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.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.

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.

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.

    Great for hiding in treats

    By Saranap on Nov 15, 2021

    I have a dog that can sniff out pills, so I have to bury them in treats. The caplets are perfect for this. They also break in half if you need to. Chewy's price is great and Zoetis gives a rebate. Not listed on Chewy site. As a long time user of the product due to my dog having arthritis in the rear legs I was already of aware of the rebate. Product is shipped in Pharmacy bottle not one pictured but other than that the same great product.

    Dog doesn't like new yellow, Rimadyl pills

    By Bebe on Nov 15, 2021

    My dog doesn't like the new yellow, oblong Rimadyl pills and they are hard to cut in half. She and I both prefer the brown square pills that were shipped previously. I have to hide these in peanut butter which she may or may not eat. I'd like to go back to the brown, square Rimadyl pills if possible. Thank you.

    Works well for our dog, but more than the generic

    By shaw89 on Oct 12, 2021

    Chewy was out of stock of the generic we usually get for our dog. We got the brand name, but it does cost quite a bit more than the generic. We do not notice a difference in our dog between the brand name and the generic. Save some money and get the generic if it is available. Be sure to allow extra time for prescriptions to be processed, as it often takes several days for orders to be filled and shipped.

    amazing results

    By Youngatheart on Jul 13, 2021

    Our 50 lb. soon to be 12 year old dog was carried into the vet because she could barely walk. We had literally talked on our way there about her options. You have to understand that in every other way she was healthy. Strong heart, great eyesight and hearing plus her body functions were very regular and she had a healthy appetite. Her vet at Integrity animal hospital in Kingsland, Ga. said let's not give up on her yet and prescribed Rimadyl. She was carried back to the car and we gave her a 50 mg. dose when we got home and another 50 mg. dose that evening. Within 48 hours. 2 doses per day, she was jumping into the car and onto the sofa. We do not know the side effects but for right now Our 50 lb. soon to be 12 year old dog was carried into the vet because she could barely walk.

    Great for elderly dog hips

    By Lonnie on Aug 31, 2021

    My dog occasionally cried when going up a stair so this stuff works great, I surround it with cream cheese. If something says 'chewable' for your dog my German shepherds will spit it out. They're took big to get away with hiding in food so I like the smaller pills.

    Excellent product!

    By Cathy on Aug 18, 2021

    We rec’d this RX and it has worked great on her spay- induced urine incontenance . We were told that our rescue German Shepherd dog would need to take the medicine the rest of her life. A small price to play for her confidence, She doesn’t have to wake up with a wet bed and not knowing what happened.

    Love this drug

    By Jmfontana on Sep 5, 2021

    Wonderful for our old husky and for our Italian greyhound with Cushing. It really helps with their pain without sedating them.

    Rimadyl works great for my pup's arthritis! She is able to move well and it even helped with her tooth extraction post-surgery pain.
