Do not follow the single, one-time dose of meloxicam with any other NSAID. Do not use IV in cats. When administering any NSAID, appropriate laboratory testing to establish hematological and serum biochemical baseline data is recommended prior to use in dogs and cats. All cats should undergo a thorough history and physical examination before administering meloxicam.
