Does rimadyl cause cancer and can a dog have a reaction to a cortisone shot? Like not being able to walk?

Dear Gail,

Cancer is not listed as a potential side effect of Rimadyl. It does have a long list of side effects and is more often seen in certain breeds such as Labrador retrievers. Some dogs can have a negative reaction to a cortisone injection. What type of problem does your dog have? What breed is your dog?

Best regards,

Dr. Char
