammatory phycocyanin here's a link to a NIH study on phycocyanin http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19299804

    Ligaplex II is a musculoskeletal supplement that Regina Schwabe recommended for Sinner.
