My big boy (just over 100 lbs)has been using this product for about 5 years now. He has terribly painful joints from arthritis and hip displasia. We could see the relief he experienced as soon as he started this medication, coupled with Cosoquin, and we continue to see the beneficial effects to this day. I am very much saddened for those who have lost their beloved companions, but I have to say that my baby is experiencing a far better quality of life due to use of this drug.

So far, ok. Now starting third 60 tablet bottle and dog is still alive and living a better life. Using the 227mg tablet split in HALF, to yield a 113mg/day dose which is given as TWO half doses of about 56mg (a quarter tablet 2x/day -- this method far cheaper than buying the lower dose tablets and giving 2 of them). Given hidden in peanut butter and added to the 2x daily feeding as Rx indicates to give with food and water. By giving two smaller doses, less stress on stomach and system. Recent blood work shows only 1 elevated liver value which Vet indicated could be result of Previcox, old age, or she is eating too much of something (peanut butter, premium allergy-free food, Milk Bones(<--got scolded for feeding those!). Only 4 stars due to cost/dose, the fuss of having to do so much pill spitting to save $ and be gentler on dog, need for EVERY 6 MONTHS blood tests to monitor liver function.

Our Rottweiler could not put any weight on his front left leg (due to arthritis and a possble sprain) and his back legs were weak from shifting most of his weight. He was on the med for only a couple hours and doing amazingly better. He is now on day two and doing much better! Thanks so much as it would not be easy to carry around an over 100 lb. dog!

My 5 year old mixed breed has osteoarthritis in her paws and I have been using this product for 2 years now. It has done wonders for her and my vet does a blood test once a year to make sure she is doing fine.

Previcox has made a great difference in my Sampson's mobility. I am so relieved to see him move around almost good as new. He is 12 years old and I was so worried that he was crippled. Now I can see a real positive change in his quality of life. Thanks to Previcox my baby can go outside again and enjoy a little time with his doggie friends.
