Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! My ten year old dog has arthritis in left rear leg. Could not endure his normal two block walk. After taking Rimadyl he is much better. He walks on average two blocks twice a day, is more playful: jumping, running, ect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our 11 yr old GSD Our female German Shepherd was having trouble with mobility. She stumbled sometimes and definitely could no longer run. The vet started with one per day which helped, but later prescribed two per day. It's made a huge difference!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have a 14 year old lab/border collie mix. She had hip surgery on both hips before she was 2 years old! Now with severe arthritis Rimadyl 100mgs along with Gabapentin keeps her comfortable. She's been on Rimadyl for 8 years and we tried other products but none worked as well. No liver issues have cropped up so she's healthy.....just up there in age!! Thank you 1800PetMeds for making refills so easy and being so quick to respond and ship. If only all companies had your high level of service.

Q&A

If my prescription is for Rimadyl can I order the generic conversion?

Asked by: Noway30
A generic for Rimadyl may be dispensed as long as the veterinarian does not prohibit generic substitution. Look for phrases on the prescription such as "dispense as written" or "brand medically necessary". If they are not present, a generic version may be dispensed.

My 11 year old Schnauzer/Doxie mix sprained her back. The vet gave her Rimadyl for the pain. She was having spasms and the Rimadyl really have her relief but she sleeps constantly. Is this a normal reaction.

Asked by: Terrieg
Drowsiness is not a common side effect of Rimadyl. It is best to check with your veterinarian. It is possible this may be a side effect of another medication she may be taking for pain.

My dog was prescribed this medication from a vet because she was limping on her front leg. Shes doing much better after being on it for about a month. Once the bottle is gone should I keep getting this or should i only give it to her when she has problems

Asked by: Jackie
This would depend on how severe her condition is and what your doctor recommends. This medication is generally given on a daily basis however your veterinarian my recommend you to dose otherwise.
