Metacam NSAID Suspension for Dogs

Osteoarthritis is a common condition in older dogs. If it’s causing your canine companion pain and discomfort, talk to your veterinarian about Metacam. This prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) reduces swelling and pain so your dog feels more comfortable and can be more mobile.

  • Eases joint pain and inflammation in dogs
  • Reduces post-surgical swelling
  • Easy to dose liquid

 

NSAIDs are medications that stop certain cells in the body from producing the chemicals that cause swelling and pain. Prescription Metacam is a proven effective treatment for dogs suffering from inflammation due to osteoarthritis.  Veterinarians may also prescribe this medication for dogs that have just had surgery. Metacam comes in a flavored oral suspension that’s easy to administer.

 

What you should know about Metacam:

  • Talk to your veterinarian before using this product.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses.
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

  • Q:

    How long can we keep giving our 13 year old, 114 lb, Golden Retriever this medication.  
    Asked on 1/2/2015 by Terry41 from Mesa, AZ, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Metacam is included in a drug class called Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs or ‘NSAIDs’. Metacam is a commonly used drug for long term treatment of osteoarthritis symptoms in dogs. Metacam is considered to be safe for dogs and many veterinarians will use this drug as a first-line treatment for long-term pain management. However, it is important to avoid giving your pet more than one NSAID at a time as this can increase their risk of side effects such as stomach upset. Please consult your veterinarian with any concerns about switching or discontinuing any of your pets medications.

  • Q:

    can you give Regulan for stomach upset if dog is taking Metacam?
    Asked on 11/11/2014 by Mcclellandclan from Huntsville, AL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      The decision to use metoclopramide for the treatment of gastrointestinal upset secondary to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory use would be made after a careful evaluation of your dog by your veterinarian. While it does not appear to be routine to use metoclopramide for this indication, it may be appropriate for your pet. Consult with your veterinarian prior to administering metoclopramide to your dog.

      Thank youm

  • Q:

    When we dose out the Metacam to pets in individual doses in a syringe should we be covering the syringe with tape? dose sunlight affect the drugs potency?
    Asked on 10/17/2013 by Colleen

    1 answer

    • A:

      Colleen,

      If you are dosing out medication to be stored in syringes, we would recommend to protect the medication from sunlight either by using amber syringes or by storing in a light resistant container.  Photo-stability studies on meloxicam did show a slight degradation in the samples not protected from light.  Using the clear syringe provided with the Metacam medication is recommended when dosing out the medication immediately prior to administering.

      Thank you,

Controls pain

Comments about Boehringer Ingelheim Metacam Oral Suspension:

My dog is on two different pain meds, my vet added this and it makes my large dog much more comfortable. It's allowed us to keep him around longer. He is 14, a large dog who has back problems. We thought we were going to have to put him down but this medication has made all the difference in the world. He is plugging along, goes out for a walk every day (a short walk).

Comments about Boehringer Ingelheim Metacam Oral Suspension:

I've been using this medicine for several years. I have a 16 year old Golden Retriever and she has arthritis in her hips. This medication really helps her get around easier without making her tired, or have any other side effects. Easy to administer-it's a liquid with a syringe, so you can just squeeze it into her mouth. You don't have to worry about her spitting out a pill.

Comments about Boehringer Ingelheim Metacam Oral Suspension:

We have a 15 year old Chihuahua who was having trouble with her hind legs. We have had her on the metacam for about 6 weeks and have seen a remarkable improvement in how she moves. You can still see she has issues but seems much better.
