Rated 5 out of 5 by ECL333 It works!
My dog has had some weakness since she was a pup -- play too hard and comes home limping and trouble getting up the steps. When this happens we give her 1/2 a pill at night. No trouble getting it down with a bit of peanut butter. By morning she is good as new! And at less than 1/2 the price at the Vet, this is a good value too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mona Good to use along with pain meds.
I am using this as prescribed by my Vet. as anti-inflammatory to increase effectiveness of Cancer pain medication, Gabapentin.... Seems to really help.
There has been a minor side effect, stomach upset caused vomiting, but when paired with Famotidine-anti-acid, this was completely resolved. It is expensive, but PetCareRX allows me to afford it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope This product has been very helpful in allowing our dog to have more freedom in movement.
We have been using this product for the past 2 years. It is useful for greater mobility due to arthritis. It appears to decrease joint discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnaM This products works wonders
My dog has severe arthritis and was unable to get around. When we took our dog to the vet we honestly believed we had to put our dog down, but she recommended we try Deramaxx, and after his first dose he was like a whole new dog. My Buddy was walking and running like a puppy. I tell everyone it is a miracle pill for my doggie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by molmom9 It Works!!!
This product has rejuvenated my dog. She now dictates how far we will go during our "doggie walk" time because the pain is GONE. Prior to being prescribed Deramaxx, Molly did not want to go for "doggie walks" at all. She has a new spring in her step!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CxCamp Expensive Canine Anti-inflammatory
I have a big dog (110 lb), 9 1/2 yrs old, and 3 knee surgeries. The Deramaxx helps him get through each day. Problem is, it's very expensive. Our vet is like our doctor, going with the high-$$$ prescriptions. However, much cheaper at PetCareRX vs. the vet's office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ajmcarthur83 Quick to take Effext
We were close to putting our retriever down due to severe arthritis, being none of the pain medications given would even help to ease the level of pain. As a last resort, we tried Deramaxx, and I'm glad we did! Yes, it's a bit on the pricey side, but after being on it for only 1 hour, yes, 1 hour, he was jumping and running like a pup again. And even after being on it for only 2 months so far, there is no sign of him slowing down. He's on 50mg, so we divide the 100mg tablets, but as he's losing weight from 105 lbs to now 83 lbs, we can decrease the dose. Now he's a happy 6 year old and we're a happy a family again.

Rated 5 out of 5 Killed my black lab
My 8-year-old black lab took Deramaxx for 2 days before it killed her. A necropsy report concluded that she died due to gastric hemorrhage as a result of the Deramaxx. Novartis offered to pay us $300 which would help pay for the testing to show that it indeed killed her (our total bill was over $4,000). However, we would need to sign a waiver stating that we could never pursue anything against them. They could have offered us $4,000 and we'd still never sign such a waiver. There was nothing wrong with my lab Pippin. She went in on 4/26/12 (her 8th birthday) because she was limping, she was given a dose of deramaxx at the vet, and she started vomiting blood at 3:00 pm on 4/27/12. Despite multiple blood transfusions, etc. she died at 9:00 that night. She was our baby and we had only wanted to help her so that she wasn't in pain. She is not the "off chance" dog that has a bad reaction. Do a Google search for deramaxx kills and you'll find thousands of stories similar to mine. I'm so sorry Pippin.
