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.

These tablets help our 12 year old boy who has arthritis in his hips to still enjoy walks, playing and sometimes even running with our 2 year old cocker spaniel.

Our 11 year labradoodle has benefited from this tablet, he is more like his old self since being prescribed previcox. Arthritis has unfortunately hit him quite hard so to see him moving in apparent comfort is a comfort to us.

Q & A

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

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.

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.
