Meloxidyl 1.5mg/ml oral suspension for dogs is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID).
Meloxidyl is available as either a 10ml, 32ml or 100ml bottle and can only be supplied with a written prescription from your vets.
Most commonly, Meloxidyl 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.
Meloxidyl is 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.
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.
Ideally, Meloxidyl should be used alongside a Joint Supplement that contains glucosamine to further help support the joints and the cartilage. All of our Joint Supplements can be found in the Joint Supplement section of our website.
Meloxidyl is also available for Cats.
