Does your dog suffer from osteoarthritis, arthritis, lameness, pain, and inflammation as a result of acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders like disco-spondylosis, arthropathy and soft tissue injuries? Your best choice for your dog’s care is Metacam, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Metacam is for dogs that have shown allergies to NSAID based medications.
Side Effects and Warnings
The most common side effects are vomiting, soft stools, diarrhea, and lack of appetite. Dogs that are dehydrated or have preexisting renal, cardiovascular, or hepatic problems may be at risk for renal toxicity as a side effect. Metacam should not be taken in conjunction with other anti-inflammatory drugs.
10 mL, 1.5 mg/mL
32 mL, 1.5 mg/mL
100 mL, 1.5 mg/mL
15 mL, 0.5 mg/mL
180 mL, 1.5 mg/mL
Should be stored at room temperature. Protect from light, moisture, and heat.
Metacam is for use in dogs of at least 6 months of age. It is to be administered once daily; dosage is adjusted according to the weight of the dog, as indicated on the accompanying syringe. Shake before use; then, after measuring the medicine into the syringe, push the plunger to empty it into the dog’s food or mouth (immediately before or after feeding).

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyLynn Big benefit!
My girl, Zahra, suffers from hip dysplasia and 2 years ago my vet suggested using Metacam on a daily basis because he' d had such great results with it, not to mention the dogs he had placed on it seemed to suffer fewer side effects than other medications. Well, he was right! My girl has done great using Metacam! It's easy to administer. I just squirt it right in her mouth after she eats and she doesn't mind it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatM62 Works well for arthritis
My 11 year old greyhound had side effects from other drugs perscribed for artritis. Metacam is easy to deliver orally and works for her pain and discomfort.

We started giving Metacam to our Bernese Mountain Dog mix about 6 months ago. Without Metacam he would be unable to walk, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for pain relief for their dog.

by Mitzysmom No more limping!
This is the same medication I take for arthritis (Meloxicam) but at a lower dosage. It works well and can be added to food. Mitzy no longer limps and is once again a happy pug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NoeBunnyLover Best for arthritic bunnies!
I thought my Homer was a goner. Thank the goddesses that I have a great friend who said I think he is just in pain from his old creaky legs....maybe he has arthritis. So I got some Metacam from the vet...and two days later, my wonderful boy was back eating and moving well. He is still doing great, eight months later, and once a day in the morning does it. Some buns love the flavor, not Homer. So I give him the med orally and a grape as a reward. He loves it. But you may be able to get your sweets loving buns or animals to take it without any bribe...or put it on a piece of banana....good luck. I tried, but still, Homer is smart. So, every morning...but my boy is here, and I love him. Metacam saved my wonderful 11 year old retired lab bunny....YAY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Taylor Such a deal!
I rescued a ten year old chihuahua who had been severely neglected. When I got her, she could barely walk more than a few steps and was in obvious pain from the arthritis in her hips. My vet recommended metacam and within two days she was literally running around our living room playing with us. I couldn't believe the difference! She loves to eat every bite of the food we give her so I just squirt her dose onto her food and she doesn't even know it's there. The only downside is it can get kind of pricey. Luckily, I found PetCareRx which offers the meds for $20 less than my vet. It is absolutely worth the money and I would go without just to see the amazing difference in my pup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vytas4458 Metacam works wonderfully
Metacam is an effective antiinflammatory. My dog likes the taste and he will lick it out of a small bowl so I don't have to force a syringe into his mouth. He has hip dysplasia and it allows him to remain active and hike with his family. It is only administered once a day.
