What special precautions are there?
Pregnant animals, nursing dogs, breeding dogs, and pups under the age of six months have no verified safety testing. Never give to a dog that has a bleeding condition. Cyclooxygenase inhibitors can cause gastrointestinal, renal, and liver damage. The amount of sensitivity will vary depending on the patient. Canines having a history of NSAID response may have side effects. Renal toxicity risks are increased if the animal is dehydrated, on diuretics, or has pre-existing renal, cardiovascular, or hepatic impairment. Nephrotoxic drugs should be used with extreme caution. Anti-prostaglandins may exacerbate serious illnesses in dogs. Prostaglandins may be affected. This product has the potential to induce ulcers and/or perforations in the gastrointestinal tract. Use with caution if your pet is taking any other anti-inflammatory medications. In addition to OstiLox, use a non-NSAID or non-corticosteroid for pain relief. Do not administer with other NSAIDs. Use adequate washout periods while changing drugs. Protein-bound pharmaceuticals include cardiac, anticonvulsant, and behavioral treatments. There have been no investigations on the ingestion of protein-bound medicines. Ostilox absorption may be hampered by other drugs. If the animal need more treatment, keep a careful eye on it. If human consumption happens, seek medical attention right away. Humans should not take this drug. For oral use only. Before and during treatment, get your pet examined by a veterinarian. Test for blood hematological and biochemical baseline information during and before treatment. Fill out the OstiLox sheet using the information you`ve been given. Following administration, keep an eye on the animal for signs of toxicity. Avoid providing Meloxicam to a dog that has been diagnosed with Meloxicam hypersensitivity. Do not give to cats. In cats, meloxicam can cause death or renal failure. Keep out of the reach of animals and children.

Helpful Tips:
The tablets do not require splitting, and the product can be administered with food.
When ready to use, begin with the smallest effective dose for the shortest period feasible. For the first day of usage, the standard dose is.09 milligrams per pound. After that, give.045 mg per pound once a day. Please keep in mind that each syringe is set to provide the.045 maintenance dosage. Use two syringes for the first day`s dosing. To administer, use the syringe that corresponds to the dog`s size. Small syringes are for animals weighing less than 30 pounds, whereas big syringes are for animals weighing more than 30 pounds but less than 160 pounds. Never use a big syringe on a tiny dog, and never use anything other than the specified syringe for delivery. After determining the syringe size, shake it before removing the cap, and then reinstall it securely after administration. Then, either straight into the mouth or mixed with food, administer. Always keep an eye out for inadvertent overdose and accurate dosage. The little syringe is sized to fit inside the container and has 1 pound dosage markings that provide.045 mg per pound. The larger syringe is designed to fit inside the bottle and has 5 pound dosage markings that provide.045 mg per pound. Round down the animal`s weight to the closest lb when using the small syringe, and to the nearest 5 lb when using the big syringe. Always follow a veterinarian`s instructions while using this medicine. Use the animal`s medical history record to thoroughly evaluate potential risks and advantages before giving.
