Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that provides lubrication and cushioning for joints, bones and other tissues. As dogs age, their bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, which can lead to joint pain and stiffness.

Hyaluronic Acid injections can be used to treat arthritic conditions in dogs. These injections are administered directly into the joint or surrounding tissue. The amount of hyaluronic acid injected depends on the size of your dog and the severity of its condition.

Side effects can include swelling around the injection site and redness or inflammation at the injection site following administration of the medication.
