Great price for this medicine
Not sure how to review a prescribed drug but this has helped both of my dogs that are on it. They are older dogs dealing with some arthritis and one with hip dysplasia. Both get up and moving with much more ease after stating this.
Entirely Pets Pharmacy does in fact contact your vet to be sure this is actually prescribed for your pet and they do it very quickly. And since my dogs will be on this forever finding a better price than my vet can provide me was imperative and EP came up with the best price.

This medicine has been a lifesaver for my dog, but the price just went up and I don't know how much longer I can do this.

Good medicine, best service!
My 13 yr old Rottie has to have this medication on a daily basis. It's not cheap, but it cost way more from our vet. I was so,pleased to find it thru Entirely Pets pharmacy at such a good price. The service from contacting the vet to filling the script & getting it to me has been flawless. I am very pleased! Thank yo!
