Deramaxx, an FDA-approved coxib-class nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), is a daily treatment for dogs with pain and inflammation, caused by arthritis, osteoarthritis, or orthopedic surgery. Unlike many NSAIDs that block both the COX-1 and COX-2 enzyme, Deramaxx only blocks the COX-2 enzyme that triggers pain and inflammation. COX-1 enzymes aid in kidney function, blood clotting, and protect the lining of the stomach. Deramaxx is available in beef-flavored chewable tablets is and intended for dogs 4 pounds and over. Deramaxx is not intended for the treatment of cats.
