A non non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) indicated for the alleviation of inflammation and pain in acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders in dogs.
Meloxidyl is available in 10ml 32ml and 100ml bottles for dogs.
Dosage and administration
To be administered orally via mixing with food. Shake well before use. Initial treatment is a single dose of 0.2 mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight on the first day. Treatment is to be continued once daily by oral administration (at 24-hour intervals) at a maintenance dose of 0.1 mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight.
Particular care should be taken with regard to the accuracy of dosing. The suspension can be given using the measuring syringes provided in the package. The syringe fits onto the bottle and has a kg-body weight scale, which corresponds to the maintenance dose (i.e. 0.1 mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight). Thus, for the first day, twice the maintenance volume will be required.
The suspension could be administered using the smallest syringe for dogs less than 7 kg bodyweight (one graduation corresponding to 0.5 kg of bodyweight) or the largest syringe for dogs over 7 kg body weight (one graduation corresponding to 2.5 kg of bodyweight).
A clinical response is normally seen within 3 – 4 days. Treatment should be discontinued after 10 days if no clinical improvement is apparent.
Avoid the introduction of contaminants during use.
