Youll feel so much better when your dogs arthritis, joint, and post-surgical pain is relieved with Deramaxx. Deramaxx helps to maintain regular activity and quality of life by helping to decrease the inflammation that causes arthritis in dogs.

What is Deramaxx?Deramaxx is in a class of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs).

What are the benefits of Deramaxx?
  • Helps relieve pain and inflammation associated with dog arthritis and other joint abnormalities.
  • Decreases pain associated with surgery.
  • Beef flavored, scored tablets makes Deramaxx easy to administer.

Formulated for: dogs (greater than 4 lbs) and should not be used in cats.
How is this medication given? Deramaxx is a tablet that is given orally (by mouth) once daily. Giving this medication with food can help reduce the chance of stomach/intestinal side effects. Only give this medication to the pet for which it was prescribed. For long-term use, the goal is to give the lowest dose needed to provide relief.

How does this medication work? Deramaxx is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that works by inhibiting the cell's production of chemicals that trigger inflammation. Arthritis in dogs and other forms of orthopedic and post-operative pain can be relieved with Deramaxx.

I have a 9-year-old Great Dane and she is doing great since starting on this product. She takes half of a 227 mg tablet a day and it has done wonders for her. She was having a lot of hip pain, but is now her playful self again. The tablets do crumble a bit when cut in half, but if you use a pill splitter it works better. We tried a couple of other meds, but she had some vomiting with them. We have used Deramaxx for roughly a year and she is doing GREAT! I can honestly say it has extended her life for another year and given her quality of life to boot!
