Carprofen is prescribed to relieve pain and inflammation caused by arthritis and other joint problems, so you can help your dog maintain her regular activity levels and quality of life. Carprofen may also help to reduce pain associated with surgeries and other painful conditions and works by limiting your dog's production of prostaglandins, which are substances that can trigger inflammation.

My Achilles had to be put down after I ordered this. I called Chewy to see what I should do with the medicine once it arrived. They were incredibly amazing and sensitive towards me and my loss. They had me contact a local shelter and see if they could take the medicine (they could!) And then they refunded my money! And then they sent my family flowers for our loss. Their customer service is above and beyond. I will continue to be loyal to Chewy for all my pets as they are truly pet people. Now, for the Carprofen itself... without this pain medicine my dog could not walk as he had patella alta and was in quite a bit of discomfort.
I’m not sure why this even happens when I get a prescription from my vet that’s good for 30 days and somehow the first time you guys fill it your settings have some kind of default because I will get three different prescriptions in the first month! It’s ridiculous. I’ve gone in a few times and thought that I changed it or added skip A refill or set it to every eight weeks instead of everyone. I certainly didn’t go in and ask to receive these once a week.
The medication received is just what the doctor ordered however the amount of time it took to mail the prescription and receive the medication was extremely long. During that time my pup was in pain waiting for her pain medication. There must be another way to expedite this process. Due to the long time involved I will most likely search for another way to get prescription medications for her.
My girl is 15+ and was beginning to show signs of difficulty getting up and doing the stairs. Our neighbor is a senior animals vet. She advised me to put my girl on this generic Rimadyl. My girl is doing really well, and she goes up and down the stairs dozens of times a day. I see this med as the reason she will be active for another few years.
Our 9-year old German Shephard has Degenerative Myelopathy and was living with increasing pain, hardly able to find a comfortable position for sleeping. This generic carprofen has been transformative for her, she's happily active again. Occasionally she has diarrhea but not too severe. We tried the generic "flavored" tablets here on Chewy and they were not nearly as effective as this tablet - also she didn't eat them so there wasn't any advantage, we still had to give them orally.
Different manufacturer that we expected. The vet gave us brown, beef flavored whereas these are your traditional white pills. Not the biggest deal, but does make it harder to give to your pet. Biggest reason for deduction is the time spent trying to get approval. My vet already approved the items, but it took two calls to get things sorted out. Not ready for prime time - I’ll be sticking with VetSource for now.
It took 10-12 days for the meds to kick in, but there is a remarkable difference in my 11 y/o German Shorthaired Pointer's mobility. Very little-if any-limp. Much longer walks (from 1/2 block in July and August to 1/2 mile now. He's got some energy and playfulness at times...like at the end of a walk.
They're pills, I don't know anything about them but the vet prescribed them for my dog and charged me 72.00 for 28 of them and chewy has them in a bottle of 60 for about 40.00 so there's a significant savings by getting them through chewy
I was really please with my order. Only disappointment was that it came a day later than initially scheduled and too late for us to get before a trip. So, I had to rush to vets and buy enough for the week that we would be gone at 3 x the cost. I will try to do a better job of animating need.
Used this as Rimadyl when it first came on the market for a stiff aging dog. He turned into a puppy practically overnight. Using it now for a dog with a large tumor and also weakness in the hind. Literally overnight tumor started to shrink and dog’s hind became much more comfortable.
