Rimadyl is a LIFE SAVER!!!
Our senior German Shepard has hip dysplasia as most large breeds gets. She was down, limping, and we thought we should put her down. Our amazing vet took blood test to ensure her body could handle it. We started as a maintenance dose 2 a day then decreased to once a day, with other supplements. Our baby's energy came back, her eating and her incredible personality was back. She's still up there (15 years old) however it looks we can have a few more months with our faithful puppy. Thank you Rimadyl for a few more months of this beauty.

Great product
My vet put Mary on a generic version of Rimadyl and since she only takes 1/2 each day I cut the pills in half. The generic brand just crumbled when I cut it and also Mary refused to take it no matter how I tried to disguise. Rimadyl brand cuts in half easily and Mary takes it right out of my hand, no hiding in food. She gets Rimadyl along with CBD oil which makes her able to stay mobile.

Rimadyl is also available as 25 mg, 75 mg, and 100 mg capsule shaped scored non-chewable tablets (Caplets). The usual total daily dose in dogs is 2 mg/lb given as a single daily dose or divided and administered as 1mg per pound twice a day .

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; liver or kidney disease; congestive heart failure; fluid retention; bleeding disorders; heart disease; high blood pressure.
