This is the best way to get my dogs meds by on 01/20/2021
Love autoship

My little chihuahua has luxating patellas in both legs. Rimadyl helps her run and jump with ease. I get Rimadyl on automatic shipment so my baby has no lapse in getting the joint relief that Rimadyl provides. by on 08/28/2020

Has helped my aging dog's mobility. by on 06/17/2020
Great customer service

They were proactive and called me when my insurance changed but they shipped the product anyway. Thank you, awesome job!n by on 05/05/2020
Fast delivery and reasonable pricing

I have been using Petcare RX for several years and I am very happy with the service, especially now during this time of shelter in place. It is comforting to know I can still get my pups medicine. by on 04/06/2020
Great customer service

I love PetCare Rx. I always get what I need in a timely manner. The few times I've had to call customer service, I talk to a very helpful Human. by on 04/02/2020
Generic Rimadyl

Rimadyl coupled with Dasaquin has been a saving grace for my 13 old lab mix who thinks she is still a puppy. She can now move around without pain. PetPlus is great on delivering. I can afford the generic tablet. I coat it in peanut butter so she gobbles it. The chewable is great but cost more. Tablet generic works great. by on 03/31/2020
Use the "real" stuff!!

I've tried those generics, but nothing works as effectively as the "real deal" (Rimadyl) for my dog. I always see her movement improve when she goes on this drug. Yes, it's pricey, but for our loved one, this is the stuff that works for her! by on 03/03/2020
Best value for the money and always in stock.

A happy pup

This stuff can get issued at the vet for 10 for $50 or 60 for the same price from PetCare; definitely the way to go! by on 11/26/2018

This product was vert effective in bringing comfort to my dog by on 11/01/2018
Rescue Dogs

This always seems to help the rescue dogs after their surgery from spay/neuter by on 10/06/2018

Love the product. Lex feels much better. by on 09/20/2018
Rimadyl 25 mgs

Rimadyl gave my dog her youthful energy back, after arthritis took it away. She is almost 11 and runs through woods, jumping over fallen trees, creeks, etc. like a 2 year old. Petcare RX has been the best price I have found on line or in person. They contact my vet directly and work the entire process out easily without problems. This service is well worth the nominal fee. The medicine comes directly to my house within a week or so. by on 05/30/2018

My boy loves the taste of this medicine (chewables) so it makes it SO much easier to get him to take the medicine he needs. He takes Neurontin with it and the combination is very, very effective. by on 05/08/2018

It's a lifesaver for my senior dog. She has arthritis in front shoulder and without her Rimadly she has trouble getting up. WE have tried other products and they did not help her at all. by on 03/30/2018

Our senior dog has pain and with Rimadyl he is able to move around and play. Getting up and standing have been difficult for him but with the meds, he is doing great! by on 03/11/2018

She loves the taste. no problems taking it. Sems to help by on 02/25/2018
Awesome for Dog

My dog is 10 years old and since she has been on Rimadyl her hips have gotten a lot better. It has helped with her torn ACL as well. She has recovered very well until she gets to excited and well we have to start all over again. Other than that this product works great. by on 02/24/2018
Great Anti-Inflamatory Pain Reliever

I have two older Chihuahuas on this medication. It is very easy to administer since it is chewable, and easily breaks in half. They both think itโ€™s a treat and it really helps with the pain from luxating patellas and arthritis. The price is okay, I signed up for the club (Pet Care Plus) pricing. There is a fee, but it pays for itself since my girls take three to four pills a day between the two of them. I also buy the dasaquin chews which are more affordable being discounted with the club price. by on 02/13/2018

we give this to our senior GS for back and hip pain and it helps ease his pain. by on 01/07/2018

I've been quite happy with the product received. Works well, easy to break in half, and the flavor is good enough that my dog will eat it by itself. by on 12/14/2017
Didn't help

This product made my dog very sick, she completely stop eating, I would not recommend this product by on 11/30/2017
The chewable version makes life easier!

Rimadyl has helped my dog so much with her pain. She is like a new dog when she takes it. The chewable tablets are so easy. She's very picky with all food but will eat these tablets. I started out hiding them in bacon, but she likes them well enough that I don't have to do that anymore. Very satisfied with this product. by on 07/02/2016
Excellent Service!

