Raamsdonksveer 24-08-2023 – Dopharma is extending its NSAID range with Melovem® 15 mg/ml. This oral suspension is exclusively authorized for use in horses and a welcome addition to Dopharma’s well-known Melovem® 20 mg/ml injectable (I.V.) for the treatment of horses.

Fast pain relief thanks to self-administration by the horse owner

Just like Melovem® 20 mg/ml, meloxicam is the active component of Melovem® 15 mg/ml. The significant difference and advantage is that horse owners can administer Melovem® 15 mg/ml, either via the horse’s feed or directly into its mouth. Please note that this veterinary medicine requires a prescription.

You can use Melovem® 15 mg/ml for alleviation of inflammation and relief of pain in both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders in horses.

If the symptoms are severe, the veterinarian may initially administer Melovem® 20 mg/ml intravenously. If further treatment is necessary, it can be continued with Melovem® 15 mg/ml oral suspension.

Unique packaging for maximum benefit of Melovem® 15 mg/ml

Melovem® 15 mg/ml oral suspension for horses comes in a unique packaging [appendix 1: photo packaging]. The shape of the bottle allows for easy shaking of the suspension.
