Previcox (Rx)

Previcox starts working against the pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in your dog within hours of the first dose. It works to control pain and inflammation at the source – by inhibiting an enzyme called COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) that helps produce substances that are primarily responsible for inflammation and pain.
