Efficacy of cyclo-oxygenase inhibition by two commercially available firocoxib products in horses

In the control group, there was no significant change in LPS-induced PGE2 over time. In contrast, immediately prior to and 1 h after treatment on Day 7, the mean LPS-induced PGE2 concentration decreased significantly compared to Day 0 values in all treated horses. There was no difference in PGE2 or plasma firocoxib concentrations between firocoxib treatment groups.
In this model, the canine chewable preparation of firocoxib was as effective as the equine paste formulation at reducing LPS-induced PGE2 synthesis.
The canine chewable preparation of firocoxib may be a suitable alternative to the paste formulation in horses for situations where extra-label drug use can be legally justified.
