How Much Is Too Much Carprofen for Dogs?
Answer

These adverse directions can include tiredness, diarrhea, gastrointestinal infections, temporary lack of appetite, mild vomiting, and constipation. If any of the pre-mentioned maladies are found in your pet it is recommended that you immediately contact your pet's veterinarian for further medication and treatment.

Answer

No, Carprofen is not typically used to manage labor pain in female dogs. The use of pain medications during labor is generally not recommended, as it can interfere with the natural labor process and can have potential risks to the puppies. However, in some cases, such as in emergency situations or when labor is prolonged and difficult, your veterinarian may determine that pain management is necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of the mother and puppies. In these cases, your veterinarian may use other medications that are specifically formulated for use during labor.

Can Carprofen be used to treat hip dysplasia in dogs?
Answer

Can Carprofen be used to treat inflammation in dogs?
Answer

Can Carprofen be used in dogs of all ages?
Answer

No, Carprofen is approved for use in dogs over 6 weeks of age. However, the use of Carprofen in dogs of all ages should be based on individual patient factors and should be determined by a veterinarian.

Can Carprofen be used in dogs with liver or kidney disease?
Answer

Yes, but with caution. The use of Carprofen in dogs with liver or kidney disease should be determined by a veterinarian, as these dogs may be more sensitive to the potential side effects of the medication. This is because Carprofen is primarily metabolized by the liver, and is eliminated from the body by the kidneys.

Carprofen

Signs of Carprofen intolerance may include appetite loss, vomiting, and diarrhea, possibly indicating side effects involving the digestive tract, liver, or kidneys. Some side effects of Carprofen may occur without warning, and in rare cases, result in hospitalization or death. If symptoms occur, discontinue Carprofen and consult your veterinarian.

Consult your veterinarian before adding other medications, including vitamins and supplements, other NSAIDs (e.g., aspirin, etodolac (EtoGesic), deracoxib (Deramaxx), firocoxib (Previcox), tepoxalin (Zubrin), and meloxicam (Metacam); steroids (e.g., prednisone, dexamethasone, Medrol, triamcinolone), methotrexate, furosemide (Lasix) , digoxin, phenobarbital, oral anticoagulants (heparin, warfarin), enalapril, phenylpropanolamine, sulfa drugs, and some oral antidiabetic drugs, since interactions may occur.

Great price...but if you have to split the pill...try something else
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My vet prescribed this for my dog. 1/2 pill per day. The pills I got from the vet were great! Easy to split as they were large pills. In trying to split these pills, there's no clean cut, not easy to split in half and many disintegrate when I cut them. So, my dog is not getting even doses at all. Hoping for an alternative.

My dog got sick from this Carprofen generic version
VERIFIED PURCHASER

Our dog got diarrhea from this generic form of Carprofen 100mg. He usually takes 2x 50mg per day of the version the Vet prescribed. Weโ€™re not sure if the chewable ingredient added to the dose is causing this symptom but we are going back to the Vetโ€™s manufacturer and not using this generic version. This was the only thing added to Cappyโ€™s regiment after his TPLO surgery.
