Composition and form of release
Rimadil P liver-flavored tablets are light brown tablets with the letter “R” embossed on one side and a separating groove on the other side, containing as active substance 100 mg of carprofen and auxiliary components: spray-dried pig liver powder, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, corn starch, confectionery sugar, glucose syrup, gelatin (type A), magnesium stearate and lactose monohydrate.

Pharmacological properties
Rimadil P, which belongs to the group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects.
Carprofen, the active ingredient of Rimadil P, in the arachidonic acid cycle predominantly inhibits cyclooxygenase-II, which is produced in the body in response to the development of inflammation. As a result, the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins is blocked, causing inflammation, swelling and pain.
At therapeutic doses, carprofen has a much weaker effect on cyclooxygenase-I, and therefore has no effect on the synthesis of protective prostaglandins.
Carprofen does not interfere with normal physiological processes in tissues, especially in the stomach, intestines, kidneys and platelets, is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, reaches peak plasma concentrations in 1-3 hours after administration, with a bioavailability of more than 90%.

The half-life in dogs is about 8 hours.

Carprofen is more than 99% bound to plasma proteins. The drug is metabolized in the liver, excreted in the feces (about 80%), as well as in the urine.
