What are Customers saying Pros Having a elderly male Nubian goat with arthritis, my vet prescripted Phenylbutazone tab, 1/4 to 1/2 tab twice each day. This seemed to help and did not upset his appetite. He was on this until his death in 2010. Animals need help with arthritis too. Wanting to keep my Patches as comforable as possible, this gave me some comfort in knowing it helped some. Arthritis is very painful in Human, we all need to remember how pain full it is in our animals too. He was loved to the very end. Our 11 year old Beagle was born with a left shoulder, joint deformity. AS she advanced in years, difficulity in walking resulted. Previcox restored normal joint movement and walking in two days.
What are Customers saying Cons N/A After one day of taking it he started vomiting and had severe diarrhea...
Vet Recommendations N/A Previcox is another effective prescription nonsteroidal anti inflammatory medication that has found favor among many veterinarians in recent years.  Supposedly more friendly on the liver and kidneys than some of the other non steroidal anti inflammatory medications it is especially helpful in managing arthritis and pain in middle age and older dogs.  I have only rarely seen digestive tract reactions when using this product.  I give this an overall ranking of a 4 out of 5.
