What special precautions are there?

  • Acute renal failure or death have been attributed to meloxicam use in cats. Therefore, it is not considered safe for cats and and should not be administered to them.
  • Do not administer to dogs with known hypersensitivity to meloxicam.
  • Pet parents should carefully observe their pet during use for signs of drug toxicity. You should receive an information sheet with OstiLox.
  • Testing should occur to obtain serum biochemical and hematological baseline data before and during use.
  • Before starting on this or any other NSAID, dogs should always be thoroughly examined and a complete history should be discussed with your veterinarian.
  • For oral administration only.
  • Not safe for human use. Immediately seek medical attention if accidentally ingested by a human.
  • Patients requiring ancillary therapy should be monitored for drug compatibility.
  • The influence of accompanying medications that could inhibit the metabolism of OstiLox has not been tested.
  • Frequently-used protein-bound medications include behavioral, anticonvulsant, and cardiac drugs. The use of accompanying protein-bound drugs with OstiLox has not been studied.
  • Study the appropriate washout time when changing from one NSAID to another or from corticosteroid use.
  • It is not recommended to use OstiLox in conjunction with another type of NSAID.
  • Consider a non-corticosteroid or non-NSAID analgesic medication if your pet needs additional medication for pain after OstiLox administration.
  • Because NSAIDs have the potential to induce gastrointestinal perforations and/or ulcerations, concurrent use with other anti-inflammatories like corticosteroids or NSAIDs is not recommended.
  • NSAIDs can inhibit the prostaglandins responsible for maintaining normal homeostatic function. These anti-prostaglandin effects could cause significant disease in dogs with undiagnosed pre-existing or underlying diseases.
  • Concomitant administration of potentially nephrotoxic medications should be approached with caution.
  • Patients at the greatest risk for renal toxicity are those with pre-existing hepatic, cardiovascular, and/or renal dysfunction, on concurrent diuretic therapy, or dehydrated dogs.
  • Dogs who have a history of adverse reactions from NSAID use could experience side effects from the use of other NSAIDs like OstiLox.
  • Sensitivity to drug-related side effects may vary from patient to patient.
  • Cyclooxygenase inhibiting NSAIDs could cause hepatic, renal, and gastrointestinal toxicity.
  • Because safety has not been established in such patients, meloxicam should not be administered to dogs with bleeding disorders.
  • Safety has not been proven for the use of OstiLox in dogs under the age of 6 months or in breeding, lactating, or pregnant dogs.
  • Keep out of reach of animals and children.

What to do if overdose?

Overview

Use as directed by your Veterinarian


Dosage and Administration
Always provide client information sheet with prescription. Carefully consider the potential benefits and risk of OstiLox Oral Suspension and other treatment options before deciding to use OstiLox Oral Suspension. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual response. OstiLox Oral Suspension should be administered initially at 0.09 mg/lb (0.2 mg/kg) body weight only on the first day of treatment. For all treatments after day 1, OstiLox Oral Suspension should be administered once daily at a dose of 0.045 mg/lb (0.1 mg/kg). The syringes are calibrated to deliver the daily maintenance dose in lbs. Because the first dose (0.2 mg/kg) is two times the amount of the daily maintenance dose (0.1 mg/kg), two syringes containing the 0.1 mg/kg dose should be administered at the first dose.

Directions for Administration:

OstiLox Oral Suspension is packaged with 2 sizes of dosing syringes. The small syringe is calibrated in 1-lb increments for use in dogs under 30 lbs. The large syringe is calibrated in 5-lb increments (up to 160 lbs.) and should be used for dosing dogs that are 30 lbs and over. Only administer OstiLox with the provided syringes. The container should never be used as a dropper bottle for administration of OstiLox.

Dogs Under 30 Lbs (13.6 Kg)
Shake well before use, then remove cap. OstiLox Oral Suspension can be given either mixed with food or placed directly into the mouth. Particular care should be given with regard to the accuracy of dosing. To prevent accidental overdosing of small dogs, only use the small dosing syringe. The large syringe provided should not be used to measure doses for dogs weighing less than 30 lbs (13.6 kg). For dogs under 30 lbs, use the small dosing syringe provided in the package (see dosing procedure below). The small dosing syringe fits onto the bottle and has dosing marks in 1-lb increments, designed to deliver the daily maintenance dose of 0.045 mg/lb (0.1 mg/kg). For dogs between 1 - 29 lbs, OstiLox can be given using the marks on the small dosing syringe. When using the small dosing syringe, the dog’s weight should be rounded down to the nearest 1-lb increment. Replace and tighten cap after use.

Dogs 30 Lbs (13.6 Kg) And Over
Shake well before use, then remove cap. OstiLox may be either mixed with food or placed directly into the mouth. Particular care should be given with regard to the accuracy of dosing. To prevent accidental overdosing of small dogs, do not use the large syringe in animals weighing less than 30 pounds. For dogs 30 lbs or greater, the large dosing syringe provided in the package should be used (see dosing procedure below). The large dosing syringe fits onto the bottle and has dosing marks in 5-lb increments (up to 160 lbs), designed to deliver the daily maintenance dose of 0.045 mg/lb (0.1 mg/kg). When using the large syringe, the dog’s weight should be rounded down to the nearest 5-lb increment. Replace and tighten cap after use.
