  • Great for my old gal

    By on

    My 15 year dog is much better after being on this meloxicam. She used to be on the name brand, and it was very expensive. I actually like this generic bottle better, as it is see through, so I know exactly how much is left. I also like the syringe better. Works the same! Wonderful product!!!

  • Meloxicam made a Big Difference!

    By on

    Our 12 year old Labrador had slowed down considerable on our walks. She wouldn't play fetch, which use to be her whole life. Now she walks faster than I can and loves to play fetch. Our first Rhodesian Ridgeback had done well also.

  • Marvelous Medication

    By on

    My George no longer limps first thing in the morning or after naps. As long as he has the medication with food there are no issues. And he readily takes it with no hesitation. It definitely relieves his pain.

  • Generic for metacam

    By on

    It was so nice to find a replacement for expensive metacam to ease my dogs arthritis pain. It is about 40% cheaper and as effective as the named brand product.

  • Who knew Chewy sells meds?

    By on

    Have been purchasing my yorkies long term meds from a vet. They were expensive and the bottle size small. Chewy had the larger size for good price and took care of getting the script from my vet. They were efficient and fast
