What is Trocoxil?

 

Trocoxil is a prescription-only medication and is indicated for the treatment of pain and inflammation associated with degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis in dogs aged 12 months or more in cases where continuous treatment exceeding one month is indicated.

Trocoxil contains the active ingredient mavacoxib and is a relatively new treatment for osteoarthritis in dogs. Trocoxil is available in brown tablet form (with Pfizer embossed onto the tablet) and in strengths of 20mg, 30mg, 75mg or 95mg.

In comparison with other arthritis treatments in animals, trocoxil can be administered relatively infrequently due to the drug's prolonged duration of action.
