WHAT IS RIMADYL
RIMADYL (pronounced “Rim-a-dill”) 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. That’s why we developed RIMADYL (carprofen).
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
If your dog suffers from arthritis, trust RIMADYL to provide relief from the pain and inflammation — so you and your
dog can enjoy spending time together again!

Does Your Dog Have Arthritis?

DID YOU KNOW?
20% of dogs over 1 year of age in the United States are believed to be suffering from
osteoarthritis. However, many dogs with this disease
remain undiagnosed and never get the treatment they need.
Human arthritis medications like aspirin can be toxic to your
dog. Dogs should not be given aspirin because it
can potentially harm joint cartilage and the structure of healthy
joints. Aspirin can also cause gastrointestinal
(GI) and kidney problems.
Osteoarthritis can be treated but cannot be cured — that’s why it’s important for you to continue to treat your
dog’s arthritis even if he or she seems better. As the disease progresses, there can be additional destruction
of cartilage and damage to other parts of the joint, as well as production of extra bone around the joint.
Long-term treatment provides continuous improvement in your dog’s arthritis pain and
mobility, allowing your dog to continue
participating in and enjoying the family activities you love to do together.
