Maintaining Your Dog's Health is a Joint Effort

Joint Effort is a partnership between you, your veterinarian and your dog—a partnership designed to promote proper joint health and a better quality of life for all dogs suffering from arthritis.

Your Role In The Joint Effort

You know your dog better than anyone does. You see your dog everyday, and you are the best person to recognize the early signs and risk factors of canine arthritis. That’s why you play such an important role in the Joint Effort.

Know how to spot the early signs of arthritis and the risk factors

  • Observe your dog for signs of arthritis
  • Tell your vet about signs you’ve observed and/or your dog’s behavior changes
  • Follow your veterinarian’s treatment protocol
  • Ask for Adequan® Canine to slow the disease of arthritis
  • Take steps to maintain good joint health
  • Keep your veterinarian updated on your dog’s progress
  • Talk to your veterinarian about other ways to maintain good joint health

Managing joint health is a collaborative process between YOU, YOUR DOG & YOUR VETERINARIAN resulting in a more mobile and active life for your dog.
