Carprofen or Rimadyl for arthritis? Or glucosamine for stiff hips? I am wondering how well it works. It's costly & I know it can cause digestive issues. Right now ours get an aspirin twice a day but the vet suggested switching to the other meds. The price online is not much different than what I can get from the vet. Not sure what our next step is. :(

I have used the Rimadyl in the past. I also gave Glucosamine in pill form or the shot version called adequan. Adequan can be expensive but if you can buy a bottle from your vet and give it yourself it is a little more affordable. When I have used the Rimadyl I only gave it on an as needed basis in the beginning and that kept the cost down a bit not having to fill it as often. When things got bad with my Golden she had to take it everyday towards the end but sometimes the benefits out way the negatives. There also were not as many choices when I had her.
Look at Vetcentric. This place is more reputable then places like petmedsexpress or the others. It was started by vets and they do their best to be cheaper then the other places. They can't always be but generally are.
