Loxicom 2.5mg chewable tablets for dogs is a Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug (NSAID), which is used to help manage arthritis in dogs 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. Loxicom 2.5mg chewable tablets are also used in a number of other diseases and illnesses to alleviate inflammation and reduce any pain that your dog is suffering from. It is often used as a post-operative pain relief to help reduce any pain and discomfort.
Each Loxicom 2.5mg tablet contains 2.5mg of the active ingredient Meloxicam. Loxicom tablets are easy to give and should be administered with food (unless otherwise advised by your veterinary surgeon). Loxicom 2.5mg tablets are flavoured so your dog may take the tablet willingly without having to hide it in their food. The tablets are easily divisible to enable precision dosing calculated by bodyweight. Loxicom is usually given once daily and an improvement is normally seen in the dog 3-4 days after starting treatment.
