What should I tell or ask my veterinarian before giving my dog PREVICOX (firocoxib)?

Talk with your veterinarian about:

  • The signs of canine arthritis you have observed in your dog, such as limping or stiffness. You can print our checklist of common signs and take it with you to help you talk with your veterinarian here.
  • The importance of weight control in the management of arthritis in dogs
  • What tests might be done before PREVICOX is prescribed
  • How often your dog may have to be examined by your veterinarian
  • The risks and benefits of using PREVICOX

Tell your veterinarian if your dog has ever had one or more of the following medical problems:

  • Any side effects from taking PREVICOX or other NSAIDs
  • Any digestive upset (vomiting and/or diarrhea)
  • Any kidney disease
  • Any liver disease

Tell your veterinarian about:

  • Any other medical problems or allergies that your dog has now, or has had in the past
  • All medicines that you are giving or planning to give your dog, including those you can get without a prescription and any dietary supplements
