Canidryl 50mg tablets for dogs are a prescription medication Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) designed for the reduction of pain and inflammation caused by musculo-skeletal disorders and degenerative joint disease.
Each round tablet contains 50mg of Carprofen, which is an effective pain reliever and anti-inflammatory and is often used to manage post-operative pain. The tablets have a grilled meat flavour added to them to make them more appetising to the dog so you may find that they will take the tablet voluntarily.
The tablets are also scored so they can split easily to ensure that an accurate dose can be given. This is also to help aid administration if you need to hide them in their food.
Canidryl 50mg tablets cannot be given to dogs in conjunction with any steroids or any other NSAID's. It is recommended that you combine a NSAID with a joint supplement containing Glucosamine to provide the joints and the cartilage with further support.
All prices include VAT where applicable.
Each grilled meat flavoured tablet contains Carprofen 20 mg/tablet, 50mg/tablet or 100mg/tablet
Grilled meat flavoured tablets. A plain round flat bevelled edge white tablet with a breakline on one side. The tablets can be broken into equal halves.
Reduction of inflammation and pain caused by musculo-skeletal disorders and degenerative joint disease. As a follow up to parenteral analgesia in the management of post-operative pain for soft tissue surgery.
Do not use in cats. Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to active substance or to any of the excipients. Do not use in dogs suffering from cardiac, hepatic or renal disease, where there is a possibility of gastro-intestinal ulceration or bleeding, or where there is evidence of a blood dyscrasia.
Use in dogs less than 6 weeks of age, or in aged dogs, may involve additional risk. If such a use cannot be avoided, dogs may require careful clinical management. Avoid use in any dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive dog, as there is a potential risk of increased renal toxicity.
Concurrent administration of potential nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided. NSAIDs can cause inhibition of phagocytosis and hence in the treatment of inflammatory conditions associated with bacterial infection, appropriate concurrent antimicrobial therapy should be instigated.
Do not administer other NSAIDs concurrently or within 24 hours of each other. Some NSAIDs may be highly bound to plasma proteins and compete with other highly bound drugs, which can lead to toxic effects.
In the event of accidental ingestion of the tablets, seek medical advice and show the doctor the package leaflet. Wash hands after handling the product.
Typical undesirable effects associated with NSAIDs, such as vomiting, soft faeces/diarrhoea, faecal occult blood, loss of appetite and lethargy have been reported. These adverse reactions occur generally within the first treatment week and are in most cases transient and disappear following termination of the treatment but in very rare cases may be serious or fatal. If adverse reactions occur, use of the product should be stopped and the advice of a veterinarian should be sought. As with other NSAIDs there is a risk of rare renal or idiosyncratic hepatic adverse events.
Studies in laboratory species (rat and rabbit) have shown evidence of foetotoxic effects of carprofen at doses close to the therapeutic dose. The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established during pregnancy and lactation. Do not use in pregnant or lactating bitches.
Carprofen must not be administered with glucocorticoids. Refer also to "Special Precautions for Use".
For oral administration. 4 mg carprofen per kg bodyweight per day. An initial dose of 4 mg carprofen per kg bodyweight per day given as a single daily dose or in two equally divided doses may, subject to clinical response, be reduced after 7 days to 2 mg carprofen/kg bodyweight/day given as a single dose. Duration of treatment will be dependant upon the response seen. Long term treatment should be under regular veterinary supervision. To extend analgesic and anti-inflammatory cover post-operatively, parenteral preoperative treatment may be followed with Carprofen tablets at 4mg/kg/day for 2 days. Do not exceed the stated dose.
No signs of toxicity appeared when dogs were treated with Carprofen at levels up to 6 mg/kg twice daily for 7 days (3 times the recommended dose rate of 4mg/kg) and 6mg/kg once daily for a further 7 days (1.5 the recommended dose rate of 4 mg/kg). There is no specific antidote for carprofen overdosage but general supportive therapy, as applied to clinical overdosage with NSAIDs should be applied.
