What is Metacam Oral Suspension?
Metacam is used to reduce inflammation and pain associated with arthritis.

Who is it for?
Metacam is for dogs. The safe use of Metacam in dogs less than 6 months of age and in pregnant, breeding, or nursing dogs has not been evaluated.

What are the benefits?

* An easy-to-administer osteoarthritis pain management drug for dogs
* This oral suspension has a palatable honey taste dogs easily accept
* Used safely worldwide for more than 10 years

Metacam is easy to dose, because of the convenient graduated oral syringe. Metacam is the only non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) available for use as a liquid, which allows for easy and accurate dosing for dogs of all sizes.

Arthritis cannot be cured, but the combination of a healthy lifestyle, weight, joint care supplements, and the appropriate NSAID can help your dog live the quality of life he deserves.

How does Metacam work?
Metacam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). These types of drugs inhibit the cell's production of chemicals that trigger inflammation. Various NSAIDs work differently on different dogs, so if you think your dog is suffering from the pain of arthritis, discuss the use of a NSAID, including Metacam, with your veterinarian.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
No.

How is it given?
Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

Metacam is an oral product to be given by mouth. Shake the oral suspension well before use and measure the dose using the syringe provided by the manufacturer. To prevent accidental overdosing of small dogs, administer drops on food only, never directly into the mouth.

For long-term treatment, use the lowest dose needed to provide relief. For arthritic conditions, it may need to be given periodically for the animal's lifetime.

What results can I expect?
Metacam does not cure arthritis but can effectively manage symptoms of pain and inflammation. The response varies from dog to dog but can be dramatic. Pain relieving effects can generally be seen within hours of giving Metacam. Improvement of inflammation can generally be seen after several days. Since Metacam is not a cure for arthritis, the signs may come back if Metacam is discontinued.

What form(s) does it come in?
Metacam is available as an oral suspension.
