Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Disappointed I had an issue with my vet saying I needed to come in before they would fill and 1800 Pet Meds contacted me to let me know, which made it possible to call my vet and fix things. Then her meds got here within 5 days! Which was perfect timing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy puppy Rascal is doing great. He has been on this medication for a while now and he has been doing very well.You have been very helpful since I have been afraid to take him to the veterinarian because of the pandemic. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff has helped my lab mix for several years I’ve been purchasing this for several years now. It’s great stuff. We give her a half pill everyday and it keeps the hip stiffness down quite a bit. Super easy to give in turkey and we notice a huge change with her activity level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Baxter! My 12 year old mixed breed has a problem with his tongue. It may be an oral cancer, it may not. A portion of the side of his tongue is actually missing. He was in serious pain and it was ruining his quality of life. The local vet put him on Rimadyl 25mg for pain, twice a day. Once we realized this was sufficient to relieve his pain, I came to PetMeds for his prescription. We have put him on the generic form of Remadyl, Novox Carprofen, also 25mg twice per day. He is doing well. He once again has a good quality of life, and so long as I can provide him with that, I will enjoy his constant companionship and love! Thank you for helping me keep my boy free from pain!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same I had high hopes that Joey would like the generic (money saving) formulation of Rimadyl. Unfortunately, he does not. The great thing about Rimadyl is I hand it to him and he eats it like a treat. Never a problem! The generic versions.... not so much. He won't eat it voluntarily so I have to either pulverize it and put it in his food (and hope he eats everything) or cut it up and use 10 pcs of lunch meat to get him to eat it. Yes it's less expensive, but the time and effort I have to put in to getting him to eat it is not at all worth the savings. I'll switch back to Rimadyl as soon as these are gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carproven - works great ! 2 yrs ago at age 9, my shepherd dog could barely stand up. Since we started Carproven he is back on his feet. I'm so happy he is still doing well. Placing an order is easy and it arrives quickly in my mailbox. I' m very thankful and have recommended 1-800 Petmeds to all my friends

I just had to put my GSD because of Spinalosis. It happened fast. We were instructed to give 2 100 mg every 12 hours. She is very tired unusual. Will this change with time ? Vet said I could drop night dose if not needed. Advice please.

Asked by: miker
200 mg carprofen given every 12 hours is the dose for a 200 pound dog. Is your GSD that large? Please double check with your veterinarian on the proper dose for your dog.

Can this be given daily for a long time 

Asked by: Alan
Long-term use of prescription NSAIDs is safe for most dogs. However, regardless of which one you use, your vet should check your pet’s liver and kidney function periodically to make sure that no damage has occurred.
