$1.06 – $1.63
Rimadyl, or carprofen, is a medication for dogs that reduces pain and inflammation due to chronic arthritis or pain. It treats limping, lameness, decreased activity/exercise, stiffness, decreased movement of joints, and pain relief following surgery. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) that is related to aspirin and ibuprofen. Like other NSAIDs, this medication works by preventing the formation of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, pain, and fever.
Rimadyl requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available in liver-flavored chewable tablets and non-chewable caplets.
Use as directed by your veterinarian, and follow all instructions printed on the prescription label. Complete the prescription unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian. Give this medication with food to prevent stomach upset.
Store at room temperature, protected from light and moisture.
Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Rimadyl is not intended for human use. It is for use in dogs only. Do not use this medication in cats. Do not use in animals with known allergies to carprofen, aspirin, or other NSAIDs. Use with caution in pets that are pregnant or lactating. This medication can cause stomach ulcers. Notify your veterinarian if your dog suffers from liver disease, kidney disease, or a bleeding disorder. Liver values need to be monitored periodically throughout treatment. If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while giving this medication, contact your veterinarian immediately.
