Rimadyl Tablet is for analgesia and reduction of chronic inflammation, for example in degenerative joint disease of the dog. Rimadyl Palatable Tablets can also be used in the management of post-operative pain in dogs.

Experimental and clinical evidence suggests that for carprofen in the dog gastro-intestinal tract ulceration is rare, and only occurs at dosages well above the therapeutic dose.

For oral administration.An initial dose of 2 to 4 mg carprofen/kg bodyweight/day is recommended to be given as a single dose or in two equally divided doses. Subject to clinical response the dose may be reduced after 7 days to 2 mg carprofen/kg bodyweight/day given as a single daily dose. To extend analgesic and anti-inflammatory cover post operatively, parenteral therapy with Rimadyl Injection may be followed with Rimadyl tablets at 4 mg/kg/day for up to 5 days.Duration of treatment will be dependent upon the response seen. Long term treatment should be under regular veterinary supervision.

The elimination time of NSAIDs, including carprofen, in the cat is longer than in the dog and the therapeutic index is narrower. In the absence of specific data the use of Rimadyl Tablets in the cat is contra-indicated.Do not exceed the stated dose.Do not administer other NSAIDs concurrently or within 24 hours of each other. Do not administer in conjunction with glucocorticoids.Some NSAIDs may be highly bound to plasma proteins and compete with other highly bound drugs, which can lead to toxic effects.Do not use in dogs suffering from cardiac, hepatic or renal disease, where there is a possibility of gastro-intestinal ulceration or bleeding, or where there is evidence of a blood dyscrasia or hypersensitivity to the product. As with other NSAIDs there is a risk of rare renal or idiosyncratic hepatic adverse events.Use in dogs less than 6 weeks of age, or in aged animals, may involve additional risk. If such use cannot be avoided, such dogs may require a reduced dosage and careful clinical management.Avoid use in any dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive dog, as there is a potential risk of increased renal toxicity.Concurrent administration of potential nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided.In the absence of any specific studies in pregnant target bitches, such use is not indicated.NSAIDs can cause inhibition of phagocytosis and hence in the treatment of inflammatory conditions associated with bacterial infection, appropriate concurrent antimicrobial therapy should be instigated.There is no specific antidote for carprofen overdosage but general supportive therapy, as applied to clinical overdosage with NSAIDs should be applied.For animal treatment only.In the event of accidental ingestion of the tablets, seek medical advice and show the doctor what has been taken.Wash hands after handling the product.
