Description

Piroxicam was initially created for humans as a pain reliever. But with the proper dosage by your vet, it can also be administered to cats and dogs with some cancers, and as a pain reliever for arthritis. Piroxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), so it reduces both pain and inflammation. This drug is typically recommended for dogs experiencing neoplasia, a condition in which abnormal masses of tissue develop into tumors within the body. Consult your veterinarian if this is the right drug for you pet’s symptoms.

For: Cats and Dogs

    Benefits:
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Fever-reducing medication
  • Pain reliever

How it works: Piroxicam is generally prescribed with other medications, depending on the condition being treated. Piroxicam is a cyclo-oxygenase (COX) inhibitor. COX aids in the production of prostaglandins, which cause pain, swelling, and inflammation during injury or disease. By blocking the production of prostaglandins, Piroxicam reduces inflammation and pain.
