Rimadyl Palatable Tablets 100mg

Rimadyl is a square, light brown tablet that's an anti-inflammatory for the treatment of pain and inflammation due to arthritis, orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery in dogs.

Rimadyl is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received.

It is supplied either individually or in packs of 100 tablets. 

The active ingredient in Rimadyl is carprofen. Carprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication which is used to treat pain from inflammation. This can be due to arthritis, joint pain, oesteoarthritis, hip dysplasis and other forms of joint deterioration. It is also used to treat short-term post-operative pain. 

What are the signs of arthritis?
If your dog shows any of these signs, it is best to speak to your Vet to determine if your dog has arthritis:
- No longer greets you at the door
- Stiffness or decreased movement of joints
- Limpness or laming
- Soreness when touched
- Licking affected area

As Rimadyl is a liver flavoured tablet, they are easily consumed by most dogs when offered.

The recommended dose of Rimadyl is 2-4mg of carprofen per kg bodyweight daily. This can be given in one full dose or divided into two equal doses. After 7 days, the dose can be reduced to 2mg per kg bodyweight daily and given as a single dose. Do not exceed the recommended dose.

Always wash hands after handling the medication. Keep out of the reach and sight of children.
