Rated 5 out of 5 Saved my dog's life!
I have a 15 yr old 120 lb golden retriever that is the love of my life. Late last year he began to lose his ability to climb the stairs, and soon after I had to help him stand and encourage him to walk. As I couldn't carry him, I had started to prepare myself for what seemed to be inevitable. I took him to the vet for his annual and asked if anything could be done for him. He put him on Rimadyl - 2 100mg/day. It cost a fortune, but I figured it wouldn't be for long and I could afford it in the short term. Within 24 hrs he was going up the stairs!!! I was shocked, and immediately searched online for better prices. I found it here for less than half of what I was paying at the vet! So now, for what it (used to) cost me for my morning coffee, my old guy is no longer in pain and has regained much of his motion. In addition, it has steadily restored his confidence and general quality of life. It's as if the clock has turned back 5 years. I can't think of a better trade for a cup oof coffee!!!!!

This product is wonderful. It allows my yellow lab to retain his active lifestyle by reducing the joint pain in his hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 It does work
My dalmatian has been on rimadyl since she was 5 years old. She had arthritis early in life since she had been so active. She will be 12 very soon and is still on rimadyl. She has had surgery for torn ligaments in both her back legs, so has a hard time getting up and down and using stairs, althought she can still run outside as good as ever. I can tell the difference when she takes the rimadyl. She still has difficulty getting up and down, but I think it is mostly her leg surgery and the rimadyl has really helped with the arthritis.,

Rated 5 out of 5 I can tell it works
My dog likes the tast of the chewable Rimadyl, and I know when I forget to give my dog her chewable rimadyl because she doesn't come out from under the table. It at least keeps her from getting worse. With an knee injury and old age setting in, my dog doesn't like to move around too much, but with this medication she doesn't mind having to get up.

Rated 5 out of 5 My nearly 15 year old Standard Poodle is almost new again!
My wonderful, irreplaceable Priscilla began to limp and show stiffness about six months ago, especially when getting up and starting to walk. She developed a tremor, became extremely withdrawn, wouldn't play, her tail was always tucked. She acted senile. Could no longer manage the simple step-down into our family room. Her appetite was off. She looked sad. I really thought it was the beginning of the end. One week on Rimadyl and she's a new dog! Playful, sociable again, prancing, eating, managing the stairs, wagging her tail. She's been totally deaf for a year. Had not barked in a year. She's starting to hear sounds, follow commands and bark again. It's music to my ears! Can Rimadyl affect hearing?

Rated 5 out of 5 It makes a huge difference
Our 6yo dog, Rowdy, an 85lb Rottie/Shepard mix is haivng hip problems. We was barely able to make it up our steps, had difficulty getting up from laying down and had a very noticable limp. After being on Rimadyl for three weeks he is moving around the houe much better, limps less and is in much less pain. The Rimadyl really helped.

Rated 5 out of 5 Thank God
My 15 year old german sheppard/rottwieller wouldn't be alive today without this medicine, I would have had to put him down. He still acts like a puppy, but this winter , his hips have really given out on him and he just collapses and can't get backup. Since taking this he is able to get around much better.
If anyone knows of any other medicines/remedies/exercises, that might help, feel free to email me at email@example.com

Rated 5 out of 5 Great medication
The Vet. started my 12.5 year old pointer on this due to arthritis. He hardly limps and is now running around the house and acting like his old self! I am so happy to see my boy doing much better, worth the money to know he feels better.

Rated 5 out of 5 I saw a BIG difference after just 1 day!
My 8 yr old Rott mix has been having pain and stiffness for about a year to the point that she would whine when trying to get up. I took her to a new vet that had me give her Rimadyl chewables for a week. Woah! After just 1 day my dog was playing w/ the kids and getting up w/o any pain and her limp was gone. What a relief to the whole family, considering we were thinking we were going to have to put her to sleep soon because she was in so much pain. 2 days after we ran out of the sample bottle I could see her start limping and having a hard time getting up again. Of course, I could do nothing but let the vet know the Rimadyl worked great and we want to keep her on it. It is expensive, but she is worth it. Our dog takes good care of us, she deserves it.

My dog is 18 years old and I attribute the fact that she is still active to this medication. It is worth the price to know that my dog is comfortable on this medication.

Rated 5 out of 5 Rimadyl eases pain
My dog broke his leg at 3 months old and had a very extensive operation to repair it. Now almost 8 years later he is in pain. Rimadyl has helped him reduce the pain so he can be active again.

Rated 5 out of 5 Makes my 110 yr old dog romp like a youngster
I rated this with a 5 star. My 13 yr old Wolf/Huskey has been on 1 every day in the Summer, 2 every day in the winter. With less pain he uses his hind legs more, which increases his muscle tone. With daily exercise and Rimadyl Chinook is still a slim lively white wolf at over 13. yrs old.

Rated 2 out of 5 Rimadyl for senior dogs
I have a Lab/boxer mix 9 years of age. My veterinarian recommended Rimadyl for her arthritis. She also has a bad liver. I read up on the medication and found... Rimadyl medication should not be used in any dog with kidney, liver, or heart disease. Do not give to dogs that are pregnant or nursing. Found information on...http://entirelypets.stores.yahoo.net/rimadyl2.html. If you have a senior dog you may want also read up on this web site http://www.srdogs.com/Pages/rimadyl.rec.html . I also found some negative information there. I quickly stopped giving my senior dog Rimadyl and switch back to Deramaxx. The reason for the switch in the first place was my veterinarian no longer offers Deramaxx in his office. I just have to order it through this web site with my vets approval. Which I had no problem. The service was great. Shipping was fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 Makes such a difference in Jakes activity level. Thanks!
There is a noticabele difference when Jake is taking Rimadyl and when he is not. It is also easy to give because of the meat flavor chewable.
