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.

    Know the difference

    By Albertspack on Apr 8, 2021

    Chewy was efficient and quick in getting our dog’s meds to us. Unfortunately, while I thought I had ordered the ‘chewable’ version, the pill form arrived. Now it’s a bit of a struggle to convince Walter to take his pill...

    Senior Dog Pain

    Seems to help

    By ChloeMom on Jul 6, 2020

    I’ve been adding a half tablet with my 13 yo dachshund’s food twice a day for a couple weeks. She’s not a complainer so it’s hard to tell if they are helping her. Heidi is not too active as a senior but still enjoys short walks. If there’s a chance the Rimadyl is helping her then I’ll continue giving them to her. She gets a half table twice a day and the tablets are quite small. I gave four stars instead of five as it would have been nice it the tablets would have been cut in half like our vet does.

    Thank you Chewy

    By Marc on Aug 29, 2020

    Same script as the vet pharmacy, with a slightly cheaper price, convince of not having to drive 20 miles to obtain, and CHEWY and the staff are really helpful and pleasant to deal with

    Received as ordered

    By Molly on Oct 8, 2020

    Received as ordered. The only thing is I had to cut them in half. When purchased at the Vet they cut them for me.
