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 osteoarthritis, administer 5mg per kg bodyweight once daily. It is recommended that Previcox 227mg tablets are administered to dogs over 15kg in bodyweight. Previcox 57mg can be administered to dogs below this weight.
For relief in post-operative pain, administer 5mg per kg bodyweight once daily for up to 3 days.
Previcox cannot be used in pregnant or lactating bitches. The medication can also not be used in animals less than 10 weeks or age or less than 3kg body weight.
Full instructions for using Previcox for dogs are included with this product. The recommended dose should not be exceeded.
If you need to split the tablets and issue half doses, the remaining half tablet needs to be kept in the original packaging and can only be kept for a period of 7 days.

A good idea. Drugs from vets practices are very expensive. Presume they derive some benefit from this company which as I understand it, is operated by a group of veterinary practices.
Easy website, next day delivery, good choice, cheaper than my local vets, products packed very securely.
