    In response to your question about Adequate in your previous condo...

    Adequate is often used for arthritis.

    Calcitriol (it's vitamin D) is used in cats. However, it's typically prescribed for kidney issues. It's use for kidney problems, at least according to Tanya's CRF site, is often based on where the vet trained. Some vet schools recommend its use and others don't. My vet is pro-Calcitriol.

    Probably auto word prediction changed it.

    I just started using Adequan.I took the little plastic cap off the vial now it wont go back on? It seems unsanitary not to cover it?

    The syringes are Terumo & after the injection a large drop of Adequan stays in the syringe? I tried every which way to squeeze it out & it doesn't come out? I'm not used to using this syringe I can't imagine that every time i use these it's going to waste some of the Adequan?

    Also the needle is so much larger than the insulin Syringe. Is there a way to convert the Ml to Units so I can just use my Insulin syringes?

    "Adequate" was autocorrect for Adequan.

    Call your pharmacy and ask about the conversion. A pharmacist should know. Keep in mind, though, that sometimes you do need a larger gauge needle if the solution is "thicker" since it may not expelled from the syringe easily if it's a thicker material.
