What is the most important information I should know about Rimadyl: Rimadyl is a prescription medication that is FDA-approved for use in dogs. Rimadyl is available as 25mg, 75mg, and 100mg Pork Liver flavored chewable, scored tablets. Rimadyl is also available as 25mg, 75mg, and 100mg capsule shaped scored non-chewable tablets (Caplets). The usual total daily dose in dogs is 2mg per pound given as a single daily dose or divided and administered as 1mg per pound twice a day . Contact your veterinarian if your pet has bloody, black, or tarry stools as these symptoms could indicate damage to the stomach or intestines, which could be dangerous. Before giving your pet any prescription or over-the-counter medications, check with your veterinarian or pharmacist.

What is Rimadyl: Rimadyl is a non-steroidal ant-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Rimadyl works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. Rimadyl is used to reduce pain associated with surgery or dental procedures. Rimadyl is also used for the treatment of inflammation and stiffness as a result of conditions such as arthritis or hip dysplasia. Rimadyl may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Rimadyl to my pet: Tell your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to aspirin or any other NSAID; an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach; has liver, or kidney disease; congestive heart failure; fluid retention; bleeding disorders; heart disease; or high blood pressure. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given: Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Rimadyl should be given with food. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Store Rimadyl at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Do not give Rimadyl to cats.

What happens if I miss giving a dose: Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and take the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Rimadyl overdose include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, drowsiness, headache, blurred vision, seizures, panting, little or no urine production, and slow breathing.

What should I avoid while giving Rimadyl to my pet: Many over-the-counter cough, cold, allergy, and pain medicines that contain aspirin or other NSAIDs similar to Rimadyl. Before giving any other prescription or over-the-counter medications, talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist.

What are the possible side effects of Rimadyl: Contact your veterinarian if your pet has bloody, black, or tarry stools, or blood in vomit as these symptoms could indicate serious side effects. If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Rimadyl and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives), muscle cramps, open sores in the mouth, rapid weight gain due to fluid retention, seizures, or abdominal cramping. If your pet experiences any of the following less serious side effects, continue giving Rimadyl and talk to your veterinarian: headache, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea or constipation, depression, fatigue or weakness, or dry mouth. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What other drugs will affect Rimadyl: Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given aspirin; another NSAID such as etodolac, carprofen, or piroxicam; any over-the-counter cough, cold, allergy, or pain medication; warfarin; furosemide; a steroid such as prednisone; insulin; or probenecid. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Rimadyl. Talk to your veterinarian before giving your pet any prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Rimadyl written for health professionals that you may read.

12 yr old Lab My lab was having hard time getting up due to severe arthritis in his hips but after taking this for just a couple of days he is getting up much better, playing and seems to have little if any pain. I highly recommend this therapy he has not had any adverse reactions. 04/08/2011
Great Product Our 9 1/2 yr. old Bernese Mountain Dog no longer could climb our stairs without two-stepping each stair. She no longer jumped on our bed to be petted. Problems getting up and down. After going on this medicine for a week she went up stairs better, still gets up slow, but now she is back to jumping up on our beds. That shows me how much these pills are working for her. I am continuing her treatment. Worth the cost. I thank my Vet for recommending this medication. 04/10/2014
This medication is helping our golden, Abby. She is 9 years old and is able to walk much better. 03/28/2014
This product seems to be working! I have a 7 year old Labrador and he was starting to show signs of arthritis, so the vet put him on Rimadyl and I can see the difference. Especially with the bad weather we have been having in Ohio this year, his arthritis was getting hard to control, so I also called the vet and we put him on Tramadol, until this weather gets out of her and Spring arrives. The snow has taken a toll on a lot of people's pets. The combination of the new medicines seems to be working very well! 03/14/2014
This has been a Godsend! Little Miles is a 20 pounder that is 10 years old. He injured himself in his hindquarters, then healed, only to injure himself again. I think it may have been chasing a squirrel along the fence but I am not really sure. We had to put him under to find out for sure if he had torn his ACL so I had a fatty tumor removed at the same time. Unfortunatly it turned out not to be a fatty tumor but cancer. What a drag! We are on a regimen of rimydal to keep him comfortable for whatever time he has left. It has had a wonderful effect on him! I know he will have setbacks but as long as he is comfortable I am OK with that. He has adapted very well. He gets carried up the stairs and lifted to the sofa or the bed, thank God he is only 20 pounds! I am just going to enjoy him as long as he is enjoying life. 03/06/2014

Answer: 
I'd recommend the Rimadyl at about 1 mg for every pound of weight. So a 75 pound dog can take one 75 mg tablet twice daily.
