You should always follow your vet’s advice when it comes to how much Metacam to give your cat.
Metacam oral suspension can be added to food or given directly into your cat’s mouth, making it very easy to give. In fact, Metacam oral suspension for cats has been awarded International Cat Care’s Easy to Give Award.
The Metacam dosing syringe is used to accurately control the dose of Metacam you give your cat. You should always follow the dosage instructions given by your vet.
Before administering Metacam you should shake the bottle. Then remove the cap and attach the dosing syringe to the top of the bottle.
Once the syringe is attached to the bottle you can turn both the bottle and syringe upside down. Pull the plunger out until the black line is aligned with your cat’s weight in kilograms.
Then turn the bottle the right way up and twist to separate the syringe from the bottle.
Push the plunger to empty the syringe onto your cat’s food. Alternatively, empty the syringe directly into their mouth.
For small cats weighing less than 2 kg, the dropper on the bottle itself can be used. After shaking the bottle, simply turn it upside down, and without squeezing the bottle, allow the appropriate number of drops to fall onto your cat’s food.
