Description

Metacam oral suspension is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and is used to reduce pain and inflammation in cats and guinea pigs.  It is a 0.5 mg/ml suspension and is available in 3 bottle sizes 3ml, 15ml or 30ml.

Metacam oral suspension can be used in cats for both chronic (long-term) musculoskeletal conditions, such as arthritis, and acute (sudden and short-lived) musculoskeletal disorders, such as an injury. Metacam oral suspension can also be used to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation following soft tissue surgery in cats and guinea pigs, and orthopaedic (e.g. fracture repair) surgery in cats

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.

Do not use Metacam in pregnant or lactating animals. Do not use in cats suffering from gastrointestinal disorders, such as irritation and haemorrhage, impaired hepatic, cardiac or renal function and haemorrhagic disorders. Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.  Do not use in cats less than 6 weeks of age.  Do not use in guinea pigs less than 4 weeks of age.

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