Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as the vet We had been getting this at the vet monthly for nearly twice the cost! My dog as arthritis in his spine and will be on meds for the rest of his life (he's only 7) and I am happy we can get this cheaper here, and its delivered to me as well, bonus! No driving to the vet monthly! He is still continuing to do well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT work for my GSD! I have an 8 year old female German Shepherd Dog with osteoarthritis that the vet thinks is due to an injury she had a few years ago. Otherwise she is extremely healthy. I just tried this generic version of Rimadyl after receiving alomost daily emails for months from 1800petmeds touting it being just as good for less. Of course I checked the reviews and saw that they were mostly positive. Biggest regret ever. The first couple doses seemed to be ok... but as time has gone on, it seems less and less effective... It has been almost a month. Perhaps as the Rimadyl has completely left her system.... My poor girl. She just tried walking down the stairs and yelped loudly due to pain from her osteoarthritis. I feel HORRIBLE for sacrificing her comfort to try and save a few dollars. She NEVER has had this happen while taking Rimadyl (for nearly a year), even after being more active than normal. Thankfully her Rimadyl is on the way. It is going to be a LONG two days. If your beloved pet has been successfully treated with Rimadyl, do not take the chance that this will work and you may inadvertently cause pain to try and save a few dollars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carprofen My 13 year old border collie has been on Rimadyl for quite a long time. I decided to switch to Carprofen since it was less expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Medication I moved quite far from my previous vet, so sought another near me. Donnie had been on Tramadol for chronic arthritis pain. My NEW vet explained that although Tramadol is a good pain reliever, it wasn't helping the actual problem. She suggested switching to a combination of Carprofen and Gabapentin. I admit I was a little leery after four years on the other med...but decided to go for it. OMG the difference in Donnie's pain level us unbelievable! He seems so much happier, wants to go on more walks, and just generally healthier! Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mastiff with slight Hip Displaysia So grateful our dog is more active. <3 The doctor recommended this and we found it on 1800 pet meds for less money. I was kinda nervous when they requested the prescription because I didn't know how the vet would react - as we typically by right from their pharmacy; but 1800 pet meds took care of that conversation and got the script. Thank you for making it so convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results! My mother's dog is a little overweight. He is only 6 and started showing signs of arthritis. After seeing him starting to limp and whimper when trying to get up, we knew it was time to take him to the vet. The vet confirmed the arthritis diagnosis and recommended a name brand drug that was $75 for a 14 day supply. I knew I wouldn't be able to afford this so I started researching alternative medicines. That's when I came across Carprofen on 1800 Pet Meds. I was able to order two months worth of medicine for the same price as the vet recommended 14 day supply. This saved our dog and our wallet. Shipping was fast and free, couldn't have had a better experience!

She started showing signs of arthritis about a year before, but due to my fears about drugs I hesitated.When she didn't want to come up stairs and didn't enjoy the park anymore it motivated me to help her in any way I could. Her playful trot has returned and she is a much happier dog...at this point in her life, thats what it is all about.

It was a fight to get her to accept the Rimadyl and we would go a few rounds of her spitting it out before she would finally chew it up. I was amazed at the difference with the chewable Carprofen.........she runs to me for her favorite treat! Nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT USE THIS DRUG. My dog has been on Rimadyl for years, and has largely had good results. Since she has been on this generic, she has trouble walking long distances or running at all. Her eyes are always wide as if she is in pain, and she is constantly panting and drooling. It is not a minor difference in effectiveness; it is as if she is not on any medication at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to give My dog is 14 years old. She has hip dysplasia and has a little trouble running. I believe with all my heart that Carprofen has enabled her to do as much as she's doing. I don't want to stop giving it to,her to see if it's really working because I don't want to risk putting her in any more pain than necessary. She's still playful, though clumsy because of her hip. She will bump into something when I play with her and she has to stop. But, when we take her to the diog park, she still runs, but she hops her back legs. Without the Carprofen I believe she wouldn't be able to run at all. She's been the best pet ever and, thanks to your product, is living a good life. She's well-taken-care of. Thank you for providing such great products for pet lovers everywhere!

