$0.57 – $0.85
Novox, or carprofen, treats pain and inflammation due to chronic arthritis, limping, lameness, decreased activity or exercise, stiffness, decreased movement of joints, and pain following surgery. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is related to aspirin and ibuprofen. Like other NSAIDs, this medication works by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals in the body that promote inflammation, pain, and fever.
Novox requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available in three strengths: 25 mg, 75 mg, and 100 mg.
Use as directed by your veterinarian, and follow all instructions printed on the prescription label. Complete the entire prescription, even if your pet seems to be improving, unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian. Give this medication with food to prevent upset stomach.
Store at room temperature, protected from light and moisture.
Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Novox is not intended for human use. It is for use in dogs only; do not use in cats. Do not use in animals that are allergic to carprofen, aspirin, or other NSAIDs. This drug may interact with some other medications. Therefore, inform your veterinarian about any medications your pet may be taking. Use with caution in pets that are pregnant or lactating. This medication can cause stomach ulcers. Notify your veterinarian if your dog suffers from liver disease, kidney disease, or a bleeding disorder. Liver values should be monitored periodically during treatment. If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while giving Novox, contact your veterinarian immediately.
