Metacam Oral Suspension is used to relieve mild to chronic pain and inflammation caused by musco-skeletal conditions. Conditions such as Osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, are chronic disorders that can intensify if left untreated. Metacam helps to manage the pain associated with such conditions, providing a better quality of life for your pet.
When given as directed by your vet, the active ingredient, affects the production of tissue relaxing hormones, producing anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. Each dose can be given accurately with an easy-to-use dosing syringe that is graduated depending on weight. Metacam is also honey flavoured making it highly palatable for your pet. Metacam 180ml Oral Suspension for Dogs is manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Limited and developed specifically for dogs. As such, it must never be used in other animals.

Features of Metacam For Dogs 180ml
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.
