Besides Previcox what other medications have you tried?

nothing really. just regular joint supplements and buffered asprin

An alternative is the generic of Rimadyl (carprofen) called Novox, it will be less expensive than Previcox. In addition, you can look into online pharmacy like Allivet or 800-pet meds to compare prices. You will need a prescription from your veterinarian. Do Not give Buffered Aspirin if he is on Previcox or any other type of non steriodal anti-inflammatory medication.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
