    Huge Improvement

    By Amazing on Oct 23, 2021

    Both of my Rhodesian Ridgebacks have back pain and have been taking Methocarbamol with amazing results. The difference has been significant and I am grateful for this medication because my dogs are able to run and play again without dealing with spasms and pain after. My female Ridgeback experienced spasms so violently that when she would lay down after playing, she would shake a California king bed with myself, her and my other 65 pound Ridgeback on it. It would absolutely break my heart to see and not be able to do anything to ease her pain. Since she began taking Methocarbamol, she has had less than a handful of spasms in over 8 months where before the spasms occurred several times a day.

    Makes a big improvement in my dog’s quality of daily life

    By CBdog on May 31, 2021

    My elder statesman (13) has advanced Intervertebral Disc Disease with several herniated discs. Methocarbamol given daily has improved his quality of life and given him more mobility with less frequent and less severe spinal spasms which were causing severe limb weakness.

    I needed the chewable ones because I have arthritis and it is difficult to cut, and grind down these. They would have cost a small fortune. These are more difficult to cut in half with a cutter even so will try to find another source.

    Muscle relaxer

    By Marti on Jul 30, 2019

    Our vet put our 11 yr dachshund on this (along with pain relievers) and it seems to work very well for helping with her back pain. I would suggest this medication to anyone who's dog is having issues with joint/muscle/back pain. It works.

    Very helpful for arthritis

    By Angel on Mar 7, 2019

    My dog has arthritis from an old spinal injury, and combined with her other meds, a low dosage of methocarbamol has been really helpful for her comfort and mobility.
