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.

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

Novox Carprofen - Generic to Rimadyl is rated 4.512304250559284 out of 5 by 447.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Relief Smoke was hit by a car and broke his leg, meds kicked in in about 2 hours for him and he was back to his playful self!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Efficacy good but lack of taste breaks this one I totally ordered this without even looking into the details and that is quite obviously my fault. The pills are scored which make administration easier and for half-doses. They seem to work fine though it's hard to tell; however, there's a big issue here: the lack of flavor has made this one very difficult to convince my dog to eat. I'm sticking them in treats, his food, everything. In the end he always got his dose but I won't be purchasing it again simply because Rimadyl and (hopefully) Quellin are basically treats to him. Overall, I can't rate negatively for a product which does what it is intended to do but I would not recommend this to another person for the above reason, or I would at least let them know the potential difficulties which might complicate things. 3/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Relief! Woodstock and Sam are both older small dogs with arthritis. Neither can jump up without their Novox Carprofen. They like to chase the deer and squirrels and without this medication they cannot enjoy their favorite things. They get periodic bloodworm done to check their liver and kidney functions and both are always well within normal limits. We are thankful that they have this relief.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He's a happy dog again 12 yr old large collie/shepherd mix was limping badly and depressed with arthritis in front leg. Rimadyl was sooo expensive, I decided to try this. It works very well at a fraction of the cost. It's not a cure, but he is happy and can go on short hikes in his favorite park again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Price I am so happy that pet meds offers this medication for such a great price. I have a 13 year old, orthopedic nightmare pet who also has bone cancer.. with that said, her medications are expensive and pet meds has come to the rescue! Novox/Carprofen/Rimadyl is an excellent NSAID as long as your dog can tolerate it. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appears to work Great My 15 year old border collie mix has been on Novox for a week now and she is doing really well. She has severe shoulder issues and is walking much easier and getting up easier.

Q&A

Has Novox caused side effects of irregular heartbeat and impairment of gate causing the dog to shuffle, sometimes barely able to move?

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.

Why do you not offer the chewalbe carprofen?

Asked by: vanessa2155
We now carry Quellin which is a generic version of chewable carprofen. It is less expensive than the brand name Rimadyl chew tablets that we also carry. Please check it out on our website to compare prices.

Vetalog & Carprofen

My dog was given a Vetalog injection today at the vet. She was diagnosed with a partial ACL tear and is in a lot of pain tonight. Is it ok to give her a Carprofen after receiving the Vetalog injection today?
Asked by: scaw528
This is a question that you must ask your veterinarian. The vetalog is a steroid and the Carprofen is an NSAID - non -steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
