Metacam for Dogs is an anti-inflammatory for treatment of pain and inflammation relating to musculo-skeletal disorders including arthritis in dogs. We are currently experiencing supply issues with this product. There are alternates, but we are only permitted to dispense the exact brand/make written on your prescription. Our vet recommends that you check the with the prescribing veterinary surgeon to discuss the suitability of alternate products - such as Loxicom, Rheumocam and Meloxidyl - and if they deem these suitable they may be able to provide you with an updated prescription.

It is supplied in 10ml, 32ml, 100ml or 180ml bottles of oral suspension.

Metacam is a prescription item and will be sent once a valid prescription is received.

Full instructions on the use of Metacam for dogs are included

Metacam is a veterinary medicine that contains the active substance meloxicam. It is available as an oral suspension, a solution for injection and chewable tablets.

Metacam contains meloxicam, which belongs to a class of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Meloxicam acts by blocking an enzyme called cyclooxygenase which is involved in the production of prostaglandins. As prostaglandins are substances that trigger inflammation, pain, exudation (fluid that leaks out of blood vessels during an inflammation) and fever, meloxicam reduces these signs of disease.

In dogs, Metacam is used to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation following orthopaedic (e.g. fracture operation) and soft tissue surgery. Moreover, metacam for dogs is used for the alleviation of inflammation and pain in both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders in dogs.


If you see the "prescription required" sign next to an item you’d like to order, it means the item can only be issued with a prescription. While you can add these items to your shopping cart and pay for them along with other non-prescription products, we can’t dispatch them until we’ve received a prescription.
