Hialeah Gardens, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/22/2014 -- Robenacoxib (Onsior®) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used as a pain reliever and to treat inflammation in cats and dogs due to musculoskeletal problems such as osteoarthritis. Like other NSAIDs, it targets cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) which promotes pain and inflammation.
It is available as tablet that can be given to cats for six days and for dogs as long as needed to manage pain. It also comes as an injection that can be given under the skin prior to surgery to help manage post-operative pain.Vetmedin Injecting it under the skin can cause reaction at the site and this is something that is worse in the cat than the dog.
Studies comparing effectiveness and tolerability between robenacoxib and carprofen in dogs and robenacoxib and meloxicam in cats showed robenacoxib to be better at managing pain and safer in terms of side effects. The common risk of gastrointestinal bleeding associated with NSAID use is lower compared to other COX-2 inhibitors.
