Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rimadyl This really has helped my 13yr old cocker spaniel with his arthritis. I'm Thankful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My mix is about 15 years old. His rear legs and hips were really stiff and he was having issues getting up and sometimes his legs would just give out. Our vet started him on half a tab twice a day. It made a huge difference. He can get up with out help, he can navigate stairs again and doesn't appear to be in so much pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has allow our Newfoundland to move freely again without apparent pain. Even though she is in her senior years, she move independently now wanting to go on walks and play. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This medication helps Buddy quite a lot. I don't give it to him every day, as some days consist of not much more activity other than a visit to the dog park where he just meets & greets the other dogs as they enter. On the days he goes for his walks his discomfort is more apparent so he gets a rimadyl & he relaxes better @ night. The price is quite a bit less through PetMeds than the Vet too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful My female mixed rottweiler is about 13-14 yrs old. I don't know her exact age as she was a rescue. The product was recommended by my vet & helps her hip & leg arthritis.

Does Rimadal have conglusamin in it? How big a dosage for an 80 lb dog?

Asked by: Rita
it depends on the reasoning, once my dog had surgury sh got 75, then she needed it for anti imflamitory and the vet gave us 100 so it depends on the conditoon, you need a perscription anyways so they will tell you also rimadyl is Carprofen, a NSAID

How long can you safely give Rimadyl to your dog?

My 10 year old dachshund has disk problems, when the vet gives her Rimadyl she seems to feel much better.
Asked by: Jennifer73
I have given Rimadyl for a number of months at a time - on my 15 yr. old Toy Poodle, I used for at least 6 months - the amount of dosage is given according to the weight of the dog, I'm sure you can find out the proper dosage for your dog.

Re: Arthritis and possibly joint inflammation

Akita is approximately 16 yrs old. He is starting to limp when walking and when he jumps to the ground, he starts to lose his balance a little bit. I don't want to purchase large quantities of any medication right away as he might not take it at all when he doesn't like the taste. What can you recommend I start with, on a trial basis, or small quantity? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
Try the Rimadryl. I tried the generic and it did not seem to help my dog. The rimadryl on the other hand is amazing.

Rimadyl and SynoviG4

I started out with giving my German Shepherd/Keeshound mix Synovi G4 for stiffness in the rear legs but that was not enough for his discomfort. My vet has now prescribed Rimadyl that seems to be working well. Do I discontinue the Synovi G4?
Asked by: mytmo
No. The Synovi G4 is an excellent supplement for joint support and works quite well in conjunction with Rimadyl.
