Customer Question
Hello! In a stupid...

Hello! In a stupid error I gave my 70 pound dog one of my 37.5 mg tablets yesterday and today. Is it safe to give her a vet prescribed Rimadyl tablet today for her limping?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No. I am only concerned with the interaction of Paroxetine and Rimadyl.

Hi!

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Yes that is fine

The dosage is 4.0 mg/kg or 2.0 mg/pound once daily

So you could give double that dose safely

Okay?
