Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Questions

If my dog is no longer experiencing pain do I need to continue until all the pills are gone?

Asked by: mari
Thank you for your question. Check with your DVM to see if your pet's condition requires Previcox to be administered on a maintenance or "as needed" basis.

How does previcox compare to Carprofen in the use for dogs. 

Asked by: Pcs55
Although both are non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, carprofen and Previcox work differently. 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. Novox works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in your dog's body.
