What are Customers saying Pros ... a small price to pay for the rest of her skin to be doing so good. 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 started to have a negative effect on kitty. After one day of taking it he started vomiting and had severe diarrhea...
Vet Recommendations Prednisolone is a drug I will usually only reach for joint pain and/or stiffness if other prescribed nonsteroidal anti inflammatory have failed to work.   While cortisone like drugs such as prednisolone can work to reduce inflammation and pain quite quickly, I do worry about the weakening effect on the ligaments and bone when used long term.  I will usually use prednisolone over prednisone in geriatric pets or pets with preexisting liver disease.  When used long term, it is important to monitor blood work to check for organ toxicity.  The biggest side effects seen are usually increased thirst/urination/appetite, and occasionally diarrhea and vomiting.  It is also important to monitor for blood loss as well.   I give this product an overall ranking of 3.5 out of 5. 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.
