Loxicom is supplied as a liquid to add to food, as tablets or as an injection. It contains the well known and trusted veterinary drug meloxicam. This is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which is used to provide relief from the stiffness and discomfort associated with osteoarthritis in the dog and cat. It is also used for other painful, inflammatory conditions, especially of the musculo-skeletal system, such as injuries. It can be given for a short course in acute conditions, or can be given for long periods of time in chronic conditions.

Alleviation of inflammation and pain in both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders in dogs Do not use in pregnant or lactating animals.
Initial treatment is a single dose of 0.2mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight (i.e.1.33ml/10 kg bodyweight) on the first day. Treatment is to be continued once daily by oral administration (at 24 hour interval) at a maintenance dose of 0.1mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight (i.e. 0.667ml/10kg bodyweight).

For longer term treatment, once clinical response has been observed (after 4 days), the dose can be adjusted to the lowest effective individual dose reflecting that the degree of pain and inflammation associated with chronic musculo-skeletal disorders may vary over time.

Particular care should be taken with regard to the accuracy of dosing. Please carefully follow the instructions of the veterinarian.

For oral use. To be administered with food or directly into the mouth. shake well before use.

The suspension can be given using either of the two measuring syringes provided in the package. The syringes fit onto the bottle and have a kg-bodyweight scale which corresponds to the maintenance dose (i.e. 0.1mg meloxicam/kg bodyweight). Thus for initiation of the therapy on the first day, twice the maintenance volume will be required.

A clinical response is normally seen within 3-4 days. Treatment should be discontinued after 10 days at the latest if no clinical improvement is apparent. Avoid introduction of contamination during use.
Each ml contains: Meloxicam 1.5mg/ml Sodium benzoate 1.5mg
Do not use in pregnant or lactating animals. Do not use in animals suffering from gastrointestinal disorders such as irritation and haemorrhage, impared hepatic, cardiac or renal function and haemorrhagic disorders. Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. Do not use in dogs less than 6 weeks of age. Typical adverse reactions of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea, faecal occult blood, apathy and renal failure have occasionally been reported. These adverse reactions occur generally within the first treatment week and are in most cases transient and disappear following termination of the treatment but in very rare cases may be serious or fatal. If adverse reactions occur, treatment shoud be discontinued and the advice of a veterinarian should be sought. Avoid use in any dehydrated, hypovolaemic or hypotensive animal, as there is a potential risk of renal toxicity. Other NSAIDs, diuretics, anticoagulants, aminoglycoside antibiotics and substances with high protein binding may compete for binding and thus lead to toxic effects. Loxicom must not be administered in conjunction with other NSAIDs or glucocorticosteroids. Pre-treatment with anti-inflammatory substances may result in additional or increased adverse effects and accordingly a treatment-free period with such veterinary medicinal products should be observed for at least 24 hours before commencement of treatment. The treatment-free period, however, should take into account the pharmacokinetic properties of the products used previously. In the case of overdose symptomatic treatment should be initiated.