My dog and I like rimadyl chewables. She likes the taste so no arguments at pill time. It works great for her arthritis. I'm very pleased with this product. by on 06/08/2016
Excellent Pain Reliever

This is my go-to pain reliever for my two Rottweilers. Rimadyl works quickly and does not bother my dogs' stomachs. There are newer drugs or generic versions of Rimadyl, and I've tried some of them. But, nothing compares to Rimadyl for my two! by on 05/12/2016
This product is great for dogs with sore knees.

I saved a lot of money buying products from pet care rx. by on 04/02/2016
This product has helped ease the pain in my dogs hip.

This product has helped ease the pain in my dogs hips. I would highly recommend this product. My dog uses the chewable tablets and loves the flavor. by on 03/28/2016
Great Results !

Our 8 yr old female yellow lab had slowed down over the years. She no longer would play hard with our 3yr old lab. And of course steps had become a problem. Within 3 days... that's 3 pills one each day in her morning meal.We had a different dog! She was up and down the stairs , ruff housing with the 3 yr old lab, and best of all she wants to be pet and hugged again! Can you imagine such joint pain you don't even want to be touched. Thank you Rimadyl you gave use our dog back. by on 02/26/2016

Great for my dog who has arthritis and degenerative joint disease by on 02/02/2016
This product has been great for my dog

I gave this product at the advice of my dog's veternarian. She had been limping due to arthritis in her back leg. After being on it for a few days, she is like a new dog, just like they said she would be. Running, jumping and playing like her old self.This product has been great for my puggle and I would highly recommend it. by on 02/01/2016
It works well and fast.

You can really see the difference in the dogs mobility after starting the medication easily after three days . it's comforting to know that she is not experiencing significant pain that she was prior to starting medication, by on 01/25/2016
This product turned my dog around.

My bulldog Trixi use to suffer but not no more. Great product I'm glad we were able to find it for a reasonable price. by on 01/20/2016
Great so far for my 12 1/2 year old lab. Hoping it works even better as the days go on.

great so far for my 12 1/2 year old lab. Hope it works better every day. He is getting up a lot easier and loves his walks. by on 10/12/2015

Great customer service, best prices & quick delivery by on 09/29/2015
Ease of ordering

Product is a great value vs getting at a vets office. Same quality and effectiveness for our dog. by on 07/21/2015
Awesome service and fast delivery

The service was awesome the product delivery was fast. I will never get meds from a vet again the markup it crazy. I could not afford this product at the vets PetCareRx made it possible for me to help my dog with his arthritis. Thank you PetCareRx and all of your staff members. by on 06/20/2015
Pet Care RX

Thank you for always giving us the best prices for our meds. We have 6 dogs so we have to look around for good deals. by on 05/15/2015
Excellent for long term use

I have a 7 yr old Pekingese who not only had major disc surgery in 2012, but another episode last year. Steroids did not work at all for Baby and she was in terrible pain for weeks.It was very lucky that a special vet was in the office the day I rushed her in and she saw the spasm debilitating Baby. Just with a change in meds - Rimadyl being one of them, lots of crate rest she slowly recovered. I will always have to be careful, but giving her Rimadyl daily since September, she has been pain free. I am forever grateful to my vet and to the makers of this wonderful medication. by on 05/01/2015
Works great

This product is keeping my 15 year old dog going. He has a leg that has been sore since he was young (it had been broken before I got him from the Humane Shelter) and the Rimadyl keeps him going. by on 04/10/2015
the only medicine thatour dog will take without a fight

the chewable makes giving it alot easier, cannot find anything else in chewable by on 04/08/2015
Only get the CHEWABLE version !

It was very difficult to get the pills down the dog's throat; she kept spitting them out. The vet said we'll try the CHEWABLE version. No more problem, the dog loves them and life is now great. by on 01/16/2015
Relieves minor pain but difficult to get dog to eat it

Works well (it seems) but the dogs don't like the taste so we need to find creative ways to get them to chew the pills (cheese, etc.) by on 11/18/2014
Excellent Product for Older Dogs

Rimadyl gives our dog quality of life. Without it he limps and doesn't want to go for a walk. Highly recommend for arthritis. by on 09/07/2014
my senior dogs love this.

