          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!
