METACAM DOSING

The Metacam dosing syringe is used to accurately control the dose of Metacam oral suspension you give your dog. You should always follow the dosage instructions given by your vet.

Metacam chewable tablets can be administered with or without food, are meat flavoured, and are taken by most dogs voluntarily.

HOW TO GIVE METACAM ORAL SUSPENSION

1

Before administering Metacam you should shake the bottle. Then remove the cap and attach the dosing syringe to the top of the bottle.

2

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 dog’s weight in kilograms.

3

Then turn the bottle the right way up and twist to separate the syringe from the bottle.

4

Push the plunger to empty the syringe onto your dog’s food. Alternatively, empty the syringe directly into their mouth.

5

One dosing syringe will be provided in the oral suspension packs which fits onto the bottle and has a kgbodyweight scale which corresponds to the maintenance dose. If you have a small dog weighing less than 10kg, a 010kg scale is present on the side of the standard Metacam dog dosing syringe.

6

For small dogs weighing less than 10kg, the dropper on the bottle itself can be used instead of the syringe.
