What is Previcox?

Previcox is a Cox-2 non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication used in dogs for the relief of pain and inflammation. Previcox requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (7 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:
  • A flavored chewable tablet makes administering medication easier
  • Can be given with or without food
  • Is fast acting
How it Works:

Previcox works by inhibiting the COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) enzyme which generates chemicals that are responsible for pain, inflammation and even fever in the body.

Cautions:

Before giving your dog any other prescription or over-the-counter medications talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist.

Brand Name:

Previcox

Generic Name:

Firocoxib (fie-roe-cox'-ib)

What is Previcox:

Previcox (firocoxib) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Previcox works by reducing substances that cause pain, inflammation, and fever in the body. Previcox is used for the treatment of pain and inflammation as a result of osteoarthritis. Previcox may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Previcox to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to aspirin or any other NSAID; an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach; has liver, or kidney disease; congestive heart failure; fluid retention; bleeding disorders; heart disease or high blood pressure. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is taking a steroid medication such as prednisone, methylprednisolone or Prednisolone.

What is the most important information I should know about Previcox:

Previcox is a prescription medication that is FDA approved for use in dogs 7 weeks of age or older. Previcox is available as 57mg and 227mg Chewable, scored tablets. Contact the veterinarian if the pet has hives; or an allergic reaction after taking sulfa-based medications such as SMZ/TMP, aspirin or another NSAID such as Rimadyl. Notify your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops abdominal pain; tenderness or discomfort; nausea; bloody, black or tarry stools; water retention; fatigue or lethargy; skin rash; itching; yellowing of the eyes; unusual bruising or bleeding as these symptoms could be early signs of dangerous side effects. Before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medications check with your veterinarian or pharmacist.

How should this medication be given:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The usual dose of Previcox in the treatment of osteoarthritis pain and inflammation is 2.27mg/pound as a single daily dose. Previcox can be given with or without food. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Store Previcox at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Do not give Previcox to cats.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and take the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What should I avoid while giving Previcox to my pet:

Many over the counter cough, cold, allergy and pain medicines contain aspirin or other NSAID's similar to Previcox. Before taking any prescription or over the counter medications talk to the veterinarian or pharmacist.

What are the possible side effects of Previcox:

Contact the veterinarian if the pet has abdominal pain, tenderness, or discomfort; bloody, black or tarry stools or blood in vomit; unexplained weight gain; water retention; fatigue or lethargy; skin rash; itching; yellowing of eyes; unusual bruising or bleeding as these symptoms could indicate serious side effects. If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Previcox and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives). Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Previcox and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences flatulence or diarrhea; dizziness; headache; or insomnia. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Previcox:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given aspirin; another NSAID such as etodolac, carprofen or piroxicam; an over the counter cough, cold, allergy or pain medication; warfarin; furosemide; an ACE inhibitor such as enalapril, a steroid such as prednisone, insulin; or probenecid. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Previcox. Talk to your veterinarian before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medicines.

Previcox is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 212.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Lab My ten year old Lab is back to herself. Seriously, if she could speak, she would be thanking me. She's like a puppy again. This was cheaper than at my vets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Joints, Happy Liver, Happy Dog! My Ferris has been on this for about one year now for sever hip OA and has done fantastic. Unlike Rimadyl, the Previcoxx has had no ill effects on the function of his liver and he has much more mobility. For 13 he plays more now than he did at 3!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable! My 10 year old Lab was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia and will be on meds the rest of her life. She's taking her meds - Previcox included - And now she' our old playful dog again. She's playing, running and even bringing us toys again. Just warms our hearts that she's not in pain and can have an active life still! .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! My Coton de Tulear is 6 years old and had been on a low dose of Previcox for 4 years. She had signs of arthritis at 2 years old. She is doing great and is as playful as a puppy. She has no side effects. I give it to her with wet food at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick improvement! Our Abby 9yr Great Dane was having rough days. Within a few days she was her old self again and within a week charging up and down stairs again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective Lilly had started to have minor signs indicating that her range of motion in her right fore-leg was becoming a bit limited right after resting. She would get up with a slight limp and not be happy going on walks as she usually was. We had tried a few other remedies to no avail. One of our horse vets in Eastern Oregon saw Lilly and prescribed Previcox. It was a complete and immediate turn-around. Two days after first giving Lilly her Previcox we went on a three day back packing trip. We went 18 miles over those three days, with major elevation gain; and Lilly was her old self. No problems at all. Subsequently, over the last month and one-half, she seems totally normal. No movement restrictions what so ever.

Can tramadol be given to dogs on previcox?

Asked by: Dev47
Yes, Tramadol and Previcox can be given together. This may not be necessary, however, since they can both help to treat pain. Your vet, who knows your pets medical history, will be able to give you the best answer as to whether or not your dog needs both medications for their pain. They both require a prescription from your veterinarian.

Unflavored Previcox?

My dog responded well to Previcox and we'd like to keep using it but she has allergies and is no longer allowed to have the flavored, chewable tablets. Is Previcox available in unflavored pills/capsules?