I have an 11 year old Lhasa Apso, and a 16 year old Bichon Frise. They both have arthritis, and are on Rimadyl. I notice an improvement in their joints within an hour of dosing them. My 16yr. old, Katie, stops limping & starts running around. Super easy to give, since they love the taste. Only con is price; over $1.00 per tablet. by on 08/23/2014

After serious back surgery in 2005, our miniature dachshund has been on 25 mg of Rimadyl on a daily basis. His liver enzymes have stayed in normal range and he's had no side effects. He's almost 16 years old and doing great, so Rimadyl has been doing its job. by on 08/22/2014

Has helped my dog move better considering his age. by on 08/11/2014
Easy to use

PetCareRx is fast and easy to use. A friend recommended the website to me...I went on, found it very easy and have been using it ever since. If something does happen, the customer service people are very helpful. by on 08/08/2014
costly but good

It is expensive, but it works. I wish there was a generic chewable. by on 08/06/2014
Stops the stiffness of arthritis

My vet recommended this daily for my 7 year old Staffordshire Terrier. She has begun to limp on her back leg due to arthritis. The vet gave me a one week trial to use and it worked immediately. He said it works like Ibuprofen but formulated for dogs. Ibuprofen has serious side effects for dogs and cats. This tablet is chewable so my dog eats it like a treat. After 1 week I ran out and ordered it from PetCare RX which took a few days to receive. My dog went back to the limp without it but after the first day back on in limp-free! The product is still expensive but a reduced price from what the vet could offer. I may switch to the generic in the future but is only available in a capsule form so would not be as convenient to give on a daily basis. by on 06/21/2014

The service is good. This medication really helps my dog. Though Petrx us the least expensive I've found online, it is still a vet expensive medication which concerns me. Should my dog need any other meds in the future, my budget may not allow for this. The discounts do help which I appreciate. by on 05/30/2014
Let my dog walk again

My dog Barney is Beagle mix and is about 75 pounds. So when he started with back leg problems it was heart break for me and big problem for him to get around. We have three steps to the back yard and he could not make it. My husband and I used a dogie sling to help him get up and down. It took about three months and he can walk and get up and down the steps with no problems. With Pet Assure prices the cost was greatly reduced. The Rimadyl was a life saver for Barney who is going on ten years old now.Barney's Human Mom by on 05/09/2014
This product does the job

My dog is 16 years old. He was having a hard time getting to his feet when laying down and walking after he was on his feet. He has been taking Rimadyl for about 6 months and now he plays and romps with our young dog. Take walks and seams to be a much happier dog. by on 04/23/2014
This product is good

The pills seem to be doing Duchess some good and she moves better. by on 04/17/2014

My dog Holly has hip displasia, and is takeing 75mg twice a day,and it seams to ware off quite quickly I think it need's to be stronger and last longer by on 04/09/2014
Affordable quality

Products are affordable and delivered in a timely maner. I have had to contact them in the past and was always treated with respect and my problem was handled very effeciently. Thanks for your quality products and good Customer Service. by on 03/08/2014
Great for older dogs

Our dog was having trouble walking and could no longer get up into the truck. Now she enjoys her walk again and with a little help can jump into her ride. by on 03/04/2014
Helps Our 15 Year Old Pit Bull Mix

While it's evident that our senior male dog is dealing with the discomfort of aging, the rimadyl seems to help ease the pain. He can still climb the stairs at his own pace. by on 03/02/2014
I like it but not in pill form

When I brought rimadyl from my vet I always got the chewable one I didn't have to ask they just gave it to me . When I received my order it was in pill form. I tried it on one of my dogs and it really upset her stomach. So know I have to go get some from my vet. I end up spending twice as much because I was trying to save some money by on 01/07/2014
All my dogs will eat these. Great pain reliever

I have a couple very active dogs that thru the years have been getting a little bit arthritic and slower, this product works great for pain and inflammation relief. Plus all my dogs think its a treat, they love these things, I have no problem feeding them just the way they are, no need for masking the taste. by on 12/19/2013
Try Rimadyl (carprofen)

Rosie is the second dog we have had to go on Rimadyl and it really makes it much easier for them to get around when the apparent arthritis really slows them down. I am sure their comfort level must be much improved too. by on 11/23/2013
works wonders

great product. our Macy can run up and down stairs now. before she started this, she could barely get up once she laid down. she's now like a whole new dog. she is much happier. by on 11/18/2013
Small Dogs

If you dog requires only a 1/4 of the pill it is almost impossible to split into 4 pieces equally. I STRONGLY recommend the chewables, they are easy to divide. by on 10/23/2013
great product

have a 9 yr old golden retriever he now moves like a puppy by on 10/12/2013
This product had good results for my dogs

