Side Effects

The most common side effect is stomach upset.  Serious adverse reactions can occur with NSAIDs in dogs.  The most common side effects involve the stomach, liver, and/or kidneys.  Notify your veterinarian immediately if these side effects are observed: vomiting, change in appetite, diarrhea, dark or bloody stools, change in behavior, increased urination or drinking of water, lethargic behavior.

Other side effects may occur. Follow up routinely with your veterinarian while your pet is on this medication.

Usage

Meloxidyl should be given orally as directed by your veterinarian. Try to give this medication at about the same time each day (preferably after or with a meal). Only administer Meloxidyl with the provided syringes. The container should never be used as a dropper bottle for administration of Meloxidyl. Shake well. Measure liquid medication using the syringe provided with product. To prevent accidental overdosing of small dogs, only use the small dosing syringe.  Note: syringes are calibrated by weight.

Cautions

The safety of Meloxidyl in dogs less than 6 months of age and in pregnant, breeding, or nursing dogs has not been evaluated. Dogs with known hypersensitivity to meloxicam should not receive Meloxidyl. Do not use Meloxidyl in cats. Acute renal failure and death have been associated with the use of meloxicam in cats. Use with extreme caution and continued monitoring in geriatric animals and those with dehydration, diabetes mellitus, or stomach, intestinal, liver, heart, and blood disorders.

Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication you are giving to your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, even if a drug interaction may occur. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. The following drugs can potentially interact with meloxicam: oral anticoagulants, heparin, other anti-inflammatory agents, salicylates, corticosteroids, and ACE inhibitors. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together. Store this medicine in a cool, dry place at room temperature. Store away from heat and direct sunlight. Do not store this medicine in the bathroom, near the kitchen sink or in damp places. The medicine may break down if exposed to heat or moisture.

Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform Vetsource and your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to: swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.
