What is the pill marked P100
Post a Reply
These were prescribed for my Labrador after he was hit by a car a year ago. He has been on a regular diet of 150 mg of Rimadyl daily for pain. I'm out and the new order won't be here for 2 days. Can I give him these pain killers (marked with P100) until then?

We do not live in the US, Rimadyl is extremely expensive here. At present I administer 25 mg twice a day to our two arthritic geriatic dogs [30 and 40 lbs]. Is there an across-the-counter drugstore substitute that would work as well? If so, what dosage & frequency? Thank you. ## I'm sorry, I am not familiar with veterinary medications. Have you tried asking your vet for a cheaper alternative or other treatment options? ## Rimadyl contains the active ingredient Carprofen - Depending on where in the world you are located, a generic or substituted brand name may be available. So I would suggest trying to find Carprofen or another medication which contains it.

A friend just took a chewable 100mg rimadyl for c as nine use! Should I be worried?Or will she be OK?chewableI am visiting her from out of state and have to return home today! ## Is your friend prescribed these tablets by her doctor?

I see you posted this thread back on Nov 11, 2015 - Have you had a chance to talk with your friend since the incident to find out if she's alright? Thanks for any feedback you might have!

Typical side effects for canines may include nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach irritation. Does anyone have any idea of what this might cost?

white round pill has FD on one side, and either 532 or 552 on the other
2 Replies RSS
What does a RIMADYL tablet look like? After surgery, my dog was given a pill. I just found the bottle but cannot read the label. The white round pill has FD on one side, and either 532 or 552 on the other (pill is split). ## Hello, Maddies Mom! How are you? I'm sorry, but I have no listing for Rimadyl tablets. It is a medication developed specifically for canines, so it isn't listed in the prescription databases, since they only include medications for human use. Have you tried asking the prescribing vet? They should have records of what was prescribed. ## Hi Verwon~ Thank you, I did not realize that the data base did not include pet meds. Have a wonderful weekend.
