My dog has a painful back condition at the moment, he's a gsd 36 - 37kg, he's prescribed norocarp (rimadyl) 50mg twice a day. I think this is quite a light dose, does anyone have an opinion?
be guided by your vet,
it is worked out by mgs(2-4) per kg,usually at a higher rate at first(for a week) then reduced if at all possible,you have to be very careful not to give too much as it can have serious consequences.
Yeah I do understand the seriousness, I've had a gsd overdose on it before (and another allergic to it) - he took a small stroke fortunately he recovered from it ok. I won't be changing any of my vet's instructions, i was just curious to hear from others experience with it.
