    Rimadyl and Metacam

    Rimadyl and Metacam are nonsteroidal antiinflammatories (NSAIDs) used commonly in veterinary medicine to help with pain and inflammation. Rimadyl comes in both a capsule and chewable form. Metacam is a liquid which helps in administering more accurate doses to smaller patients. Both of these medications are commonly used in arthritic patients, post-operatively, for back pain, or pain due to cancer. These medications can be used short term or long term. It is important to monitor bloodwork in patients on any NSAID for long term use.
