Not that great
We have a 14 year old amazing Pittie. She has been struggling with mobility and our vet recommended that we try this instead of Rimadyl. We had to take her off Rimadyl for 7 days before transitioning. Unfortunately, this medicine did little to nothing to help her. We have it a try for a few days beyond the recommended 7 day trial. Now we are waiting 7 more days to go off of this to switch back and have most of a bottle left. Feeling badly for our little girl who’s hurting.
Perfect way to obtain prescription meds for pets!
Chewy has the system down pat. You order the medication, Chewy contacts your Vet's office and it's done. My 17 year old cat is having some issues with arthritis. The vet suggested this and I can already see results. Tiny dose, easily administered in my cat's food...I couldn't be happier.
I ordered the generic form Meloxidryl 32ml. However I received Loxicom as a substitution. I am OK with that but I should have been notified that it was a substitute generic for Meloxicam. Are all generics equal in quality and strength to Metacam?
OK, but product not as pictured
I specifically ordered from this website because the item pictured is exactly the generic brand that works best for my dog. Contrary to what vets, doctors, pharmacists might say, not all generics are the same even if they have the same active ingredient. I did *not* receive what was pictured (was sent Loxicom) and although my 15-year-old pup gets some relief, it's not quite as good as with real "Meloxidyl". Good to have the more intense strength (1.5mg/ml) in a big bottle & administer less, but the Meloxidyl version comes that way too!
Generic Not Brand Name
Make sure to understand the pictured Meloxidyl is not what you get; you get a Generic "Lexicon" product. Note that the description does include definition of "Generic".
Next time I'll read the fine print .
Was very disappointed to find that what I thought I had ordered ( Meloxidyl ), which is what is depicted on Chewy's website was not what I received .. yes, they did send another brand of meloxicam ( Loxicom ) , which has a very watery consistency as compared to Meloxidyl which comes as a thicker oral suspension which for me is easier to administer . I had not read the fine print at the bottom of the product description which states that depending on what is in their stock, you may receive one of three different brands . I don't blame Chewy which I have been more than satisfied with for my failure to see that final statement . I didn't press to return the Loxicom brand when I spoke with the Pharmacist at Chewy but have since reordered the Meloxidyl brand from another pharmacy and will make certain that the next time I order here or elsewhere to read the fine print .
taste seems to have changed
I like the liquid because I can match the does exactly to my dogs changing weight. Usually she likes the taste but this last bottle not so much- I have to hide it in her food.
This has worked great for our 15 yr old Maltese. Split in half does, morning & night ..he has more energy & actually bounces around again.
I want to thank the Chewy rep who went out of her way to make sure my vet responded to the refill for my senior cat. We got Miss Elle's medication quickly w/out missing a dose.
My senior fur baby can walk!
I have a 6 lb mini schnauzer 11 yr old that woke up one day and could barley walk with hind legs. She has arthritis and within a week of taking this medicine at mealtime, my baby girl can now walk with no issues. Now buying the big bottle so I do not run out!
