PUT RELIEF IN MOTION Buster's playmates miss him. Who isn't sad when a dog is in too much osteoarthritis pain to play? So trust PREVICOX as your go-to NSAID because PREVICOX: • Provides efficacy both pet owners and veterinarians notice In a field study, after 30 days of use: – 96% of pet owners saw improvement in their dogs 1 – Veterinarians saw improvement in 93% of dogs 1 • Is rapidly absorbed—detected in plasma levels within 30 minutes 2 • Is convenient with once-daily dosing Important Safety Information As a class, cyclooxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney or liver side effects. These are usually mild, but may be serious. Pet owners should discontinue therapy and contact their veterinarian immediately if side effects occur. Evaluation for pre-existing conditions and regular monitoring are recommended for pets on any medication, including PREVICOX. Use with other NSAIDs, corticosteroids or nephrotoxic medication should be avoided. Refer to the Prescribing Information for complete details. It won't be for long, because you prescribe PREVICOX. ®
