Rimadyl

Rimadyl contains Carprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine used to treat joint and arthritic pain in dogs. Whilst the most common use is for symptoms associated with degenerative joint disease, it can also be used to relieve joint strains, sprains and other related injuries.

At medicines4pets, we provide a variety of different Rimadyl for dogs in the form of palatable tablets which are very easy to administer. Our Rimadyl tablets are available in 20mg, 50mg and 100mg form.

How does Rimadyl work?

Rimadyl tablets work by targeting the hormones that cause pain and inflammation in dogs by reducing them so your dog is free from joint pain and swelling. Long term use of Rimadyl will continue to improve your dog's arthritis and joint pain, improving their mobility and allowing them to live a happy and active life.

How to use Rimadyl

Rimadyl is administered orally through a palatable tablet and can be given as a single dose once a day, or broken in half and given twice a day. Rimadyl for dogs should be given with food and should be given to dogs only, as it is not suitable for other animals. Always consult your veterinarian on the recommend dose and how long Rimadyl should be given.

Does Rimadyl have any side effects?

Like most medicines, there are some rare side effects which can occur with Rimadyl. The most common side effects associated with NSAID related medicines are irritation of the stomach, kidneys and liver. Contact your veterinarian immediately if you notice any of the following problems; decrease or increase in appetite, sickness and diarrhoea, yellowing of gums and changes in skin condition such as redness, flaky or itchy skin.
