Metacam Oral Suspension for Dogs contains Meloxicam, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), licensed to treat pain & inflammation associated with both acute & chronic musculoskeletal conditions in the dog.
It also is antipyretic (lowers fevers), anti-endotoxic, anti-exudative & has a low ulcerogenic potential. It works by inhibiting the body from synthesising prostaglandins, which facilitate pain & trigger inflammatory processes & pyrogens (substances which cause a fever).
It can be administered directly into the dogs mouth or mixed up in a small feed.
This product requires a prescription from your vet & will only be dispatched once we receive this prescription.
