Important OroCAM (meloxicam) Safety Information:
Repeated use of meloxicam in cats has been associated with acute renal failure and death. Do not administer meloxicam transmucosal oral spray to cats. See Contraindications for detailed information. Warnings, Precautions, and Contraindications: For oral use in dogs only. OroCAM should not be used in dogs with known hypersensitivity to meloxicam or other NSAIDs, dogs weighing less than 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg), or dogs younger than six months of age. It has not been evaluated for safety in breeding dogs, lactating dogs, or dogs with bleeding disorders.
Adverse Reactions: Common adverse reactions include vomiting, diarrhea, increased liver enzyme values, and loss of appetite. In clinical studies, the clinical signs were generally mild, transient (lasted 1–4 days during the 28-day study period), and resulted in complete recovery. There were no clinical signs related to the increased liver enzymes. Kidney or liver damage has been reported with other NSAIDs.
Other Recommendations: All dogs should undergo a thorough history and physical examination before the initiation of NSAID therapy. Appropriate laboratory testing to establish hematological and serum biochemical baseline data is recommended prior to and periodically during administration of any NSAID.
