    Common Uses: Meloxicam is an oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used in dogs to control pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis (OA). While meloxicam is not a cure for osteoarthritis, it can control the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis and improve your dog's mobility. This medication should be given with food. Response varies but in most dogs, improvement will be seen in a few days. Meloxicam is available as an oral syrup in 5 different dropper bottle sizes.

    Indications: 

    What dogs/cats should not take this medication? Cats (this medication is for dogs only). Call your veterinarian immediately if your cat receives meloxicam. Has had an allergic reaction to the active ingredient meloxicam. Has had an allergic reaction (such as hives, facial swelling, or red or itchy skin) to aspirin or other NSAIDS. Is presently taking aspirin, other NSAIDs, or corticosteroids (unless directed by your veterinarian).

    Warnings: 

    Store in a tight, light resistant, childproof container at room temperature away from heat and direct sunlight. Keep this and all medication out of reach of children and pets. Call your physician immediately if you accidentally take this product. For use in dogs only . Do not use in cats.

    Directions: 

    The actual dose to be given should be prescribed by the veterinarian. Shake well before use, then remove cap. While meloxicam is not a cure for osteoarthritis, it can control the pain and inflammation of OA and improve your dog's mobility. Response will vary from dog to dog but can be quite dramatic. In most dogs, improvement can be seen in a matter of days. If Meloxicam is discontinued or not given as directed, your dog's pain and inflammation may come back. Dogs under 10 pounds (4.5 kg) - To prevent accidental overdosing of small dogs, administer drops on food only, never directly into the mouth. Carefully measure suspension onto food to assure that the correct dose is given before presentation of the food to the dog. The syringe provided with the meloxicam concentration of 0.5 mg/mL cannot be used to measure doses for dogs weighing <1 lb (0.45 kg). For dogs <1 lb (0.45 kg), the oral suspension can be given using the dropper bottle: 2 drops for each lb of body weight for the 0.5 mg/mL concentration (5 drops for each kilogram of body weight), dropped directly onto the food. For dogs between 1-10 pounds, the oral suspension can be given by drops or by using the measuring syringe provided in the package (see dosing procedure below). The syringe fits on to the bottle and has a scale beginning at 1 lb, 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 1 lb increment. Replace and tighten cap after use. Dogs over 10 pounds (4.5 kg) - Meloxicam may be either mixed with food or placed directly into the mouth. Particular care should be given with regard to the accuracy of dosing. The oral suspension can be given using the measuring syringe provided in the package (see dosing procedure below). The syringe fits on to the bottle and has a scale in pounds 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 1 lb increment. Alternatively, use the dropper bottle: 2 drops for each lb body weight for the 0.5 mg/mL concentration (5 drops for each kilogram of body weight). Replace and tighten cap after use.
