Vetprofen contains carprofen, the most widely used and clinically proven NSAID in veterinary medicine. Carprofen, like other NSAIDs, works by blocking the production of prostaglandins, the body chemicals that cause inflammation. Most dogs respond quickly to carprofen and become more active and mobile within just a few days of treatment.
  • Caplets with convenient, once-daily dosing
  • Steroid-free
  • Effective against the symptoms of canine arthritis
  • FDA approved
Dosage: The recommended dosage for oral administration to dogs is 2 mg/lb (4.4 mg/kg) of body weight daily. The total daily dose may be administered as 2 mg/lb of body weight once daily or divided and administered as 1 mg/lb (2.2 mg/kg) 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. Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use. Consult a physician in cases of accidental ingestion by humans. For use in dogs only. Do not use in cats. All dogs should undergo a thorough history and physical examination before initiation of NSAID therapy. Appropriate laboratory tests to establish hematological and serum biochemical baseline data prior to, and periodically during, administration of any NSAID should be considered. Owners should be advised to observe for signs of potential drug toxicity (see Information for Dog Owners, Adverse Reactions, Animal Safety and Post-Approval Experience). Storage: Store at controlled room temperature 15°C - 30°C (59°F - 86°F).
  • Once-daily dosing provides 24 hours of relief from osteoarthritic or post-surgical pain
