Onsior general information

What is Onsior used for?

Onsior tablets 6mg are used for cats to treat acute (short term) pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal disorders (problems with the muscles and bones) and for moderate postoperative pain and inflammation associated with orthopaedic (bone) surgery, such as declawing, and other surgery including ovariohysterectomy (spayed), and castration (neutering).  Onsior tablets 6mg are only suitable for cats with a weight no less than 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs) and are no less than 4 months of age.  Onsior tablets 6mg are not effective for dogs.

How does Onsior work?

Onsior tablets 6mg contain robenacoxib, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the coxib class and has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic action (reduces fever).  Onsior tablets 6mg work by blocking the production of specific chemicals called prostaglandins (PG) that mediate inflammation.  Robenacoxib in Onsior tablets 6mg is a highly selective and specific inhibitor of the enzyme cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) that is induced during the inflammation process and is responsible for the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins like PGE2, which causes pain, swelling and other symptoms of inflammation1.  Robenacoxib in Onsior tablets 6mg has minimal effect on the cyclooxygenase 1 enzyme (COX-1) that is needed for normal cellular processes such as kidney and platelet function and also protects the gastrointestinal mucosa, which protects against gastrointestinal side effects1.  Robenacoxib in Onsior tablets 6mg enters and leaves the blood rapidly to target the site of inflammation2 so that it is fast acting, being effective within 30 minutes and lasts for 24hours.  By inhibiting the action of COX-2 Onsior tablets 6mg relieve the symptoms of inflammation, including pain and swelling.
