What is Deramaxx?

Deramaxx is used in dogs to control pain and inflammation. Its particularly effective against osteoarthritis, a degenerative disease that affects your dogs joints. It is available as beef-flavored, scored, chewable tablets. Deramaxx requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:
  • Controls pain and inflammation
  • Reduces pain & inflammation associated with canine arthritis, specifically controlling chronic osteoarthritis
  • Nonsteroidal
  • Comes in a tasty beef-flavored chewable tablet, making administration easy
How it Works:

Deramaxx is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that belongs to the COX-2 inhibitor class of medications. Deramaxx is different from other NSAIDs because at recommended doses it blocks the COX-2 enzyme, not the COX-1 enzyme. While the COX-1 enzyme is necessary for many normal body functions, COX-2 enzymes trigger inflammation and contribute to pain in arthritic joints.

Cautions:

Side effects involving the digestive system, kidneys, or liver may occur. Periodic blood tests may be required.

Brand Name:

Deramaxx (Novartis)

Generic Name:

Deracoxib (der-ah-cox'-ib)

What is the most important information I should know about Deramaxx:

Deramaxx is a prescription medication that is FDA approved for use in dogs. Deramaxx is available as 25mg, 75mg, and 100mg chewable, scored tablets. Contact your veterinarian if your pet has hives or an allergic reaction after taking sulfa-based medications such as SMZ/TMP, aspirin, or another NSAID such as Rimadyl. Notify your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops or experiences any of the following: abdominal pain, tenderness or discomfort, nausea, bloody, black, or tarry stools, water retention, fatigue or lethargy, a skin rash, itching, yellowing of the eyes, or unusual bruising or bleeding as these symptoms could be early signs of dangerous side effects. Before giving your pet any prescription or over-the-counter medications, check with your veterinarian or pharmacist.

What is Deramaxx:

Deramaxx is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Deramaxx works by reducing substances that cause pain, inflammation, and fever in the body. Deramaxx is used to reduce pain associated with surgery or dental procedures. Deramaxx is also used for the treatment of inflammation and stiffness as a result of conditions such as arthritis or hip dysplasia. Deramaxx may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Deramaxx to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to aspirin or any other NSAID, an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach, liver or kidney disease, congestive heart failure, fluid retention, bleeding disorders, heart disease, or high blood pressure. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is taking a steroid medication such as prednisone, methylprednisolone, or Prednisolone.

How should this medication be given:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The usual dose of Deramaxx in treating post-operative pain and inflammation is 1.4-1.8mg/pound as a single daily dose. The usual dose of Deramaxx in the treatment of osteoarthritis pain and inflammation is 0.45-0.91mg/pound as a single daily dose. Deramaxx can be given with or without food. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Store Deramaxx at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Do not give Deramaxx to cats.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet:

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Deramaxx overdose include drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, headache, blurred vision, little or no urine production, slow breathing, and coma.

What should I avoid while giving Deramaxx to my pet:

Many over-the-counter cough, cold, allergy, and pain medicines contain aspirin or other NSAIDs similar to Deramaxx. Before giving any prescription or over-the-counter medications talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist.

What are the possible side effects of Deramaxx:

Contact your veterinarian if your pet has abdominal pain, tenderness, or discomfort, bloody, black or tarry stools, blood in vomit, unexplained weight gain, water retention, fatigue or lethargy, skin rash, itching, yellowing of eyes, or unusual bruising or bleeding as these symptoms could indicate serious side effects. If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Deramaxx and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue or face, or hives). Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Deramaxx and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences flatulence or diarrhea, dizziness, headache, or insomnia. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What other drugs will affect Deramaxx:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given any of the following: aspirin, another NSAID such as etodolac, carprofen, or piroxicam, an over-the-counter cough, cold, allergy, or pain medication, warfarin, furosemide, an ACE inhibitor such as enalapril, a steroid such as prednisone, insulin, or probenecid. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Deramaxx. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving your pet any prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Where can I get more information:

Your pharmacist has additional information about Deramaxx written for health professionals that you may read.

