Managing Joint Health is a Joint Effort

It includes you, your patient and the pet owner working together toward good joint health.

You can work with pet owners by:

  • Educating them on the importance of maintaining healthy joints
  • Encouraging pet owners to observe their pet for signs of arthritis
  • Providing them with the best treatment options
  • Introducing them to Adequan® Canine (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), the only FDA-approved* disease modifying osteoarthritis drug (DMOAD)

Dog owners can work with their dogs by:

  • Knowing how to spot the early signs of canine arthritis
  • Communicating observances to their veterinarian
  • Using Adequan® Canine to slow the disease of arthritis
  • Taking steps to maintain good joint health in your dog

About 20% of all adult dogs in the U.S. suffer from canine arthritis.

Adequan® Canine (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan or PSGAG) should not be used in dogs who are hypersensitive to PSGAG or who have a known or suspected bleeding disorder. It should be used with caution in dogs with renal or hepatic impairment. Possible side effects (pain at injection site, diarrhea and abnormal bleeding) were mild, transient and self-limiting. Safety studies of PSGAG in breeding, pregnant or lactating dogs have not been conducted. Click here for full product information.
