Home / NEWS & MEDIA / RIMADYL K-9 Courage™ Healthcare Program for Retired Military and Police Dogs Meets 2015 Enrollment Goal
Zoetis program now helping 500 retired canine heroes who served us
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Nov. 18, 2015 – Zoetis today announced that its RIMADYL K-9 Courage™ Program has reached its goal of enrolling 500 retired police and military dogs in 2015. Launched in March 2015, the program provides the owner of each dog with $300 on a debit card that can be applied toward any veterinary expenses ranging from wellness visits and vaccines to prescription medications and treats.“We want to thank our partner organizations, the Sage Foundation for Dogs Who Serve and the National Police Dog Foundation (NPFD), as well as veterinarians across the country, who have helped us reach this goal so quickly by spreading the word to their memberships and supporters,” said Steve Leder, senior vice president, Companion Animal and U.S. Distribution at Zoetis. “It is our privilege to give back and to help increase awareness about the medical needs of these very special companions who have given so much to our police and military communities, and our nation.”“These canine officers are remarkable. They work tirelessly their entire careers to protect us and their police handlers,” said Nell Dalton, DVM of the Animal Medical Center in Boise, Idaho, who sees both active and retired police dogs regularly in her practice. “They all have heroic stories. They are loved by and have a deep bond with their handlers. When they are retired, they are adopted by their handlers who become personally responsible for all their care. These canine officers do not receive healthcare benefits. I know firsthand the challenges these heroic dogs face in the line of duty, and they deserve to continue to receive excellent veterinary care. I am thankful that Zoetis is helping to provide this level of care.”Zoetis began accepting applications for the RIMADYL K-9 Courage™ Program in March 2015. With the enrollment of 500 dogs, the program is now at capacity. However, interested owners of retired military and police dogs may sign up to receive updates on future program availability at www.rimadylk9courage.com. The website features stories about some of the heroic dogs currently participating in the program as well as information about how to support the partner organizations, the Sage Foundation for Dogs Who Serve and the National Police Dog Foundation.About RIMADYLRIMADYL® (carprofen) is indicated for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries in dogs. RIMADYL pioneered today’s standards of canine pain management 20 years ago and remains the No. 1 NSAID prescribed by veterinarians. RIMADYL is the most trusted NSAID in terms of overall value and support with more than 24 million dogs treated. Studies have shown that continuous, long-term RIMADYL treatment is safe and provides progressive improvement in pain and mobility for dogs with osteoarthritis.1 ,2
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATIONAs a class, NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney and liver side effects. These are usually mild, but may be serious. Pet owners should discontinue therapy and contact their veterinarian immediately if side effects occur. Evaluation for pre-existing conditions and regular monitoring are recommended for pets on any medication, including RIMADYL. Use with other NSAIDS or corticosteroids should be avoided. For more safety information, see the Full Prescribing Information.
