What is Novox Carprofen - Generic to Rimadyl?

Novox is a generic equivalent for Rimadyl (carprofen) caplets. It's a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) used to treat pain and inflammation due to arthritis and other joint diseases, including hip dysplasia. It's also used to reduce fever. Novox requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Generic to Rimadyl Caplets and same as: Vetprofen, Carpaquin, Norocarp and Putney's Carprofen Caplets

For:

Dogs (over 6 weeks of age)

Benefits:
  • Can be given as a single daily dose
  • Effective
  • Easy to administer
  • Same ingredient as: Norocarp, Vetprofen, Carpaquin and Putney's Carprofen Caplets
How it Works:

Novox works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in your dog's body.

Cautions:

Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any other prescription or over-the-counter medications to your pet. Should not be given to pregnant or lactating dogs, or dogs used for breeding.

Brand Name:

Novox Caplets (Vedco)

Generic Name:

Carprofen (car-pro'-fen)

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Novox 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; has 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.

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

Novox is a prescription medication that is FDA approved for use in dogs. Novox is available as 25mg, 75mg and 100mg capsule shaped scored non-chewable tablets (Caplets). The usual total daily dose in dogs is 2mg per pound given as a single daily dose or divided and administered as 1mg per pound twice a day. Contact the veterinarian if the pet has bloody, black or tarry stools as these symptoms could indicate damage to the stomach or intestines, which could be dangerous. Before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medications check with your veterinarian or pharmacist.

How should this medication be given:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Novox should be given with food. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Store Novox at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Do not give Novox to cats.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

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

What should I avoid while giving Novox to my pet:

Many over the counter cough, cold, allergy and pain medicines contain aspirin or other NSAID's similar to Novox. Before taking any prescription or over the counter medications talk to the veterinarian or pharmacist.

What are the possible side effects of Novox:

Contact the veterinarian if the pet has bloody, black or tarry stools or blood in vomit as these symptoms could indicate serious side effects. If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Novox and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives); muscle cramps, open sores in the mouth, rapid weight gain due to fluid retention; seizures, abdominal cramping. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Novox and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences headache, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, or constipation, depression, fatigue or weakness, dry mouth. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Novox:

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

Customer Reviews
Novox Carprofen - Generic to Rimadyl is rated 4.5165 out of 5 by 455.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works Bottom line...Carprofen works. There are rare cases where one pill wasn't enough in one dose so two pills would have to be used in the dose. Either way, the product works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results! Our 14 year old girl was beginning to stumble and had a few falls getting in and out of our vehicles. Vet started her on Rimadyl and a friend recommended this lower priced generic. It has given our dog a new lease on life! She's back to running through the house with the younger dogs and can again walk her 2 plus mile daily walk. So happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stuff! I have been giving this medication to my dogs for the last 7 years. It gave my old girl, Angel, a new lease on life when she started failing. I now give it to my old girl, Abby, and it is helping her as well. I would recommend this product to anyone who has an aging pet who is in a lot of pain. It would also help young pets if they have an injury. Great stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been using this product for over a year. My dog is 15 years old and she walks more freely in an out of the house. Before she was taking it on a daily basis, she could hardly walk. She would be mostly laying in her bed. It seems like she has more energy It just perks her up;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for joint pain that I have found My beloved Sadie, my 14 (almost 15) year old 100 pound Aussie wouldn't be here now except for the carprofin I have been buying from you for the past year. She plays like a 10 year old and is real 'sparky'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have been using this product for about 4 months. Lulu is my 14 year old lab she has arthritis bad. I noticed she was so comfortable after starting her on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Novox helps a lot Buddy, who passed away two years ago at 16, was on it his last three years and it helped him to be a lot more mobile and comfortable. Pearl, who's 13 now, has been on it for most of the year and it makes a noticeable big difference for her. Especially climbing the little doggie steps up to her favorite spot on the couch. But it does seem to take an hour or more for it to show results, and that's OK. I do have to put it in a treat otherwise she won't take it. She's spit it out a couple of times, but then I just put it in another treat, these are small samples, and then it's always down and done. Not a big deal. So, it's worked well for my little buddies, and it's not a budget buster for most, so I never hesitate recommending it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Novox is helping. Had her on deramaxx for a while and it works a little faster but she seemed sedated some what but with the Novox it takes a little longer but gets the same results with out the sedation.

Do i need a prescription to get this medicine? My jack Russell has had surgery to remove a very bad tooth and just like the vet said, the other will probably go bad also. He is back to rubbing his face on the floor, screaming if his mouth is touched.

Asked by: Scooterbug
Yes, Novofox does require a prescription from your veterinarian.

Can novax be split 4 x. My dog is 5.5 lbs so only needs a quarter pill

Asked by: Rere
The tablets/caplets can easily be split... each are scored in half which means that you're guaranteed to be giving 1/2 of the dose of the full tablet. When you break beyond the scoring, you aren't guaranteed the exact milligram... this shouldn't be too much of an issue though.

What is the strength of a 25 mg pill of Norox?

My dog currently takes a 1/2 of 25 mg/240# strength Vetprofen pill once a day.
Asked by: Phylis
The mg is short for milligram.. so, the strength of the tablet, is 25 milligrams. You're pet is on 12.5 milligram for each dose.
