RIMADYL is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) approved by the FDA for once- or twice-daily dosing to relieve the pain and inflammation in the joints of dogs with arthritis.
Pain medications that help manage arthritis pain in people — like aspirin — can be toxic to dogs. Since 1996, more than 24 million dogs have been successfully treated with RIMADYL, making it the #1 osteoarthritis medication prescribed by veterinarians. In fact, more dogs have been treated with RIMADYL than all other canine NSAIDs combined!
For long term use, Adamstown Veterinary Hospital does require routine bloodwork to monitor the medications effects on the liver. Our veterinarians will make recommendations on how often the bloodwork should be done based on your pet’s medical history. Rimadyl is also covered by our Product Guarantees.
