first horse that had side effects was on it for 2 years, 1/4 tab. Presented with swelling in chest which vet first just said was from bug bites. Horse became lethargic, sleeping alot of the day, vet came back out to do full blood panel. In the mean time already taken horse off Previcox. Horse was diagnosed with cancer after looking at blood results. Owner made plans to euthanize after she took him to visit some friends the following week. During that tim off the previcix, sweeling went down and his energy came back. he fully recovered and went on to show this last season. 2nd horse was on Previcox 1/4 for 2 years, presented with super low heart rate, 4th degree heart block. Vets said it was rare and they did not understand it. I had suggested getting him off previcox since with dogs it can have heart issues. Its now been about 3-4 months after coming off previcox, his heart rate has come up enought that it would almost be in normal range and he is being ridden and doing well.
