What is Rimadyl for Dogs?

Rimadyl Palpable Tablets

Rimady for Dogs is a medicine for canines suffering from painful inflammation. It is used to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis and post-surgical inflammation and works by inhibiting prostaglandin generation, this in turn reduces pain. By reducing a dog’s pain, its quality of life can dramatically increase. It comes in the form of palatable tablets, and is available in a variety of doses. Rimadyl for Dogs should be taken as directed by your vet. 

After this treatment has reduced inflammation, dog owners should notice a range of improvements such as increased mobility, energy, and willingness to engage in exercise. If your dog is hypersensitive to Carprofen – Rimadyl’s active ingredient – then this product should be avoided.

Rimadyl for dogs very rarely causes the following side effects: vomiting, loss of appetite, kidney failure, apathy, and softening of stools through to diarrhoea. Most of these side effects cease when treatment has been withdrawn. It is best not given to pregnant dogs, or those suffering pre-existing liver or kidney conditions. In most cases side effects will be noticed within the first week of use.
