How It Works
Equioxx is a coxib class NSAID that targets COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2), which help the chemicals responsible for pain and inflammation, while sparing COX-1 (cyclooxygenase-1), which help maintain normal bodily functions like blood flow to the kidneys and gastric mucosal protection.
Equioxx Tablets are administered once daily for up to 14 days for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in horses.
Horses with hypersensitivity to firocoxib should not receive Equioxx Injection.
For intravenous use in horses only. Do not use in horses intended for human consumption.
Not for use in humans. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children. Consult a physician in case of accidental human exposure.
Horses should undergo a thorough history and physical examination before initiation of NSAID therapy. Appropriate laboratory tests should be conducted to establish hematological and serum biochemical baseline data before and periodically during administration of any NSAID. Clients should be advised to observe for signs of potential drug toxicity and be given a Client Information Sheet with each prescription.
Treatment with Equioxx should be terminated if signs such as inappetance, colic, abnormal feces, or lethargy are observed.
The concomitant use of protein bound drugs with Equioxx Injection for horses has not been studied in horses. The influence of concomitant drugs that may inhibit the metabolism of firocoxib Injection has not been evaluated. Drug compatibility should be monitored in patients requiring adjunctive therapy.
The safe use of Equioxx Injection for horses has not been evaluated in horses less than one year of age, horses used for breeding, or in pregnant or lactating mares.
Consider appropriate washout times when switching from one NSAID to another NSAID or corticosteroid.
