Trocoxil is a prescription-only medication used for the treatment of pain and inflammation associated with degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis in dogs aged 12 months or more.
Trocoxil contains the active ingredient Mavacoxib and is a relatively new treatment for arthritis in dogs. Trocoxil is available in brown tablet form (with Pfizer embossed onto the tablet) and in strengths of 6mg, 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.
Trocoxil is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Trocoxil works by inhibiting an enzyme known as cyclooxygenase (particularly cyclooxygenase-2) that is responsible for prostaglandin synthesis. By stopping this enzyme (COX-2) from working, the inflammatory effect is reduced and animals become more comfortable. Because osteoarthritis is an inflammatory condition, Trocoxil and other NSAIDs are highly effective at controlling this form of pain and often bring much needed relief to a stiff, sore and arthritic animal. Many owners report that their pet has a 'new lease of life' following the use of Trocoxil.
