How long does it take for Adequan to take effect?

My vet showed me how to give my horse his first shot of Adequan today and then I rode him for about an hour afterwards. I was wondering how long it takes Adequan to start working, to my knowledge, he's never been on it before. Thanks!

It actually takes affect pretty quickly. It reaches therapeutic levels in the joint in 2 hours after an IM injection and leads to nearly doubling the synovial fluid in the joint in 48 hours.

Awesome, thanks! My horse has a bone spavin in his right hock and the vet told me to use Adequan until it fused. Hopefully his hocks will stop clicking.