Customer Reviews
Deramaxx is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 331.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a puppy again! Irish Wheatens stay puppies until the day they die. I am so happy to see Charley acting like a little leprechaun again. Deramaxx has helped him to be mobile when he wakes up in the morning after laying down all night. He is happy again! Would recommend trying this for anyone with an old dog that is having old age movement problems. Charley's only issue was aging, now he is happy again...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I give this to my Labradoodle and it really helps him to feel better. He hates the pills so I have to hide them in a hotdog but it's worth the trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a 13-year-old golden doodle named Isabella Regina. She was having issues with arthritis and we were prescribed Deramaxx. While I totally trust my veterinarian, the prices there were a little high but Isabella would've been worth every penny. But lucky for me I found 1800 Pet Meds and the price came down and it makes it easier for me to have no problem getting the meds for her. God bless Pet Meds!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it actually works I have a 7 yr old German Shepherd service dog.. she recently was started on Deramaxx. She had been on rymadil. With little to no real relief from pain or discomfort. Deramaxx has been wonderful she's back to her playful self and happy with no discomfort or pain. I highly recommend this product. Deramaxx has given my dog her life back. Thank you for something that actually works

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Single Best Thing Ever For My Senior Pitizen Scrappy is a 13 year old pit bull who is in remarkably good health internally, but whose rear legs/hips have grown weaker with age. Tramadol, Rimadyl, supplements, none of them provided any relief at all, sadly, and it got to the point where the poor fella couldnt get around very well. Deramaxx has provided him, thus far, an additional year of life. When he started on it the improvement was dramatic and almost immediate. A few days after taking it he was running. RUNNING. And that improvement has been consistent. There is no doubt that it is due in full to his taking Deramaxx because over the last year his meds have come late once leaving him a few days without, and sure enough the first day a dose is missed he is much, much less active, and if there's a second day without a dose he is almost immobile. That has inspired me to make sure I always order a week in advance and am also able to get a week's supply from his vet if needed so that he'll never again miss a dose. Very sincerely I say that this medication has bought us an extra year (and hopefully much more) with my best friend.

Q&A

Should a 22lb terrier take 25mg of deramaxx and 5mg of Benazepril after eating in the morning? Dog was being treated for high blood pressure and spinal discomforts.

Asked by: Lucy

My dog was given a 5 pill script of deramaxx 75mg. One or both of my dogs got ahold of the bottle and all the pills are gone. Is that enough medication to be of concern?

Asked by: Mom2tnd
Your dog(s) may get an upset digestive tract (vomiting and/or diarrhea) but there should be no long-term problems after a one-time high dosage.

Is it okay to give deramaxx if it is over 3 year old prescriptions?

Asked by: Freddy
Product my clinic purchased in November 2016 has an expiration date of March 2019 so the product you have may or may not still be within the expiration date. If Deramaxx was not a chewable tablet, I would say it is still okay to give it although the potency of the medication may be decreased slightly. However, being a chewable, I would be more concerned about the flavor parts being "bad" this close or just past the expiration date.

Unfortunately, most of our pain relief medications do require prescriptions from your veterinarian. I suggest speaking with your veterinarian about prescribing a more affordable alternative.

My 50 pound dog got a hold of deramxx 75mg. Prescription for pain. We dont know how many she took. There are 2 1/2 chewabke pills left. We dont know how many were in there. The bottle says there were 15 pill initially filled 

Asked by: Maddie
This can be a very large overdose, since it is possible that your dog took 13 pills. Call your veterinarian immediately so they can assess your dog and determine the severity of the overdose.

My dog has allergies and is on Apoquel.  Deramaxx has a beef flavor.   Would that bother her allergies?

Asked by: Raddy
If your dog is allergic to beef, this may aggravate her allergies.
