Details

Metacam oral suspension for horses is a Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug (NSAID), which is used to help manage arthritis in horses as well as acting as a pain relief for those who suffer from chronic (long-term) or acute (short-term) musculo-skeletal disorders such as sprained muscles. Metacam suspension for horses is also used in a number of other diseases and illnesses to alleviate inflammation and reduce any pain that your horse is suffering from. It is often used as a post-operative pain relief to help reduce any pain and discomfort.

Metacam is a yellowish oral suspension which contains the active ingredient Meloxicam in the form of a tasty liquid, avoiding the need to give tablets. Metacam suspension is easy to give and should be administered directly into the horse’s mouth or with a small amount food before a main meal (unless otherwise advised by your veterinary surgeon). A syringe is provided to dose your horse in kilograms according to its bodyweight. Metacam is usually given once daily and an improvement is normally seen within the first 3-4 days of starting treatment.

Ideally, Metacam suspension for horses should be used alongside a Joint Supplement that contains glucosamine to further help support the joints and the cartilage. We have a wide range of Joint Supplements available, some of these include: Newmarket Joint Supplement, Cosequin Equine, YuMove Active Joint and Buteless.

All of our Joint Supplements can be found in the Joint Supplement section of our website.

Metacam is available in the following forms; oral suspension for dogs, 1mg chewable tablets, 2.5mg chewable tablets, an injectable solution for pigs, cattle and horses and a suspension for cats experiencing pain and inflammation.

Do not use Metacam for horses in pregnant or lactating mares, horses less than 6 weeks old, or horses suffering from gastrointestinal disorders such as irritation and haemorrhage, impaired kidney, heart or liver function.
