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. If your dog ingests more than your veterinarian prescribed, or if your other pets accidentally take Novox Carprofen, contact your veterinarian right away.

What are the possible side effects of Novox Carprofen?

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. Serious adverse reactions associated with this drug class can occur without warning and in rare situations result in death. 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.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Novox?

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 give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What should I avoid while giving Novox Carprofen to my pet?

Many over the counter cough, cold, allergy and pain medicines contain aspirin or other NSAIDs similar to Novox Carprofen. Before giving any prescription or over the counter medications talk to the veterinarian or pharmacist.

What other drugs will affect Novox Carprofen?

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. Novox Carprofen should not be given with other NSAIDs (for example, aspirin, deracoxib, etodolac, firocoxib, meloxicam, tepoxalin) or steroids (for example, cortisone, dexamethasone, prednisone, triamcinolone). Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Novox Carprofen. Talk to your veterinarian before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medicines.

How to Use
Directions:
  • The recommended dosage for oral administration to dogs is 2 mg/lb of body weight daily. However, Novox Carprofen should be given only as prescribed by your veterinarian.
  • Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response.
  • Novox Carprofen can be given as a single full dose once a day or divided in half and given twice a day.
  • Novox Carprofen is for dogs only. Do not give to cats.
  • Novox Carprofen Caplets and Chewable Tablets are scored and dosage should be calculated in half-tablet increments. Tablets can be halved by placing the tablet on a hard surface and pressing down on both sides of the score.
  • Novox Carprofen Caplets and Chewable Tablets may be offered to your dog by hand or placed on food. If your dog does not willingly consume the tablets, they may be hand-administered (pilled) as with other oral tablets.

Customer Reviews
Novox Carprofen - Generic to Rimadyl is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 504.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pill My old boy is 16 years old now and I really can say this helps a lot.
Date published: 2017-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves her nightly walks. It keeps her mobile. Otherwise she'd be in too much discomfort to move around much and then of course her muscles and joints would degenerate making her condition even worse. She's 14 1/2. This way we go for walks nearly every night after I'm home from work, which I know would be impossible for her without the Novox. She loves her walks and this of course helps keep her mental state of mind healthy and happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She has spirit again and a bounce to her step ! We have had Sierra on Novox for 2 months now . She is Boxer/ Rottweiler mix 11 years old . Prior to Novox vet prescribed the Rimadyl for arthritis and a hip issue so bad that she was walking on 3 legs. The Rimadyl worked and it was a smooth transition to Novox which continues to keep her comfortable and active on all 4 legs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog still acts like a puppy! We've been using Novox carprofen for over six months and my dog is still doing great! He's a 12 year old male vizsla (birthday is August 17th) who was diagnosed with bladder cancer January 2017, he was given 3-6 months at best!! We decided to not do chemo as this cancer really has no good outcome :/ So we took our vets advise and have him this medication, for pain and some vitamin C. Not saying this is what anyone should do but so far he's still with us...minor issue of urine accidents due to the tumours but other than that he's still our happy boy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a new dog! My 12 year old lab had been moving slow for some time. We took her to the vet for several issues, and addressed this one as well. Within a week, she was a new dog. Both my husband and I have said we should have done this earlier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Samson has been taking this product for about a year and I can see the changes in him. He's a 10 year old pig and was having joint problems with walking. Now he walking wth his brother with no problem. He's a little slow but I think that might be a pug feature.

Q&A

Is there an over-the-counter option similar to Rimadyl? My dog is healing from a possible ACL tear and wondering if there is something we can give him that doesn't require a prescription; we are trying to avoid surgery on our senior-age dog.

Asked by: Julie
There is nothing comparable to Rimadyl over the counter. Consult your veterinarian for the appropriate drug treatment regimen for your pet's condition.

What is the shelf life after expiration date for Novox?

Asked by: shane
Thank you for your question. Medications have expiration dates to ensure that they are only taken within the time the active ingredient and other ingredients are safe and effective to use. Rimadyl/Novox has an expiration date after which the active ingredient, carprofen, may not be effective and may even be dangerous. The active ingredient in each form may have degraded to a point where not enough medicine is being supplied.

I had assumed this generic would be really similar to rimadyl, but my dog likes the rimadyl chewables, thinks they are a treat. He sniffs the generic and refuses to eat it. Is this generic not flavored? If I can't get him to eat it can I return it?

Asked by: Joanna
Novox only comes in a non-flavored caplet. A chewable alternative to Rimadyl is Quellin. As for unused medication being returned, someone from PetMeds will need to answer that. All I know is that Florida state law (my home state) does not permit the return of any prescription medication for refund once it has left the building.

If I have a prescription for Rimadyl 100mg chewable 60 county can I use it to by the generic Novox caplets? can I fax the prescripton? thanks.

Asked by: CODAH
This would only work if it says substitution allowed so that you can get the generic. Otherwise, I would just have the Vet change it for you and then can fax it. If you have further questions about this topic, I would call our customer support line, toll free 1-800-738-6337. Hope this helps.

Can I crush novavx

Asked by: Stella
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.
