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. Customers may receive this drug under the names Rimadyl, Novox, Carpaquin, Quellin, Vetprofen.


Carprofen is indicated for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries in dogs.

Possible Side Effects

Carprofen Tablets should not be used in dogs exhibiting previous hypersensitivity to carprofen.

Drug & Food Interactions

No known drug interactions have been reported.


This class of drug may be associated with gastrointestinal, renal and hepatic toxicity. When nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs inhibit prostaglandins that cause inflammation they may also inhibit those prostaglandins which maintain normal homeostatic function. This may result in clinically significant disease in pets with the underlying or pre-existing disease more often than in healthy pets. The use of parenteral fluids during surgery should be considered to reduce the potential risk of renal complications when using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs perioperatively.

NOTE: For Generic Medications, picture displayed may not depict actual product. Generic medications may vary from one order to the next by size, color and shape depending on manufacturer. Customers may receive the same drug under the names Rimadyl, Novox, Carpaquin, Quellin, Vetprofen.

Also available in chewable tablets.

What is Carprofen?

Carprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication that helps relieve the pain and inflammation that occurs with arthritis in dogs. It also helps bring relief from other joint problems and can help your pet to feel better after surgery. Carprofen is the generic alternative to Rimadyl, Novox, and Vetprofenl.

How is this medication given?

Carprofen can be given once a day or it can be split into twice daily dosing. Your veterinarian will determine the dosage of medication and the frequency at which it should be given. Give this medication by mouth (orally). Gastrointestinal upset including vomiting and diarrhea may be minimized if Carprofen is given with food. Carprofen should be given at the lowest dose necessary to help your dog to feel better. You should never administer Carprofen to a pet other than the one for which it has been prescribed for.

How does it work?

Chemicals in the body called prostaglandins are reduced with Carprofen. Since prostaglandins trigger inflammation, minimizing them helps decrease inflammation and pain that occurs as a result of arthritis, surgery, and other joint conditions.

What results can I expect?

Symptoms of arthritis include stiffness, trouble walking, and difficulty rising. These symptoms can be relieved with Carprofen although this medication will not cure arthritis since there is no known cure for this chronic condition. Your dog should start to feel better although results vary in each individual. If you discontinue Carprofen you may notice your dogs symptoms returning.

  • This generic is such a help!

    By on

    My Faith has arthritis in his spine and this allows him to have relief from pain in his day. I give him half of a 100 mg tablet twice a day by putting it in a little canned dog food...Royal Canin low fat gastro. That way he doesn't have to swallow it or chew it up. He just sucks it down like he does his food! The chewables are just so much more expensive so this works as it hides the pill. And now so glad Chewy has this service...had been using another website with really slow delivery. Love the service I get from Chewy!! You guys remember Jesus loves our fur babies as well as us!

  • Awesome arthritis meds

    By on

    My senior dog who's extremely active showed sudden signs of arthritis on her front leg this fall. It was so severe I thought it was broken. I was afraid I would have to eventually put her down because every step was excruciating pain. She's been on this a few weeks and is jumping again. She is still a little stiff sometimes but not crying. It's raining today and she's happy. I only give her half when needed combined with a daily joint pill.

  • Less expensive option for Novox

    By on

    I am so thrilled that I am able to order this from Chewy. My dog takes Novox for arthritis and I had been buying it from her vet. At her last visit, I requested a prescription so I could shop around. I found the generic equivalent on Chewy and I am saving a lot of money for what is the same medication. It even looks the same as the Novox tablet. Mailing in the actual prescription added some time to the order, so if you're in a rush, take that into account. But Chewy was in contact with me the entire time, making sure that everything was going smoothly. Once it was processed, I received the medication within two days. I'm very happy with my purchase.

  • Works great

    By on

    So excited about the new chewy prescription service! I was using another online service and was paying a lot more. I ordered this generic version of Rimadyl for my pup due to the extremely low price and did not realize that they are not the chewable tablets. But.... I decided to get some pill pockets and try them out and my dog is actually doing much better on the pills than the chewable version. So a mistaken order turned out to be a better choice. Thanks chewy!

  • My old dog can move again!

    By on

    I adopted a 13 yr old dog who's spine is fused with arthritis. Carprofen allows her to be able to move again almost like what she may have been like as a puppy. I am so grateful to see this as I know we don't have much time left with her and we just wanted to make her last days comfortable. To see her go from not being able to move to running around makes me so happy! We may get more time with her than we thought when we adopted Gracie.

  • Carprofen Tablets

    By on

    Chewy made it so so easy to order my girl's meds! My vet usually charges over a dollar a pill, and Chewy's price is less than half of that. It arrived quickly (as always) and is just what I expected. My Daisy is 15-year-old Labrador retriever and has severe arthritis and degenerative hip disease. The carprofen makes a MASSIVE difference in how she feels and her mobility.

  • Tears Of Joy

    By on

    I literally cried tears of joy. I was spending $150-$200 A month on meds for my senior dog. I can now help her manage her pain without thinking ... I need to save these for a really bad day when she needs them most. Thank you so much Chewy for giving me more time with my beloved baby girl. She thanks you for the ability to afford to consistently manage her needs.

  • Love Chewy.com!!

    By on

    I think your company is the greatest! The issue with this particular product is that it is a small, oblong tablet and I have to cut it in fourths. Just not happening without the pill completely crumbling and the pill cutter splitting apart. Hopefully there is another size/shape available that will be easier to divide.

  • Good for the savings

    By on

    As Rimadyl has the flavor dogs like and will gladly eat. This is a medication tablet the dog is reluctant to take has to be given with food. Not quite sure if it works the same as rimadyl my pet has severe arthritis. And it helps them.

  • Chewy.com makes it so easy!

    By on

    I compared the price of my dogs prescription with my vet and Chewy.com and it was HALF the price! I was so happy with the ease of the process. Chewy contacted my vet for approval and that was it! I have used Chewy for years for my dogs food and now will be using them for perscriptions!! I LOVE Chewy!!
