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.

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.

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 happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Previcox overdose include drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, headache, blurred vision, little or no urine production, slow breathing, and coma.

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.

Outstanding for horses-227mg dose. Bill is over26 years old and has ring bone in joints of front legs. He is a rescue horse could barely hobble. Day 1: could take steps without staggering. Day 2: limped but could walk to pasture. Day 3: could beat me to the barn. Day 4: walked to the top of the pasture. Day 5: Bill trotted a little. Day 6: Bill reared a little on his hind legs. Day 7: Bill kicked out with his hind legs and trotted to the barn. I am so impressed that I have given some of my tablets to my sister for her horse. He suffers from arthritis in his hips. Same wonderful results. 06/26/2014
Awesome product Previcox turned our 222 pound, 8 year old dog into a 2 year old puppy again. He walks 2 to 4 miles a day, tries to chase us if we run and has become very playful again. He shows no sign of hip discomfort, arthritis, or hip dysplasia. He also shows no signs of gastrointestinal upset/or distress. A remarkable product! 04/15/2014
Works Wonders! My 10 year old pit mix has a deformed wrist that gets very swollen from arthritis. In addition her age and this long winter have taken its toll and she's been moving slowly, tripping when going up stairs and lying down very slowly. Couldn't really handle going for walks at her worst. I gave this to her and after ONE day she was moving around more freely. After 2 she seemed like a dog five years younger! She's running around and enjoying herself again. Couldn't be happier. Best advice from my vet and only have to give it once a day. 03/25/2014
Wonderful product! My 10 year old Rottie had slowed down and seldom left her chair. She was slow moving around and obviously stiff and sore. After just a short time on this medication she is up and chasing her best friend thru the house and out in the yard again. She is hopping and jumping like a dog much younger. I am so happy she has her quality of live back and once again is playing. 01/06/2014
Great medication and safe to use I don't think our 15.5 years old Bearded Collie would be as sprightly and moving so well without previcox. It reduces inflammation and soothes his arthritis pain. Best advice ever from our vet was to give him previcox daily.. Long may Murphy reign! 12/21/2013

Answer this question

Answers

Answer: 
These can be used together if a veterinarian has determined they are both beneficial for your pet's
individual needs and safe after taking into account your pet's medical history. Of course, your vet will
be monitoring usage and performing any necessary blood work such as liver function.

My schnauzer was prescribed previcox following surgery for torn CCL. I was giving him one dose per day for the period prescribed. Now that it is winter he is having trouble with affected leg. Your ad on TV mentions meds for dogs with cold weather related pain. Can previcox be given as needed (episodically) or is it intended as a treatment for daily dosing?
