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.

Great customer service and far cheaper than vet's prices. A problem with my order (my mistake) was rectified quickly and efficiently. Just a shame I could only order 120 tablets when my prescription was for 100.
Their service is excellent: dog food always arrives the next day and this Burns food is the cheapest I have found.
The Web site was easy to use along with the registration process. Payment was straight forward. The European delivery options was why I used the company in the first place. The order was dispatched quickly and I was informed every step of the way and more to the point my order was delivered to my door in Spain with no problems.
A good company to deal with, always my first port of call. Helpful if you need to ring. Used the different posting options all good even allowing for Royal Mail!!
Quite good product (Evening primrose oil), I can see difference in my cat's fur in just couple of weeks. Will be coming back for more.
I have used them several times and have always been able to get what I require with out any problems. Delivery is reasonable and prices fantastic.
Easy to place an order, no problem to upload my pet prescription. Quick delivery. Happy with the prices compared to other pet products on different websites, will order again from this company.
