Carprofen is prescribed to relieve pain and inflammation caused by arthritis and other joint problems, so you can help your dog maintain her regular activity levels and quality of life. Carprofen may also help to reduce pain associated with surgeries and other painful conditions, and works by limiting your dog's production of prostaglandins, which are substances that can trigger inflammation. And since these uncoated tablets have a wag-worthy beef flavor, your dog won't mind taking his medication!

We have been getting Carprofin from our vet for several years. Our dog is 10-years old, and we recently decided to get this, which we thought was the same as what the vet gave us....just flavored. It's convenient just to have it shipped right? We gave him 3-doses, and out of no where has is starting to have seizures!!!!!!!!!! It's been a week since we discontinued it, and is still having seizures. He has never has a seizure before at any time in his life! The first one was a Grand Mal, the others have been about a minute long. This is one of the biggest regrets of my life. (To watch a dog foam at the mouth, jerk uncontrollably, be so disoriented, etc., is someone I don't wish on anyone.
I think my bulldog is an absolute foodie and will eat almost anything. He sure doesn't seem to like whatever flavor has been put into your generic Carprofen. I tried 3 times today to get him to eat it, but he kept spitting it out. I mixed it in with his dog food tonight and it is finally gone. Otherwise, it will be shoved down his throat like most o fhis medicines need to be or you could figure out what would be a better flavor to enhance the taste of this drug. It does, by the way, decrease his painful joints and helps him to enjoy more walking than before. .
My boy Sam is about 16 to 17 yrs old, he's a chi wienie. He started limping some so I started him on as joint supplement, it seemed to help for awhile but I noticed him hopping on three legs only. So I gave my vet a call and was told to about the name brand, but it's a chunk of change, so I was told to try the generic. Thank You , LORD !! It's working fine. I give half a tablet twice a day mixed in his meals. The people at both my vets and Chewy were VERY Helpful. Shipping was pretty quick too.
My dog went to the vet about a month ago and after x-rays and seeing calcium building up between the vertebrates on the spine carprofen was recommended. After a few days a huge difference was seen in my dog's behavior and movement and bowel movements. Switched to these Now, she is back to having difficulty moving, sleeping alot again, and having bowel movements while walking without even seeming to notice it. These are also impossible to cut. Bought a pill cutter and they still crumble meaning waste because you have no idea what MG level is there.
I volunteer three days weekly at the San Diego Humane Society, the finest no kill facility in the U.S. Daily, we have guests donating food from Chewy. If you or your pet don't like something from Chewy, they will give you a full refund and suggest you donate the item (usually food that your pet didn't like) to a local animal shelter. Aside from their benevolence, Chewy prices are very reasonable and a great place to shop for your pet's needs. I couldn't recommend them any higher - I would give 10 stars if I could.
These 100mg Carprofen pills are offered at a "great" price, but! There is a line on one side of the tablet but the pill(s) do not break "cleanly" on this line. The pill(s) all just break up into small pieces. Also, if these Carprofen pills are "actually" flavored, it is a very weak and/or poor flavoring.
99% of dosing instruction when it comes to this 75mg tablet is for 1/2 tab a day for our pups. I do have a tablet splitter, but each pill I attempt to split either fragments into chunks or just becomes powder. Chewy says that that is just the way it is. Really Chewy???
My dog had surgery for torn ACL in his knee. He was taking caplets prior to surgery and I switched to the chewable tabs 3 weeks post op. Instantly after switch he began limping again and not bearing weight. I tried a different batch wondering if pills were damaged by heat or something and still the same results. Switched back to caplets and instantly he stopped limping. They might be good for some but just be aware not all tablets are the same. I will stay with caplets now.
My dog's prescription required me to cut these pills in half. They do not come in the proper dosage otherwise. It is impossible to cut them as they crumble (even in a pill cutter from my vet). Chewy stated they would contact me and refund the cost. That was two weeks ago and I have not been contacted or refunded.
I have to give my dog half a tablet twice a day. If I do not cut it perfectly in my pill cutter half of it crumbles into little pieces. Fortunately it's flavored so she will lick the crumbs out of my hands.
