What is Metacam for Dogs?

Metacam for Dogs

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 Most of these side effects cease when treatment has been withdrawn.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.
