Onsior or Robenacoxib is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug [NSAID] that effectively relieves acute pain and post soft-tissue surgery and inflammation in cats. It travels rapidly through the bloodstream to selectively target the tissues involved in inflammation and pain. The drug takes effect and exits the blood quickly, to reduce potential side effects. Causes fewer gastrointestinal side effects by selective inhibition of prostaglandin formation.

- Available in a 3-pack blister packet
How it works
Onsior contains the active ingredient robenacoxib, an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) that targets the COX-2 enzyme that causes pain. It spares the COX-1 enzyme to protect your pet's gastrointestinal tract and blood platelet functions. The tablet is quickly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is effective for 24 hours.
