What is the most important information I should know about Meloxicam:

Meloxicam is a prescription medication that is not FDA approved for veterinary use. However, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use Meloxicam in dogs. Meloxicam is available as 7.5 mg tablets. The usual dose in dogs is 0.1mg per pound as an initial dose the first day, followed by 0.05mg per pound once a day thereafter. Contact the veterinarian if the pet has bloody, black or tarry stools, blood in vomit, swelling or rapid weight gain due to fluid retention, unusual fatigue or weakness, yellowing of the eyes, excessive itching, abdominal pain or tenderness as these symptoms could indicate serious side effects.

Warning: Repeated use of meloxicam in cats has been associated with acute renal failure and death. Do not administer additional doses of injectable or oral meloxicam to cats.

Before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medications check with your veterinarian or pharmacist.
