    Chewy's Pharmacy and this medicine healed my leg

    By Remi on Jan 15, 2021

    I love it that Chewy has a Pharmacy with really loving people who helped get this prescription to me. My Vet ordered it, and it was just what I needed to fix my leg after I ran into a stick on a tree while I was chasing deer. My leg hurt, but after Chewy sent me my medicine, the swelling went down, and I didn't have a fever, and the pain went away. I love Chewy! I love it when my Chewy boxes come to the farm.

    Difficulty Administering

    By Sujo on Jan 17, 2021

    Price was good but giving them to my dog is a pain. Dosage is 1 and a half pill 2x per day but the pills are tiny and not scored so cutting them into 2 pieces for the half dose is very difficult and very inaccurate. I have tried a couple of pill cutters but neither worked well.

    works great

    By Sammy14 on Jan 11, 2021

    I would recommend getting a pill cutter for cutting in half. my dog had to take 1 1/2 and cutting was hard but over all everything else came in great timing.

    Chewy is the best!

    By amanduh525 on Oct 19, 2020

    This medicine is a lot cheaper on chewy than it is at our vet’s office. My dog has a tumor that is always getting infected so he’s on and off this antibiotic a lot. It does a great job at helping his infection go down and I can’t speak highly enough of how quickly chewy gets approval from our vet. Super fast shipping and low cost. Thank you chewy!!!!!!!!

    Poor communication

    By Unwanted on Apr 9, 2020

    I gave a star because I didn't use this item due to delayed delivery. My dog was in bad shape so I had to go to my vet to get an antibiotic.I contacted you by email and requested to cancel the order and cancellation was approved but you still shipped it and still charged my credit card
