Frequently Asked Questions About Galliprant

Galliprant—a prescription dog arthritis medication—treats pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis. Galliprant is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug—NSAID—that blocks specific inflammatory substances from being produced in your dog’s body, treating the pain exactly where it starts. Unlike other arthritis NSAIDs for dogs, this medication isn’t as hard on the liver or kidneys, making it a great choice for your pet.

Galliprant typically starts easing your pup’s joint pain in 1- to 2-hours, so they’ll be back to feeling more like themselves in no time. However, if Galliprant doesn’t seem to be working quickly or isn’t effective in easing your dog’s arthritis ailments, try one of our other prescription pet arthritis medications.

Galliprant for dogs treats pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis—a chronic and common joint disease that breaks down the cartilage between a dog’s bones, causing them to rub against each other. This can lead to permanent joint damage and inflammation, and can make it harder for your dog to do the things they love—playing fetch, going on walks and being ready for any adventure.

Galliprant does not typically cause seizures in dogs; however, if your pup shows any concerning side effects, be sure to consult your veterinarian immediately.

Because osteoarthritis is a chronic condition, your pup may need to take Galliprant for a long time. The drug is approved for use for extended periods of time, per your veterinarian’s advice, but long-term monitoring is recommended. To protect your pet, use the lowest dose that gives them the most comfort. The typical dose is 0.5- to 1-mg per pound—ask your veterinarian for a Galliprant dosing chart if you need more information.

Your dog might show signs of tiredness after taking this medication. Other Galliprant side effects may include vomiting, diarrhea and decreased appetite. Consult your veterinarian to ensure that using Galliprant for dogs effectively treats your pet’s symptoms and isn’t negatively affecting your pup.
