Polyglycan

Joint Health Pet Medications

Polyglycan is an injectable pet medication that contains glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid. The components in Polyglycan are essential to protecting joints, cartilage, and synovial fluid.

Polyglycan is a final-stage surgical lavage administered at the end of joint surgery in horses. It supplies glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, and chondroitin to replace synovial fluid lost during the procedure and to promote continuing joint health and function. In addition, although it is not approved for such use by the FDA, many veterinarians prescribe Polyglycan injections for the treatment of arthritis.

Benefits of Polyglycan:

  • Surgical lavage for use at the conclusion of joint surgery
  • Delivers glucosamine, hyaluronic acid, and chondroitin
  • Replaces lost synovial fluid
  • Helps maintain the homeostatic environment of the joint
  • Supports joint recovery, comfort, and function after the procedure
  • Patented, effective formulation
  • Frequently used off-label as an arthritis treatment to help prevent and repair joint degeneration, decrease pain, and increase mobility

Read all label instructions and precautionary statements before use.

Polyglycan is only labeled for use by veterinary surgeons as a postoperative lavage. It is available by prescription for off-label use to treat arthritis. In these instances, use Polyglycan exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian.

Directions:

  1. Inject Polyglycan intra-articularly as the final joint lavage before closing the joint space.
  2. Dosage varies and is determined by the veterinary surgeon.
  3. Off-label dosage and usage varies; follow the specifications of your veterinarian's prescription.

Frequency of Use:

Polyglycan is used once as a final surgical joint lavage. Frequency of off-label administration varies depending on the animal, the severity of the condition, and other factors. Use as prescribed.

Polyglycan contains hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, and chondroitin. These compounds are essential to synovial fluid, cartilage, and overall joint health and function. This injection is made at the conclusion of joint surgery to replace lubricating synovial fluid lost during the procedure and to help in the joint's recovery. These ingredients also help thicken synovial fluid, protect and rebuild cartilage, and otherwise improve joint function in animals with degenerative joint conditions.
