So last week took my girl 13/14 yo to get annual senior check up and for xray. She has arthritis and the xrays showed hips are pretty bad also knees. I already give her dasuquin and galliprant. He suggested Adequan so we gave it a shot. Some important info is that she hates the vet. Shes had a tough year and the vet gives her extreme anxiety. So he basically had to do the shot in three increments due to her moving so much. When we got home that Wednesday she was fine she ate and layed down for a bit but when she tried to get up she just couldnt i saw her leg where she was shot in in the air. She looked dazed and sad and did not move or eat until 2:37 am. She walked fine and ate fine at that time. Then on saturday she slept all day moved fine but ate nothing. Which is so strange for her but next day was completely fine. She has been good since then but I am worried about getting the next shot. I have seen people say that after their 3d shot their dogs cant move anymore. I told the vet all this and he had no idea what happened. I am scared to do something that could hurt her but also would love for her to be one of those dogs that thrive on Adequan. Any tips would be of great help.
