IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: METACAM: Repeated use of meloxicam in cats has been associated with acute renal failure and death. Do not administer a second dose of meloxicam. Do not follow meloxicam dose with any other NSAID. As a class, cyclo-oygenase inhibitory NSAIDs may be associated with gastrointestinal, kidney, or liver side effects. The most common side effects reported in field studies were vomiting and soft stool/diarrhea. These are usually mild, but may be serious. Pets should be evaluated for pre-existing conditions and currently prescribed medications prior to treatment with METACAM, then monitored regularly while on treatment. Concurrent use with another NSAID, corticosteroid, or nephrotoxic medication should be avoided. Click here to view the package insert for complete product information.
