    Works great for arthritis

    By on

    both of my dogs, 12 and 13 year old border collies, have been on these tablets for years to treat arthritis. They get around great for their ages, and when they occasionally have to stop the meloxicam for short periods to take steroids, they get to the point they can barely walk. But after a few days back on the meloxicam they are running and happy again

    Abbeys comfort

    My older Labrador has a titanium plate in her shoulder from a car accident when she was about a year old. We were told she would develop arthritis from this accident as she aged despite the plate and she has. This medication greatly helps with that and makes her more comfortable

    Great in all ways except for one thing

    By on

    The pills are much cheaper than at my vet and they work every bit as well. My only complaint is I had to buy a pill splitter because they are impossible to do by hand or knife. My dog only needs half a pill. Worth it because of the cost though

    works great

    Our dog is 12.5 years old and has really been having issues with his hips lately. This medicine seems to really be helping. He doesn't seem as achy as he has been.
