my friend took a pain pill for dogs called previcox. worried what it will do to her.
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 inflamation also protects the stomach and intestinal lining. Because this enzyme is decreased from the Previcox, the inflamation is decreased but, it also destroys the stomach lining which can lead to ulcers.
