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 for dogs is available to buy from Pet Drugs Online at up to 81% cheaper than your vet.
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.

Easy ordering via website, excellent pricing with speedy delivery. One criticism is that I bought flea treatment for 3 cats, but could only allocate the medicine to one of them.
Regularly buy from this site on behalf of my mum, nan and myself. Always find it easy to re order. Quick delivery and well packaged. Have some very happy cats.
Very competitive pricing and rapid delivery. Has a great range of stock and I was able to find all of what I needed from this one site.
My delivery was 'chucked' over my fence and lost by the delivery driver .. considering the box is labelled 'fragile' and the fact that the driver said that I'd signed for it when I hadn't I consider myself lucky to have received my order
Fast delivery and service. Good price so save money on good products. Will keep using this service. Thank you.
