Description

This product requires a Prescription from your Vet.

Metacam 0.5mg/ml Oral Suspension is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) specifically formulated for cats. Manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim, this prescription-only medication is designed to alleviate pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal disorders, including arthritis. Metacam helps improve the quality of life for cats suffering from chronic pain, allowing them to regain mobility and comfort.

Active Ingredients: The active ingredient in Metacam 0.5mg/ml Oral Suspension is Meloxicam, a potent NSAID. Each millilitre of the suspension contains 0.5mg of Meloxicam. Meloxicam works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals in the body responsible for causing pain and inflammation.

Dosage: Metacam should be administered orally, either directly into the mouth or mixed with food. The initial dose is 0.1 mg/kg body weight on the first day, followed by a maintenance dose of 0.05 mg/kg body weight once daily. It is essential to follow the veterinarian's prescription closely, as the correct dosage can vary depending on the cat's weight and specific condition.

Possible Side Effects: Like all medications, Metacam may cause side effects in some cats. Common side effects include:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lethargy

In rare cases, more severe side effects such as gastrointestinal ulcers, kidney or liver issues, and allergic reactions may occur. If any adverse reactions are observed, discontinue use immediately and consult your veterinarian.

Precautions:

  • Metacam is for use in cats only and should not be given to other animals.
  • Not suitable for use in pregnant or lactating cats, or cats with known hypersensitivity to Meloxicam.
  • Regular monitoring by a veterinarian is recommended during the treatment period.
  • Ensure the cat has access to plenty of fresh water while on this medication.

Storage Instructions: Store Metacam 0.5mg/ml Oral Suspension at room temperature, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Note: Metacam 0.5mg/ml Oral Suspension is a prescription-only medication and should only be used under the guidance and supervision of a qualified veterinarian. Always follow the prescribed dosage and administration instructions to ensure the safety and well-being of your cat.
