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.
Galliprant is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) specifically formulated for dogs. It is a safe and effective option to manage pain associated with osteoarthritis, making it an excellent choice for dogs of all ages. Whether your pet is a playful pup or a seasoned senior, Galliprant can help enhance their overall well-being and provide much-needed comfort.
Before you buy Galliprant for your pet, it is important that you talk to your veterinarian about its effectiveness and potential side effects.
Before starting any new medication, it is crucial to consult your veterinarian. They will assess your pet's specific condition, weight, and overall health to determine the appropriate dosage.
Administer Galliprant dosage orally to dogs once a day. Galliprant tablets come in various strengths (20 mg, 60 mg, and 100 mg) to accommodate different pet sizes.
Most dogs will readily accept the pork-flavored tablets.
If your dog refuses the medication, try hiding it in wet food, a pill pocket, or a piece of cheese.
If these methods fail, consult your veterinarian for additional guidance.

The safety of Galliprant in pregnant or lactating animals has not been established. Inform your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or nursing to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.

While Galliprant for dogs is generally well-tolerated by most dogs and cats, some pets may experience side effects. It's important to be aware of potential adverse reactions and contact your veterinarian if you observe any of the following: vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite and lethargy.
