Rimadyl Kills, Please Protect your Dogs!!
In 1997, Pfizer introduced what was to become one of the most prescribed drugs in veterinary medicine, Rimadyl. Rimadyl now accounts for several Adverse Drug Events and death in dogs. Rimadyl (Carprofen) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
If you choose to continue using Rimadyl, please adhere to the following recommendations:
- Do not use with other NSAIDS
- Do not use with corticosteroids e.g. prednisone, prednisolone, dexamethasone
- Have your pet's blood checked regularly for kidney and liver function (note that by the time these tests become abnormal, the level of dysfunction will be very high)
- Do not use in pet with liver or kidney problems.
- Discontinue use at the first sign of toxicity and seek professional help
- Pray really hard
- When your vet prescribes this for your dog,make sure you ask your vet for the client information sheet on this! and Please read all very carefully!! To report a suspected adverse reaction call 1-800-366-5288.
This drug continues to kill dogs everyday!!
