Novox relieves pain and inflammation caused by arthritis and other joint problems to help your dog maintain regular activity level and quality of life. It is also given to help pain associated with surgeries. Novox is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory or NSAID. These types of drugs inhibit the cell's production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals made by the cells to perform specific functions triggering inflammation. Various NSAIDs work differently on dogs, so if you think your dog is suffering from the pain of arthritis, discuss the use of a NSAID, including Novox, with your veterinarian. Novox is labeled for dogs, but it may also be prescribed for some other species such as small animals and birds. The safe use of Novox in dogs less than 6 weeks of age has not been evalutated.
