I would strongly advise against this in the future. This is only approved for dogs and horses. With that said, I don't think her life is in danger, but I certainly wouldn't make a habit of doing that, for her kidney's sake.
Previcox is approved for dogs only. It is non-narcotic and non-steroidal. It is an anti-inflamatory medication given to dogs for arthritis. I'm not a doctor but she should be fine. Caution her though not to take them any more. They can cause liver toxicity, kidney failure and seizures. The same enzyme that causes the inflammation also protects the stomach and intestinal lining. Because this enzyme is decreased from the Previcox, the inflammation is decreased but, it also destroys the stomach lining which can lead to ulcers.
So you mean to tell me a humans liver cannot tolerate this but a dogs can?
I agree with the person who raises quarter horses we care very much about what type of medication we give our animals and having my 30 year old Arabian on previcox I must admit it's working great but I only started giving him previcox after I researched the medication and I would advise anyone with an older horse that suffers from arthritis to get previcox from your veterinarian. It WORKS
