Common Uses: Carprofen is an oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that has been prescribed to your dog to manage his/her arthritis pain and inflammation, or has been given post-operatively to reduce pain following surgery. This medication is for use in dogs only. While carprofen is not a cure for osteoarthritis (OA), it can relieve the pain and inflammation of OA and improve your dog's mobility. Response varies from dog to dog but can be quite dramatic. Carprofen is available as caplets or chewable tablets.
Warning Text: Contact your veterinarian immediately if your dog eats more than the prescribed amount of carprofen.; Store in a tight, light resistant, childproof container at room temperature away from heat and direct sunlight. Keep this and all medication out of reach of children and pets. Call your physician immediately if you accidentally take this product. For use in dogs only. Do not use in cats.; Carprofen, like other drugs, may cause some side effects. Serious but rare side effects have been reported in dogs taking NSAIDs, including carprofen. Serious side effects can occur with or without warning and in rare situations result in death. The most common NSAID-related side effects generally involve the stomach (such as bleeding ulcers), and liver or kidney problems. Look for the following side effects that can indicate your dog may be having a problem with carprofen or may have another medical problem: Decrease or increase in appetite. Vomiting. Change in bowel movements (such as diarrhea, or black, tarry or bloody stools). Change in behavior (such as decreased or increased activity level, incoordination, seizure or aggression). Yellowing of gums, skin, or whites of the eyes (jaundice). Change in drinking habits (frequency, amount consumed). Change in urination habits (frequency, color, or smell). Change in skin (redness, scabs, or scratching). It is important to stop therapy and contact your veterinarian immediately if you think your dog has a medical problem or side effect from Carprofen therapy. If you have additional questions about possible side effects, talk to your veterinarian.
Instructions: Carprofen should be given according to your veterinarian's instructions. Your veterinarian will tell you what amount of carprofen is right for your dog and for how long it should be given. Carprofen should be given by mouth and may be given with or without food. While carprofen is not a cure for osteoarthritis, it can relieve the pain and inflammation of OA and improve your dog's mobility. Response varies from dog to dog but can be quite dramatic. In most dogs, improvement can be seen in a matter of days. If Carprofen is discontinued or not given as directed, your dog's pain and inflammation may come back.
