EQUIOXX SOLUTION FOR INJECTION FOR HORSES (FIROCOXIB)

What is Equioxx Solution for Injection for Horses?

Equioxx Solution for Injection for Horses is a non-narcotic, non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) that your veterinarian may prescribe if you have a horse experiencing the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis (OA). Yes, arthritis can affect many animals as it affects humans so people understand the symptoms their horse can have, including lameness, limping, reluctance to walk or trot, and stiffness in the joints. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but Equioxx Solution for Injection for Horses has demonstrated impressive improvements that can be noticed in only a few hours after treatment.

How does Equioxx Solution for Injection for Horses Work?

Osteoarthritis is a painful condition that occurs from daily wear and tear on the cartilage and other parts of the horse’s joints, resulting in painful movements. The cartilage and soft tissues of joints provide a shock-absorber affect; but as they become worn out, bone-on-bone friction causes pain and inflammation.

The active ingredient in Equioxx Solution for Injection for Horses is Firocoxib. When injected as instructed by your vet, Firocoxib works as an inhibitor of the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), while sparing cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1). This means that the COX-2 enzyme is prevented from producing inflammatory chemicals that are signaled to the affected joints, while COX-1 is less affected so it’s still able to maintain your stomach mucosal lining without being interrupted. Non-selective NSAIDs affect both COX-1 and-2 which is why some people and animals are more at risk for stomach problems.
