Authorised
This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.

Overview

Rheumocam is an anti-inflammatory medicine used in cattle, pigs, horses, dogs and cats.

Rheumocam contains the active substance meloxicam and is a generic medicine. This means that Rheumocam contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the European Union (EU) called Metacam.

Cattle
In cattle, Rheumocam is used together with appropriate antibiotic therapy, to reduce clinical signs of acute respiratory infection (infection of the lungs and airways). It can be used with oral re-hydration therapy (medicines given by mouth to restore water levels in the body) to reduce diarrhoea in calves of over one week of age and young, non-lactating cattle. It can be used as supportive therapy in the treatment of acute mastitis (inflammation of the udder), in combination with antibiotics.

Pigs
In pigs, Rheumocam is used to reduce lameness and inflammation in non-infectious locomotor disorders (diseases that affect the ability to move), for the relief of post-operative pain after minor soft tissue surgery such as castration, and for supportive therapy together with appropriate antibiotic therapy in the treatment of diseases that occur after farrowing (giving birth) such as puerperal septicaemia and toxaemia (mastitis-metritis-agalactia syndrome). Septicaemia and toxaemia are conditions where bacteria circulate in the blood and produce harmful substances (toxins).

Horses
In horses, Rheumocam is used to reduce pain associated with colic (abdominal pain) and to lessen inflammation and relieve pain in acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders (disorders affecting the muscles and bones).

Dogs
In dogs, Rheumocam is used to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation following orthopaedic (e.g. fracture operation) and soft tissue surgery. Moreover, it is used to lessen inflammation and pain in acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders.

Cats
In cats, Rheumocam is used to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation after ovariohysterectomy (spaying operation), orthopaedic and minor soft tissue surgery. Moreover, it is used to lessen pain and inflammation in acute and chronic musculo-skeletal disorders.
