Is there a human version of Rimadyl?

There are some pet meds that are nothing more than repackaged/alternatively packaged human drugs. Often, the human version is cheaper than the pet version.

Is that the case with Rimadyl? Does anyone know?

1. Let me start with saying

that you should ask your vet. There may be a human version, but rimadyl is strictly made for animals. But it is an NSAID (non-steroid anti inflammatory drug), and there are some of these for humans. I would not know how safe or unsafe these are in dogs. I was on naproxen for a while, and it is an NSAID of a different type than rimadyl. But if the price is prohibitive for rimadyl, I would be surprised that your vet could not help you find another drug that would help. It never hurts to ask.
