    We have been using this medication for years with several of our older dogs. The dog that is currently being medicated in a 9yr old American Bulldog that weighs in about 100 lbs (no fat). He thinks he is a much younger fella and is determined to keep up with the others. I stated in the title that he is a junkie...he gets all excited when he hears the bottle being moved and is on me before I can get the chewable out of the bottle. National Pet Pharmacy has saved me a bundle on this medication. I highly recommend both the medication and National Pet Pharmacy!

    We use this twice a day for our dog with a torn joint. Seems to really help her. She loves to get them. Like they are a treat!

        So glad that we finally found Rimadyl. Lucky is our 10+ year old 90lb dog and she's been slowing down over that last year or so. Now that she's on daily Rimadyl, she is now feeling much better and moving more easily and with less discomfort. She's a happy dog once again and we are so grateful!

          My 14 year old pooch loves these chewables. This is a dog who will spit out any pill no matter how you hide it. Really helps him live a normal life with the arthritis in his back legs. National Pet Pharmacy was super quick with the order and their price is the best!
