Deramaxx 276 277
Deramaxx My 3 year old Great Pyrenees could not get up, he is 200 lbs so I couldn't do much. The vet had me try Deramaxx. To start he took 2 100mg tablets but after a week we switched to 1 tablet. He can now go outside and move around! The only other option was not a good one! 04/03/2011
Deramaxx Big change in my 7 year old Westie, Mr. Benny. He's still skitish about jumping up on the couch or the bed - but he's jumping down without a hitch, and he's coming up the back stairs perfectly. Thank you Pet-meds! 03/16/2011
Deramaxx This close relative of the human arthritic drug celebrex, which has helped so many suffering human arthritis patients, has really shined in its veterinary use. All nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs on the market to varying degrees block enzymes in our pets bodies involved with pain and inflammation. The deramaxx difference and advantage is that unlike many competitor products, deramaxx does NOT block enzymes that are involved in blood clotting, protection of the stomach lining and kidney function, thus providing an increased balance of safety and efficacy over other products I have seen in practice. Deramaxx specifically targets the source of osteoarthritis inflammation and pain with ONE chewable tablet controlling inflammation for a full 24 hours. This FDA approved drug has been prescribed to over one million dogs over the past 2 years. One study with one of its major competitors, showed that lame dogs put more weight on the leg quicker and for longer periods than another drug of its class commonly prescribed. As with any individual drug of the nonsteroidal anti inflammatory class, there can be very rare reactions involving the digestive tract, kidneys or liver. I find that when we do complete blood and urine workups on pets before starting on this medication, that we are able to prescribe drugs like this more safely. For those pets who need deramaxx long term, blood work should be done every 4-6 months in my opinion. I often find that when using the wonderful neutraceuticals from 1800petmeds for arthritis like super joint enhancer, proanthozone, and super joint omega that I am able to use much lower doses of deramaxx in controlling chronic degenerative joint disease and arthritis in many of our aging dogs,, even only a dose or two a week in some cases, once the neutraceuticals take effect over several weeks. For some of the major orthopedic procedures done on dogs today, including fracture repair, joint reconstruction, and the ever increasing number of cruciate surgeries being done on dogs, that deramaxx offers superior relief and quicker return to function than some of the other competitor products. The main disadvantages I have found is the lack of an approved injectable medication for same day use in my surgery cases, as well as the lack of FDA labelled safety and approval for use in young puppies.6 weeks of age. Also it is so important for clients to review with their veterinarians any prior drug or antibiotic reactions, ot the use of any other over the counter drugs, other prescription medicines, as well as nutritional supplements that could interact with drugs of this class and potentially lead to increased complications. These issues should always be discussed with your vet on case by case basis, but by no means should discourage the use of this wonderful often life saving drug.. 06/13/2008
Effective with TCC Bladder Cancer In March of 2012, my 13 year old jack Russell was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer (TCC). She was given 4 months to live if I did nothing. They had good luck with chemo & NSAID usage. Most studies had used proxicam but my Oncologist recommended Dermaxx. So we went ahead & did the chemo treatments & gave Dermaxx too. She is still with us, starting her 14 month post diagnosis. I believe it has helped keep her with us. She has regular bloodwork & checkups & she also takes a chemo pill. I give her a Pepcid before her Dermaxx & have not had any problems. I also give her milk thistle for her liver & CAS Options for her immune system. When they had stopped making it I panicked but was able to get some from some wonderful folks I met on a cancer forum & that helped us through the shortage. I will continue to use it as long as she is with us. She celebrated her 14th birthday in March & am grateful for that & everyday she is with us. Thanks! 05/08/2013

Everyone that has used Deramaxx including myself has seen incredible improvement, however, what do we use now, since we cannot order this anymore. I have tried all that you say is compatible and nothing has helped.
My dog has had a bad reaction to Piroxicam (vomiting and diarrhea) and Deramaxx (loss of appetite - I quit before it could get any worse G-I-wise). These NSAIDs really helped with her mobility but she could not tolerate them. Which NSAIDs are considered the easiest on the G-I system? (She is being treated for bone cancer.)
Answer:¬†I am terribly sorry to hear about your dog's bone cancer. To answer your question I reached out to one of our staff pharmacist. He shared with me this answer: The Cox-2 non-steroidals like Deramaxx and Previcox are easier on the gastrointestinal tract than the older non-steroidals like Rimadyl.
Answer:¬†My vet said today that it is not known when Deramaxx will be available from Novartis.
Answer:¬†At this time they have not given any information as to when it will reopen. We will have the most recent information on Novartis products on the products information pages. We are getting small supplies of various Novartis products so please check back often.
Answer:¬†Although specific drug interactions haven't been noted with Demarax (Deracoxib), it is always recommeded the careful use of herbal medications. Many herbal products can either increase or decrease the amount of other medications in the body causing serious problems. Devil's claw might increase the effects and side effects of some medications by decreasing the break down of those medications in the liver. Always consult your veterinarian before using any over-the-counter products including herbals if your pet is on a prescription medication.
