I have seen dogs unable to walk actually be able to walk with Adequin - great stuff.

Sorry if this is too much off topic. After a brief (very brief) google search, I can't find very much info on Adequan use in humans. Does anyone know if there have been any human trials? Has it been shown to ineffective in people or to have side-effects?

I’m not sure I know there is something to build your bone up but not sure what they are using.

Sorry, but I must have missed what Lyka's problem is. Would you please enlighten me?

Very glad to know that she is so much better. I know that's a relief to everyone.

Lyka was a very poorly bred GSD, who was then churning out puppies herself for a shoddy BYB. She didn’t receive enough nutrition as a pup and has issues with her hips. She had surgery for a vaginal prolapse that was causing some urine inconsonance issues. She also has a large mammary tumor. During surgery for the prolapse, they were able to remove the tumor and spay her.

The adequan injections are for the arthritis in her hips. She had gotten to the point where I had to support her with a sling for bathroom breaks. She is now a new dog, with a new pain free lease on life.

That would be a good thing to know! I go to the surgeons office on Friday for a follow-up, I’ll definitely ask him and relay what I learn here!

It was developed for race horses, then became used for horses generally, and then dogs. It was first approved in animals in the 1980s but has never been approved for use in people -- maybe there's a different biologic effect or they just couldn't get the data necessary for human drug approval, or maybe they were persuaded not to for business reasons. Who knows!



If you talk to human doctors about it, you'll probably get further using the term "PSGAG" or "polysulfated glycosaminoglycan" rather than the canine brand name.



Research tip: Try searching PubMed. Use the generic term for the drug ("polysulfated glycosaminoglycan")--with quotes. You'll get a list of the relevant research papers that are in the repository of the U.S. National Library of Medicine at NIH:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/...aminoglycan%22

My vet is in her late 50’s, early 60’s if I had to wager. I love her though, she’s never turned down any suggestions I’ve had, as long as her research checks out. I love having a vet go outside the norm for their patients. She also isn’t super pushy with meds, and will work on a holistic approach if that’s what I’m leaning towards, and she has research saying it’s safe. She will tell me outright if I’m crazy, which is good.
