Why use Piroxicam, 10 mg Capsule?

Features of Piroxicam:
  • Has shown effectiveness against fevers
  • May be used in the treatment of chronic rhinitis in cats and dogs
  • Works as a pain and anti-inflammatory drug in cats
  • May be used in conjunction with other medications in the treatment of transitional cell carcinoma (a form of bladder cancer) in dogs)

How does Piroxicam, 10 mg Capsule work?

Piroxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID). It is a non-selective cyclooxygenase inhibitor (COX) with inhibitory effects on COX-2 and COX-1. COX-1 produces homeostasis-regulating prostaglandins, which allows the kidneys to protect the gastrointestinal tract and respond to hypotension. COX-2 produces the prostaglandins that increase when inflammation occurs. COX-2 is upregulated in some tumor types, such as osteosarcoma, urinary bladder transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), prostatic carcinoma, colorectal tumors, oral squamous cell carcinoma, oral melanoma, mammary tumors, and nasal epithelial tumors.

  • Avoid use in animals with a history of high blood pressure, intestinal lining (mucosa) perforation, stomach perforation, inflammation, or bleeding.