Sine I have 2 out of 5 dogs on this product, it really helps them a lot. Remarkable difference with my BullDog especially. She doesn't favor her leg anymore since she is on it. Helps the other one with both her knees since she has had surgery & arthritis in both knees. Could this help a human with their arthritis. I have it bad in both knees & so far no medication has given me any relief. by on 10/04/2013
This has been a miracle drug for my almost 18 year old Jack Russel

Several years ago my Jack Russel "Bits", who is almost 18 now, was going downhill fast. We took her to the vet to get her checked out. She was having a real hard time walking and going up and down stairs. Our vet gave us a one week sample of this medication "Rimadyl" and just said to give it a try. We did and it was like a miracle happened!! She started walking fine and became a younger dog! We have had her on it now for several years and we are so very thankful for it!! I tell anyone I know about it that has a dog with joint issues. I really think that if it was not for this medication, we would not have her today. It has allowed her to live a long, happy, comfortable life well into her senior years. by on 09/22/2013
This product works well for athritic pain.

My dog has had positive results taking Rimadyl. She is being able to walk more with less of a limp. I will continue to purchase this as long as I can tell it is doing the job. by on 09/16/2013
great for my dog

My 9 yr old golden has really benefitted from taking Rimadyl. She is generally more active and seems happier most likely due to less pain and inflammation. by on 09/02/2013
Does the Job

I have a 12yr Male Lab who is 120lbs. He has bad front paw arthritis. He gets two 100mg tablets a day and that seems to do the trick. His liver function tests have been normal, and there are no side affects. This seems to keep him good spirits. by on 08/31/2013
Miracle drug!

This medicine has done wonders for my aging pet. He is by nature a very patient, loving dog who has always done well with small/young children. In the last few months he has gotten quite cranky and has growled at my crawling baby. It was making me quite nervous and I brought him to our vet in hopes that it was something we could work with. We both felt he was in pain and trialed him on Rimadyl. It has done wonders. I haven't heard him growl one time since he has been on it and he is back to the loving patient pet that we all know and love. I am so grateful for a second chance with our family pet - we have had him for 7-1/2 years and he is 12 years old. I would have hated to give him up to a different home but would have had to if the medicine didn't help his mood. My kids are safe and my dog is feeling better! by on 08/22/2013
Easy to dispence and works great

I put this pill in my dog's food and he eats it along with his dinner. It definitely has helped pain that he has due to a long-ago broken leg. It keeps him going! by on 08/20/2013
Name brand vs Generic

I would never use generic. They say they are same however I know they are not as effective, not in humans nor our pets. This medicine is very effective and my big mastiff is very selective with what he puts in his mouth and chews. This he enjoys being the chewable. The cost is insane and since there is generic the cost should not be this high at all! by on 08/19/2013
Rimadyl (carprofen)

My eleven year old Lab has lost most use of her hind legs due to knee joint problems. Without the Rimadyl she wouldn't be able to walk even though I assist her now. It pretty much takes all she can do to potty on her own, but she does. I am really grateful that the Rimadyl helps with the pain. by on 08/15/2013
Rimadyl is great!

Rimadyl really relieves our 16 year old golden retrievers arthritis and helps him make it through the day with less pain. He still enjoys his walks and playing with our younger dogs. He looks forward to his pill every morning. by on 08/14/2013
Excellent for pain especially arthritic

Although it seems expensive, it is actually the cheapest site on the web where you can get the Rx. PetCareRx contacts your vet to make sure everything is right and no mistakes were made on the owners perspective. by on 08/11/2013
Great Purchase

Great place to buy pet meds love the auto ship option, that way my dog always has her meds available. I set up for the caplets by mistake and when i called customer service made it real easy to change the rest of the shipments to the chewables instead. Shipping was fast as i have had slow shipping problems from other companies. by on 07/31/2013
Helps my dog stay active

Rimadyl is a good product that I rely on to help relieve my dogs spinal arthritis and mild hip dysplasia. He takes the chewable form and enjoys the taste. Since I have a large breed dog he requires a larger dosage and this product can get expensive, but I do see a difference in his activity level when he is taking Rimadyl vs. when he isn't. by on 07/29/2013
Grest results

This product is wonderful for the relief of my pets aches and pains. It is quick and effective. by on 07/18/2013
Rimadyl has kept our very elderly Golden Retriever still able to climb the stairs into and out of the house.

A wonderful product that has prolonged our dog's life and mobility!! by on 07/15/2013
Chewable Rimadyl

My Newfoundland, Stormy, is 11 years old. Being a giant breed, she dealts with one of the common ailments, arthritis. With the use of Rimadyl she is able to continue hiking; not the 10 miles she use to do in her younger days, but she can still enjoy at least two miles of pain free pleasure. by on 07/15/2013
This medication is like a wonder drug for my dog.

