Re: [RC] Adequan ? - Sally Ann

Hi! I don't think Chondroprotec and Adequan are used for the same thing.  Here is a websight about Chondroprotec: http://www.hymed.com/chondrop.htm or http://www.neogen.com/chondroprotec.htm  I believe Chondroprotec is only given out by prescription, and is for outer body wounds. It is supposed to increase the healing process. I have a quarter horse gelding that has artheritis in his hind ankles. He is the love of my life and the only thing that keeps him moving are the regular Adequin shots that he gets. He gets the IM injections. After the fisrt month to almost 2 months I could ride him again. He is almost 17 years old but in my mind much to young to be hindered by artheritis. I've been lucky considering that my dad is also my veterinarian. :) Hope this helps!

O.K. we could really use some help from those who are
in the know. Is Adequan the same as Chondroprotec? I
think the Chondroprotec is the generic form of
Adequan, and if it is, why does the label on the vial
say that it's for topical use? (pressure ulcers,
partial or full thickness wounds ,venous stasis ulcers
,1st & 2nd degree burns ,Trauma injuries ,Surgical
incisions ,Donar sites) Do you need a prescription
from a vet to get it? Where would be the best place to
get a good price for it? My girl friend has a 27 year
old gelding who's starting to get a little stiff in
the hind quarters. He's doing pretty good for being
27 years old, but she wants to do everything in her
power to keep him happy and comfortable. She talked
to her vet, and he said it would be a good idea to put
him on the Adequan, but it's around $60.00 a shot.
Thanks for reading this. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.
Happy Trails
Celeste
