Metacam Oral Suspension for Cats

Metacam for Cats is an anti-inflammatory for treatment of pain and inflammation relating to musculo-skeletal disorders including arthritis in cats. 

It is supplied in 3ml, 15ml or 30ml bottles of oral suspension.

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 cats, Metacam is used to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation after ovariohysterectomy (spay operation), orthopaedic and minor soft tissue surgery. Moreover, Metacam for cats is used for the alleviation of pain and inflammation in acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders.

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



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.
