Tepoxalin (brand name Zubrin)[1] is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug approved for veterinary use in the United States and many other countries.[2] It is primarily used to reduce inflammation and relief of pain caused by musculoskeletal disorders such as hip dysplasia and arthritis.[3]

As of 2017, tepoxalin was not marketed in the United States but still has FDA approval.[1]
