Control your dog's arthritis pain with Rimadyl Caplets
Rimadyl (Carprofen) 25 mg, 180 Caplets effectively relieves pain and inflammation in dogs for up to 24 hours with just a single dose. The active drug in Rimadyl, carprofen, is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that belongs to the same class ibuprofen, naproxen, and ketoprofen. However, unlike aspirin and ibuprofen, Rimadyl is FDA-approved for use in dogs. This medication is the number one NSAID prescribed to treat canine pain in the world.
Rimadyl Caplets inhibit COX-2, a chemical that is part of the body's process responsible for inflammation. Even though there is no cure for osteoarthritis in dogs, treating your pet with Rimadyl can ease their discomfort, restore activity levels, and maintain their quality of life. If your dog has trouble taking the caplets, liver-flavored chewable tablets are also available.
For oral administration, the manufacturer's recommended dose is 2 mg of Rimadyl per 1 lb of bodyweight (4.4 mg/kg) given every 24 hours. However, the dose can be divided and given every 12 hours as 1 mg per 1 lb of bodyweight (2.2 mg/kg). However, always follow your veterinarian's specific instructions for administering Rimadyl to your pet.
Remember, Rimadyl Caplets and Chewable Tablets are for use in dogs only. Do not administer to cats or other animals. Keep out of reach of pets and children.
