Previcox Chewable Tablets

Controls Pain & Inflammation

Previcox Chewable Tablets (firocoxib) is used for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs. Previcox, a non-narcotic, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), is available in a once-a-day dose that provides therapeutic pain relief for 24 hours after treatment.

Dosage and Administration:
Previcox should be administered orally at a dose of 5.0mg/kg (2.27 mg/lb) body weight once daily. The tablets are scored and dosage should be calculated in half tablet increments. Previcox Chewable Tablets can be administered with or without food.

Contraindications: Dogs with hypersensitivity to firocoxib or other NSAIDs should not receive Previcox Chewable Tablets.

Precautions: This product cannot be dosed accurately in dogs less than seven pounds in body weight.

Warnings:

Not for use in humans. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children. Consult a physician in case of accidental ingestion by humans. For use in dogs only.

Consider appropriate washout times when switching from one NSAID to another.

As a class, cyclooxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with renal and gastrointestinal toxicity. Sensitivity to drug-associated adverse events varies with the individual patient. Patients at greatest risk for renal toxicity are those that are dehydrated, on concomitant diuretic therapy, or those with existing renal, cardiovascular, and/or hepatic dysfunction. Concurrent administration of potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be carefully approached. NSAIDs may inhibit the prostaglandins that maintain normal homeostatic function. Such antiprostaglandin effects may result in clinically significant disease in patients with underlying or pre-existing disease that has not been previously diagnosed. Since many NSAIDs possess the potential to produce gastrointestinal ulcerations, concomitant use with other anti-inflammatory drugs, such as NSAIDs or corticosteroids, should be avoided or closely monitored. The concomitant use of protein bound drugs with PREVICOX Chewable Tablets has not been studied in dogs. Commonly used protein-bound drugs include cardiac, anticonvulsant, and behavioral medications. The influence of concomitant drugs that may inhibit the metabolism of PREVICOX Chewable Tablets has not been evaluated. Drug compatibility should be monitored in patients requiring adjunctive therapy.

The safe use of PREVICOX Chewable Tablets in pregnant, lactating or breeding dogs has not been evaluated.

Adverse Reactions: Include vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite or anorexia, lethargy, pain, somnolence and hyperactivity.

Not for use in humans. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
