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 and acute (sudden and short-lived) musculoskeletal disorders, such as an injury. In dogs, Metacam is used to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation following orthopaedic (e.g. fracture operation) and soft tissue surgery.

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 Oral Suspension is available in 10ml, 32ml, 100ml or 180ml bottles. Please note the provided syringe doses up to 35kg.

The suspension should be administered orally, either mixed with food or directly into the mouth using either the drop dispenser of the bottle (for very small dog breeds) or the measuring syringe provided in the box. Full instructions on the use of Metacam for dogs are included.

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.

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