Metacam is a nonsteroidal ant-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Metacam works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. Metacam is used to reduce pain, inflammation and stiffness as a result of acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders such as osteoarthritis. Metacam may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

  • Also used as a fever reducer
  • Effectively treats pain and inflammation
  • Gives your dog more mobility
  • Palatable taste
  • Can be administered directly into your dog's mouth, or mixed in your dog's food

Shake well before use, then remove cap. Replace and tighten cap after use.

Carefully measure the correct dose before presenting the food for your pet. To prevent accidental overdosing of small dogs, never administer drops directly into the mouth.

The syringe provided with the meloxicam concentration of 1.5 mg/mL cannot be used to measure doses for dogs weighing less than 5 lbs (2.3 kg). Metacam Oral Suspension can be given using the dropper bottle: one drop for each pound of body weight for the 1.5 mg/mL concentration (two drops for each kilogram of body weight), dropped directly onto the food.

For dogs between 5 - 10 pounds, Metacam Oral Suspension can be given by drops or by using the measuring syringe provided in the package. The syringe fits on to the bottle and has a scale beginning at 5 lbs, designed to deliver the daily maintenance dose (0.05 mg/lb or 0.1 mg/kg). When using the syringe, the dog's weight should be rounded down to the nearest 5 pound increment.


Store at controlled room temperature 59° - 86℉ (15° - 30℃).


Not for use in humans. Keep this and all medications out of reach of children. Consult a physician in case of accidental ingestion by humans. For oral use in dogs only.
