Ive given rimadyl back when it first came out for a hit and run. It was very short term use-- about a week-- My moms dog was put on it recently for pain due to a supposed slipped disc. The idiot vet didnt know about all the problems with rimadyl and when my mom told me Willi was on it I told her I wouldnt give it to him anymore and had her research what rimadyl does. She took him off it that nite and took him to another vet who diagnosed a ruptured disk and Willi was in surgery the next nite. Hes better now BTW.
So yes I have experience with Rimadyl and Bute but not long term experience.
