Metacam Oral Suspension for Dogs

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

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.

    "Great service, great price!"

    "I would recommend them. They have a phone number and answer the phone for an enquiry regarding a prescription. They accept images of prescriptions written from European mainland veterinary clinics. Prices are good, certainly on some of the more expensive medications."

    "Easy to use website and step by step guidance to add the prescription. I made an error on my order and I was contacted within an hour to discuss and correct it. My order arrived the next day and was packed safely.
    Unfortunately and unexpectedly my furbaby passed away on the day of delivery, I contacted them and they agreed to take back the medication and I received confirmation the same next day.
    I spoken with customer services and they were so pleasant and helpful and even gave me their condolences.
    Overall I am extremely impressed.with this company and would highly recommend them to everyone.
    Thank you for everything."

    "The product I order regularly had changed and the system picked up the wrong product so I’ve ended up with a 12k bag of dog food (£52) that I can’t use. Customer services very unhelpful. Will not buy from them again."
