Meloxicam Is A Non

Meloxicam is an NSAID or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It is a selective COX-2 inhibitor. This means it does not affect COX -1. Most dogs tolerate the drug well. It helps reduce their pain and inflammation. Meloxicam can be administered to dogs as a once-daily dose of 0. 1 mg/kg (0. 1 %). The initial dose may be doubled at the Vet's discretion. The solution can be put directly into the dog's mouth or added to food. The potential side effects of meloxicam are essentially the same as the effects of other NSAIDs. If side effects occur in your dog while giving meloxicamm, stop the medication and contact your veterinarian right away. If you notice profuse bleeding, extreme lethargy, or diarrhea, immediately bring your dog to a veterinary clinic. Some NSAIDs should not be taken at the same time as meloxicams. Other NSAIDs (such as aspirin, carprofen, meloxam, deracoxib, and others) should be stopped before starting melodicam. Using multiple NSAIDs at the exact same time increases the risks of side effects. . . .
