Previcox 174 174
A quality of lifesaver Maggie has had very bad arthritis in her back legs and hips for years. She was unable to get up at one point and would yelp and falter. She took a med called deramaxx ,which was a a miracle. She did great, running around, like a young pup. Then they quit making it for awhile. We switched to the closest we could find, previcox, and she's done just as we'll, just a 1/2 tablet a day. She's 13 and doing so well, no problems. 05/31/2013
Previcox works well. Boomer, my 14 year old Blue Heeler, has had arthritis and hip dysplasia for several years. I used Deramaxx but replaced it with Previcox when Deramaxx was no longer available. Boomer has an occasional hop in his right hind leg that he had even when he took Deramaxx. He recently had dental surgery and was off the Previcox for about a week and he developed a stiffness that was so bad he didn't want to do his daily walks. Two days after he was back on Previcox he was chasing his frisbee and walking the normal 3 miles a day. While no medication has successfully relieved him of all his problems, he does just fine with Previcox, a half 227mg every other day, and Glycoflex III every day. When I "jump started" him back on Previcox after his dental surgery, I gave him half of a 227mg tablet every day for 5 days. While Previcox is safe for daily use, I dose him every other day because I am very conscious of "over medicating". If his condition worsens, which is very likely, I would have no hesitation to dose him daily. 04/16/2013
Excellent medication I received a 10 day (break in half=20 days) sample of Previcox from my vet to try out on my 16 year old Border Collie. Mom and I walk "Oscar" at least 2 miles a day, everyday weather permitting so he's in fairly good shape for his age but you can tell he's getting stiff and has difficulty getting started. Wow!!! What a difference. On the first he was like a puppy, jumping over sprinklers and jogging like the old days past. Don't know how long this rejuvination will last but it has improved his quality of life for 2 months now. Half a 227mg pill stuffed into a Greenies Pill Pocket and then fed his daily meal is all it takes. I'll try next half of a half a pill (less is best the vet says) guess thats about 56 or 57mg. 04/05/2013
works great First, I want to say that Previcox has helped our dog greatly. No more limping. She was taking a 1/2 of 227mg daily, so after a while I tried the same dose every other day, and still no limping. The vet said less is better if it still works. Also, for those of you that have trouble getting your dog to take it. I use whipped cream cheese. I put a blob on finger, hide the pill in the middle and it's gone. 03/20/2013
Can't live without it! We have been useing Previcox for our dogs for 3 yrs., & had good results. We now have 6 older horses with all sorts of joint & leg problems, on it and the results are fantastic. My question to you is, why when my orders are for more than one animal, with all of their names listed, you only put 1 cookie in the box? And yes, the horses do eat the doggie cookies! 03/01/2013

My Jack Russel Terier has torn ligaments in her back leg. Vet prescribed Previcox en bedrest. Previcox works 100%, but makes her forget about the injury and bedrest IMPOSSIBLE, which increases her risk of re-injury. Does Provicox help in the healing of the injury itself or just manage the pain? I know it may sound cruel, but I'm trying to prevent surgery. So, should I stop the meds to remind her of the injury in order to keep her still?
I have a big draft horse that has been on pervicox for 3 months, he has been giving a 1/4 pill of 227 mg. he seems lately to need a higher dose. Can I give him a 1/2 a pill of 227mg. ?
Shep has arthitis and no other health problems. He started Rimadyl and 7 days later, at 0300, he had a grand mal siezure with urine incontinence. We immediayly stopped and called vet. He said ( Sep. 2012 ) siezures were not listed as a side effect and he called and spoke to the drug company which confirmed not a s/e. Four weeks later, restarted med, splitting dose q12; 8 days later, grand mal, 0315. Stopped. Dec. vet put him on Duramaxx. 10 days later, grand mal, 0318. They both helped his arthritis, Duramaxx moderatly better. Are enough (? ) dogs reporting siezures that it is now listed? What breeds are they prevalent in? Any suggestions to discuss with vet in regards to severe arthitis relief would be met with many thanks. Carla and Shep
Answer:¬†ask your vet how they feel about SHep using a medication called METACAM for pain due to
arthritis. It comes in a solution and in a tablet. We hear good results from metacam, its worth mentioning as a possibility for SHep to your vet. Good Luck !
Answer:¬†Some pets can use this long term with no problems. However, it does require periodic monitoring through bloodwork to make sure that it safe for your dog to continue using long term. Most veterinarians require bloodwork every 3 to 6 months to make sure all levels are normal and to ensure that your dog is not having any side effects.
