• Both my dogs go to bandfield. Cody my 10 year old golden is prescribed rimadyl 100mg, takes 1/5 every 12 hours. When I was feeding Cody and Chase by accident I gave Chase codys food with the pill in it. Should I be worried?

    Hi Karen,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. An NSAID like Rimadyl can potentially cause some issues. This will depend on a few different factors including the dose given, the size and weight of your pet, and the overall health of the pet. Your vet knows your pets and they can give you the best advice on if this is something to be concerned about or not.
