Adequan Canine Sterile Injection (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan) is administered by intramuscular injection for the control of signs associated with non-infectious degenerative and/or traumatic arthritis of canine synovial joints. Adequan Canine contains polysulfated glycosaminoglycan (PSGAG). Polysulfated glycosaminoglycan is characterized as a "disease modifying osteoarthritis drug."
