Metacam (Meloxicam oral suspension) is a FDA Approved non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory prescription medication used to help pets who suffer from a degenerative or inflammatory joint condition, such as arthritis. It helps alleviate pain, allowing your pet to live a happier and healthier life. NSAIDs such as Metacam improve your dog's overall mobility by relieving joint pain and inflammation. This prescription medication comes in an oral suspension form, so you can easily give it to your pet by using the syringe provided. Best of all, you can even disguise it in your pal's favorite wet food. Metacam is available in two different strengths (0.5 mg/ml and 1.5 mg/ml) to fit the needs of dogs of all sizes over the age of 6 months.
Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful degenerative joint disease in which joints become inflamed and swollen. Dogs with mild OA may have slight stiffness, while those with more severe cases may suffer from limping and lameness. The bones and joints most commonly affected are the hips, knees, elbows, shoulders, and spine. METACAM (meloxicam oral suspension) can help control pain and inflammation associated with OA in canine companions who are 6 months and older (1).
METACAM is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) designed to relieve canine joint pain and help restore your furry friend’s natural, normal movement. It is available in a whisker-licking, honey-flavored liquid that’s easy to administer. With METACAM, giving the precise veterinary-recommended dose to your dog is easy—you can provide safe, effective relief without worrying about splitting pills to find the correct dose.
METACAM is proven safe and effective with over 1,000,000 doses sold (2). One small dose of METACAM provides effective pain relief to help restore your furry sidekick’s mobility all day long.
While OA can’t be cured, it can be effectively managed with pain-relieving medicines as part of a multi-modal approach. An NSAID, like METACAM, is just one part of the solution. Your veterinarian will help you determine the best combination of diet and weight management, exercise, physical therapy and lifestyle adjustments to help your dog live more comfortably, and become more active!

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: METACAM (meloxicam oral suspension) is for use in dogs only. Repeated use of meloxicam in cats has been associated with acute renal failure and death. Do not administer additional injectable or oral meloxicam to cats. As a class, cyclo-oxygenase inhibitory, NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney, or liver side effects. The most common side effects reported in field studies were vomiting and soft stool/diarrhea. These are usually mild but may be serious. If side effects occur, dog parents should halt therapy and contact their veterinarian. Dogs should be evaluated for pre-existing conditions and currently prescribed medications prior to treatment with METACAM, then monitored regularly while on therapy. Concurrent use with another NSAID, corticosteroid, or nephrotoxic medication should be avoided or monitored closely. The safe use of METACAM in dogs younger than 6 months of age, dogs used for breeding, or in pregnant or lactating dogs has not been evaluated. Please refer to the prescribing information for complete details.
Veterinarians have recommended METACAM for over 20 years. This liquid NSAID helps dogs with OA get back in the game. The liquid form is easy to give, and it lets your vet determine the lowest possible dose that will be effective for your dog. Dosing is convenient and accurate—no more splitting pills!

My little dog isn't a great candidate for knee surgery but this is helping enough that he can walk without so much pain and is getting around much better!
The medication is fine, the delivery was fine. The bottle is Awful. This medicine comes in a bottle with a dropper top, but the instructions are for using the included syringe, which is not compatible. One of the syringes was useless as it has markings for weight of dog instead of volume. (This prescription is for a cat) The bottle also leaks like crazy, and considering the medication needs to be shaken before dispensing, this is extra terrible. It has been extremely annoying to attempt to measure out and dispense this medicine, entirely due to the absolutely stupid bottle.
Meloxicam and gabapentin are a great combination to control my dogs cancer related pain.
my baby moves easier now and is stronger and less pain
This product helps my little chiweenie with his back pain
Product is good. Shipping is terrible. Pharmacy refused to refill and send another bottle after mine took 9 days to get 75 miles.
I've been using this for my dog for a few weeks. The medication is very difficult to put into the syringe without losing quite of bit of medication when you remove the syringe from the bottle. Very dissappointed!!! Losing money everyday with spillage out of the bottle. Medication does seem to be working a little so far.
came with 2 syringes made for cat dosage. i am a cat not a dog. vet didn't give any.
I ordered this prescription on Chewy because my vet was having a hard time getting it for us. However, the order process for prescriptions takes a couple of weeks. Make sure to order well in advance so as not be caught without needed medications for your fur babies.
This is a very good drug for dogs after surgery. My dog has taken this for 2 successive surgeries and he responded well during the treatment.
