Description

Quellin is a non-steroidal medication prescribed to treat pain and inflammation in dogs suffering from osteoarthritis or arthritis. It is formulated to help control pain and inflammation associated with surgery as well as arthritis and other joint abnormalities. Plus, it comes in an easy-to-feed, soft chewable tablet.

Uses

For the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries.

Possible Side Effects

The most common side effect of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug is stomach upset. Stomach ulcers may develop and could lead to loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, dark, tarry or, bloody stools or constipation. Other side effects may also include thirst, abnormal urination, and yellowing of the gums, skin or eyes.

Drug & Food Interactions

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

Precautions

Dogs that have experienced adverse reactions from one nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) may experience adverse reactions from another NSAID. Carprofen is not recommended for use in dogs with bleeding disorders, as safety has not been established in dogs with these disorders. The safe use of carprofen in animals less than 6 weeks of age, pregnant dogs, dogs used for breeding purposes, or in lactating dogs has not been established.

FAQ

My dog has a food allergy. What is the protein source used in Quellin?

The Quellin soft chew is a proprietary formulation that contains no animal protein. Note that the formula does contain soy and should not be given to dogs known or suspected to have an allergy to soy or soy protein.

How quickly should I see results with my dog?

In most dogs, improvement can be seen in a matter of days.

Is the dosing the same as with other carprofen products?

Yes, Quellin (Carprofen) soft chews and Rimadyl both contain the same active ingredient in the same amounts for a given strength. In other words, a 75mg quellin chew may be substituted for any FDA-approved, 75 mg carprofen tablet.

Can I use Quellin with other medications?

Quellin should not be used with certain other medications. Talk to your veterinarian about all the medicines that you are giving or plan to give to your dog, including non-prescription drugs.

Can I split the Quellin chews?

The drug is evenly distributed in the soft chew matrix and they are scored, which facilitates splitting whole chews to give the dose prescribed by your veterinarian.

I am switching from a medication. Do I need to wait to start Quellin?

Quellin soft chews are bioequivalent to Rimadyl tablets of the same milligram strength. As such, they can be used immediately as directed by your veterinarian. However, carprofen (the drug in quellin) and other NSAIDS are entirely different medicines, are not interchangeable. Changes in drugs, dose, and dosing intervals should only be made under the direction of your dog’s veterinarian.

  • Quellin soft chews

    By on

    I had my dog on Quellin prior to purchasing from Chewy. Chewy has made it easier for me to care for my old friend by delivering to me and a more reasonable price. He is happy, now he is getting soft chews. He seems to prefer these over the hard ones.
