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 . 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.

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.

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 happens if I miss giving a dose of Rimadyl?

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 my pet on Rimadyl?

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.

Rimadyl is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 745.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My 13 year old started Rimadyl the first of October and she is like a new girl....now eager to go on her walks - she plays - it has just been an amazing change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My senior citizen, 4 legged child. Thank goodness for Rimadyl. Without it, my 16 1/2 year old Jack Russell, would be in terrible pain from her arthritis. It helps her to relax from her pain, making her much more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worked for my dog My 110 lb dog could hardly work, the vet put him on 100 mg Remadyl twice a day and Stratford ez-chew joint support w/msm - 2/day. After about a month and a half he is running again, still shows signs of week legs, but he can run. He is now taking one of each a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works quickly and the chewables are taken easily Rimadyl really does help my dog. She has a very loose petella and resultant pain in the rear quarter. With the med after day 2, she was much more playful with some of the pain gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldnt Be happier My pup has been on this medicine for 2 months and it has totally changed him for the better. He suffers from bad hip displasia and is too young for the surgeries. He went from acting like a 10 year old dog back to the 8 month old puppy he is! It’s so nice to see him have relief from the pain

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well My mom rescued Chloe from the local pound and to this day, I don't know who saved whom more. When Chloe started to get aggressive to my two one year old pups, I took her to the vet as it wasn't her usual demeanor. The vet could see by her stance that she was in pain. He put her on Rimadyl 100mg and a pheromone collar (my mom had passed and Chloe was also showing signs of depression) and in 24 hrs she was herself again! Rimadyl and anxiety collar made a huge difference. I also have to compliment PetMeds as the prescription was first denied by vet as their office didn't have Chloe under my name. But PetMeds took care of everything after I called the vet's and cleared up Chloe's chart. They sent me follow up emails and when I spoke with their representative about the denial, he was so kind and helpful. The cost was cut in 1/2 and if the company is anything like their rep, then they are wonderful animal lovers. I've only done 2 other reviews... takes a great product/company to get me to take the time to write a review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best remedy for arthritic pain, have been using it for a while
Date published: 2017-10-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully! My dog has been suffering from arthritis in both back legs since she was a puppy (they said it’s hereditary). This medicine has been a life saver for us. We’ve paid for surgery on both back legs, and don’t want to put her through them again. This makes it easy for her to move with no pain!

Are the caplets free of flavorings? My dog is allergic to beef so flavored medicines are unhealthy for her. Thanks.
