Important Safety Information

As a class, cyclo-oxygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney, or liver side effects.  The most common side effects reported in field studies were vomiting and soft stool/diarrhea.  These are usually mild, but may be serious.  If side effects occur, pet owners should halt therapy and contact their veterinarian. Pets should be evaluated for pre-existing conditions and currently prescribed medications prior to treatment with METACAM, then monitored regularly while on treatment. Concurrent use with another NSAID, corticosteroid, or nephrotoxic medication should be avoided.

Liquid METACAM makes dosing easy for any sized dog

Whether the dog weighs just a few pounds or 120lb, liquid METACAM enables you to give the most precise dose. Unlike pills that may have to be split and could crumble, liquid METACAM fits large dogs, small dogs, and every dog in between!

Some veterinarians adjust a dog’s dose of medicine to find the lowest possible dose that still relieves osteoarthritis pain. This also helps each bottle of METACAM last longer, saving dollars for the dog owner. And liquid METACAM makes these pound-by-pound adjustments easier than ordinary pills.
