Carprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, propionic acid derivatives group, with intense anti-inflammatory properties, analgesic and antipyretic effects, which also includes ibuprofen, naproxen and ketoprofen. Acts predominantly by inhibiting cyclooxygenases, with consequent reduction of prostaglandin production and a major role in the pathogenesis of inflammation and pain.
Vitamins B1, B6 and B12 introduced in the composition of the product adjusts the carbohydrates, fats and proteins metabolism and have a rapid trophic action on the nervous system, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular functions, controlling any undesirable effects due to anti-inflammatory component.More info

Overall the product is well tolerated and does not cause side effects, while the observed dose. Dermatologic reactions may occur rarely (pruritus, alopecia, rash), gastrointestinal, liver or kidney disorders (anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea). In the event one of the side effects appears, interrupt the treatment and the animal will be presented for clinical evaluation to the veterinarian.
Carprofen can not be associated with corticosteroids and other non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs because of increasing probability of gastrointestinal adverse effects. Can interact with sulfonamides, salicylates, sufonylurea antidiabetic agents. Vitamin B1 may enhance the activity of neuromuscular blocking agents. At high doses can cause interference with the metabolism of other B vitamins .Vitamin B6 increases the elimination of nitrofurantoin and may reduce or even annihilate antiparkinsonian action of levodopa because of its dopadecarboxilase activation in peripheral tissues of the brain. Vitamin B12 is poorly absorbed when administered to diabetics who are treated with metformin. Also, colchicine decreases intestinal absorption of cyanocobalamin. The combination of anticoagulants and thrombolytic agents with carprofen may aggravate the development of possible ulceration or bleeding lesions of the gastrointestinal mucosa. Carprofen may increase the hypoglycaemic effect of antidiabetics because prostaglandins are directly involved in regulatory mechanisms of glucose metabolism.
Vitamin B1 is degraded of riboflavin and penicillin.
Thiamine can interfere with the absorption and activity of tetracycline.
Vitamin B1 supplements may improve the efficacy of antidepressant medications. Thiamine may inhibit antitumor effect of certain substances used in chemotherapy. Vitamin B1 may help reduce side effects (confusion, muscle weakness, memory impairment) of treatment with scopolamine. Vitamin B6 as well as the other B group vitamins may interfere tetracycline absorption and activity. Some antituberculosis drugs such as cycloserine and isoniazid reduces serum vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 decreases the effectiveness of hydralazine. Penicillamine, a drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis causes a decrease in plasma levels of vitamin B6. Para-aminosalicylic acid can reduce the absorption of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 may interfere with the absorption and functional capacity of tetracycline.
Neomycin may reduce intestinal absorption of vitamin B12. Metformin, oral antidiabetic reduces serum levels of folic acid and vitamin B12, but this process can be counteracted by use of oral calcium supplements. Oral antineoplasics, especially methotrexate, reduce serum levels of vitamin B12.
