Description

Quellin (Carprofen) is indicated for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries in dogs.

  • Easy to administer - Most dogs readily take quellin™ from the owner's hand/no need for fill pouches
  • Easily divided -Each chew is scored for easy dosing
  • Accurate dosing - Active ingredient is evenly distributed throughout the chew matrix
  • Soft, savory chews - Encourage at-home compliance

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful condition caused by "wear and tear" of cartilage and other parts of the joints that may result in the following changes or signs in your dog:

  • Limping or lameness
  • Decreased activity or exercise (reluctance to stand, climb stairs, jump or run, or difficulty in performing these activities)
  • Stiffness or decreased movement of joints. To control surgical pain (e.g., for surgeries such as spays, ear procedures or orthopedic repairs) your veterinarian may administer quellin before the procedure and recommend that your dog be treated for several days after going home.

Prescription Required

Directions

Always provide Client Information Sheet with prescription. Carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of carprofen and other treatment options before deciding to use carprofen. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response. The recommended dose for oral administration to dogs is 2 mg/lb of body weight daily. The total daily dose may be administered as 2 mg/lb of body weight once daily or divided and administered as 1 mg/lb twice daily. For the control of postoperative pain, administer approximately 2 hours before the procedure. Quellin soft chewable tablets are scored, and dosage should be calculated in half-tablet increments. Soft chewable tablets can be halved by holding the tablet on each side of the score line and pressing up in the middle to break the tablet into two pieces. Care should be taken to ensure that the dog consumes the complete dose.

View Quellin Drug Facts Sheet.

Effectiveness: Confirmation of the effectiveness of Quellin for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, and for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries, was demonstrated in 5 placebo-controlled, masked studies examining the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effectiveness of carprofen in various breeds of dogs.

Separate placebo-controlled, masked, multicenter field studies confirmed the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effectiveness of carprofen caplets when dosing at 2 mg/lb once daily or when divided and administered at 1 mg/lb twice daily. In these 2 field studies, dogs diagnosed with osteoarthritis showed statistically significant overall improvement based on lameness evaluations by the veterinarian and owner observations when administered carprofen at labeled doses.

Separate placebo-controlled, masked, multicenter field studies confirmed the effectiveness of carprofen caplets for the control of postoperative pain when dosed at 2 mg/lb once daily in various breeds of dogs. In these studies, dogs presented for ovariohysterectomy, cruciate repair, and aural surgeries were administered carprofen preoperatively and for a maximum of 3 days (soft tissue) or 4 days (orthopedic) postoperatively. In general, dogs administered carprofen showed a statistically significant reduction in pain scores compared to controls.

What is Quellin?

Quellin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is used to reduce pain and inflammation (soreness) due to osteoarthritis and pain following surgery in dogs. Quellin is a prescription drug for dogs. It is available as a soft chewable tablet and is given to dogs by mouth.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful condition caused by "wear and tear" of cartilage and other parts of the joints that may result in the following changes or signs in your dog:

  • Limping or lameness
  • Decreased activity or exercise (reluctance to stand, climb stairs, jump or run, or difficulty in performing these activities)
  • Stiffness or decreased movement of joints To control surgical pain (e.g., for surgeries such as spays, ear procedures or orthopedic repairs) your veterinarian may administer quellin before the procedure and recommend that your dog be treated for several days after going home.

What kind of results can I expect when my dog is on quellin?

While quellin is not a cure for osteoarthritis, it can relieve the pain and inflammation of OA and improve your dog's mobility.

  • Response varies from dog to dog but can be quite dramatic
  • In most dogs, improvement can be seen in a matter of days.
  • If quellin is discontinued or not given as directed, your dog's pain and inflammation may come back.

Who should not take quellin?

Your dog should not be given quellin if he/she:

  • Has had an allergic reaction to carprofen, the active ingredient of quellin.
  • Has had an allergic reaction to aspirin or other NSAIDs (for example deracoxib, etodolac, firocoxib, meloxicam, phenylbutazone or tepoxalin) such as hives, facial swelling, or red or itchy skin.

Quellin should be given to dogs only. Cats should not be given quellin. Call your veterinarian immediately if your cat receives quellin. People should not take quellin. Keep quellin and all medicines out of reach of children. Call your physician immediately if you accidentally take quellin.

