What is Quellin Carprofen Soft Chew - Generic to Rimadyl?

Quellin is the first soft chewable formulation of carprofen (generic form of Rimadyl) which can make giving your pet's pain medication simple and easy. Each chewable is scored for effortless dosing and dogs love the meat flavor, so there's no need to hide the medication inside food or treats. Quellin requires a prescription from your veterinarian.


Dogs (6+ weeks of age)


  • Savory meat flavor and soft chewable tablet dogs take as a treat
  • Chewable tablet is scored for easy dosing
  • Can be given with or without food

How does quellin work?

Quellin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that relieves pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis or recent surgery to improve your dog's mobility. In most dogs, improvement can be seen in a few days.


Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use. Consult a physician in cases of accidental ingestion by humans. For use in dogs only. Do not use in cats. All dogs should undergo a thorough history and physical examination before initiation of NSAID therapy. Appropriate laboratory tests to establish hematological and serum biochemical baseline data prior to, and periodically during, administration of any NSAID should be considered.

What is the most important thing I should know about quellin?

Quellin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to reduce pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis and pain following surgery in dogs. Quellin is a prescription drug for dogs. It is available in a soft chewable tablet and is given to dogs by mouth.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving quellin to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian about any NSAIDs or other medications your pet is currently being given.

How should quellin be given?

Quellin should be given according to your veterinarian's instructions. Your veterinarian will tell you what amount of quellin is right for your dog and how long it should be given. Most dogs will take quellin soft chewable tablets right out of your hand or the soft chewable tablet can be placed in the mouth. quellin may be given with or without food.

What are the potential side effects of quellin?

Quellin, like other drugs, may cause some side effects. Serious but rare side effects have been reported in dogs taking NSAIDs, including quellin. Serious side effects can occur with or without warning and in rare situations result in death. The most common NSAID-related side effects generally involve the stomach (such as bleeding ulcers), and liver or kidney problems. Look for the following side effects that can indicate your dog may be having a problem with quellin or may have another medical problem: decrease or increase in appetite; change in bowel movements (such as diarrhea, or black, tarry or bloody stools); change in behavior (such as decreased or increased activity level, incoordination, seizure or aggression); yellowing of gums, skin, or whites of the eyes (jaundice); change in drinking habits (frequency, amount consumed); change in urination habits (frequency, color, or smell); change in skin (redness, scabs, or scratching). It is important to stop therapy and contact your veterinarian immediately if you think your dog has a medical problem or side effect from quellin therapy. If you have additional questions about possible side effects, talk to your veterinarian.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of quellin?

Give your pet the missed dose of quellin as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume the regular dosing schedule. Do not give your pet a double dose.

What happens if I overdose my pet on quellin?

If you suspect that your pet has received an overdose of quellin, consult your veterinarian or emergency veterinary clinic immediately.

What should I avoid while giving quellin to my pet?

Avoid giving your pet NSAIDs such as aspirin, deracoxib, etodolac, firocoxib, meloxicam, tepoxalin. Also, avoid giving your pet steroids including cortisone, dexamethasone, prednisone, triamcinolone while on quellin.

Quellin should not be given with other NSAIDs (for example, aspirin, deracoxib, etodolac, firocoxib, meloxicam, tepoxalin) or steroids (for example, cortisone, dexamethasone, prednisone, triamcinolone). Tell your veterinarian about all medicines you have given your dog in the past, and any medicines that you are planning to give with quellin.

Customer Reviews
Quellin carprofen - generic to Rimadyl is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works My dog has been on Rimadyl or Quellin ever since his first surgery after being hit by a car. I can see the arthritis in his radiographs, but you would never know it by his behavior. The two meds both seem to work but the Quellin is so much cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westin feels better!!! We were spending a small fortune on Rimadyl for dog's arthritis. Finally asked vet if there was a generic and she told me about this. It works just as good, maybe better!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to give Susie's vet put her on Quellin when she tore her left ACL about a year and a half ago. We were very happy with it and Susie's leg healed nicely without surgery. The Quellin helped with the pain while it healed. Because Susie is an old dog, the vet decided she should stay one it. Now her right stifle is injured and I am so glad we have the Quellin for that. For quite a long time, it was unavailable and we gave her Rimadyl instead. She did well with that, but didn't like it as well. I was so happy to see that Quellin is available again! It's a soft chew and not chalky like the Rimadyl. Easier to break in half, easier to give.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Puppy with elbow dysplasia. I noticed a huge difference in my puppy. His willingness to play, run and overall happiness have gone up dramatically with this product. He's like a whole new puppy. I'm convinced that these soft chews are more easily absorbed and processed than other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truely a life saver. My 15 year old Lab/Rot mix was suddenly mostly immobile. Happening very quickly and could not see her in pain, had already pre-arranged her ending as I could not watch her suffer. The very first day she took, What a new girl,,,14 again with her happy smile..Not a lover of treats ever, she did take this willingly as her eating habits were not well..assuming her time was near..So thankful for this and so thankful for her...Our girl is walking and we are careful of her because she thinks she can do things again, We are careful of no broken bones because of this. She forgets how old she is.

Just curious if this med will crumble if cut. My pug currently takes a quarter of 75mg Rimadyl tablet twice daily. My concern was since it’s a soft chewable, it wouldn’t break evenly. 

Asked by: PugMom
Thanks for your question. These soft chewable tablets are scored down the middle to be easily cut in half. To cut them into quarters may be more challenging, however it should be possible. If you're concerned about crumbling, I'd recommend using a sharp (non-serrated) knife to cut the chewable into quarters.

I am trying Rimadyl for the first time, can I stop giving Rimadyl if he gets a reaction to it. 

Asked by: Lou50
Should your dog have a reaction to carprofen (Rimadyl, Quellin or Novox), definitely stop the medication and consult with your veterinarian for an alternative.

How do I get the prescription to you?

Asked by: Kathleen
The easiest way is to go ahead and order the medication and provide your veterinarian's information. PetMeds will then send a fax to your veterinarian for approval. Your vet then sends the prescription back to PetMeds and your medication ships to you. Your vet may ask for the written script back, so be prepared for that.

Is there an eta for restock on the 100 mg 30 count?

Asked by: Stormson J Dog
Hello, We do not currently have any Quellin in stock. We do however have Novox, which is the same ingredient (Carprofen). These are both the same medication, just different names, and are both generic Rimadyl. The 100mg 30ct bottle of Novox is available. Hope this helps.
