Product description

When your dog suffers from osteoarthritis, the cartilage between bones breaks down, resulting in inflammation and pain due to bone-on-bone contact. Canine osteoarthritis doesn’t just affect older dogs, it can happen at any age and be caused by developmental disorders like hip and elbow dysplasia, abnormal stress on joints due to obesity, trauma, or injury. When caught in the early stages, it can be easier to treat. Meloxidyl is indicated for the control of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis in dogs. Inflammation is part of the body’s natural defense mechanism, however, in some situations, inflammation is dangerous and can lead to severe damage to tissues and organs. Meloxidyl is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that helps reduce inflammation and pain, which will help mitigate the stress on the body. Meloxidyl comes in a tasty sweetened liquid oral suspension that is easy to give to your dog. It includes two dosing syringes for small and large dogs. Meloxidyl helps bring relief to your dog and increase his quality of life and mobility.

Active ingredients

Each ml of Meloxidyl contains 1.5 mg of Meloxicam

Indications for use

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

Administration and dosage

The actual dose to be given should be prescribed by the veterinarian.

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.
