is pepto bismal safe with metacam

18 lb Bichon has been vomiting for 12 hours. Is it safe to give Pepto Bismal until I can get to vet tomorrow?
Asked by: Frances
The active ingredient in Pepto Bismol contains aspirin, so if used too frequently or at high dosages, it can result in stomach ulcers in dogs. I recommend speaking with your veterinarian first to make sure Pepto Bismal is okay to give to your dog until you can make it in to see them.

I just ordered this product, meloxicam 7.5 mg. for my 25 lb. Bichon. I'm figurining I can give him either one half or one third tablet for his pronounced limping and can't jump on couch or bed anymore. Vet had prescribed 3 baby aspirin a day Please advise

Asked by: Sallt
Typical doses of meloxicam for dogs is 0.045 mg/lb daily. For a 25 lb dog, this would be about 1.1 mg daily. Meloxicam does requrie a prescription from a veterinarian. I recommend speaking with your veterinarian before giving meloxicam to your pet.

what is the liquid of meloxicam?

I am giving my 12 lb Chihuahua Metacam and it is only lasting me two weeks. At $35 a bottle that is $70 a month. I need something as good but not as expensive. That is why I was looking at Meloxicam as it would be a less expensive alternative. I like the liquid as I can put it into his food and love the weight measurement.
Asked by: Chere
Since your pet is so little, the Meloxicam 7.5 tablets are not a practical option as the dose is 0.6mg per day for a 12 pound dog. It's not possible to accurately get 0.6mg out of a 7.5mg tablet. There are other oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as Deramaxx, Previcox and Rimadyl (has a generic available) that a consultation with your veterinarian could determine to be more cost effective as well as provide a more accurate dose based on your dog's weight.

what dose would a 15 lb cocker spaniel need?

Asked by: susan
Meloxicam is dosed in dogs at 0.09mg/lb once daily. Therefore, your 15 lb Cocker will need 1.35mg which will be dificult to dose with the tablets. I would recommend you purchase the liquid which comes with a syringe that is marked to give the medication by the dog's weight, making it quite easy for the pet owner. The liquid has a mild honey flavor (yes, I have tasted it) and is readily accepted by most dogs.

What dose for a 50 pound lab that's 12 yrs. old.

My lab was just put on 1.2 mls. of Metacam. This is rather expensive & I was wondering if Meloxicam would be a good generic product to substitute. If it is not as good or better then I rather not use it. She takes pills well & it looks like 1/3 of a tab would equal the dose she is on by weight. How would we divide the pill in thirds? Our vet started her off with a mild dose & it has made a big difference. She is not on any other meds except for a Glucosomine tab each day.
Asked by: Hana's mom
The recommended dose for a 50 pound dog is 2.5mg per day of meloxicam which is 1/3 of a 7.5mg tablet. It would be tricky to try to get that exact dose. Cutting the tablet in quarters would give 1.88mg which is an underdose but may still be effective. Please consult with your veterinarian.

Can this pill be cut into 4 pieces?

Asked by: Bailey
I don't know - ask the vet. Some pills can't be cut. We get our Melox compounded in solution (I think from PetMed Express); we give her about 3/4 of a droperful every night (the max doseage for her size). Shake it first, and keep it in the fridge. That would work better than trying to get 4 pill pieces down.

Meloxicam and Benadryl

Can you give a dog both Meloxicam and Benedryl (or an antihistamine) at the same time? Or, will the Meloxicam help with dog allergies as well?
Asked by: Lisa J
Meloxicam will not help with allergies. You can give an antihistamine ( like Benedryl) together with the Meloxicam. It is very important that you make sure the antihistamine that you use does not have alcohol or aspirin in the ingredients. Even a generic may say on the front of the package, compare to the ingredients of Benedryl, and will contain alcohol. There are a couple of different kinds of Benedryl. Just check the ingredients and the inactive ingredients on the package and your best friend should be fine.

Meloxicam overdose

My 5 mth 6.6lb puppy, was given a overdose: .6ml, instead of 0.06 ml of meloxicam to relax him so he could have a xray, he was not bearing weight on lt hind leg.The Vet called and told me that they had nade a error and he was given a overdose of Meloxicam, which could cause liver, kidney damage, or a ulcer. Prior to the overdose, he was a Healthy puppy, no problems, all systems normal. He had been seen by three different vet/ during 7 seperate visits (all at the same clinic). Now he has a heart murmur 3-4/6LAS, and his liver level/ALT was 76 a wk before, when he was Neutered. after overdose it was 140, now it is 167. They stated he would need a Cardiac Ultra sound, and Liver testing , each was going to be over $300 each. After some talking, that they said, they would be responsibel for liver or kidney problems, they ran the liver profile: before eating 5, after eating greater than 30+, so they sent it out it came back 46? So they are going to continue to monitor this. But we are still fighting that they should be responsibe for the Cardiac testing, because now they want him to see a Cardiologist, which starts an $100 for the consult then $400 + for the testing. They are now saying he had the murmur, it must have been there, they just missed it, (at all 7 visits???) He was a very energetic, playful puppy, now my baby/puppy is sick, plays, but tires quickly! The heart murmur was only caught, when I took him to the ER for continued care the night of the overdose, (A totally different Clinic) Prior to this his cardiac has always been normal/ no murmur. I am wondering if he possibly had cardiac arrest, with the overdose, then they flushed his system to try and rid it of the Meloxicam for 2 days, plus the night in the ER. Maybe they overloaded his system? They want him to have a Cardiac workup, but will not cover it, its approx $500.+ to start. Would like to know if any one else has had issues with Meloxicam? Or what you think? By the way his leg is fine, probably a pulled muscle, although they never did do the Xray, because of the overdose. this all started 8/1/13
Asked by: JT2320
There has been no reports of Meloxicam causing a heart murmur; however, it cannot be totally ruled out. You may need to contact the manufacturer of the meloxicam to report this adverse event and get more information; the manufacturer of the brand Metacam is Boehringer Ingelheim.

Meloxicam is used for inflammation and pain. There should be no problem in using this for dog's that are diabetic. However, one of the side effects that are possible with meloxicam is weight gain due to fluid retention.

Mobic(meloxicam) oral suspension for humans contains xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is toxic to dogs in doses greater than 100mg/kilogram of xylitol per the pets body weight.

The usual dose of meloxicam for a 30 pound dog would be 1.5 mg once a day. This dose is not available using the 7.5 mg meloxicam tablet.

Talk to your vet about the drug and other options. Do NOT increase the dosage without discussing this with your vet. Possible symptoms of overdose include perforated ulcers. This site appears to carry the tablets and the oral suspension (Metacam).
