What is Previcox?

Previcox is a Cox-2 non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication used in dogs for the relief of pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis. It may also be used for purposes other than those listed here. Previcox works by reducing substances that cause pain, inflammation, and fever in the body. Previcox requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (7+ weeks of age)

Benefits:

  • A flavored chewable tablet makes administering medication easier
  • Can be given with or without food
  • Fast acting

How does Previcox work?

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. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

Brand Name:

Previcox

Generic Name:

What is the most important thing 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 57 mg and 227 mg 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 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. Also inform your veterinarian if your pet has an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach, 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 Previcox 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 2.27 mg/lb as a single daily dose. Previcox can be given with or without food. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Do not give Previcox to cats.

What are the potential 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 your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Previcox to my pet?

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 my pet on Previcox?

Contact your veterinarian immediately.

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 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.

Customer Reviews
Previcox is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 220.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great My GSD was on Metacam for hip problems and she’d limp and activity level was decreased dramatically, I knew she was still in pain. Her veterinarian suggested Previcox. Although much more expensive I am happy to say that after being on this for more than a month now her activity is much improved and I can tell she is feeling pain relief. It took 10 days or so for me to see the improvement, maybe I was feeling the pain of the $$. LOL. Overall i feel she has more pain relief with previcox. We live in Northeast so now that the winter is here it’ll put previcox to the test I guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Price. Have used Previcox for over a year for my dog's arthritis. But it is expensive. As a senior citizen, PetMeds helped as its over $2 a pill cheaper. Thanks PetMeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older dogs My 12 year old Pitty has started acting like a 4 year old dog!! She has been on this medication for a month and the change it has made in her is remarkable!!! She is playing with our other puppy (he's 1) like she is a puppy. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Relief My dog had oral surgery. The medication Stopped her constant licking the area, & when I touched her she was less anxious. Her mood & activity level were affected. She seemed a bit melancholy. She'll oy need it for 2 more days. I'm completely satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our 14 year old Golden was really having difficultly get up and down. He was obviously in pain. Since we started giving him Previcox it has been a miracle!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No effect Some years ago the vet recommended Previcox to my kuvasz that has hip dysplasia and arthrits. It has absolutely no effect on her, excepting for lose stools the first days. We've tried it for months in a row, then stopped, then tried again and again, with no noticeable changes on her. She is becoming 11 now and we have just started Metacam this week, I really hope it will be more effective, my fingers are crossed! I'm longing to see her running again.

Q&A

My dog was ordered  57 mg 1/2 pill a day. To get a better value can the 227 mg be cut 8 ways. I use a pill cutter now.

Asked by: Betty
Cutting the 227 mg tablet 8 ways will be difficult and the dog may not get the appropriate dose. Consult your veterinarian for his or her opinion.

I just gave a 225mg tablet to a 125 lb Mastiff and I had given him one around 12 hours ago. I also have 1/2 of a 225 mg tablet to a 75 lb pitt and she had gotten it around 12 hours ago. They are both overweight. Is this bad?

Asked by: Susie 17
APOLOGIES!!!! I was looking at the wrong drug. This drug is dosed 2.27 mg/lb. Your 125 lb dog should be given ~284 mg, and your 75 lb dog should be given ~ 170 mg. So my previous statement still applies. You under-dosed them just a tad. This medication is a prescription so please contact your veterinarian for specific dosage.
