Meloxidyl 0.5 mg/ml oral suspension for cats 15ml.
Meloxidyl® 0.5 mg/ml oral suspension for cats is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for use in cats for:
– the alleviation of inflammation and pain in chronic musculo-skeletal disorders in cats
– the alleviation of mild to moderate post-operative pain and inflammation following surgical procedures, e.g. orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery.
Dosage and administration
Post-operative pain and inflammation following surgical procedures:
After initial treatment with meloxicam 2 mg/ml solution for injection for cats, continue treatment 24 hours later with Meloxidyl 0.5 mg/ml oral suspension for cats at a dosage of 0.05 mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight. The oral follow-up dose may be administered once daily (at 24 hour intervals) for up to four days.
Chronic musculo-skeletal disorders:
Initial treatment is a single oral dose of 0.1 mg meloxicam/kg body weight on the first day.
Treatment is to be continued once daily by oral administration (at 24-hour intervals) at a maintenance dose of 0.05 mg meloxicam/kg body weight.
Particular care should be taken with regard to the accuracy of dosing. The recommended dose should not be exceeded.
Shake well before use. To be administered orally either mixed with food or directly into the mouth.
The suspension can be given using the measuring syringe provided in the package.
The syringe fits onto the bottle and has a kg-body weight scale (from 1 kg to 10 kg) which corresponds to the maintenance dose. Thus for initiation of the therapy on the first day, twice the maintenance volume will be required.
A clinical response is normally seen within 7 days. Treatment should be discontinued after 14 days at the latest if no clinical improvement is apparent.
