What is Metacam Oral Suspension?
Who is it for?
What are the benefits?
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?
Is there a generic equivalent available?
How is it given?
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.
