Equioxx Basics
Equioxx is available by prescription only. Equioxx is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat the pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in horses.

Equioxx Warnings
Keep Equioxx out of the reach of children and pets. Equioxx is for use in horses only. Equioxx is not intended for human consumption. Use with caution if your horse is pregnant or breeding, is less than one year old, or is lactating. Consult your veterinarian before use if your horse is dehydrated, is on diuretic therapy, suffers from renal, cardiovascular, or hepatic dysfunction. Do not use with other NSAIDs. Store at room temperature, protected from light and moisture.

Equioxx Directions
Use as directed by your veterinarian. Always follow the instructions printed on the prescription label. Equioxx comes in many forms. Discuss which form would be best for your horse with your veterinarian. To use the Equinox paste, round your horse’s weight to the nearest 50 lbs. Rotate the syringe plunger 1/4 turn. Slide the ring to the appropriate weight size. Lock the plunger back into place. Give the paste with or without food. Equioxx injection is for intravenous use.

If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your horse during Equioxx treatment, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Adverse Reactions and Serious Side Effects
Common signs and symptoms of an adverse reaction to NSAIDs are ulcers, especially around the mouth and face, weight loss, colic, diarrhea, or icterus. Severe reactions to NSAIDs can cause life threatening conditions and, in some cases, death. If your horse exhibits these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately.
