Manufacturer |

Novox (Carprofen) Caplet for dogs is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain and inflammation from arthritis pain, joint disease pain, including hip dysplasia, post-operative pain, and reduce fever.
Why choose Novox for your pet's arthritis or joint pain?
Novox contains the same active ingredient (carprofen) and relieves the same types of pain as Rimadyl®, but costs less!

Do I need to get a new prescription from my vet to order Novox instead of Rimadyl®?
From our pharmacist: Generally no. Unless your veterinarian writes “dispense as written” or “no substitution” on your prescription, Novox can generally be substituted for Rimadyl. If your veterinarian writes your prescription as Carprofen, Novox can be dispensed.

Novox (Carprofen) for Dogs

What is Novox and what does it treat?

Novox is the Vedco brand name for generic Carprofen and a generic equivalent to Rimadyl. It is a Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) used to treat pain and inflammation in your dog; helping to relieve arthritis pain, joint pain, post-operative pain, and reduces fever in dogs. .

How does Novox reduce my dog’s discomfort?

NSAIDS, like Novox, inhibit the production of prostaglandins in your dog’s cells. What this basically means is: When your dog takes Novox, they produce fewer chemicals which trigger inflammation and stiffness. This is why it is useful for dogs suffering from arthritis and other joint diseases.

Do I need a prescription from my veterinarian to purchase Novox?

Yes, you can only purchase Novox if you have a valid prescription from a licensed veterinarian.

What questions should I ask my veterinarian when discussing Novox?

  • What examinations and tests will be necessary when my pet’s taking Novox?
  • How long will treatment last?
  • When should I start noticing results?
  • What other treatment options do I have?

What questions should my veterinarian ask me?

  • Does your dog have a history of stomach ulcers or other stomach-related issues?
  • Does your dog have any allergies, to your knowledge?
  • Is your dog currently on any other medications?
  • Does your dog have any heart, kidney, or liver problems?

Is Novox safe for cats?

No. This medication is for dogs only. It is not considered safe for cats.

Is Novox safe for pregnant, lactating, or breeding dogs?

The exact effect Novox has on pregnant, lactating, and breeding dogs is not known. Be sure to consult your veterinarian on this topic if your dog falls under any of said categories.

Should I give Novox to my dog if they’re on other medications?

Novox has the potential to interact with other drugs. This is why you should be upfront with your veterinarian about any other medications your dog is on. This includes vitamins, supplements, steroids, anticoagulants, and antidiabetic drugs.

How do I store this medication?

Novox should always be stored at room temperature; never expose it to high heat. Since this chewable has a very tasty flavor to it, you should keep it locked away; there’s a risk of overdose if your dog consumes more than the daily dose prescribed by your veterinarian.

How often should I administer this medication?

Always follow your veterinarian’s instructions when it comes to administering this medication. The dose they prescribe is the dog you are to give.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

Consult your veterinarian first, but here are general suggestions:

  • If you are giving this drug once a day and you miss a dose, give it within 12 hours of the missed dose. Do not double doses if you are giving the medication once a day as it can be toxic to your dog.
  • If you are giving this drug twice a day and you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember or with the next dose. Otherwise skip the dose and give the next dose at the regularly scheduled time.

What side effects should I be prepared for?
  • Novox is considered safe to use in the vast majority of dogs, and the risk of side effects occurring appears to be less than 1%. Rarely, serious side effects and sometimes death have been reported.
  • The most common side effects reported with Novox use are decreased appetite, vomiting (including blood in the vomit), diarrhea, or blood in the stool. Contact your veterinarian if you notice any of these.
  • This medication may effect the kidneys or the liver. Contact your veterinarian if you notice your dog’s water intake or urinary habits have changed, or if you see any yellowing of the gums, skin or in the white of the eyes.
  • Immediately contact your veterinarian if your dog becomes lethargic, uncoordinated, has seizures, or exhibits changes in behavior.

We have a 90+ pound American Bull with two bad rear knees/joints who is ten years old. She was having a lot of trouble with the stairs going in and out of our house. After starting her on this at two pills a day, one in the morning and evening, she acts like a puppy. Her pain is managed so well that she is even running in the yard again. She has been on Novox for awhile now and I wouldn't think of taking her off of it, as she has had no side effects from it and will hopefully continue not to. What a huge difference it has made in her life. And Lambert seemed to have the best price on it that I could find.