Baby (my dog) suffers with arthritis in the hips. I can always tell when she is hurting because she has trouble walking or getting up. My vet recommended Rimadyl 100 mg for her 57 pound body so I buy the chewable tablet (which she eats like candy) and I cut them in half. Baby is walking and running without pain with half a tablet per day. Some days if she is doing good I skip a couple of days. Baby had her yearly check up and the vet reported that her liver and blood work were doing good. by on 07/14/2013
This product seems to help.

My golden retriever is 13 years old and this product, Rimadyl, seems to help. She still has a hard time getting up, but she used to whine just laying there. She doesn't do that anymore. It is very easy to give and she seems to think of it as a treat. by on 06/30/2013
Rimadyl- The Difference

My 14 yo shepard/huskie mix is on her last legs. Whem I asked my vet if there was anything I could do to help past the fish oil and MSM?GLOUC she told me we could try rimadyl. It has made a big difference. I'm realistic,, at 14, but it's nice to get some more time together and to have it be "Better" time too! by on 10/18/2012
A miacle drug

Our lab, Sierra, was in very bad shape about 5 months ago. We brought her to our Veterinarian and he diagnosed her with hip and back problems. Our Veterinarian believes in doing the best for our pets & explained that Sierra was in pain and was inflamed in her left back region. He spoke about putting her on Rimadyl. All we can say is that it is such a miracle drug! After about two days on it Sierra was like a new dog. Walking, using stairs and running better than she had been doing for years! by on 10/15/2012
Loki LOVES this

Loki will be 12yrs old this December (2012) and he has been taking it for the past 8 months to ease the pain of his Hip Displacia and Arthritis. It has been an amazing help to him. He reminds me to give it to him after his dinner every night! by on 09/21/2012

Rimadyl has worked very well for our 9 year old golden retriever. He has trouble getting up on all fours when lying down. We had been giving him glucosamine for a few years. Rimadyl seems to help him get up and down better. Occasionally he needs help, but overall we have seem improvement. AND it cost less here than through the vet! by on 08/30/2012
fountain of youth

Rimadyl is incredible. Our dog has joint issues and had trouble even standing up. Once she started Rimadyl, she became a young dog again. We can tell she is happy and without pain, thanks to Rimadyl. by on 08/30/2012
Playing Again

I have an 80 lb., 11 year old Golden Retriever that wouldn't play anymore and would cry when she was just trying to sleep at night. Since she has been on Rimadyl she is acting like a puppy again. She chases our daughters 125 lb., 5 year old Tree Walking Coon Hound off "her" deck when he visits. She doesn't cry anymore when she sleeps either, she snores, loudly. She likes the taste too. Love it! by on 08/13/2012
Happy Days

My 10 year old Boxer fell down the stairs after twisting his leg. He could barely walk, but nothing was broken. Our Vet put him on Rimadyl & he's capable of walking up & down stairs again & sometimes can even jump on the bed with me! He still has bad days, but the Rimadyl does help. by on 07/31/2012
Can't live without it

We call Rimadyl "The Happy Pill" in our house. Keeps my 15 year-old German Shepherd going and able to keep moving. I start out with 1 a day and then when pain is under control I put her on a maintenance schedule every two or three days. :) by on 07/22/2012
Happy Again

My 10 year old border collie was flipped backwards off a cliff by a bad dog walker. Nothing was broken but he was sore and limping, with about 4 days of Rimadyl he was happy again. If I miss a dose now, he groans and sort of half limps. I know he still needs it and I try not to miss his dose. Besides he loves it he takes the chewable and thinks it's a treat. by on 04/29/2011
Great for Pain Relief

I would recommend Rimadyl to anyone who's dog is suffering from arthritis pain, it gave our Ridgeback Jake a new lease on life for years. Now we are using it to manage pain for our Border Collie who had a bad knee injury and it really gives her relief. by on 04/19/2011
Love It!

Rimadyl has completely given more quality to my 6 yr ShihTzu. She sufers from Patella Luxation has even had surgery which was successful for only about l yr. She is now her old self again. She loves the chewable. I highly recommend it for any pet with arthritis of other bone discomfort. by on 12/09/2010

PetCareRx is not dependable if you want quick and reliant service. Rimadyl is a great product for reduction of inflamation. by on 08/17/2010
