Description

Canine osteoarthritis (OA) is both a common and chronic condition that many dogs are diagnosed with. Rimadyl is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory prescription medication (NSAID) used to help relieve the pain and inflammation associated with OA, joint abnormalities, and can also help relieve pain from surgery. Over 26 million dogs have been treated with Rimadyl, making it one of the most trusted NSAID prescribed by vets. By giving your dog one or two easy-to-use caplets a day, you can help manage his pain and inflammation, so he can stay active and continue his daily dog duties. This medication is tolerated by most dogs with allergies to meat proteins.

Uses

Rimadyl is indicated for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries in dogs.

Possible Side Effects

Contact your veterinarian if your pet is experiencing bloody, black or tarry stools as this could be an indication of a more serious problem.

Drug & Food Interactions

If your pet is being given aspirin or another NSAID or any an over-the-counter cough, allergy, or pain medication, or any steroid drug, be sure to discuss the possible interactions with your veterinarian. Other drugs not listed may also cause reactions. Discuss all prescribed or over-the-counter medications your pet is taking with your vet.

Precautions

Before taking Rimadyl, discuss with your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to aspirin, any other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), or is lactating or pregnant. Your veterinarian should also be notified if your dog has an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach, liver or kidney disease, congestive heart failure, fluid retention, bleeding disorders, heart disease, or high blood pressure.

Also available in chewable tablets.

FAQ

What Is Rimadyl?

Rimadyl is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) approved by the FDA for once- or twice-daily dosing to relieve the pain and inflammation in the joints of dogs with arthritis.

Did You Know?

  • 20% of dogs over 1 year of age in the United States are believed to be suffering from osteoarthritis. However, many dogs with this disease remain undiagnosed and never get the treatment they need.
  • Human arthritis medications like aspirin can be toxic to your dog. Dogs should not be given aspirin because it can potentially harm joint cartilage and the structure of healthy joints. Aspirin can also cause gastrointestinal (GI) and kidney problems.
  • Osteoarthritis can be treated but cannot be cured — that’s why it’s important for you to continue to treat your dog’s arthritis even if he or she seems better. As the disease progresses, there can be additional destruction of cartilage and damage to other parts of the joint, as well as production of extra bone around the joint.
  • Long-term treatment provides continuous improvement in your dog’s arthritis pain and mobility, allowing your dog to continue participating in and enjoying the family activities you love to do together.

    Make sure to order chewables

    By on

    These are the hard and tiny caplets like a grain of rice. Make sure to order the larger, square chewables if that’s truly what you want. Great medicine aside from that.

    It has really helped my dog.

    By on

    This is the same as the vet prescribed and it makes such a difference in Bentley's quality of life. His pain has diminished and he enjoys going outside again and sniffing around. The price is right as well; cheaper than what the vet prescribed.

    Always happy with the speed of delivery and the quality of products from Chewy. The prices are cheaper than purchasing from our vets office. I recommend Chewy to all my friends.

    Great pain relief

    By on

    Our dog had lost control over his rear leg due to arthritis in his spine. He takes one in the morn and one in the evening and he has regained control of his leg. He has been on this therapy for 7 months. Very effective.

    Rimadyl 25 mg

    By on

    I guess it was my fault but my vet prescribed this for my dog in a chewable tablet and when the chewy order arrived they were caplets. Now it’s a struggle to make sure he takes his meds. Chewable was no problem. Live and learn!

    Keeps my dog moving

    By on

    So glad this is made in pill form. My dog has IBD and can’t do the chewables which are usually pork based.

    This is Great ... my Pomeranian tore his ACL, and had to go to swim therapy for 6 weeks. Our vet. gave Nick these pills for pain, and he ate them right out of my hand. He never takes pills that easy, and you could tell it helped him tremendously. I kept a few on hand, just incase he ever had a need for pain relief.

    Small pill hard to dispense

    By on

    The pill is so tiny it wouldn’t work with Sweetpea’s Rx that called for a quarter pill. No way to cut that small. Rimadyl from Vet was square and easy to quarter. Still love Chewy! Everything else we buy is perfect!
