Product description

Meloxidyl (meloxicam) Oral Suspension is an FDA-approved generic meloxicam, with all the benefits of the pioneer product. Meloxidyl helps dogs get back to enjoying life, at a price that’s easier on you.

Meloxidyl is indicated for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs. Knowing more about the signs of osteoarthritis is a key first step in helping to improve your dog’s quality of life.

Meloxidyl is a sweetened suspension readily accepted by dogs. In a laboratory study where Meloxidyl was placed on the food, 100% of dogs ate the food.

Meloxidyl is convenient and allows a precise dosage. Every bottle of Meloxidyl includes 2 dosing syringes: a small syringe (blue print) for dogs under 15 lbs and a large syringe (green print) for dogs over 15 lbs. So your dog receives the exact dose of NSAIDs needed, down to the pound. No more, no less.

Active ingredients

Each milliliter of Meloxidyl 1.5 mg/mL Oral Suspension contains meloxicam equivalent to 1.5 milligrams and sodium benzoate (2.0 milligrams) as a preservative.

Indications for use

Meloxidyl is indicated for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs.

Administration and dosage

Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response. Meloxidyl Oral Suspension should be administered initially at 0.09 mg/lb (0.2 mg/kg) body weight only on the first day of treatment. For all treatments after day 1, Meloxidyl Oral Suspension should be administered once daily at a dose of 0.045 mg/lb (0.1 mg/ kg). The syringes are calibrated to deliver the daily maintenance dose in lbs.

The daily dose (0.045 mg/lb) contains 0.03 mL of Meloxidyl Oral Suspension for every 1 lb (0.45 kg) of dog body weight.

Directions for Administration:

Meloxidyl Oral Suspension is packaged with 2 sizes of dosing syringes. The small syringe (blue print) is calibrated for use in dogs under 15 lbs. The large syringe (green print) is calibrated for use in dogs 15 lbs or greater. Only administer Meloxidyl with the provided syringes. The container should never be used as a dropper bottle for administration of Meloxidyl.

Dogs under 15 lbs (6.8 kg)

Shake well before use, then remove cap. Meloxidyl Oral Suspension can be given either mixed with food or placed directly into the mouth. Particular care should be given with regard to the accuracy of dosing. To prevent accidental overdosing of small dogs, only use the small dosing syringe. The large syringe provided cannot be used to measure doses for dogs weighing less than 15 lbs (6.8 kg). For dogs less than 15 lbs, use the small dosing syringe (blue print) provided in the package (see dosing procedure below). The small dosing syringe fits onto the bottle and has dosing marks at 0.5 lb, then in 1 lb increments (ranging from 1 to 14 lbs), designed to deliver the daily maintenance dose of 0.05 mg/lb (0.1 mg/kg).

For dogs less than 1 lb (0.45 kg), Meloxidyl can be given using the 0.5 mark on the small dosing syringe.

For dogs between 1 - 14 lbs, Meloxidyl can be given using the marks on the small dosing syringe, beginning at 1 lb and ending at 14 lbs. When using the small dosing syringe, the dog’s weight should be rounded down to the nearest 1 lb increment. Replace and tighten cap after use.

Dogs 15 lbs (6.8 kg) and over

Shake well before use, then remove cap. Meloxidyl may be either mixed with food or placed directly into the mouth. Particular care should be given with regard to the accuracy of dosing.

For dogs 15 lbs or greater, use the large dosing syringe (green print) provided in the package (see dosing procedure below). The large dosing syringe fits on to the bottle and has dosing marks in 5 lb increments (ranging from 5 to 140 lbs), designed to deliver the daily maintenance dose of 0.05 mg/lb (0.1 mg/kg). When using the large syringe, the dog’s weight should be rounded down to the nearest 5 lb increment. Replace and tighten cap after use.
