Bubba has now had 5 Adequan shots.
How is he doing?
This was taken this morning. Bubba comes out with the rest of the gang at meal time, and actually eats some with the community. He then retires to Jen’s bedroom where he’s fed separately from the others to ensure he’s not stressed and getting plenty to eat.
Bubba is not fearful as he was before Adequan. He’s more relaxed, and less argumentative with the other kitties.
And to think he’s got 3 more initial shots to go! Dare I hope for yet more improvement?
A reminder that Adequan is not approved for use in cats. This is an off-label use of the medication. But more vets are choosing to use Adequan with cats suffering from arthritis, especially since there are so few pain medication options available.
And at approximately $25 a shot, it’s a reasonably affordable option.
Adequan is administered as two shots per week for 4 weeks, with a booster shot once per month. It was originally developed as a drug for horses, and then approved for use in dogs.
I just wish the drug was approved for use in humans.
