Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory drug (NSAID) used for the treatment of inflammation
Typically prescribed to pets with joint disease, fevers, and minor aches
Effective in the treatment of cancer, especially bladder cancer

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.

Piroxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) that is commonly used for managing pain and inflammation in dogs. The action mechanism of Piroxicam is to hinder the secretion of prostaglandins, thereby bringing relief from fever, pain and inflammation. It could also be combined with other drugs in the treatment of transitional cell carcinoma- a type of bladder cancer in dogs.


Clinical results have proved that this drug is well tolerated by dogs, even though side effects might occur in rare cases. Stomach and intestinal ulcers, bleeding, dark stools, peritonitis, vomiting etc., are some of the common side effects. A few of these could be life threatening as well. Piroxicam can hamper the smooth functioning of kidneys which might lead to papillary necrosis. Piroxicam could also damage the natural blood clotting mechanism, thereby increasing the risks of bleeding.

Desist from using Piroxicam in animals that are allergic to this drug, and in those with a noted history of bleeding, intestinal inflammation and high blood pressure. Use extreme caution while administering this medication in pets with heart ailments. Some medicines such as diuretics or ACE-inhibitors could have serious interactions with Piroxicam. So, make sure to verify that the medications administered to the pet do not belong to any of these groups. Piroxicam, when used along with corticosteroids is found to enhance the risks of ulcers.

When administering Piroxicam, contact your veterinarian if your pet shows signs of depression, an increase in drinking, jaundice, dizziness, seizures, behavior changes, lethargy, swelling, shedding, itching, constipation, or hot spots. In some cases, Piroxicam can cause stomach ulceration. Signs of this include loss of appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, and bloody or black stools.

Do not use Piroxicam in pets with kidney or liver disease, bleeding disorders, gastric ulcers, or high blood pressure. Use with caution in cats and pets with severe heart disease.

Negative interactions can occur with ACE-inhibitors such as enalapril, benazepril, and quinapril. Piroxicam may interact with other drugs like phenylbutazone, heparin, aspirin, corticosteroids, methotrexate, flunixin, diazepam, propranolol, and warfarin.
