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 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 is honey flavoured and is easily taken by cats. It is sold with a dosing syringe to enable easy administering. It can be added onto their food or directly into their mouth.
The dosage instructions are for guidance only. Please always consult your Vet.

Excellent service. They even called me to confirm the details of my order were I had input the incorrect dosage.
It all arrived before time and I was very pleased because Sparky has dry eye and he must have this drug. Plus it helps the eyes
Excellent quick service. Excellent price compared to other companies. Will definitely buy from here again.
The service is always very quick and easy to use. Staff are always very happy to help when you speak to them on the telephone. Very competitive price.
Excellent service every time we use online service and so much cheaper than buying direct from veterinary practice even with paying for private prescription.
