Previcox is a medication used to treat inflammation and pain in dogs. The tablet works quickly and is chewable, though can be given with food to make administering the drug much easier. It inhibits the enzyme responsible for generating the chemicals which lead to pain and inflammation. Previcox is generally used to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis though it may be suitable for other conditions as well. Osteoarthritis can occur through old age and general wear and tear, though the use of a drug such as Previcox can lead to dramatic reductions in the inflammation and pain, so giving the pet a whole new lease of life.

Previcox for dogs is only available with a prescription from your vet. The medication can be purchased directly from the vet but this usually works out to be much more expensive, so an alternative is to buy dog medicine from VioVet. The prescription will have to be obtained from the vet and sent with the order before the drug can be supplied.

As with all pain-relieving drugs, some side effects are possible. Any unusual symptoms should be reported to your vet. However Previcox for dogs is in fact one of the safest drugs in its class and very rarely causes any unwanted side effects. Care should be taken if the animal is suffering from conditions such as liver or kidney problems, heart disease or blood pressure problems. The vet will also take into consideration any other medication being given to the pet.

I have been buying this from my vet for around 2 years but paying double the price for it. Although I still have to buy the prescription from my vet, it's still costing me almost half the price that I way paying before. Excellent price from this site for exactly the same product - which works by the way!

It was amazing the difference in my 11year old dog within a day of starting taking Previcox. He is so much happier in himself and moves much more easily. Long may it last!

55 Previcox - massive help! I cannot believe we could play with my doggo again!
Verified Purchase

By on 21 February 2020

Hello. First of all I would to compliment VioVet for the fast delivery! I live with my doggo in a small european union country. Here it is impossible to find any of the expensive meds I need for my doggo. My dog has hip and elbows dysplasia, allergic dermatitis and hypothyroidism. So I have ordered from VioVet and I must say THEY ARE A LIFE SAVER. Both previcox and apoquel work for my dog. Keep in mind you should always test and consult with your veterinary upfront. I have 2 vets to monitor my dog. I keep in touch with them every week (sometimes a few times per week, I am a maniac dog owner and I want only the best for my dog).
I need to say I give apoquel for like 3 weeks and previcox for just 4 days, but we (me and my vets) constantly monitor and test my dog.
I am especially impressed with previcox. 5 days ago my dog was unable to climb to my bed and sofa.
I was so upset and depressed because he was in pain during our dog walks. It is terrible to watch your dog walking in pain and knowing you cannot do anything to help him.
2 days ago (his second previcox day) he wanted to play with me for first time in the last 3 months. So we had our game with his toys for a few minutes. Yesterday he came to me again and we played again. Now today I tested him with his ball and he was able to run after it. I swear you, I never ever believed we could be able to play like this again. I was in a deep depression 1 week ago. My doggo is my best friend and 3 years ago he was absolutely healthy dog (with 0 issues). We were able to play and run together outside and inside my apartment, but his issues started with the dysplasia, and then allergy and on top hypothyroidism.
I was just hoping with Previbox my dog would be able to walk slowly and does his regular walks with less pain.
I did not expect this miracle to happen. Yes, I am fully aware we give meds to my dog and they help him, so this is def not a natural process, but previcox really helps and the difference is HUGE only after 5 days. Actually we noticed a massive difference on his second day (he was on 1/2 tablet) due to my doggo being on convenia and apoquel for his bacterial infection and allergy. Need to say I am really really impressed with previcox! The difference is just like day and night!
I also would like to say A BIG THANK YOU TO VIOVET. You guys are the best!

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Previcox Tablets for Dogs, including answers from our team.

11 October 2017 at 3:17pm



Is previcox safe for my 7 year old cavilier king Charles do you think? She has a disc problem that's a year later is causing her to have a lot of pain. She's on 300mg gabapentin and 5 mg prednicare per day. Almost died after vet prescribed her tramadol. Any suggestions please, I would be truly grateful

  • VioVet Staff

Generally it is not considered a good idea to have dogs on NSAIDs like Previcox alongside steroid. However if your dog is in a considerable amount of pain you could talk to your vet about whether it is worth the risk in this case.

Side Effects

Can you tell me if there are any side effects from taking Previcox?


  • VioVet Staff

Like all the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs Previcox can occasionally cause side effects such as vomiting, inappetance, diarrhoea or some liver problems when given long term. However your vet will do a risk-beneift assessment for your dog- usually the benefits outweigh the risks.

Do I have to get prescription even though dog is already on them?

  • VioVet Staff

Legally we cannot sell any of this without receiving a copy of a prescription signed by your vet. If your vet is helpful, he/she can write out a prescription to authorise medication for 6 to 12 months, though lots of vets decline to do this. It is up to them in fact, we cannot change that.

Alternative to Previcox

Adrian Mills

Since ordering food from yourselves and receiving a speedy service I also see you can provide prescribed drugs and I have a question.
My 10 year old JRT has been on previcox for 3 years following a trauma injury for her crutiate ligament.
She has been quite well in general and I wonder if you have a similar non prescription drug that would be just as effective?
Your advice would be appreciated.

  • VioVet Staff

There is nothing like Previcox which is non-prescription. There are
however quite a few joint supplements which help the general health of
joints and can reduce or sometime eliminate the need for prescription
anti-inflammatory drugs like Previcox. I would suggest trying Yumove or Seraquin and gradually trying to wean your dog off the Previcox
after a few weeks. If you can reduce the dose, or even stop it
altogether, that is great. You might need to use Previcox periodically
if there is a flare-up of stiffness or soreness in the leg. Most people
find that both types of treatment have their place, along with sensible
but controlled exercise and weight control through sensible diet.
