My vet said that Rimadyl is safe for use in humans and that I could ask my doctor for a prescription. Since it killed my dog, though, do you think this is a good idea?

Answer

Rimadyl was first developed for use in humans, but even if you could take it, please do not. It is not worth the potential risks. There are many safe alternative anti-inflammatory products available, and you can also get many safer NSAIDs from your doctor, or even from your local drugstore.
