Customer Reviews
Rimadyl is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 714.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Helps! Our 11 year old, 100 lb. male golden suddenly started having significant difficulty getting up or even walking. I took him to to vet, they checked him out thoroughly and then prescribed Rimadyl. Within a few days, he was totally back in action. He's still a little cautious maneuvering stairs but gets up and down great now. He thinks he's a puppy again - that's just a golden for you. This medication has helped immensely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Given my Baby new life! This medicine is half the price of the vets!!! My little 17 yr old Shih Tzu was having so much difficulty getting around until I started giving him 1/2 pill 2x daily. Now he is back to following me around the house and scampering around on his own! His whole affect has changed. He's happier, calmer and even his curiosity has come back a little! I guess I really hadn't realized just how much pain he must've been, poor soul. These pills have done miracles and I feel like I have a little of my Baby Bailey back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rimadyl works I have an arthritic dog with bad hips and only 3 legs. This medicine has been very helpful in easing his discomfort. He is 13 and we have lived together since he was a puppy, so I understand his communication techniques and I can tell you that he is peppier happier, and in less pain after using this medicine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1800 Pet Meds & Rimadyl Our 12 year old lab has been on Rimadyl for about 6 months and it does seem to help with the pain in her legs and helps to keep her active. Wanted to say that doing business with 1800 Pet Meds has been awesome. Their customer service is excellent!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works I purchased Rimadyl with a prescription from my Vet due to my Bichon experiencing pain in his hind leg. He is 13 years old and it was obvious that he was in pain. Rimadyl was effective after only a few days and by the end of the week he was back to his active self. I only give him Rimadyl for one week and he is still active. This drug worked for my pet and I will use it as needed for as long as it alleviates his condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Qualify of Life My 105 pound Boxer is 9 years old...Tyson is big boned and tall...He is exercised on a daily basis but has artheritis. Probably would not be able to even walk without Rimadyl. But he runs and plays . He is happy and that's all that matters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well. I have a 10 year old german shepherd who was slowing down a little. The Rimadyl seems to take the edge off. No side effects as of yet. He has been taking it for 4 months now.

can i give my 13 year Lab rimadyl and gabapentin at the same time?any bad issues with interaction?

Asked by: JFL1
Hello, Thanks for your question. Rimadyl and Gabapentin are usually both well tolerated pain medications for dogs. You should have no problem giving them together. You mostly want to avoid other pain medications or antacids. As always, just keep an eye out for any severe side effects or something that seems odd to you and let your veterinarian know right away. Hope this helps. Thanks, PetMeds Intern

What is the best pain reliever for a dog bite?

Asked by: Rusty
Hello, Rimadyl is a NSAID like ibuprofen and naproxen medications for humans that help with pain and inflammation. If you feel that Rimadyl isn't helping with your dog's pain there are other NSAID medications that may help more with pain like meloxicam, Previcox, and others. Tramadol is not a NSAID and is only indicated for moderate to severe pain. Talk to your veterinarian for other options if Rimadyl doesn't seem to help. Hope this helps, Pharmacy Intern

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.
