Deramaxx is a prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, or NSAID. Deracoxib, the active ingredient in Deramaxx, reduces pain and inflammation, particularly when associated with arthritis, soft-tissue and orthopedic surgeries, and dental procedures. This medication is particularly useful for managing the symptoms of chronic osteoarthritis in dogs, and may also help with other conditions affecting the joints, such as hip dysplasia.

The deracoxib content of Deramaxx is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, otherwise known as an NSAID. It is used to treat pain and inflammation, particularly when resulting from arthritis, hip dysplasia, orthopedic surgery, soft-tissue surgery, or dental procedures. Deramaxx is in the class of NSAIDs that inhibits the cyclooxygenase (COX-2) enzymes that prompt inflammation and contribute to joint pain.

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Deramaxx is intended for dogs only. When used to treat pain and inflammation associated with soft-tissue or orthopedic surgery or dental procedures, Deramaxx is indicated for dogs weighing at least 4 lbs. For treatment of pain an inflammation associated with joint problems, this weight restriction is not applicable. Use only as prescribed by your veterinarian.

Have a medical history and physical examination completed by a veterinarian before starting therapy with Deramaxx or any NSAID.

CAUTION: Not for use in dogs with hypersensitivity to deracoxib. Dogs with allergies or sensitivities to other NSAIDs may experience similar problems when taking Deramaxx. Swelling on or around the face, hives, and difficulty breathing are common signs of an allergic reaction.

Tell your veterinarian if your dog is pregnant, lactating, or used for breeding. Also, make sure your veterinarian is aware of any ulcers, bleeding disorders, congestive heart failure, hypertension, liver or kidney disease, or edema. Tell your veterinarian if your dog is taking steroids, other NSAIDS, or any other medications or supplements.

Stomach upset is the most common side effect of Deramaxx. Other more serious side effects can include loss of appetite, anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, mysterious weight gain, bloody, black, or tarry stools, itching, atypical behavior, increased drinking and urine output, water retention, rash, jaundice, lethargy, incoordination, unusual bruising or bleeding, and seizures. These can indicate serious complications; call for prompt communication with your veterinarian.

Talk to your veterinarian before giving your dog other supplements or medications. Many over-the-counter medications contain NSAIDs and when used in combination with Deramaxx can lead to an overdose.

Signs of an overdose include stomachache, headache, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, vision problems, little or no urination, decelerated breathing, and coma. Seek emergency veterinary care if you suspect or know of an overdose.

In case of human ingestion, call your physician or a poison control center immediately for treatment instructions. Have product label on hand when calling or seeking treatment.
