Meloxidyl 0.5mg/ml oral suspension for cats is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID), which is used to help manage arthritis in cats 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.
Meloxidyl suspension for cats is also used in a number of other diseases and illnesses to alleviate inflammation and reduce any pain that your cat is suffering from. It is often used as a post-operative pain relief to help reduce any pain and discomfort.
Meloxidyl is a pale-yellow suspension which contains the active ingredient Meloxicam in the form of a tasty liquid, avoiding the need to give tablets.
Meloxidyl suspension is easy to give and should be administered with food (unless otherwise advised by your veterinary surgeon).
Ideally, Meloxidyl suspension for cats 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: Seraquin, Arthri Aid Omega Liquid, Cosequin and Logic EaseFlex Cat.
Meloxidyl is also available for dogs.
