What is Vetprofen?

Vetprofen is a generic equivalent for Rimadyl (carprofen). Vetprofen, or carprofen, treats pain and inflammation due to chronic arthritis, limping, lameness, decreased activity or exercise, stiffness, decreased movement of joints, and pain following surgery. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is related to aspirin and ibuprofen. Like other NSAIDs, this medication works by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals in the body that promote inflammation, pain, and fever.
