Metacam® Oral

Metacam® Oral. A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) for the treatment of pain and inflammation

Cats treated with Metacam® showed significant improvements in willingness to jump and height of jump.  These cats showed a significant reduction in pain when touched or patted.

Climbing, jumping, playing all become easier over time.  You should notice the difference within a matter of days.  But it's important to continue giving the medication as advised by your Veterinarian.

Always give Metacam® with food and a ready supply of water.  If you notice any of the following signs, discontinue treatment and speak to your Veterinarian immediately:

  • Poor or reduced appetite

  • Refusal to drink water

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhoea

  • Weakness, lethargy


Remember, arthritis doesn't disappear when the signs do.  It's a lifelong condition.  So it's important that you continue with your pet's treatment, even when they seem better.  If you stop too soon the pain and stiffness will come back.

It is important that your Veterinarian receives feedback about the progress of the treatment they have recommended, to give the best possible chance for your pet to lead a pain free life.
