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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bueller Love the Easy of administration
This product must be tasty because my bulldog eats it right out of the applicator. It's his fav as my bulldog suffers from a nasty back problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy88 Great product to be used with close veterinary supervision.
Our 75 pound, 9 yr old golden retriever - border collie cross has improved dramatically after 6 months on liquid meloxicam. She has both hip dysplasia and spondylosis. In addition to diet and exercise, she has 20 mg of human famoditine (Pepcid AC) at least 20 minutes before the Metacam to reduce stomach irritation. In the evening, we also give her a human Tums. Never give meloxicam on an empty stomach and measure carefully. Now that the weather is warmer, she has lost 4 pounds and is no limping, we are going to reduce her meloxicam to every other day. She also gets a Dasuquin with MSM daily and Tramadol when she is limping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizzaboo Excellent Pain Relief
Our 110 pound, 12 year old, black lab mix started taking this about 1 year ago, when we came home and he couldn't stand up on his own due to arthritis pain. I believe this medicine saved his life. In the past year he is back to daily walks, which has increased his hip and leg muscles. He's back to his younger health and muscle tone. We're at 70lb dose daily which seems to work. I squirt the liquid directly into his mouth before his evening meal. Couldn't be easier and he licks it right up. After reading some of the other comments I may try to reduce to every other day. This medicine is worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Medication for Arthritis Pain
Our second dog, Honey, took Metacam for years and it worked well for her arthritis. Our 16 year old dog Lotto has taken it for most of his life for arthritis pain; his dosage was increased a bit this years and it has worked for him, too. And it is easy to take as it is in liquid form and I just add the correct dosage to his dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 Miracle/deadly
My 7 1/2 year old male Maltese has vertebral disc disease and had a recent neck surgery. He also has torn Acls in both back knees(needs surgery) and was on this drug for a short period of time and completely bled out, no shock, blood pressure or anything(completely bled out). My awesome Vet saved him for a second time as he had a previous liver shunt surgery he did very well from. Be VERY VERY careful..do NOT fudge on the dosage. It was great until.....Riley is always in pain...
