How long does it take Metacam (meloxicam) to work?
Wolfy, my arthritic Husky-Shepherd was recently switched from Previcox to the generic form of Metacam (meloxicam). Before starting the meloxicam he was given a cortisone shot and we stopped the Previcox for 12 days to get the Previcox out of his system. Today was his first day on meloxicam.
It was bad day insofar as his hips go. I remember it took a few days for the Previcox to take effect; is this true of meloxicam, too? Wolfy is also on Tramadol for pain, but I hope the meloxicam kicks in sooner rather than later. About how long will this take?
