Description

Flexprofen is a clinically-proven NSAID prescribed by veterinarians to treat pain and inflammation resulting from osteoarthritis, post-op conditions and other causes of pain in dogs. Flexprofen is a true, non-crumbling chewable with a delicious beef flavor dogs love, making it easier to dose.

Uses

Flexprofen (carprofen) Chewable Tablets are 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

As a class, NSAIDS may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney and liver side effects. These are usually mild, but may be serious. Pet owners should discontinue therapy and contact their veterinarian immediately if side effects occur. Evaluation for pre-existing conditions and regular monitoring are recommended for pets on any medication, including Flexprofen. Use with other NSAIDS or corticosteroids should be avoided. See full prescribing information.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your pet is taking before starting this medication.

Precautions

Flexprofen is not recommended for use in dogs with bleeding disorders (e.g., Von Willebrand’s disease), as safety has not been established in dogs with these disorders. The safe use of Flexprofen in animals less than 6 weeks of age, pregnant dogs, dogs used for breeding purposes, or in lactating dogs has not been established. Studies to determine the activity of Flexprofen when administered concomitantly with other protein-bound or similarly metabolized drugs have not been conducted. Drug compatibility should be monitored closely in patients requiring additional therapy. Such drugs commonly used include cardiac, anticonvulsant and behavioral medications. It has been suggested that treatment with carprofen may reduce the level of inhalant anesthetics needed.

FAQ

What is Flexprofen?

Flexprofen is prescribed to relieve pain and inflammation associated with osetoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries in dogs.

How is this medication given?

Consult your veterinarian before giving your pet Flexprofen. Follow the recommended administration on the package, unless otherwise instructed by your veterinarian. Flexprofen may be given with or without food, but food may reduce the chances for stomach problems.

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 Flexprofen 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 Flexprofen you may notice your dogs symptoms returning.
