Deramaxx Basics

Deramaxx treats pain and inflammation, arthritis, chronic joint pain and stiffness, and pain associated with surgeries.  It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) and is related to other drugs like Celebrex, ibuprofen, aspirin and naproxen. Deramaxx suppresses inflammation and pain by blocking the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals in the body that promote inflammation, pain, fever, and blood clotting. This medication blocks the enzyme responsible for producing pain and inflammation without affecting the function of the kidneys, platelets, and stomach lining.

Deramaxx requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available in 12mg, 25mg, 75mg, and 100mg chewable tablets.

Deramaxx Directions

Give as directed by your veterinarian and follow the instructions printed on the prescription label. Be sure to complete the prescription to ensure a full recovery, even if your pet seems to be improving, unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian. Duration of administration depends on the condition being treated, the response to the medication, and the development of any adverse effects. Give with food to prevent upset stomach. This product is for use in dogs only. During treatment, allow your dog access to plenty of water. In the case of a missed dose of Deramaxx, give it as soon as you remember or wait until it is time to give the next dose.
