My 10 yr old Rotweiller has arthritis and suffers hip pain occasionally. I treat him iwth 325mg asprinin which does releive his pain...should I use Rimadyl instead..is it safer?
Also do I need a prescription from my vet to buy that on-line?
Yes, you do need a rx from the vet. The rimadyl is safe and stronger then the aspirin. If your pet does well on the aspirin and is comfortable then I do not see why you would need the rimadyl. You should also consider glucosamine (cosequin) It is safe to give this with aspirin or rimadyl. vetcare
