Description

Meloxidyl 0.5 mg/ml oral suspension for cats 15ml.

Uses
Meloxidyl® 0.5 mg/ml oral suspension for cats is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for use in cats for:
- the alleviation of inflammation and pain in chronic musculo-skeletal disorders in cats
- the alleviation of mild to moderate post-operative pain and inflammation following surgical procedures, e.g. orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery.

Dosage and administration
Post-operative pain and inflammation following surgical procedures:
After initial treatment with meloxicam 2 mg/ml solution for injection for cats, continue treatment 24 hours later with Meloxidyl 0.5 mg/ml oral suspension for cats at a dosage of 0.05 mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight. The oral follow-up dose may be administered once daily (at 24 hour intervals) for up to four days.

Chronic musculo-skeletal disorders:
Initial treatment is a single oral dose of 0.1 mg meloxicam/kg body weight on the first day.

Treatment is to be continued once daily by oral administration (at 24-hour intervals) at a maintenance dose of 0.05 mg meloxicam/kg body weight.

Particular care should be taken with regard to the accuracy of dosing. The recommended dose should not be exceeded.

Shake well before use. To be administered orally either mixed with food or directly into the mouth.

The suspension can be given using the measuring syringe provided in the package.

The syringe fits onto the bottle and has a kg-body weight scale (from 1 kg to 10 kg) which corresponds to the maintenance dose. Thus for initiation of the therapy on the first day, twice the maintenance volume will be required.

A clinical response is normally seen within 7 days. Treatment should be discontinued after 14 days at the latest if no clinical improvement is apparent.

Avoid introduction of contamination during use.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not use in pregnant or lactating animals.

Do not use in cats suffering from gastrointestinal disorders such as irritation and haemorrhage, impaired hepatic, cardiac or renal function and haemorrhagic disorders.

Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.

Do not use in cats less than 6 weeks of age.
Special precautions for use in animals

If adverse reactions occur, treatment should be discontinued and the advice of a veterinarian should be sought. Avoid use in any dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive animal, as there is a potential risk of renal toxicity.

Post-operative pain and inflammation following surgical procedures: In case additional pain relief is required, multimodal pain therapy should be considered.

Chronic musculoskeletal disorders: Response to long-term therapy should be monitored at regular intervals by a veterinary surgeon.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

People with known hypersensitivity to NSAIDs should avoid contact with the veterinary medicinal product.

In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
Adverse reactions

Typical adverse reactions of NSAIDs such as loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea, faecal occult blood, apathy and renal failure have occasionally been reported. These side effects are in most cases transient and disappear following termination of the treatment but in very rare cases may be serious or fatal.

Interactions
Other NSAIDs, diuretics, anticoagulants, aminoglycoside antibiotics and substances with high protein binding may compete for binding and thus lead to toxic effects. Meloxidyl must not be administered in conjunction with other NSAIDs or glucocorticosteroids. Concurrent administration of potential nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided.
Pre-treatment with anti-inflammatory substances may result in additional or increased adverse effects and accordingly a treatment-free period with such drugs should be observed for at least 24 hours before commencement of treatment. The treatment-free period, however, should take into account the pharmacological properties of the products used previously.

Overdose
Meloxicam has a narrow therapeutic safety margin in cats and clinical signs of overdose may be seen at relatively small overdose levels. In case of overdose, adverse reactions are expected to be more severe and more frequent. In the case of overdose symptomatic treatment should be initiated.

Pharmaceutical precautions
This veterinary medicinal product does not require any special storage conditions.
Use within 6 months once opened.
Any unused product or waste materials should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
