Hi, Cheryl - In addition to Mandy's excellent advice, I just want to add an important caveat with regards to Previcox.  It is a useful NSAID in horses, but it is *very important* to make sure you don't overdose (which is unfortunately common)  The correct dose is 0.1 mgs per kg body weight, which is 0.045 mgs per puond body weight.  A 320 lb pony gets one quarter of a 57 mg tablet.  A 630 lb pony gets half a 57 mg tablet.  A 950 lb horse gets three quarters of a tablet.  A full tablet is the correct dose for a 1260 lb horse.  Big difference - if you have an average size Arab, don't be giving a full tablet, because that is a 25% overdose.
