What is Meloxidyl?

Meloxidyl is a medicine for cats suffering from painful inflammation caused by surgery or musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis, and helps reduce pain. By reducing a cat’s pain, its quality of life can dramatically increase. It comes in a number of different forms including an oral suspension. It is available in a variety of doses, and should be taken as directed by your vet. 

After this treatment has reduced pain and inflammation, cat owners may notice a range of improvements such as increased mobility, energy, and willingness to engage in exercise. If your cat is hypersensitive to meloxicam – Meloxidyl’s active ingredient – then this product should be avoided.

Meloxidyl very rarely causes the following side effects: vomiting, loss of appetite, kidney failure, apathy, and softening of stools through to diarrhoea. Most of these side effects cease when treatment has been withdrawn.

How does Meloxidyl work?

Meloxicam – which is Meloxidyl’s active ingredient – blocks cyclo-oxygenase enzymes which are responsible for producing the prostaglandins which cause pain and inflammation. 

Put more simply, Meloxidyl stops the chemicals which cause inflammation from working, thus preventing inflammation from taking place. reducing the inflammation reduces the pain.

What are the benefits of Meloxidyl?

Pain and inflammation of any kind can be debilitating and significantly reduce your cat’s quality of life. Meloxidyl targets inflammatory pain’s root causes, and may help your cat live its best and happiest life.
