Naproxen is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for the treatment of muscle pain and soft tissue injury in horses. It helps reduce pain, swelling, and joint stiffness caused by arthritis, tendonitis, or bursitis. Naproxen also helps provide pain and inflammation relief from musculoskeletal conditions. Lameness and muscle soreness can also be treated with Naproxen.
Naproxen, which is an NSAID, works by blocking the production of substances in the body that cause inflammation.
Carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of naproxen and other treatment options before deciding to use naproxen tablets. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals.
All Weights: The usual dose is 4.55 mg/lb (10 mg/kg) twice daily or as directed by your veterinarian.
Avoid giving to horses with liver disease, kidney disease or gastrointestinal problems. Do not give to horses with a hypersensitivity to Naproxen or other NSAIDs.
