Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet for Answers ASAP
Thank you for your question. Are you asking what the pills look like?
yes the manufacturer Phizer?
Rimadyl looks like this with a distinct "R" on the tablet
And yes, it is made by Pfizer animal health
what about generic....cap...something
There are several generics...
This is an example of one---
Here is another
All with the active ingredient carprofen
I need to see the med not the container...anything w/ a B on one side & an A on the other
I'm confused as to what your objective is? Did your dog eat some unidentified pills?
no he did not...I think my vet tried to switch meds because deramaxx isn't available anymore
Oh okay, I understand. Well carprofen is typically a twice daily medication, does he still have you giving this once daily?
Here is a pill for Novox, one of the more common generics of carprofen---
yes...but they say its 100mg of deramaxx in 1/4 1 x a day to = his uaual doseage of 25 mg
sorry for the confusion
So it is Deramaxx then?
This is what the 100mg looks like ----
thats what I am trying to figure out ...if it s IS deramaxx or did they sub. rimadyl or generic because they no longer have the 25mg of deramaxx
Yes - does it look like that pill above? That is a 100mg deramaxx
bingo....thanks guess I don't trust my vet
you have given me peace of mind
So it does not look like that? Hmmm, not sure what you were given then
I would definitely call and find out exactly what you have there then!
This is a 75mg
In case it is that one
they had already 1/4 them they didn't smell like the 25mg. he has had 3-4-days of more lethergy(hes 14) than usual so I became questioning...
Ahh understood. Well I would definitely question the vet of what the are then, especially if they don't look like any of the images I sent you
it may be the 100mg but because they are 1/4 its like a darn puzzle to pc. it together thanks for the info
You are very welcome, yes I could imagine, especially since you have to find four 1/4 pieces that go together
Well good luck, I hope I was able to provide some assistance
