What Dog Owners Are Saying About RIMADYL: Dog Arthritis Treatment


"My dog Toby was in pain for 4 months, and we tried a variety of medications. RIMADYL has allowed him to be pain free for months now and get back to his old self. Just wanted to say thank you for making a product that basically saved his life and gave him the quality of life he deserves."

"My Whippet, Haley, has had chronic neck issues her entire life. Then last year, when she was 13, the situation came to a head. We tried all types of treatments including laser therapy and acupuncture, but nothing provided relief. It got to the point where Haley was having mini-seizures from the pain. The specialist almost guaranteed me that after surgery Haley would be pain free. As I started weaning Haley off of the medications, the symptoms started coming back. I could see her guarding her neck like she did before the surgery. So, after a washout period, I started Haley on RIMADYL and I began to see a marked improvement almost right away. It was difficult and painful to give Haley pills to swallow. Now I just put the RIMADYL tablet in my hand and Haley takes it right away."

"We've used RIMADYL before and it gave our dogs several years of quality life. Our dog Shotoku, a lovely golden retriever, lived until 15, definitely thanks to RIMADYL. Sho's first indication of arthritis was that he could no longer catch his beloved balls and Frisbee without pain - we gave him RIMADYL and he was almost a puppy again. Very much an improvement over our first golden, Nezzer, who was before RIMADYL was available and was in quite a lot of pain the last 3-4 years of his life. Churchill, an English Setter, lived to be 14, and our 10.5 year-old English Setter, Diamond, just started RIMADYL. We expect Di, like Church and Sho, to live a happier life these next few years! When/if the time comes, we won't hesitate to put our cocker, Mandy, now 7, on it as well."

"I just wanted to thank you for creating such an easy online experience to get the $10 check. You make a great product, and the $10 savings is certainly appreciated in today’s economy. RIMADYL is both a great product and a great brand. I highly recommend that our pet-owning friends talk to their vets about prescribing RIMADYL for their dogs, too. Thank you again."

what veterinarians are saying

"It's always rewarding when you can prescribe products that work well and help your patients. RIMADYL has done wonders for our older dog population, dogs that otherwise couldn't jump on and off beds, and in and out of cars. Those dogs started to move again. It's been quite remarkable. I think it's done as much as any medication has in the last 20 years that I've been in practice here. I'm really pleased."

"The impact [of RIMADYL] on my practice has been wonderful. Clients whose dogs have arthritis are thrilled to know there's something for their dogs. It's really nice to have a palliative [medication] that makes these dogs feel better. That's what people want."

"People used to think old age was a disease, but it's not - it's a natural process. Like us, our dogs get older and have aches and pains. But now we can do things to make them feel more comfortable and still lead a productive life. We're breaking down that barrier and that mindset. Senior medicine is coming into its own, and I think RIMADYL has played a big part in it."
