An economical and powerful tool for pain management
Vetprofen contains carprofen, the most widely used and clinically proven NSAID in veterinary medicine. Carprofen, like other NSAIDs, works by blocking the production of prostaglandins, the body chemicals that cause inflammation. Most dogs respond quickly to carprofen and become more active and mobile within just a few days of treatment.
At Vétoquinol, products are developed with the veterinarian in mind, providing options that not only represent real progress, but also real value. Vetprofen is a bioequivalent alternative to the name brand carprofen-based NSAID. Vetprofen is an FDA approved prescription only product. Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Carprofen, the active ingredient in Vetprofen, is FDA approved and generally considered safe. Like most drugs, however, carprofen can cause side effects. If side effects are noted, the drug should be discontinued. As with all NSAIDs, it should be given with caution to geriatric patients and monitoring of blood work is recommended.
