Meloxicam is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory (NSAID) drug of the oxicam class. Each milliliter of Meloxidyl® 1.5 mg/mL Oral Suspension contains meloxicam equivalent to 1.5 milligrams and sodium benzoate (2.0 milligrams) as a preservative. The chemical name for Meloxicam is 4-Hydroxy 2-methyl-N-(5-methyl-2-thiazolyl)-2H-1,2 benzothiazine-3-carboxamide-1, 1-dioxide. The formulation is a yellowish viscous suspension.




  • Helps dogs get back to enjoying life, at a price that’s easier on you.
  • Indicated for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs. Knowing more about the signs of osteoarthritis is a key first step in helping to improve your dog’s quality of life.
  • Sweetened suspension readily accepted by dogs. In a laboratory study where Meloxidyl was placed on the food, 100% of dogs ate the food.
  • Convenient and allows a precise dosage. Every bottle of Meloxidyl includes 2 dosing syringes: a small syringe (blue print) for dogs under 15lbs and a large syringe (green print) for dogs over 15 lbs. So your dog receives the exact dose of NSAIDs needed, down to the pound. No more, no less.
  • Effective. In two field studies involving 277 dogs of all breeds and ages, Meloxicam was shown to be effective at reducing pain and increased overall mobility as early as 8 days.
  • Safe. Six weeks and six months studies, at up to 5 times the dose of meloxicam, revealed no significant clinical adverse reactions.


Store at controlled room temperature 68-77°F (20-25°C).

Meloxidyl Oral Suspension is packaged with 2 sizes of dosing syringes. The small syringe (blue print) is calibrated for use in dogs under 15 lbs. The large syringe (green print) is calibrated for use in dogs 15 lbs or greater.
  1. Shake bottle well. Push down and unscrew bottle top. Attach the dosing syringe to the bottle by gently pushing the end onto the top of the bottle.
