Metacam for Dogs
Metacam for dogs is an anti-inflammatory medicine used for the treatment of pain and swelling caused by musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis. It is also often prescribed for use after an operation or injury.
Metacam contains meloxicam, which belongs to a class of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It acts by blocking an enzyme called cyclooxygenase which is involved in the production of prostaglandins. As prostaglandins are substances that trigger inflammation, pain and fever, meloxicam is effective in reducing these symptoms.
Available in 10ml, 32ml, 100ml or 180ml bottles - Metacam for dogs is a prescription medication and will only be supplied once a valid prescription has been sent.
