Previcox is a prescription COX-2, non-narcotic, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), for dogs suffering from arthritis, osteoarthritis, and lameness. The COX-2 inhibitory ingredient firocoxib, blocks only the COX-2 enzyme, which is responsible for pain and inflammation of the joints. While other NSAIDs may block the COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes, Previcox allows the release of COX-1 enzymes to maintain support of kidney health, stomach lining and platelet production. Previcox is intended for dogs 7 weeks and older and 12.5 pounds and over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill60 This product is a very effective anti-imflammatory and pain medication.
We have been giving Prevacox to our golden retriever for about 3 years. She will be 15 years old in July 2014. Sam has experienced arthritis in her hind legs and hips for a number of years as well as muscle loss. The Prevacox has been an effective treatment for arthritis and helps with her mobility. She can still climb a flight of stairs but not as easily and sometimes it takes her a few steps back and forth to get started up the steps. Outside, she will still run on occasion and she does not show noticeable signs of stiffness or pain when she walks. We believe this product has definitely improved her quality of life. The only drawback is that it is somewhat expensive, a little more than $50 per month. But Sam is well worth the cost.

Ike is 4 years old but walks like an older dog. After taking Previcox he is more like a pup now. This has helped his pain. He now runs and plays.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jacksonjones Great product
Previcox is working great for my dog. I am a bit disappointed with the price. Not your price, but the general price of this product. It is getting just way too expensive to own a pet anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marandthor Expensive but very effective
We tried several other arthritic meds but Previcox was the one that worked best with our 14 1/2 lab. He maneuvers quite well and seems to be free of pain. While I wish a less expensive med would work, I will continue to purchase Previcox for it's proven effectiveness.

Rated 5 out of 5 The only medication that has worked....
This is the only medication that has helped my 10 year old, retired AKC Champion Labrador Retriever, Lancelot have relief from his progressing painful osteoarthritis, and I have tried many medications up to now. Lance is a big dog -- about 105 pounds. Just one pill every morning brings the joy and 'spring' back to my big loving 'bulldozer'...:o)
