    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

    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.

    BEST bang for your $$

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    This stuff works just as well as the expensive stuff I have been getting at the vet for almost 4 x less! Same drug just Generic. I figure if the generic drugs are ok for humans (I get them all the time) they are OK for our pets and our wallets! You do need a pill splitter if your gonna half them. Tough shell. But that is the ONLY downside I can think of with this medication that is critical in my dog Rocky's arthritis regime. TY!
