Indications for use

  • Rimadyl is indicated for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries in dogs.
  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful condition caused by “wear and tear” of cartilage and other parts of the joints that may result in the following changes or signs in your dog:
    • Limping or lameness
    • Decreased activity or exercise (reluctance to stand, climb stairs, jump or run, or difficulty in performing these activities)
    • Stiffness or decreased movement of joints
  • To control surgical pain (e.g. for surgeries such as spays, ear procedures or orthopedic repairs) your veterinarian may administer Rimadyl before the procedure and recommend that your dog be treated for several days after going home.

Administration and dosage

  • Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response. The recommended dosage for oral administration to dogs is 2 mg/lb (4.4 mg/kg) of body weight daily.
  • The total daily dose may be administered as 2 mg/lb of body weight once daily or divided and administered as 1 mg/lb (2.2 mg/kg) twice daily.
  • For the control of postoperative pain, administer approximately 2 hours before the procedure.
  • Rimadyl tablets are scored and dosage should be calculated in half-tablet increments. Tablets can be halved by placing the tablet on a hard surface and pressing down on both sides of the score.
  • Rimadyl chewable tablets are palatable and willingly consumed by most dogs when offered by the owner. Therefore, they may be fed by hand or placed on food. Care should be taken to ensure that the dog consumes the complete dose.
  • The recommended dosage for subcutaneous administration to dogs is 2 mg/lb (4.4 mg/kg) of body weight daily. The total daily dose may be administered as either 2 mg/lb of body weight once daily or divided and administered as 1 mg/lb (2.2 mg/kg) twice daily. For control of post-operative pain, administer approximately 2 hours before the procedure.
  • Always provide Client Information Sheet with prescription. Carefully consider the potential benefits and risk and other treatment options before deciding to use Rimadyl.
