Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed veterinarian. I would recommend talking to your vet about switching Nicki from the Previcox to Meloxicam. Both are NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). But, the Meloxicam is also a human drug so you can likely get it for very cheap. Your vet would have to call in a prescription to a human pharmacy for this for you. You will need to do a 5 to 7 day washout period if you are going to switch the medications. So once you stop the Previcox you have to wait 5 to 7 days until you can start the Meloxicam. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. I hope this helps! Please hit accept at the top right of your screen if you are able to.
