Admininstering Zubrin

Zubrin can be administered to dogs orally to combat pain and inflammation caused by osteoarthritis.

Zubrin (tepoxalin) tablets are a veterinarian-prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used in dogs to reduce pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis. Zubrin tablets are available as seemingly tasteless, rapidly disintegrating tablets that can easily be hidden in food or in a moist treat.

Zubrin is approved only for oral use in dogs. It is not approved or intended for injection or intravenous use, and veterinarians are advised not to use it in that manner. A quote in a story about NSAIDs in the May issue of Veterinary Practice News indicated otherwise.

Zubrin is manufactured by Schering-Plough Animal Health Corporation.