How to give quellin to your dog.

Quellin should be given according to your veterinarian's instructions. Your veterinarian will tell you what amount of quellin is right for your dog and for how long it should be given. Most dogs will take quellin soft chewable tablets right out of your hand or the soft chewable tablet can be placed on the mouth. Quellin may be given with or without food.

What to tell/ask your veterinarian before giving quellin.

Talk to your veterinarian about:

  • The signs of OA you have observed for example limping, stiffness).
  • The importance of weight control and exercise in the management of OA.
  • What tests might be done before quellin is prescribed.
  • How often your dog may need to be examined by your veterinarian.
  • The risks and benefits of using quellin.

Tell your veterinarian if your dog has ever had the following medical problems:

  • Experienced side effects from quellin or other NSAIDs, such as aspirin
  • Digestive upset (vomiting and/or diarrhea)
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • A bleeding disorder (for example, Von Willebrand's disease)

Tell your veterinarian about:

  • Any other medical problems or allergies that your dog has now or has had.
  • All medicines that you are giving your dog or plan to give your dog, including those you can get without a prescription.

Tell your veterinarian if your dog is:

  • Pregnant, nursing or if you plan to breed your dog.

What are the possible side effects that may occur in my dog during quellin therapy?

Quellin, like other drugs, may cause some side effects. Serious but rare side effects have been reported in dogs taking NSAIDs, including quellin. Serious side effects can occur with or without warning and in rare situations result in death.

The most common NSAID-related side effects generally involve the stomach (such as bleeding ulcers), and liver or kidney problems. Look for the following side effects that can indicate your dog may be having a problem with quellin or may have another medical problem:

  • Decrease or increase in appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Change in bowel movements (such as diarrhea, or black, tarry or bloody stools)
  • Change in behavior (such as decreased or increased activity level, incoordination, seizure or aggression)
  • Yellowing of gums, skin, or whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • Change in drinking habits (frequency, amount consumed)
  • Change in urination habits (frequency, color, or smell)
  • Change in skin (redness, scabs, or scratching)

It is important to stop therapy and contact your veterinarian immediately if you think your dog veterinarian immediately if you think your dog has a medical problem or side effect from quellin therapy. If you have additional questions about possible side effects, talk to your veterinarian.

Can quellin be given with other medicines?

Quellin should not be given with other NSAIDs (for example, aspirin, deracoxib, etodolac, firocoxib, meloxicam, tepoxalin) or steroids (for example, cortisone, dexamethasone, prednisone, triamcinolone).

Tell your veterinarian about all medicines you have given your dog in the past, and any medicines that you are planning to give with quellin. This should include other medicines that you can get without a prescription. Your veterinarian may want to check that all of your dog's medicines can be given together.

What do I do in case my dog eats more than the prescribed amount of quellin?

Contact your veterinarian immediately if your dog eats more than the prescribed amount of quellin.

Quelling works great for my greyhound
I have a greyhound who is a retired racer. His leg was broken on the track and pinned. When I adopted him, an X-ray was taken which showed arthritis around the pinned area. The vet prescribed Carprofen 75mg twice a day. In the five years since he rescued me, I have tried various Carprofen products. I have found Quellin to work the best. The price was right and Entirely Pets Pharmacy has been great in contacting my vet for refills plus shipping this medication quickly. The reason for the 4 star is although it says "soft chewables", my greyhounds refuses to eat it by itself. It does hide better in his food than caplets, but I do not feed him 12 hours apart. I have to disguise it in a small amount of food.
ProsWorks great
ConsGreyhound does like smell to chew without being hidden in food.

This Medicine is Great!
My dog is 12 years ago. He was whining a lot and barely moving around. Limping. About a week after starting the medicine, we noticed that he seemed to feel better; now he's feeling a lot better. Moves around easily.

Arthritis Pain Controlled
Our vet prescribed this medication for our 13 year old dog with arthritic back legs. He could barely walk to the end of our block and looked like he was in pain just getting up and down. Since he's been taking it a couple of months he's back to running up the stairs and walking up hill without hesitation. We've cut back the dosage like the vet suggested and he's still doing well. We didn't notice any side effects, either.
