What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    rimadyl for dogs

    Rimadyl is a medication that is used by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian to alleviate pain and inflammation caused by osteoarthritis in dogs. It's also used to manage pain after soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries in dogs.

    Rimadyl for dogs is available in caplets and chewable tablets.


    Read the information that comes with your dog's prescription. The Rimadyl dosage is based on the weight of the dog. The recommended dose is 2 mg per pound of body weight once daily or 1 mg per pound of body weight twice daily. Consult with your veterinarian on giving the correct dose to your dog.


    Rimadyl contains carprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).


    Do not give Rimadyl to your dog if your dog is allergic to carprofen.
