|Rimadyl 100Mg Chewable - 180ct
Rimadyl (carprofen) belongs to the class of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. These drugs suppress pain and inflammation by inhibiting a class of compounds called prostaglandins. Rimadyl is used to control post operative pain as well as for chronic pain management of arthritic conditions. While generally quite safe, Rimadyl may interact with other drugs such as corticosteroids and may need to be avoided in dogs with liver, heart, or gastrointestinal disorders. Side effects may include vomiting, diarrhea, anorexia, and lethargy. Consult with your veterinarian regarding any special considerations when using this medication for your dog.
