PREVICOX (firocoxib) Chewable Tablets are indicated for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and for the control of post-operative pain and inflammation associated with soft-tissue surgery in dogs.
Canine osteoarthritis is a chronic, degenerative disease of the joints that causes pain and stiffness in dogs. It affects the cartilage, bones and soft tissue of the joint, affecting mobility by making movement painful. Dogs suffering from this condition, not surprisingly, may avoid activity and may seem irritable and lethargic. To find out whether you should have your dog examined for this condition, a checklist of what symptoms to look for is available here.
While arthritis in dogs cannot be cured, the condition can be effectively treated with PREVICOX (firocoxib), a coxib-class Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug (NSAID). Traditional NSAIDs include aspirin and ibuprofen. Unlike those pain medications, PREVICOX was developed specifically to alleviate the pain of arthritis in dogs – and minimize the potential of stomach upset that can result from the use of conventional canine NSAIDs.
