Meloxidyl reduces pain and inflammation in other conditions too, and can be prescribed for any condition where these properties are likely to be of benefit.

35 Unreliable supply
Verified Purchase

By on 8 June 2021

The product is fine, but I've been trying to reorder for several weeks and still no stock available, not great when your furbaby relies on his meds for pain relief - very frustrating.

Meloxidyl v lexical v metacam


is there strength / make up difference between the above, if so what

  • VioVet Staff

I assume you mean Meloxidyl vs Loxicom vs Metacam.
These products are all the same in terms of actvie ingredient. They have different concentrations depending on the product chosen, e.g. cat vs dog vs horse versions etc. These differences are the same throughout the brands though, for example Loxicom for dogs will be the same concentration as Meloxidyl for dogs.

Other medicines with meloxidyl


Can this drug be taken with other painkillers off the vet? in particular paracetemol from the vet

  • VioVet Staff

Yes Meloxoidyl (meloxicam) can be used safely alongside paracetemol. I strongly advise following your vet's advice on doseage and treatment though, you should run any medication changes past your vet.

How long will 100ml last


I have. 36kg lab, how long will 100ml bottle last, dosage 3.6mg daily?

  • VioVet Staff

A 100ml bottle will last you roughly 41 days at the maintenance dose for your 36kg dog.

overdose of meloxidyl

Can anyone tell me what problems can be caused by an overdose of meloxidyl in my dog please

  • VioVet Staff

This is a very safe and effective drug, but side effects are certainly possible. The most common side effect of overdose would be vomiting and or diarrhoea (possibly with blood). They can become extremely serious if the medication is continued despite these effects. If the dog is dehydrated when the medicine is given, kidney damage is also possible. If your dog shows vomiting or diarrhoea, you should stop the medication and call your vet. Most dogs can in fact cope with a high overdose and not notice it at all, but some will suffer.

My vet has prescribed Meloxidyl for my 12 yr old labrador who had developed arthritis due to a tear in his leg muscle. A colleague has suggested I give my labrador Cortaflex. I would appreciate your professional advice as to whether or not my lab can have both or should I persist in just giving him the meloxidyl that our vet has prescribed.

  • VioVet Staff

There are a great many nutritional supplements which are claimed to benefit dogs like yours. There is a small amount of good evidence to back up the claims for some of the products. Cortaflex Dog & Cat Liquid is just one of many. There are no good comparative studies to try and evaluate different products against each other that I am aware of. Personally I would say that prescribed NSAID medications, such as Meloxidyl, are of great benefit and are well proven. It is completely safe and very often done, to also give one of the supplements concurrently. (The NSAIDs themselves are not completely safe. They will occasionally have serious side effects, but that is rare and they are of significant benefit to many animals and people.) If you are going to give a supplement, personally I would suggest Yumove Chewable Tablets. It has the best range of well-regarded ingredients and good quality ingredients in my opinion. There are plenty of rival products with similar ingredients though (about 40 listed on our website alone).

wendy potts

i us this for my old dogs i ask the vet for a perscription so i could buy it on line he would not said it would not be the real mediction so how do you get one if your vet will not supply you with one ?

  • VioVet Staff

If you are within the UK, your vet is legally obliged to provide a prescription for you if you request it. There is no limit to how much the vet can charge to give you the prescription, so that can be a problem, but if you insist, they will have to write it out. (Check how much they are going to charge first though!)

If you are outside the UK then email with your location and we will see if we can help.
