My dog responded very, very well to this medication. Without it, she had been in obvious pain and limping badly. By the second days dosage, she was bounding around happily. I am careful to give the lowest dosage she needs (per our vets instruction) due to the med info on Deramaxx. Also, the cost @ Vet Depot was way lower than our Vet.
Since starting Deramaxx, my dog has been able to move freely and be herself again. It is great!
I have had my German wirehaired pointer on Deramaxx since he was 2 years old, when we found out he had hip dysplasia. He has since had one hip replaced, but his other still bothers him. He's a very active dog and a hunting dog in the fall. Without Deramaxx he would not be able to do the things he loves. We monitor his liver to make sure there are no long term effects and, after 9 years, he's still perfectly healthy.
