Instructions
Recommended Dosage

EQUIOXX (firocoxib) Oral Paste or EQUIOXX Tablets can be used at a dosage of 0.045 mg/lb (0.1 mg/kg) body weight for up to 14 days of treatment. EQUIOXX Oral Paste: Each marking on the syringe will treat 250 lbs of body weight, and each notch corresponds to approximately a 50 lb weight increment. To deliver the correct dose, round the horses body weight up to the nearest 50 lb increment (if the body weight is an exact 50 lb increment, do not round up). 1) While holding plunger, turn the knurled ring on the plunger to the left and slide the knurled ring along the plunger shaft so that the side nearest the barrel is at the appropriate 50 lb weight notch, aligning the arrow on the plunger with the notch on the ring. 2) Lock the ring in place by making turns to the right. Ensure it is locked (it should no longer slide) EQUIOXX Tablets: The recommended dosage of EQUIOXX Tablets is one 57 mg tablet, for oral administration in horses weighing 800-1300 lbs, once daily for up to 14 days. The overall duration of treatment with any firocoxib formulation in horses, including EQUIOXX Oral Paste or Tablets will be dependent on the response observed, but should not exceed 14 days. EQUIOXX may be given with or without food. Please see package insert for additional information.

FAQ

What is an NSAID?

NSAID stands for Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug. NSAIDs are primarily used to treat inflammation and mild to moderate pain.

What makes EQUIOXX different than other NSAIDs?

EQUIOXX is the first non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the coxib class used to control pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in horses that has been approved for use in the U.S. As a coxib class NSAID, EQUIOXX targets COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2), which helps generate chemicals called prostaglandins that are responsible for pain and inflammation, while sparing COX-1 (cyclooxygenase-1), which helps maintain normal bodily functions such as blood flow to the kidneys and gastric mucosal protection.

Most NSAIDs currently approved for use in horses inhibit both COX-1 and COX-2. Firocoxib, the active ingredient in EQUIOXX Brand Products is a highly selective inhibitor of COX-2.

What do I do in case my horse receives more than the prescribed amount of EQUIOXX?

Consult your veterinarian if your horse receives more than the prescribed amount of EQUIOXX.

    difficult to order

    By equioxx on Jun 15, 2021

    I have been using equioxx for my horse for over a year. When I saw Chewy had a good price, I decided to order from them since I also buy dog and cat food from Chewy. Unfortunately the process to order was an ordeal and It took 3 tries to get it sorted out. My vet repeatedly approved the prescription, and something would "happen" to make the order not go through on the Chewy end. I got emails that were confusing from chewy. I nearly gave up and the medication finally arrived. I hope it will be easier next time.

    Seems to be working well

    By Andrea on Jun 25, 2021

    It seems to be assisting rather well with my teen/senior horse. He takes the chewable in the morning and seems to have more pep in his step the rest of the day. He was diagnosed with ringbone 2 weeks ago.
