Precautions

Caution: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. The safe use of Metacam Oral Suspension in dogs younger than 6 months of age, dogs used for breeding, or in pregnant or lactating dogs has not been evaluated. As a class, cyclo-oxygenase inhibitory NSAIDS may be associated with gastrointestinal and renal toxicity. Sensitivity to drug-associated adverse events varies with the individual patient. Since many NSAIDS possess the potential to produce gastrointestinal ulceration, concomitant use of Metacam Oral Suspension with other inflammatory drugs, such as NSAIDS or other corticosteroids, should be avoided or closely monitored.
