What is it?
Metacam® chewable tablets contain a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and are used to reduce pain and inflammation in dogs.
Metacam® chewable tablets can be used for both chronic (long-term) musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis, and acute (sudden and short-lived) musculoskeletal disorders, such as an injury.
Metacam® chewable tablets for dogs are available in two strengths:
• 1mg tablets
• 2.5mg tablets
How is it administered?
Metacam® chewable tablets can be given with or without food and are flavoured so that most dogs will readily accept them. Each chewable tablet can be halved for accurate dosing according to the individual body weight of the dog.
More precise dosing may be achieved using Metacam® oral suspension for dogs. For dogs weighing less than 4 kg, the use of Metacam® oral suspension for dogs is recommended.
Metacam® chewable tablets can only be obtained with a prescription. For further information about using Metacam® chewable tablets, see the package leaflet or contact your vet or pharmacist.
