Metacam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which is a type of painkiller used for the treatment of pain in dogs, cats and guinea pigs.
Metacam is one of the most popular medicines used by vets in the UK to treat arthritis in dogs and cats1. Therefore, it plays a vital role in improving the quality and enjoyment of life for pets with arthritis.
Metacam is licensed for use in dogs, cats and guinea pigs. For dogs it is available as both an easy to give oral liquid as well as chewable tablets. As most cats and guinea pigs do not readily take tablets, it is available in just the easy to administer liquid formulation.
