Onsior for Cats is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that relieves pain and reduces inflammation associated with orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. The small, yeast-flavored tablets are favored by cats and are easy to administer. Onsior is available in a 6mg 3-pack blister packet. Onsior requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
Onsior contains the active ingredient robenacoxib, an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) that targets the COX-2 enzyme that causes pain. It spares the COX-1 enzyme to protect your cat's gastrointestinal tract and blood platelet functions. The tablet is quickly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is effective for 24 hours.
