Rimadyl is a medication used to control pain in dogs. It is administered just once a day for relief from pain and inflammation and is often used when the pet has undergone surgery or is suffering from conditions such as arthritis. Rimadyl for dogs works by controlling the hormones and enzymes that can lead to pain and inflammation. The active ingredient, carprofen, is effective for relief of pain and inflammation. It is used for degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis) and other situations where these properties are helpful, such as following an injury or after surgical operations.

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. The chewable palatable tablets make administration easy for dog owners and the tablets are 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 9 days, and are normally added to food as a follow-up treatment for an intravenous injection given by the vet.

It may be that some dogs 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 while taking Rimadyl for dogs 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.

Verified Purchase

Our collie cross is 14 but thinks she's 4 and she's getting a bit stiff in the night time. Tried Metacam but it didn't suit her tummy and the vet suggested Rimadyl which is working well...touchwood!

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Rimadyl, including answers from our team.

Vet prescription


Do I need a vet prescription for this

  • VioVet Staff

Yes, we need to receive a copy of your vet's written prescription sent by email, fax or post. This needs to contain full details as required so that we can check with your vet if there are any queries about it. As soon as we have received the order and the prescription, we will send you the Rimadyl. Some vets charge quite a lot for writing out a prescription, others charge very little so it is worth asking.

Kcs bitch 6 yrs old had knee surgery on both knee unsuccessful but in pain started shaking a lot

Marie Miller

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Lancashire, United Kingdom

Was prescribed pain relief not sure if she should go back on them since she's been shaking a lot and limping ?

  • VioVet Staff

The limping and shaking could be caused by pain, so I would give them to her unless she is ill in some other way. If she is off her food, subdued, or vomiting or having diarrhoea then you should not give Rimadyl and she should see a vet. If she is well otherwise, I would try her back on the Rimadyl.

Alternative to Rimadyl

Jennifer Scott

Rimadyl upsets my older GSD. What else can I use?

  • VioVet Staff

Given the age and breed of your dog, I suspect she is going to have some soreness from her hips whatever you do. However, it is possible to help her. First I would try and get her to lose a little weight if she is at all over-weight. This makes a huge difference to dogs with mobility problems. Reduce her food level slightly, or try a diet type of food. Secondly I would encourage her to get up gently and move about a bit, lots of times in the day. Not very much is needed at a time, but regular movement keeps the hips from getting stiff.

I would recommend you give her two medications as well. One would be a nutriceutical such as Seraquin or Cosequin. They do not cause any trouble for the kidneys and are usually easy to digest. The other thing would be a different non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. If Rimadyl upsets her, then you might well find that Previcox or Onsior is safe to use. They are designed to be kinder on the gut lining and kidneys than Rimadyl. They need a prescription though from your vet. You can however just buy the Seraquin or Cosequin from our website.
