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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Novox - Miracle Pill For Pet! Adopted my dog 7yo Aussie mix from ASPCA and was informed that Novox was highly recommended as my dog has bone degeneration disease and hip displaysia. Novox has turned my newly adopted dog into such a happy buddy now! I know he had to be in pain and was pretending everything was okay before. Now, with his medications, he is such a happier dog and I know he feels better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My senior dog can't live without it! My dog is 14.5 years old and is still very happy and spry because of Novox. About a year ago I had her in to the vet because I was concerned that even though she was seemingly very healthy, she was starting to sleep and pant a lot. Reading up on it, I found out that excessive panting and sleeping could be because she was in pain. Sure enough when I took her to her vet visit, I found out she has arthritis in her hips. They prescribed Novox. As soon as she started taking it, she was like a new dog again. She was more awake, alert, happier, and there was a LOT less panting. She even jumps around on occasion which I try not to encourage because I don't want her irritating her arthritis. Nowadays as her age and arthritis progresses, she is still doing wonderfully with the Novox. I have her in to the vet often for Chem 10 blood tests to make sure her liver is handling the Novox since it is known to be hard on the liver. After a year and a couple months on the Novox, her liver levels elevated. The doctor then gave her Denamarin which is an excellent liver support supplement. Her liver levels are back to normal. While she was going through this brief episode, I had cut her back on her Novox to see how she would do without it and to give her liver a break so it could repair with the Denamarin. There was a noticeable difference when she did not get the full dose of Novox every day. She was losing her balance when standing and would fall backwards when she was pottying. As soon as she got back to getting her full dosage of Novox every day, she is back to normal...as normal as she can be at such an old age! To this day she still jumps around and tries to jump in and out of my car. I still discourage it lol because though she may feel ok at the time, she will probably feel the irritation to her joints later. Novox is keeping my senior doggy happy and healthy even at 14.5 years old. I recommend that anyone who suspects their senior doggy or even younger dog to have arthritis, to ask your vet about Novox and of course Denamarin if you are worried about your dog's liver. Your dog will feel 100 times better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Novox Carprofen is great! Bought a few weeks ago and already notice a difference!
Date published: 2016-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Dog My vet suggested this product for Dixie over a year ago. Dixie had arthritis and aches from several old injuries. She also had a hot spot that she licked constantly and the vet thought that was because of the ache in the joint under the hotspot. It took time, but after a few months on the Novox Dixie is a happier healthy dog. Her hot spot has SLOWLY disappeared. I have a happier dog these days.

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!

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.
