Key Benefits

  • Controls pain and inflammation
  • 24-hour control from one dose
  • Effective treatment for canine arthritis, specifically controlling chronic OA
  • Non-steroidal
  • Tasty beef-flavored chewable tablet, making administration easy

How It Works

Deramaxx is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that belongs to the COX-2 inhibitor class of medications. Deramaxx is different from other NSAIDs because at recommended doses it blocks the COX-2 enzyme, not the COX-1 enzyme. While the COX-1 enzyme is necessary for many normal body functions, COX-2 enzymes trigger inflammation and contribute to pain in arthritic joints.

Dosage and Administration

Osteoarthritis Pain and Inflammation

Administer 0.45-0.91 mg/lb/day (1 to 2 mg/kg/day) as a single daily dose, as needed. Dogs needing a dose of less than 12.5 mg can only be accurately dosed through use of the 12 mg tablets, which can be broken in half to provide 6 mg. Do not attempt to accurately dose smaller dogs through the use of breaking larger tablets. Inaccurate dosing may result in adverse drug events.

Postoperative Orthopedic Pain and Inflammation

Admninister 1.4-1.8 mg/lb/day (3 to 4 mg/kg/day) as a single dialy dose, as needed, not to exceed 7 days of administration. Dogs needing a dose of less than 12.5 mg can only be accurately dosed through use of the 12 mg tablet, which can be broken in half to provide 6 mg. Do not attempt to accurately dose smaller dogs through the use of breaking larger tablets. Inaccurate dosing may result in adverse drug events.

Postoperative Dental Pain And Inflammation

Administer 0.45-0.91 mg/lb/day (1 to 2 mg/kg/day) as a single daily dose, for 3 days. The first dose should be given approximately 1 hour prior to dental surgery and subsequent doses should be given daily for up to two additional treatments. Dogs needing a dose of less than 12.5 mg can only be accurately dosed through use of the 12 mg tablet, which can be broken in half to provide 6 mg. Do not attempt to accurately dose smaller dogs through the use of breaking larger tablets. Inaccurate dosing may result in adverse drug events.

Since DERAMAXX tablet bioavailability is greatest when taken with food, postprandial administration is preferable. However, DERAMAXX tablets have been shown to be effective under both fed and fasted conditions; therefore, they may be administered in the fasted state if necessary. For postoperative orthopedic and dental pain, administer DERAMAXX tablets prior to the procedure. Tablets are scored and dosage should be calculated in half-tablet increments. In clinical practice it is recommended to adjust to the individual patient dose while continuing to monitor the dog's status until a minimum effective dose has been reached.

My picky dog loves Joint Max
April 28, 2020
Great combo Deramaxx and joint max. We hide pills in the chews that our picky dog wont eat. Doesn't like peanut butter or pill pockets but loves these chews.
ProsGreat tasting... at least my dog thinks so. And seems to help.
ConsA little pricey.

Not sure how to review a prescribed drug but this has helped both of my dogs that are on it. They are older dogs dealing with some arthritis and one with hip dysplasia. Both get up and moving with much more ease after stating this.

Entirely Pets Pharmacy does in fact contact your vet to be sure this is actually prescribed for your pet and they do it very quickly. And since my dogs will be on this forever finding a better price than my vet can provide me was imperative and EP came up with the best price.

My 13 yr old Rottie has to have this medication on a daily basis. It's not cheap, but it cost way more from our vet. I was so,pleased to find it thru Entirely Pets pharmacy at such a good price. The service from contacting the vet to filling the script & getting it to me has been flawless. I am very pleased! Thank yo!

Sammy will only eat this drug if I cut it in quarter pieces and hide it in a beef treat. It may be due to the nasal cancer changing his taste buds, or he is just really picky.
ProsEasy to fill this order.
ConsHe does seem to suffer from one of the side-effects which is dizziness. So look out for sign of that in your pet.
