  • Pharmaceutical Form

    Solution for Injection. A clear colourless to pale yellow solution

  • Indications

    In the dog it is indicated for the control of post-operative pain and inflammation following orthopaedic and soft tissue (including intra-ocular) surgery. In the cat it is indicated for the treatment of post-operative pain following surgery.

  • Dosage

    In the dog, the recommended dosage is 4mg/kg (1ml/12.5kg) bodyweight, by intravenous or subcutaneous injection, best given pre-operatively, either at the time of premedication or induction of anaesthesia. Clinical trial evidence in dogs suggests that only a single dose of carprofen is required in the first 24 hours peri-operatively- if further analgesia is required within this period, a single half-dose (2mg/kg) of carprofen may be given to dogs as necessary. In the cat, the recommended dosage is 4mg/kg (0.24ml/3kg) bodyweight as a single dose by subcutaneous or intravenous injection, best given pre-operatively at the time of anaesthesia. In the cat, due to the longer half-life, and narrower therapeutic index, particular care should be taken not to exceed the recommended dose and the use of a 1ml graduated syringe is recommended to measure the dose accurately.
