I will be buying this monthly!From UndisclosedComments about Mexiletine (Generic)We were so scared when we e found out our Oscar boy the boxer had a heart condition. Researched all the places to buy this med and VetRx was the least expensive. And now I'm getting awesome promo codes for upcoming months. Our boy will be on this for his lifetime..but thankfully it's controlling his sweet heart...so glad to have found a place that sells it reasonably and easily!
Lifesaving product at a fair priceFrom UndisclosedComments about Mexiletine (Generic)My dog has a heart problem and takes this medicine 3x a day every day. I shopped around and found this to be the best price at this dosage. I LOVE that you guys send me a text when he a refill is due and I can just reply to fill the order (and you even give me a little discount). KEEP DOING THAT! It's fantastic since I sometimes don't have time to sit down and re-order til it'a almost too late. Shipping is always quick with great updates.
Great price and works well for our dog with heart disease!From undisclosedComments about Mexiletine (Generic)Great price and works well. Great service, quick and easy interface on website.

Great product. Great service!From Olympia, WA, USAComments about Mexiletine (Generic)My dog has been diagnosed with Boxer Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy and was prescribed Mexiletine for her heart. Previously I had been purchasing this product through Costco. I went to renew my subscription and the cost dramatically jumped from $35 to $140. I contacted VetRX Direct and their price was almost the same price I had been paying at Costco. I placed my order with VetRX Direct and they responded almost immediately. What a weight off my mind. Thank you RX Direct for making this drug affordable for me to purchase.
So far so goodFrom Los Angeles, CA, USAComments about Mexiletine (Generic)My 7 1/2 yr old English bulldog was recently diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia. After a collapse and a few scary days in the ICU he is stable and doing well now. The cardiologist first put my dog on sotalol a few days later he had another collapse, so now he's on both medications. The cardiologist explained most dogs have pretty severe GI side effects from the mexilitine- diarreah, vomiting and upset stomach. My dog has had zero side effects thus far. He's been on the meds for about a month now and doing great.
