DERAMAXX Basics

DERAMAXX is an anti-inflammatory and analgesic drug that belongs to the general class of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is related to other drugs like Celebrex, ibuprofen, aspirin and naproxen. DERAMAXX is used in the treatment of...
  • - pain and inflammation
  • - arthritis
  • - chronic joint pain and stiffness
  • - pain associated with surgeries

DERAMAXX suppresses inflammation and pain by blocking the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals in the body that promote inflammation, pain and fever, increase blood clotting, and protect the lining of the stomach from damaging acids. Prostaglandins are divided into 2 primary groups according to their cyclooxygenase (COX) enzyme.

COX-1 enzymes are responsible for maintaining the function of platelets, kidney functions and protecting the stomach lining from stomach acids. COX-2 enzymes are responsible for producing pain and inflammation associated with trauma or tissue damage.

Most NSAIDs affect both types of prostaglandins; however, DERAMAXX is unique. It can block the enzyme responsible for producing pain and inflammation without affecting the function of the kidneys, platelets and stomach lining.

From Our Vets



DERAMAXX (deracoxib) is an anti-inflammatory drug called a COX-2 inhibitor. When this drug and carprofen (RIMADYL) were introduced, they radically changed the quality of life for our aging and arthritic patients. We use both DERAMAXX and RIMADYL in our practice, and I absolutely believe they are fantastic drugs. When dosed appropriately, they have been used to improve mobility, help relieve post-operative pain, work as adjunctive treatment for certain types of cancer, and generally make our pets feel better. 

Your veterinarian will explain the pros and cons of chronic anti-inflammatory therapies that he or she feels comfortable suggesting. In my experience, dogs really benefit from this group of drugs. Even terminally ill patients seem to respond positively to the usage of these COX-2 inhibitors when used with the opiod medications. I wish that a drug as effective as DERAMAXX was available for aging, arthritic veterinarians!
