I think you could spend your money better on different treatments. If Adequan is not helping and you are giving it that often then you need to consider other options. Ask your vet about gabapentin and CBD oil. I would also consider an NSAID and Galliprant is a newer one with less side effects. Having said that many dogs do well on the older drugs such as Rimadyl or Deramaxx or Metacam and as long as you check bloodwork every so often these drugs can safely give dogs a large amount of pain relief very quickly.
