Osteoarthritis or pain following surgery can debilitate even the most active dogs. Vetprofen contains carprofen, the most widely-used and clinically-proven NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) in veterinary medicine.
- Most dogs respond quickly to carprofen
- Dogs usually become more active and mobile within just a few days of treatment
- Carprofen works by blocking the production of prostaglandins, the chemicals that cause inflammation
- Available in flavored tablet or caplet form
- Tablets and caplets are scored for fexible dosing management
- Vetprofen is an FDA- approved prescription-only product
Carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of Vetprofen and other treatment options before deciding to use Vetprofen. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response.
- The recommended dosage for oral administration to dogs is 2 mg per pound of body weight daily
- The total daily dose may also be divided and administered as 1 mg per pound twice daily
- For the control of postoperative pain, administer approximately 2 hours before the procedure
- Caplets are scored and dosage should be calculated in half-caplet increments
Each caplet and tablet contains carprofen
- 25 mg, 75 mg, or 100 mg
