Veterinarians

Adequan has survived the test of time. The only reason for that is its effect. It’s efficacious. It works. That’s why clients still request Adequan and that’s why I still recommend it.

Robert P. Boswell, DVM
Equine Sports Medicine Group

It’s frustrating that so many animals aren’t getting treated appropriately for the earlier stages of their joint disease. If we’re talking to clients about equine degenerative joint disease, I feel it’s an injustice not to inform them about Adequan. It’s the only FDA-approved PSGAG treatment to physically treat the disease process.”

John J. Hanover, DVM
The Animal Hospital of Gurnee

I use Adequan to provide a quality FDA-approved medical product for my patients. It has proven to be reliable in the management of joint disease in our patient population. We have consistently used Adequan on all of our top athletes.

Rick Mitchell, DVM, MRCVS, Dipl. ACVSMR
Fairfield Equine Associates

When it comes to selecting healthcare products for my patients, I value reliability based on science and clinical observations, safety, and affordability. I’ve been recommending Adequan since it was introduced in the late 1980s, and I choose to stay with Adequan today because these qualities still hold true over 30 years later – now that is a solid track record!

Kathleen M. Anderson, DVM

Diagnosing horses with degenerative joint disease earlier is when we have the opportunity to make a difference. For us, a product that has i.m. administration and FDA-Approval behind it is an easy choice.

Top Riders and Trainers

I want to help my horse in any way I can. Adequan has been a huge benefit to my horse, and that’s a wonderful thing to offer him. He’s an athlete; he works hard. In a tough sport like dressage, or being ridden on the trail as a retiree, I believe Adequan can help my horse.

Katie Jackson
U.S. Para-Equestrian, Dressage

But I think that's my responsibility to the horses. I hope that by making these smart decisions for them, when they are young enough, I can keep them healthy. I can help them with products like Adequan. In general, you have a much healthier, happier athlete who doesn't need to be laid up.

I always do what's best for my horse. I really feel like Adequan has done such a great job in creating a product that keeps these horses going.

We try to do the best we can for the horse in every sort of situation. We started using Adequan at the recommendation of a veterinarian and because it has some real research behind it; just made common sense. We’ve had success with Adequan, so we keep doing what we’ve had success with.

Michael Matz, Distinguished Racehorse Trainer
Former Olympic Equestrian Team Member
Show Jumping Hall of Fame

I was introduced to Adequan, originally, as a therapeutic treatment for a horse with sore joints from DJD. I saw it made a big difference. There have been many cases where all I had to do was Adequan.
