Ultimate Guide to Deramaxx

Meet the NSAID Arthritis Treatment: Deramaxx!

Deramaxx is an FDA-approved veterinary-prescribed nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that relieves pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA), and post-surgery. Deramaxx for dogs is a daily, beef-flavored chew oral tablet that also aids in kidney function, blood clotting, and stomach health.

How does Deramaxx for dogs work?

Deramaxx is a medication with one active ingredient - Deracoxib (brand Deramaxx generic name), which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is used post-operative (e.g., orthopedic surgery and dental procedures) to reduce pain as well as for the relief treatment of osteoarthritis and other painful conditions.

However, Deracoxib is a different kind of NSAID. To explain, most NSAIDs belong to a class of medications that inhibit the COX-1 enzyme that is necessary for many normal body functions. Deracoxib belongs to the coxib-class of medications that block the COX-2 enzyme that triggers inflammation and contributes to pain in arthritic joints.

How is Deramaxx for dogs administered?

Deramaxx is a single daily dose administered orally and provides your dog with 24-hour protection from pain and inflammation. It is a scored, non-steroidal oral tablet and is a tasty beef-flavored chew that can be given with or without food (with plenty of water available nearby). Treated dogs take the oral chew tablet for a consecutive seven days.

Dogs receive .45 mg to .91 mg/lb./day for osteoarthritis (OA) pain and inflammation. For example, due to the severity, a 30-pound dog will receive a 13.5 mg to 27.3 mg tablet. Dogs with postoperative orthopedic pain have a usual single daily dose of 1.4 mg to 1.8 mg/lb. Another example, Deramaxx dosage for 70-pound dogs would be 98 to 126 mg.

Consult your veterinarian for an as-needed dosage. Deramaxx tablets available are 12mg, 25 mg, 75 mg, and 100mg depending on the strength needed.

What are the precautions of which you should be aware?

Deramaxx (Deracoxib) should not be used in dogs:

  • with hypersensitivity to sulfonamides
  • that are allergic to it or drugs like it (i.e., aspirin or other NSAIDs)
  • that have bloody stools or vomit
  • that have a loss of appetite
  • that have heart complications, liver dysfunction, or kidney disease
  • that are dehydrated or are predisposed to dehydration
  • that are breeding, pregnant, or nursing

Deramaxx (Deracoxib) should be used with caution in dogs:

  • that have or have had stomach ulcers
  • that are taking diuretics (e.g., furosemide)
  • that are geriatric
  • that have a bleeding disorder
  • that have heart disease
  • that use other NSAIDs or corticosteroids

Consult with your veterinarian or pharmacist before asking for or receiving a prescription. Tell your vet if your dog has high blood pressure, blood disorders, and anything listed above.

Tell your vet is taking any of the following medications: aspirin, steroid, any other NSAID, an ACE inhibitor, or an over the counter allergy or cold medicine. It's best to avoid any negative interactions with other drugs that can cause additional side effects or reactions. Your vet may need a physical examination and their medical history.

What are the potential Deramaxx side effects of which you should be aware?

Side effects of Deracoxib in dogs, like other NSAIDs, might occur affecting the gastrointestinal tract, such as vomiting, diarrhea, blood in stool or urine, decreased appetite, and weight gain or loss.

Other adverse reactions experienced might be abdominal pain, bloody vomit, skin afflictions (e.g., pruritus or unordinary bruising), yellowing of eyes, color changes, decreased activity, lethargy, incoordination, and behavioral changes (e.g., aggression, changes in drinking or urination habits, etc.). Digestive, kidney, or liver effects can also occur.

Consult a veterinarian immediately if any of the above effects occur.
