Deramaxx or something comparable.

My 9 year old Cboy has osteoarthritis in his back hips and deramaxx gave him an incredible amount of relief. He was taking half of a 100mg tablet every half hour. Due to the loss of my job I am unable to afford the vet bills as my vet wants him to come in atleast every other month for an exam. I have a large furrari crate or a large body harness to trade if anyone has anything comparable with deramaxx to help me get Cboy back on his paws literraly.

Would your vet be okay with Tramadol - it won't help with the inflammatory part of the arthritis, but would provide pain relief and might not need as careful monitoring (I am guessing blood work). Tramadol You can sometimes get Tramadol here it is:
Quote:
  • A human product called “Ultracet®” is available. It contains acetaminophen in addition to tramadol. This product is NOT safe for cats at any dose and requires specific veterinary instruction if it is to be used in dogs. Never use your own medication on your pet.
from a human pharmacy for less money. DO NOT USE THE ULTRACET - ULTRAM http://www.drugs.com/ultram.html is the one to ask for an Rx for: You also have to keep an eye on values, but seems less so??? You can buy milk thistle for cheap at a place like Walmart and that helps out with the liver. Tramadol seems much less expensive than a NSAID anyway...

Also some people use meloxicam which...wait...I can't remember - anyway, it's the human form of a veterinary NSAID, so you still need to monitor liver/kidney values etc. Someone will come along and answer this and not sure if it is the same problem.

Walgreens and other places often have savings cards. Will keep thinking and come back if more comes to mind. It might be workable...

I think it might be illegal to trade prescription meds. You should try selling your items instead and getting the prescription from your vet. if your vet won't work with you, find a different one.

You said that he was taking it every half hour? Did you mean to say twice a day?
