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.
