Rimadyl is a medication used to control pain and inflammation in dogs with the effective active ingredient carprofen. It is administered just once a day for relief and is often used when the pet has undergone surgery or is suffering from injuries and conditions such as arthritis. Rimadyl for dogs works by controlling the hormones and enzymes that can lead to pain and inflammation and can also be used for degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis) and other situations where these properties are helpful.
Rimadyl for dogs comes in a number of formulas — the regular Rimadyl tablets are small white tablets intended to be placed directly into the dog's mouth. These chewable palatable tablets make administration easy for dog owners, flavoured to make them more acceptable to the pet.
Rimadyl granules can be used in horses and ponies to treat pain and inflammation which occurs as a result of musculo-skeletal injury or following surgery. The granules can be given for up to nine days and are normally added to food as a follow-up treatment for an intravenous injection given by the vet.
Some dogs may experience a reaction or intolerance while on Rimadyl. Signs to watch out for include a change in appetite, diarrhoea, or sickness. If your pet shows any symptoms, then a vet should be consulted immediately. Pregnant or nursing dogs should not be given Rimadyl and your vet should be aware of any other medications to rule out the possibility of drug interaction.
Rimadyl is a prescription-only medication and in order to purchase pet medicine online from Viovet, it is necessary to obtain a written pet prescription from a vet. The prescription must be sent with the order before the medication can be supplied.
