Description

Previcox is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) prescribed by your vet to treat your canine companion's pain and inflammation caused by osteoarthritis. It can also help control postoperative pain and inflammation often associated with soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery. This medication comes in a chewable tablet form, which means it can be easily crushed up and disguised in your pet's favorite food.

  • Limping or lameness.
  • Decreased activity or exercise (reluctant to stand, climb stairs, jump or run, or difficulty in performing these activities)
  • Stiffness or decreased movement of joints.

Indications: PREVICOX (firocoxib) Chewable Tablets are indicated for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of postoperative pain and inflammation associated with soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery in dogs.

Prescription Required

Directions

Always provide the Client Information Sheet with prescription. Carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of PREVICOX and other treatment options before deciding to use PREVICOX. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response. The recommended dosage of PREVICOX (firocoxib) for oral administration in dogs is 2.27 mg/lb (5.0mg/kg) body weight once daily as needed for osteoarthritis and for 3 days as needed for postoperative pain and inflammation associated with soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery. The dogs can be treated with PREVICOX approximately two hours before surgery. The tablets are scored, and dosage should be calculated in half-tablet increments. PREVICOX Chewable Tablets can be administered with or without food.

Working Well!
I prefer Previcox over the other drugs we tried because it seems to work well with no upset tummy issues, and I love that I can give it once a day vs twice. It is sold as a chewable, but my dog won't eat it unless I put a little bit of spray cheese on it. (The spray cheese isn't healthy, I know, but just a little on a pill gets him to readily eat the pill with no muss, no fuss.)
Merchant Response:Hi Judy! Drugs can be expensive, we do our best to keep the costs as low as we can. I like the spray cheese. Might not be "healthy" but a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down. We thank you for being a good customer and a great pet parent!
ProsOnce-a-day dosing.
ConsCost, but generally you get what you pay for and don't get what you don't pay for.

Great Service and price!
I ordered this NSAID after my Neapolitan Mastiff was unable to tolerate Rimadyl. Sometimes dogs who are unable to tolerate one, can tolerate another. After 10 days, unfortunately, same symptoms of not eating and diarrhea (dark) so we stopped. Our Neapolitan has a torn ACL & lateral lactated patella and is a non-surgical candidate due to cardiomyopathy. In addition to finding a NSAID he can tolerate, we are also using Gabapentin, Tramadol, Adequan injections, physical therapy and a host of supplements purchased through Entirely Pets. I would say he is holding his own. We are now trying Metacam at a lower dose. Entirely Pets Pharmacy was great to work with as is their sister company where we have done business for many years & a happy Customer.
ProsImmediate pain relief.
ConsMy particular dog was unable to tolerate this NSAID for long term, about 10 days only.

Great pain management for our older QH mare
Our vet prescribed this for our mare struggling with severe arthritis. With it, she moves normally and comfortably; without, she can hardly walk. The price on this site is the best I have been able to find and they ship quickly and efficiently. I give them my vet's contact info, and the rest is taken care of. I have been on some sites where I have to have the vet contact the company before they will take my order-- honestly, too many steps and too much trouble. Like this site, the price, and definitely the product!

Good product--very effective
Thanks to this product my miniature donkey ' s arthritis is improved. The small pill makes it easy to administer.
ConsIt should not have taken 11 days to receive this order. My poor donkey as a result had no Med's for two days and had to suffer.

This NSAID is working for my dog when all others gave her gasteritis. However, my vet had to fax the prescription three times before it was received by them. Very frustrating.

So far so good!
My 31yo gelding suffered a serious tendon injury about 3 months ago. This combined with consistent physical therapy and he is back to being his silly self. We will be back on the trail within the next couple of weeks.
ConsA little hard to get him to take it. A hollowed out carrot is the best.
