Alleviation of inflammation and pain in both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders in dogs.
Oral use. Initial treatment is a single dose of 0.2 mg meloxicam/kg body weight on the first day. Treatment is to be continued once daily by oral administration (at 24-hour intervals) at a maintenance dose of 0.1 mg meloxicam/kg body weight. Alternatively, therapy may be initiated with a solution for injection containing 5 mg meloxicam/ml. Each chewable tablet contains 1 mg or 2.5 mg meloxicam, which corresponds to the daily maintenance dose for a 10 kg body weight dog, or a 25 kg body weight dog, respectively. Each chewable tablet can be halved for accurate dosing according to the individual body weight of the animal. The tablets can be administered with or without food, are flavoured and are taken by most dogs voluntarily. The use of a meloxicam containing oral suspension for dogs may be considered for an even more precise dosing. For dogs weighing less than 4 kg the use of meloxicam containing oral suspension for dogs is recommended. A clinical response is normally seen within 3-4 days. Treatment should be discontinued after 10 days if no clinical improvement is apparent. To ensure correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing or overdosing.
