Vetprofen® (carprofen) contains 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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
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 Vetprofen. Use with other NSAIDS or corticosteroids should be avoided.