Only change is addition of Novox. Dog has continous gas that is very odorous now. Can this be a side effect?

Asked by: Doglady61
Adverse reactions of Novox may include decreased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, dark or tarry stools, increased water consumption, increased urination, pale gums due to anemia, yellowing of gums, skin or white of the eye due to jaundice, lethargy, incoordination, seizure, or behavioral changes. The Novox can certainly be the cause of your pet's flatulence.

Asked by: DozersMom
Adverse reactions may include decreased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, dark or tarry stools, increased water consumption, increased urination, pale gums due to anemia, yellowing of gums, skin or white of the eye due to jaundice, lethargy, incoordination, seizure, or behavioral changes. Pet parents should be advised to discontinue Novox Carprofen therapy and contact their veterinarian immediately if signs of intolerance are observed. The vast majority of patients with drug-related adverse reactions have recovered when the signs are recognized, the drug is withdrawn, and veterinary care, if appropriate, is initiated. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your dog.

How long does carprofen take to get out of a dogs system so it can start on galliprant

Asked by: Liza
Thank you for your question. When the medication is given to your canine, about 90 percent of the drug is absorbed. The medication is typically effective about one to three hours after administration, and the half-life of the medicines is about eight hours on average. Be sure to consult with your DVM as they will advise when you can safely start the Galliprant.

What is Novox Carprofen - Generic to Rimadyl?

Novox is a generic equivalent for Rimadyl (carprofen). 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 and to help control postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgery in dogs. Novox is available as caplets (non-chewable) and liver-flavored chewable tablets. Both are scored for easy dosing and administration. Novox requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

How does Novox Carprofen work?

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. Novox Carprofen should not be given to humans or cats. Seek medical assistance if cats or humans accidentally take Novox Carprofen. Your dog should not be given Novox Carprofen if he/she has had an allergic reaction to carprofen, the active ingredient of Novox. Do not give your dog Novox Carprofen if he/she has had an allergic reaction to aspirin or other NSAIDs (for example deracoxib, etodolac, firocoxib, meloxicam, phenylbutazone or tepoxalin) such as hives, facial swelling, or red or itchy skin.

Brand Name:

Novox (Vedco)

Generic Name:

Carprofen (car-pro'-fen)

What is the most important information I should know about Novox Carprofen?

Novox is a prescription medication that is FDA approved for use in dogs. Novox is available as 25 mg, 75 mg and 100 mg capsule shaped scored non-chewable caplets, and as 25 mg, 75 mg and 100 mg liver-flavored scored chewable tablets. The usual total daily dose in dogs is 2 mg per pound given as a single daily dose or divided and administered as 1 mg per pound twice a day. Contact the veterinarian if your pet has bloody, black or tarry stools as these symptoms could indicate damage to the stomach or intestines, which could be dangerous. As with all prescribed medicines, Novox Carprofen should only be given to the dog for which it was prescribed. It should be given to your dog only for the condition for which it was prescribed. It is important to periodically discuss your dog's response to Novox Carprofen at regular check ups. Your veterinarian will best determine if your dog is responding as expected and if your dog should continue receiving Novox Carprofen. Before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medications, check with your veterinarian or pharmacist.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Novox Carprofen to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given any other medications, including those you can get over the counter. Also, tell your veterinarian if your dog has any other medical problems or allergies. Talk to your veterinarian before giving your pet any new prescription or over the counter medicines. Tell your veterinarian if your dog has ever experienced side effects from Novox or other NSAIDs such as aspirin, had digestive upset (vomiting and/or diarrhea), liver disease, kidney disease, or a bleeding disorder (for example, Von Willebrand's disease).

How should Novox Carprofen 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 Carprofen Caplets at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Store 25 mg and 75 mg Novox Carprofen Chewable Tablets at 59-86F (15-30C). Store 100 mg Novox Carprofen Chewable Tablets at controlled room temperature, 68-77F (20-25C). Use half-tablets within 30 days. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Do not give Novox Carprofen to cats. Novox Carprofen Chewable Tablets are formulated to taste good to pets. Keep Novox Carprofen in a secured storage area out of the reach of your dog and other pets.
