What are Customers saying Pros Hi! My name is Big. I am a 13 year old boxer and I have a collapsing disk in my back. It's the very last one at my tail. My mom had x rays on my hips and knees but the Dr. told her it was a disk at my tail and that's why I get up and down slowly. It is painful most days. The Dr. suggested Rimadyl treatment and I have been on it for over a year with great results. I can get up and down just like a pup now. My Golden Retriever was limping and having a hard time going up stairs. Since using Vetrynol Aspirin she is so much better. NO limp and no hesitation about stairs and jumping into the truck. Much improved.
What are Customers saying Cons ...who seemed better for 2 days, then she started seeming sluggish ..."After one day of taking it he started vomiting and had severe diarrhea¿ "...too strong for my dog My little dog only weighs 5lbs."
Vet Recommendations Rimadyl is one of the most common non steroidal anti inflammatory medication used in veterinary medicine. It is one of the few medications that are safe to use in most puppies for pain, fever and inflammation.  It is also commonly used in pain management in most surgical procedures in dogs.  It is also commonly used for long term management of degenerative joint disease and arthritis.  Many years ago many were concerned about the side effects of rimadyl, particularly in certain breeds like Labrador retrievers; however, rimadyl has been the drug with the most safety studies of all of the nonsteroidal prescription anti inflammatory medications. As with other drugs of its class, occasionally digestive and bleeding side effects can occur, as well as rarely liver and/or kidney complications. Before using this drug I always recommend blood work, as well as periodic blood work monitoring when used long term.  I give this product an overall ranking of 4 out of 5. Vetrynol Aspirin product review: In recent years there has been the development of many newer non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs to help manage both acute and chronic pain for a variety of medical conditions from arthritis and spinal problems, to post surgical management of pain. While these newer drugs are often considered somewhat more effective and safer than older drugs like aspirin, they are also much more expensive. In my opinion and experience over many years of veterinary practice, products like vetrin aspirin are often comparably effective to these newer drugs, and I have even found Vetrynol Aspirin to be effective at lower than recommended dosages than the label suggests, as low as 3 to 5 mg per pound once or twice daily as needed. As with any products of the non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug class, I always recommend vet exams and blood work before starting such over the counter medicines. As is also the case with drugs of this class, occasional digestive and less common kidney/liver issues can occur with both short or long term use in very sensitive pets. However at lower dosages and with periodic vet exams both before and when using this product longer term, I have found this product quite effective, especially when used with joint supplements like super joint enhancer from 1800petmeds. I give this product an overall rating of a 4, with an efficacy a 4 and taste/ease of use a 5.
