Detailed Description

PREVICOX® (firocoxib) Tablets

PREVICOX Tablets are used for the control of pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis or associated with soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery in your dog.

What is PREVICOX? 

PREVICOX is a veterinary prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to control pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis, or associated with soft-tissue and orthopedic surgery in dogs.

Osteoarthritis is a painful condition caused by "wear and tear" of
cartilage and other parts of the joints that may result in the following changes or signs in your dog:

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

PREVICOX is indicated for the control of postoperative pain and inflammation following soft-tissue and orthopedic surgeries (e.g. spays, cruciate ligament repair). Your veterinarian may administer PREVICOX before the procedure and recommend that the dog be treated for a few days after going home.

For more information see product label.

How to use PREVICOX (firocoxib)?

PREVICOX is convenient and easy to administer. It comes in a BBQ-flavored chewable tablet that dogs like and can be given with or without food. PREVICOX is available in two sizes. Your veterinarian will prescribe the correct dosage based on your dog’s weight. Make sure to always follow your veterinarian’s recommendation precisely.

How to give PREVICOX to your dog?

PREVICOX should be given according to your veterinarian's instructions.

Do not change the way you give PREVICOX to your dog without first speaking with your veterinarian.

Your veterinarian will tell you what amount of PREVICOX is right for your dog and for how long it should be given. Most dogs will take PREVICOX Chewable Tablets from your hand, or you can place the tablet in your dog's mouth. PREVICOX may be given with or without food.

What are the possible side effects that may occur in my dog during PREVICOX therapy?

PREVICOX, like other NSAIDS, may cause some side effects. Serious side effects associated with NSAID therapy in dogs can occur with or without warning, and, in rare situations, result in death. The most common side effects associated with PREVICOX therapy involve the digestive tract (vomiting and decreased food consumption). Liver and kidney problems have also been reported with NSAIDs.

Look for the following side effects that may indicate your dog is having a problem with PREVICOX:

  • Decrease or increase in appetite. 
  • Vomiting.
  • Change in bowel movements (such as diarrhea, or black, tarry
    or bloody stools).
  • Change in behavior (such as decreased or increased activity
    level, in coordination, seizure, or aggression).
  • Yellowing of gums, skin, or whites of the eyes (jaundice).
  • Change in drinking habits (frequency or amount consumed).
  • Change in urination habits (frequency, color, or smell).
  • Change in skin (redness, scabs, or scratching).
  • Unexpected weight loss.

It is important to stop the medication and contact your veterinarian immediately if you think your dog has a medical problem or side effect while taking PREVICOX tablets.

If you have any other questions contact your veternarian or pharmacist.


As a class, cyclooxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney or liver side effects. These are usually mild, but may be serious. Pet owners should discontinue therapy and contact their veterinarian immediately if side effects occur. Evaluation for pre-existing conditions and regular monitoring are recommended for pets on any medication, including PREVICOX. Use with other NSAIDs, corticosteroids or nephrotoxic medication should be avoided.

Refer to the prescribing information for complete details.
