Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable Liberty was struggling to get up and would become frustrated and just give up. Rimadyl has helped her tremendously and gets up without a struggle. She is very active and I saw the difference almost immediately.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Helps for pain with side effects Pros is helps with pain and makes dog sleep more which helps when healing. Does change personality, subdued, didn’t want To go outside almost seemed like a fear. The drug slows down renal, kidney function so only went out a few times a day, we had to lift him together him out. As soon as finished he perked back up, personality back and loved going outside. Other side effects can occur so read up and decide.

My dog weighs 60 lbs and the vet prescribed 75 mg twice a day. Is this too much?

Asked by: Deedee
The recommended dose is 2 mg/lb body weight given once daily or 1 mg/lb given twice daily. The dose your vet prescribed is higher than normal, but consult with your vet to determine if he/she feels your dog's needs require a higher dose or the potential side-effects of the higher dose do not outweigh your dog's needs to be comfortable.
