She was given rimadyl...

She was given rimadyl injection as she hurt her leg and can't walk on it. She has been breathing quickly since this all happened

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

Its her patella

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

I'm concerned about the dosage. It was 50 mg/ml and she weighs 22

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about I'm?

7 1/2 year old cockapoo female

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand you would like to double check the Rimadyl dosage for your dog. Is that a correct summary of your question?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Great! I can answer that for you. The maximum dosage for a 22 lb dog is 0.8 mL. The lowest dosage that is therapeutic is 0.4 mL. Does that help answer your question?
