Directions

Dosage and administration – Initial treatment is a single dose of 0.2mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight (i.e 1.33ml/10kg bodyweight)on the first day. Treatment is to be continued once daily by oral administration (at 24 hour interval) at a maintenance dose of 0.1mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight (i.e 0.667ml/10kg bodyweight).

For longer term treatment, once clinical response has been observed (after 4 days), the dose can be adjusted to the lowest effective individual dose reflecting that the degree of pain and inflammation associated with chronic musculo-skeletal disorders may vary over time.

Particular care should be taken with regard to the accuracy of dosing. Please carefully follow the instructions of the veterinarian.

For oral use. To be administered with food or directly into the mouth. Shake well before use.

The suspension can be given using either of the two measuring syringes provided in the package. The syringes fit onto the bottle and have a kg-bodyweight scale which corresponds to the maintenance dose (i.e. 0.1mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight). Thus for initiation of the therapy on the first day, twice the maintenance volume will be required.

Alternatively therapy may be initiated with Meloxaid 5mg/ml solution for injection.

A clinical response is normally seen within 3-4 days. Treatment should be discontinued after 10 days at the latest, if no clinical improvement is apparent.

Avoid introduction of contamination during use.

Do not use in pregnant or lactating animals.

Do not use in animals suffering from gastrointestinal disorders such as irritation and haemorrhage, impaired hepatic, cardiac or renal function and haemorrhagic disorders.

Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.

Do not use in dogs less than 6 weeks of age.

People with known hypersensitivity to NSAIDs should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product.
