What is Meloxidyl?

Meloxidyl is a prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is used to control pain and inflammation (soreness) due to osteoarthritis in dogs. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a painful condition caused by “wear and tear” of cartilage and other parts of the joints that may result in the following changes or signs in your dog: Limping or lameness, decreased activity or exercise (reluctance to stand, climb stairs, jump or run, or difficulty in performing these activities) stiffness or decreased movement of joints. Meloxidyl is given to dogs by mouth. Do not use Meloxidyl Oral Suspension in cats. Acute renal failure and death have been associated with the use of meloxicam in cats.

What Kind of results Can I expect When My Dog is on Meloxidyl for OA?

While Meloxidyl is not a cure for osteoarthritis, it can control pain and inflammation associated with OA and improve your dog’s mobility.  Response varies from dog to dog but can be quite dramatic.  In most dogs, improvement can be seen in a matter of days.  If Meloxidyl is discontinued or not given as directed, your dog’s pain and inflammation may come back.

What Dogs Should not Take Meloxidyl?

Your dog should not be given Meloxidyl if he/she:

 Has had an allergic reaction to meloxicam, the active ingredient of Meloxidyl.

 Has had an allergic reaction (such as hives, facial swelling, or red or itchy skin) to aspirin or other NSAIDs.

 Is presently taking aspirin, other NSAIDs, or corticosteroids (unless directed by your veterinarian). 

Can Meloxidyl Be Given With Other Medicines?

Meloxidyl should not be given with other NSAIDs (for example aspirin, carprofen, etodolac, deracoxib) or steroids (for example, cortisone, prednisone, dexamethasone, triamcinolone). Tell your veterinarian about all medicines you have given your dog in the past, and any medicines that you are planning to give with Meloxidyl. This should include other medicines that you can get without a prescription. Your veterinarian may want to check that all of your dog’s medicines can be given together
