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

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both my big Whites with hip problems have been on NOVOX for 3 yeas now, with no adverse effects.It has helped measurably.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rock hard tablets hard to break in two. Do not purchase if you have to give you dog 50mg in morning and at night. Pill breaks into dust and uneven splits are a pain. Dog hates the smell and I have to wrap in cheese. I do not feel this medication is as effective as Rimadel or Quellin. I have used both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I have not noticed any limping on my dog Jack since I switched him from Rimadyl to Novox. I am quite pleased because these drugs are not cheap!!

It is okay to break or crush Novox and administer it to your dog mixed with food. It is best to mix it with some moist food and make sure there is plenty of clean water is available.

My dog is about 80/85 lbs what should be her dosages

Asked by: Mrs vee
The usual total daily dose in dogs in this weight range is around 75mg twice daily, given with food. Even though the usual daily dose in dogs is 1mg per pound twice a day, it is extremely important to contact the veterinarian in order to get the appropriate dose for your pet. Each pet is different and the correct dose would depend of a variety of factors that your veterinarian can assess.

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.
