Why use Doxidyl (deracoxib) Chewable Tablets?
Doxidyl is a chewable tablet that helps to control pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis and dental surgery in dogs.
How does Doxidyl (deracoxib) Chewable Tablets work?
DOXIDYL tablets are a member of the coxib class of non-narcotic, non-steroidal, cyclooxygenase-inhibiting anti-inflammatory drugs for the control of postoperative pain and inflammation associated with orthopedic and dental surgery and for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs. Data indicate that deracoxib inhibits the production of PGE1 and 6-keto PGF1 by its inhibitory effects on prostaglandin biosynthesis.1 Deracoxib inhibited COX-2 mediated PGE2 production in LPS-stimulated human whole blood.

Administration Guidelines: Postoperative Orthopedic Pain and Inflammation: Administer 1.4 – 1.8 mg per lb per day (3 to 4 mg/kg/day) as a single daily dose, as needed. Do not exceed 7 days of administration. Dogs who require 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 by breaking down larger tablets. Postoperative Dental Pain and Inflammation: Administer 0.45 – 0.91 mg per lb. per 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.
