Dog owner survey: Filling knowledge gaps

Canine arthritis can sneak up on even the most savvy pet parents. To help uncover which aspects of arthritis people need to know more about, American Regent Animal Health partnered with Dogster on the Adequan® Canine Osteoarthritis Awareness Study. The pair published an article revealing the results and sharing information to clear up any misunderstandings. A key takeaway: Even if veterinarians are proactively talking about arthritis, pet parents aren’t necessarily receiving the message. Read the article to see what we can learn from each other to catch arthritis earlier and keep more dogs active longer.


Making arthritis a walk in the park

In recognition of May as Arthritis Awareness Month, American Regent Animal Health and Adequan® Canine partnered with the Arthritis Foundation to spread the word about canine arthritis. Against the backdrop of the 2022 “Waggers Welcome” Walk to Cure Arthritis on Long Island, NY, Adequan® Canine produced a video news release to raise awareness about the importance of proactively managing canine arthritis.


Adequan® Canine polysulfated glycosaminoglycan (PSGAG)

Adequan® Canine is recommended for intramuscular injection for the control of signs associated with non-infectious degenerative and/or traumatic arthritis of canine synovial joints.

Adequan® Canine 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. Adverse reactions in clinical studies (transient pain at injection site, transient diarrhea, and abnormal bleeding) were mild and self-limiting. In post approval experience, death has been reported in some cases; vomiting, anorexia, depression/lethargy and diarrhea have also been reported. The safe use of PSGAG in breeding, pregnant or lactating dogs has not been evaluated. Caution: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. For additional safety information, please see full prescribing information.
