Just started my 13yo Aussie on previcox not quite a month ago, and was seeing significant improvements in the first week. She had two ACL surgeries 2 years ago and since, her hips have started to go. Slower to get up and move, struggling with stairs, no more running to greet people...she can get up on her own much quicker now, is back to using the stairs more often than her ramp and will lope across the yard to greet people. Will definitely be keeping her on this.

Noticeable results
I use half a pill for my 8 year old boxer as needed. He limps from certain activities, sometimes for days at a time. He also has a hard time going up stairs sometimes when it's really bad. But after I put half of the pill in his food to disguise it, he stops limping within an hour or two. The only con is that I've learned it can make him sick and throw up if it's taken on an empty stomach. I've had the bottle for about 7 months now and would probably refill it when the time comes.

seems like a miracle to us
Our vet suggested Previcox for our 11 yr. old lab Avena. We tried a 2 week trial and after just a few days we noticed she really was walking a lot better. It's now a month and yesterday, at the end of our walk, she picked speed and I almost had to start running to keep up with her. Petmeds has the best price. I checked around. This really does enhance her life and ours.

Awesome medication!
My 9 year old shepherd was on another medication for over a year. It helped a little at first but then didn't really work at all. Charlie has been on Prevacox for a month now and he's a totally different dog! It's amazing how much it helps him. Thank you!

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:

Firocoxib (fie-roe-cox'-ib)

What is the most important thing I should know about Previcox?

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.

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.
