Hi everyone, my cat Mumu has arthritis in her joints and hips, and has been getting laser and Adequan treatments for a full year. In the last month, she has been laying down a lot more, not walking around as much, even with these treatments. We're gonna keep doing both the laser and Adequan, but I had given her gabapentin as prescribed by her primary vet, and it really didn't make a difference and she was miserable from getting the meds. The physical therapy vet suggested a phytocannabinoid product called Endo Blend or a herb-based, non cannabid product called Agile Joints. I'm honestly not that confident in these kinds of treatments that haven't been studied a lot, and when I tried a pet CBD product a couple of years ago, I saw no difference. I wish she could just get the Metacam NSAIDs that they use in Europe for cats, but her vet really is resistant to trying it because my cat has early kidney disease. Has anyone tried Endo Blend or Agile Joints for their cats, and did you see any difference? Has anyone successfully persuaded their vet in the US to give prescribe Metacam for arthritis pain, and at what dosage?
