Product Details

If your dog suffers from a degenerative or inflammatory joint condition such as arthritis, consider Metacam in order to relieve his/her pain which should help your canine companion to live a healthy, enjoyable life.

What is Metacam? Metacam is a type of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication that is commonly recommended by veterinarians in order to relieve pain, inflammation, and other symptoms associated with arthritis in dogs.

What are the benefits of Metacam? :
  • Liquid suspension allows easy, convenient and accurate dosing for dogs of all sizes.
  • Palatable taste dogs easily accept.
  • May be used as long-term treatment for chronic arthritis in dogs.

Formulated for: dogs. There are no safety studies regarding the use of Metacam in dogs less than 6 months of age or in pregnant, breeding, or nursing dogs.

How is this medication given? Metacam is commonly prescribed to be given once a day but your veterinarian will determine the exact dosing regimen for your dog.

Metacam should be given by mouth (orally). Shake the liquid well before use. You can measure your dogs exact dose using the syringe provided by the manufacturer. You can give this medication on your dogs food or directly in your dogs mouth. Giving Metacam in the food is commonly recommended for more accurate dosing in small dogs.The goal is to use the lowest dose necessary in order to provide relief especially if Metacam in used long-term.

How does this medication work? Metacam is a type of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID). NSAIDs inhibit the synthesis of certain body chemicals called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals that are released throughout your pet's bloodstream that can result in pain. Inhibiting the production of prostaglandins can effectively reduce pain in your dog making him/her more comfortable.

What results can I expect? Metacam can help manage your dogs symptoms associated with his/her arthritis or other inflammatory condition including pain but is not a cure as there is no cure for arthritis. Symptoms can be relieved within hours to days but can vary from dog to dog. You should notice less pain and increased mobility. Symptoms may reoccur if Metacam is discontinued.

What Form(s) does Metacam come in? Metacam comes in liquid.

My Paco, a chihuahua mix ,is about 14. He has become less active and is blind. His vet suggested this medication. I saw no change in his behavior when taking it. For me, with arthritis in my hands the measuring of the medication was unnecesarily complex and the cost was out of line with the results. Way too much. .

    Easy to give this medication to my 100lb Lab. Helps him with his pain quickly from arthritis. After a few straight days of administering I am able to drop back to every other day or more.

      I have found that once the discomfort is under control I only have to give to Honeybee every 2 or 3 days. She is doing great.

        Comments about Metacam Anti-Inflammatory Oral Suspension For Dogs:

        I have a 13 year old Shih Tzu. She has a bone in her hip that isn't attached and she fell a few months ago, spraining her hip. The vet recommended Metacam. Usually I have a terrible time getting her to take any medication but she actually wants to lick the syringe to take the medicine. I have noticed a great difference in her movements. First she couldn't even stand without falling over but now she is wanting to try to run (like a rabbit with both back legs at the same time), but still she is so much better. I appreciate finding this medicine and it is worth any cost to see my dog happy and not falling over.

          Comments about Metacam Anti-Inflammatory Oral Suspension For Dogs:

          We have a 12 year old lab that we have been giving Metacam to daily. You can definitely notice a difference that she is more comfortable. The only thing that you have to be careful of is that it can effect a dog's kidneys so the vet orders a blood test every 6 months to make sure that it is not more damaging her. I would definitely recommend petfooddirect for your products as the Metacam was much more reasonable. Thank you petfooddirect.
