Heads up on cost of Rimadyl.. (pic)

Mr. Zapper had his annual wellness check yesterday along with a full blood panel. His liver and kidney functions are within the normal range so the Rimadyl hasn't had an adverse effect and it is really making a big difference in his arthritis :))

For #60 100mg Rimadyl at vet 1 = $73.75

For #60 100mg Rimadyl at vet 2 = $129.20

For #60 100mg Rimadyl at Costco = $37.39.

Can you guess where I'm headed this morning ?

We have Chester on Meloxicam which is cheaper than...

rimadyl and works pretty well.  He just had his blood panel done also.  My dr put me on Zegerid for a stomach ulcer and the cost at Costco is 90 pills for $1,068.00.  With insurance the co pay is $275.00   I sure hope it heals quickly!  Glad your guy is feeling good on the Rimadyl.

do you need

a prescription from the vet to get it there at costco?  are you giving him milk thistle for his liver? it will be very helpful we do that for the g's

hugs

Yes Deb, you need a Rx from the vet

I'm not giving him milk thistle because all the tests keep coming back fine. Maybe I should anyway as preventive maintenance but I didn't want to give him anything he didnt really need.
