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.

What is Novox: Novox is a nonsteroidal ant-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Novox works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. Novox is used to reduce pain as associated with surgery or dental procedures. Novox is also used for the treatment of inflammation and stiffness as a result of conditions such as arthritis or hip dysplasia. Novox may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

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.

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 happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Novox overdose include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, drowsiness, headache, blurred vision, seizures, panting, little or no urine production, and slow breathing.

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.

Miracle Pill Novox has put the bounce back in Ollie's steps. Ollie is a 25 lb, 17.5 years old cockapoo mix. Before Novox, Ollie had trouble rising from a lying down position, was obviously in pain when he walked, had many accidents in the house because he could not get outside in time and could barely walk down the block. After 3 days on Novox, he was getting up without much trouble, trotting around the house and eager to go on walks again. One neighbor thought I had gotten another dog - she could not believe how Ollie seemed like a much younger happier dog. Yes, Novox can put a strain on your budget if you have a large dog, but it is really worth every penny and will change the quality of your dog's life. 06/12/2011
VERY EFFECTIVE NOVOX IS EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE AND LILU , MY 12 YR OLD COCKER, IS WALKING BETTER AND HER LIMP HAS DECLINED EXCEPT WHEN SHE TRIES TO WALK FAST OR RUN, THEN IT IS NOTICEABLE. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANY DOG WITH ARTHRITIS OR OTHER JOINT PAIN 04/04/2011
Lovein It! My sweet Baby is doing so much better! I dont even have to give it to her everyday. Novox has saved me money and my sweetheart is feeling like herself again. Think God for PetMeds!!!! Macie and I love you PetMeds! 03/30/2011
Minnie, our 8 year old beagle, injured her leg doing a running jump off our deck. She was able to get around but had great difficulty climbing stairs, to the point I had to carry her up frequently. She has been on Novox for a year and is doing very well. I highly recommend it. I love that I get an email from 1-800-PetMeds when a refill is due. 09/06/2014
effective as name brand My Doberman has bone cancer. Her quality of life these last few months has been good, with minimal pain using Carprofen and Tramadol. I was anxious changing her NISAD from the higher price brand to Novox, but I needed to reduce the cost of caring for her. After 3 weeks the Novox is as effective as the higher price brand. Thank you for helping my sweet girl enjoy her life. 08/31/2014

Answer: 
We use Novox with Tramadol for our 12 year old Walker Coonhound, without any negative side effects..in fact, per our Vet's recommendation, using the two medications in tandem, actually complements the effectiveness of Novox's pain relief. It's been a blessing for our pet...she rests very comfortably without the hip pain she regularly endures.
