    DefaultAdequan

    Does anyone have any experience using Adequan injections? I have a 10 year old lab that has had trouble on NSAIDs. I just ordered Adequan. I'm running out of options.

    Thanks

    I use Pentosan which I beleive is similar. Ernie has had sever HD since I adopted him 4 years ago. He is now 8. The Pentosan is brilliant. He has been having it for at least 3 years and until recently has worked very well.

    I've used Adequan on a dog and a horse. The dog had elbow dysplasia and it didn't seem to do much but the vet told me that elbow arthritis is a tough one. It kept the horse from being put down for three years before it finally wasn't keeping up with the arthritis. My brother uses it on one of his Newfs ( hips and elbows) and has been using it for about 8 months. He says its helping quite a bit. I think it depends on the dog and the problem...to bad you have to use the expensive stuff for a number of shots before you know if you're one of the lucky ones. Nobody had any reactions to it if that helps. Good Luck

    I have a lab with severe degenerative joint disease in his hocks - the only worse place to treat is elbows, as you know. I'm averse to NSAIDs for long term use, so I have Charlie on Tramadol - it's not anti-inflammatory, but it manages the pain. Anti-inflammatories typically don't do much for his swollen joints. I went to a rehab clinic for an assessment and tried a couple of their suggestions, including Dasuquin and Trixsyn. Charlie had stopped going up stairs until I started him on these supplements. He now goes up the stairs several times a day. I think it's the combination of both that works for him, added to the pain relief from the Tramadol (which is really inexpensive, especially compared to some of the other options).

    Thanks for the info. For quite some time I've given her 3 Tramadols per day. Unfortunately, she didn't seem to get much relief from it. The Adequan should arrive within the next couple of days. Fingers crossed:-)
