Adequan® I.M. (100 mg/5 mL) for horses is a prescription medication recommended for intramuscular use that is used in the treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint disease (not caused by infections), or joint injury with associated lameness. It restores synovial fluid, stimulates cartilage repair and decreases inflammation and joint pain.
Adequan® I.M. for horses (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan) is the only FDA-approved treatment proven to relieve symptoms of non-infectious degenerative osteoarthritis, to stimulate cartilage repair and reverse the joint disease process. There is no generic version of Adequan® I.M for horses.
Expires January 201. This is an industry-wide issue.

I have been using Adequan on my mare for 10 years. I also use it on older horses to keep them comfortable. Excellent Product.
