No Taste and Well-Tolerated
Our German Shepherd had been on Rimadyl for a couple of years for her arthritis pain, and got more and more resistant to taking it. I tasted it and, like many anti-inflammation drugs, found that it was extremely bitter. We found Meloxicam when researching anti-inflammatory medications that have no taste. We get this as a suspension from a compounding pharmacy (she won't take pills#, and have been giving her 2ml a day for years, and she never minds. #Esp. since we "chase it" with 1/2 Denta Stick, which she loves.) It's been very effective. She's still not 100%, but she's 12 1/2 years old, and had pretty bad arthritis for years, and is doing well, with no stomach upset. We took her off of it for a week due to another issue, and within 3 days started to notice the difference, which proves it works.

so much better
i'm a doctor for adult people and i prescribe this drug often for arthritic patients. in simple terms, it's a cheaper version of celebrex for humans ($4 at the big box stores for a month). it's one of the few drugs in this class generally considered relatively safe in dogs. my 12 yo lab/border mix'es mind kept making promises her body couldn't keep. hence a pronounced limp after 5 minutes of frisbee and at times, listlessness. mobic has changed that dramatically and as rescues are prone to do, she's appreciative and best of all, happy again.

My vet prescribed this medication for my 13 year old Lab. She could not do steps anymore and was not walking good at all. Her hips were in bad shape and she has arthritis. She is now on Meloxicam and what a difference! She now can climb the steps and she walks so much better! She actually tries to gallop at times and acts so much happier! Thank you my Vet for this prescription! This has greatly improved her "quality" of life and had granted us more time with our dear Casey!

Meloxicam has worked miracles with my old dog. She couldn't climb stairs, or jump on the couch, her rear legs have arthritis, she's 14. One leg was starting to twist inward, then she went on this med. Honestly, it looks as if her leg has straightened. She even will give a small burst of speed when she's playing. I give it to her in the evening, so she can have a comfortable sleep period. I haven't noticed any negative side effects. She still goes up/down the stairs, with both rear legs hopping, but before, she couldn't take one stair. I give her half a tablet. She's acting like a 10 yo instead of a 14 yo and more so, she seems happy and pain free.

what is the dose for a 9 lb dog
ANSWERS (1)
Daily maintenance dose for a 9 pound canine that has been prescribed meloxicam is 0.4 mg every 24 hours. For a dog weighing 9 pounds the tablets are not an appropriate dosage form. We carry meloxicam in a liquid formulation called Metacam 0.5mg/ml.

ANSWERS (1)
The usual dose is 0.1 mg/lb for the first day followed by 0.05 mg/lb once a day thereafter. A 60 pound dose would take a dose of about 3 mg per day. The actual dose would be determined by your veterinarian.

QUESTION
how much do i give a 150lb dog
ANSWERS (1)
The recommended daily dose of Meloxicam for a 150 pound canine is 6.8 mg (0.1mg/Kg) every 24 hours. Meloxicam does come in 7.5 mg tablets which your veterinarian may recommend splitting the tablet to achieve the closest dose. Meloxicam also come comes in a liquid formulation called Metacam which can make it easier to measure out the appropriate dose. Before starting any new medication make sure to speak with your veterinarian about proper dosing to ensure if any dose adjustments may be necessary due to renal/hepatic dysfunctions or other comorbidities your pet may have, as well to screen for any medication interactions.

What is Meloxicam?

Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) prescription medication used to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness as a result of acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders such as osteoarthritis. Meloxicam works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. Meloxicam may also be used for purposes other than those listed here. Meloxicam is sold per tablet and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs & Puppies (6+ months of age)

Benefits:

  • Helps to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness
  • Easy-to-administer tablets
  • Sold per tablet

How does Meloxicam work?

Meloxicam works by reducing hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body.

Cautions:

Tell your veterinarian if your dog has: an allergy to aspirin or any other NSAID; an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach; liver, or kidney disease; congestive heart failure; fluid retention; bleeding disorders; heart disease or high blood pressure. Tell your veterinarian if your dog is pregnant or lactating.

Brand Name:

Mobic (Boehringer Ingelheim)

Generic Name:

meloxicam

What is the most important thing 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 0.1 mg/lb as an initial dose the first day, followed by 0.05 mg/lb once a day thereafter. Contact your 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.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Meloxicam to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has an allergy to aspirin or any other NSAID, an ulcer or bleeding in the stomach, liver or kidney disease, congestive heart failure, fluid retention, bleeding disorders, heart disease or high blood pressure. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should Meloxicam be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Meloxicam may be given with or without food. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Store Meloxicam at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What are the potential side effects of Meloxicam?

Contact your veterinarian if your 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. If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Meloxicam and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips; tongue or face; hives); muscle cramps; open sores in the mouth; seizures; abdominal cramping. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Meloxicam and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences headache, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, or constipation, depression, fatigue or weakness, dry mouth. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Meloxicam?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Meloxicam?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of Meloxicam overdose include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, loss of consciousness, drowsiness, headache, cardiac arrest, stomach pain, seizures, little or no urine production, and slow breathing.

What should I avoid while giving Meloxicam to my pet?

Many over the counter cough, cold, allergy and pain medicines contain aspirin or other NSAIDs similar to Meloxicam. Before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medications talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist.

What other drugs will affect Meloxicam:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given aspirin; another NSAID such as etodolac, carprofen or piroxicam; an over the counter cough, cold, allergy or pain medication; furosemide; or warfarin. Talk to your veterinarian before giving your pet any prescription or over the counter medicines.
