Pain due to arthritis is a common issue in aging pets. Often times an NSAID, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, is recommended to keep pets comfortable. Frequently, this will increase not only mobility, but overall quality of life due to decreased pain.
Rimadyl is our NSAID of choice for canine patients suffering from pain. Rimadyl is FDA approved and was developed specifically for dogs. Many over the counter anti-inflammatories, like aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen, are toxic to dogs. Rimadyl is the # 1 recommended osteoarthritis medication prescribed by veterinarians and has been used on over 24 million dogs!
Zoetis, the makers of Rimadyl, know that alternative products – while potentially lower in cost, do not provide the same relief or benefit to the patient. For this reason they have created the “Rimadyl Rewards” program. With every purchase of Rimadyl, you will earn points that translate into dollar amounts, thus decreasing the total cost to you of this superior product.
The staff of Longwood Veterinary Center will automatically register you into the “Rimadyl Rewards” program. You will receive a Visa Rewards credit card that can be used at your Chadds Ford vet or anywhere! After each purchase, it will automatically reload.
We hope that by implementing this hassle-free service, our pet patients will enjoy more pain free days, and their parents will be able to comfortably afford the best medication for pet care.
