What is Metacam?
Metacam is a medicine for dogs suffering from painful inflammation caused by musculoskeletal conditions, and helps keep pain at a minimal level. By reducing a dog’s pain, its quality of life can dramatically increase. It comes in a number of different forms including an oral suspension and tablets. 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, dog owners may notice a range of improvements such as increased mobility, energy, and willingness to engage in exercise.Usually an improvement will be noticed in 3 to 4 days.
If your dog is hypersensitive to meloxicam – Metacam’s active ingredient – then this product should be avoided. Metacam 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 Most of these side effects cease when treatment has been withdrawn.
Metacam should not be used on dogs that are pregnant or lactating, or weigh less than 2kg.
How does Metacam work?
Meloxicam – which is Metacam’s active ingredient – blocks cyclo-oxygenase enzymes which are responsible for producing the prostaglandins which cause pain and inflammation.
Put more simply, Metacam stops the chemicals which cause painful inflammation from working, thus preventing swelling from taking place.
Your veterinary surgeon will advise you on a dosage amount. Shake well before use. Metacam comes with a weight graduated syringe for ease of administration. It is recommended that Metacam is always given with food. The medication can be mixed with food or administered directly into the mouth and followed by a meal.
What are the benefits of Metacam?
Pain and inflammation of any kind can be debilitating and significantly reduce your dog’s quality of life. Metacam targets inflammatory pain’s root causes, thus helping your dog live its best and happiest life.
