Previcox Chewable Tablets 227mg
Previcox Chewable Tablets 227mg is an oral medication designed for dogs with osteoarthritis and any conditions relating to osteoarthritis. This medication can also be used for the relief of post-operative pain which can be associated with soft-tissue, orthopaedic and dental surgery. Previcox helps to relieve pain and inflammation and therefore aids movement. Although there is no cure for arthritis, Previcox is a medication which helps to manage the symptoms.
Previcox is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received. Please follow the instructions given by your vet.
It is a brown, round tablet supplied in 57mg or 227mg blister packs. They are sold individually, in packs of 30 or packs of 60. If you wish to only order single tablets, please type the quantity required in the box above and if more than one box is required you will also need to type the total quantity of boxes.

For relief in post-operative pain, administer 5mg per kg bodyweight once daily for up to 3 days.

I placed my order for next working day delivery (placed on Saturday morning) I got an email Monday to say it was on its way(as I expected as I paid for next working day) I waited in all day as I wasn't able to track it but it never arrived and didn't arrive until Tuesday afternoon. I'd like to know why I was asked to pay for a service that you didn't provide? Not exceptable
