Ingredients Flunixin Meglumine Meloxicam
Does it have long-term side effects? Repeated dermal contact to high concentrations may cause severe skin irritation. Prolonged inhalation may produce serious lung effects. Repeated ingestion or inhalation of high doses may cause internal bleeding, predominantly of the gastrointestinal tract. GI abnormalities (vomiting, soft stools, diarrhea, and inappetance) were the most common adverse reactions associated with the administration of meloxicam. In rare situations, death has been reported as an outcome of the adverse events listed above. Renal failure has been reported as an outcome of repeated oral dosing of cats.
Cautions In horses, isolated reports of localized reactions following I.M. injection, particularly in the neck, have been received. These include localized swelling, sweating, induration, and stiffness. In rare instances in horses, fatal or nonfatal clostridial infections or other infections have been reported in association with I.M. use. In rare instances, anaphylactic-like reactions, some of which have been fatal, have been reported, primarily following I.V. use. Contact the veterinarian if the pet has bloody, black or tarry stools, blood in vomit, or swelling or rapid weight gain due to fluid retention. Do not us on cats.
What are Customers saying Pros N/A We moved and have a new vet who I asked if she had any ideas for improvement. Within two weeks of her being on Metacam, her whole life has changed. She, by her expression, feels SO much better, tries to bounce along -- still can't walk well -- and is barking and playing like she hasn't in five years!!!! We have a new dog!
What are Customers saying Cons N/A ...may cause kidney failure.
Vet Recommendations N/A Metacam is a very effective nonsteroidal anti inflammatory medication that has proven very effective in dogs.  I have found it especially useful in very smaller dogs, where it is quite helpful in managing arthritis and pain, as well as helpful in reducing fevers as well. The only occasional side effects I have seen with this product is digestive upset, as well as even rare liver or kidney complications.  I give this product an overall ranking of a 4.5 out of 5.
