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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great!! My dog is 10 years old, and he was slowing down and got to the point he could not hardly walk, the vet diagnosed him with arthritis and prescribed Deramaxx. It has worked so well, he is back to his old self which makes me so happy :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from medication really helps my dogs arthritis pain I took my dog to the vet because she was helping like she was in pain when trying to come up the stairs and sometimes when she had to stoop to go to the bathroom. Turns out she has arthritis at only 6 y.o. and hip dysplasia. The vet put her on 50 mg which is .91 mg/pound dose for a 55lb dog. Many people are blaming the medication for bad things happening to their dog but they don't say anything about the research they did not do and the questions they did not ask before they gave the medication to their dog. The guideline state to start with the lowest dose .45 mg/pound and it also states that it is not for long term use and side effects to look for that indicate the medication should be stopped. I don't have $4000 for surgery for my dog so this is the alternative. When her hips get really bad I will have to put her down anyway; I would rather she be comfortable and being her crazy self than to have her crying in pain and afraid to sit down and having to carry her up and down steps for her to go outdoors to the bathroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps so much!! My 5 year old chocolate lab had surgery on her knee. The deramaxx has been helping her so much as she heals. She's limping less when she's on it. The one negative is that it's expensive. I would also look into long term affects if she needs to be on it for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! My Golden Retriever was diagnosed with luxating patellas on both rear legs and hip dysplasia at the age of six months. We had a $4,000 surgery done on the one leg but couldn't afford to do the other, but it wasn't near as bad. He's five years old now and the legs are both bad, hips are much worse and he could barely walk and get himself up at Christmas. My vet gave him injections and the Deramaxx and it really seemed to help. I couldn't afford to do the injections every four days, so I continued with the Deramaxx and it's done wonders for him. He can once again go up the stairs, slowly, but he does it on his own. And he can now get around without needing to be lifted. I thought I was going to have to put him down two months ago, so this has been a Godsend to us. Even if it just buys him a little more time, it's worth it to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from much improvement My 14+ year old golden retriever has severe arthritis and had been on Rimadyl for a long time. She had slowed down as normal but she didn't want to walk. We checked out deramaxx and decided given it was only a Cox 2 inhibitor, we thought it would be a much better drug. She is now willing to walk around the block, slowly, but at least walking. We also give her an Adequan shot weekly which also has made a big difference. We started the shots before the deramaxx because she had to be off the rimadyl for a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We have been using this product for a couple of years for our big dog, Marla. This products has been very helpful for her pain/osteoarthritis. We order the product online and product arrives fast and easy after our vet's office approves it. Highly recommend 1800PETMEDS!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fast acting The improved behavior of our pet was noticed within 12 hours. Mobility improved by around 50%. Her spirit as a result also improved. It is not a "save all" medication but it sure does help. The cost may be prohibitive for many.

How do I get refill on Deramax

Asked by: buster
Your vet must have submitted the prescription with refills allowed in order for 1800PetMeds to refill. If a refill was not included in the original order, your vet must call, email, fax or mail his/her refill authorization to 1800PetMeds. They are just like any pharmacy and cannot dispense drugs without a doctor's orders. If your vet requires a hard copy prescription, please allow time to mail it to the pharmacy. I did use a USPS Priority mail envelope ($6) to get my refill submitted as quickly as possible. They immediately acknowledged the receipt of the Rx and shipped it out the same day.

Which NSAIDs are easiest on G-I system?

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.)
Asked by: Deb
I am so sorry to hear your dog has bone cancer. Our dog seems to only take the Deramaxx if in cheese, but we give her at a separate time of the day Canine Flex Plus which is liver based for her joints and Hyla Flex 10 for large dogs which is a Hyaluronic Acid on a little dry food mixed with warm water. Also, when giving the Deramaxx I know the vet suggested we give her an Acid controller like Pepcid. I hope you find something that will alleviate your dogs pain. Good luck
