Customer Reviews
Rimadyl is rated 4.615720524017467 out of 5 by 687.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it My dog will reject other meds but she loves this one. The medicine also is very effective as she settles down nicely after taking it and does not exhibit any pain symptoms. There are cheaper meds available, but none my dog will take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable diffrrence Jeffrey has been on Rimadyl for two years and it's provided much needed relief from arthritic pain in his legs. In fact once I forgot to give it to him for two days and he became a cripple - could hardly walk, head down in obvious pain. I immediately gave him a dose and within hours he was back to normal. BUT the key is only giving him a 1/4 pill at each meal to minimize liver damage. I never give him a full size pill even though he's 53 pounds. And I believe the smaller dose has prolonged his life while still giving him needed comfort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Prices and Fast Delivery My 14 year old dog Bailey has been on Rimadyl for about a year and it has helped him to be so much more mobile. He has very bad hip arthritis and this medication has really given him a much more active life with it than before we had him on it. We were buying it direct from our vet but 1-800-petmeds is about 30-40% cheaper! Great deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rimadyl My dog has been on this medication. ( only one a day) for a few years and this is a GREAT product! When my vet was no longer going to carry it I went to 1800petmeds.com and continued to buy it from them. Very happy customer and very happy best friend-Bailey! :)

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.
