Indications
Maxicam Plus (Pills 2.0 mg) is a combination of non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug with selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 (cox-2) - Meloxicam, with a chondroprotector with repairing activity of bone and cartilage tissue - chondroitin sulfate A. Selective blocking of cox-2 promoted by Meloxicam gives anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-exudative properties with minimum gastrolesive or ulcerogenic effects. In addition to these effects, meloxicam also inhibits infiltration of leukocytes in the inflamed tissue and prevents bone and cartilage destruction that occurs in bone and cartilage degenerative processes. Chondroitin Sulfate A is an important natural component of joint cartilage, responsible for maintaining the physiological and functional integrity of cartilage tissue and synovial fluid, restoring joint mobility. Another important function of Chondroitin Sulfate A is neutralization of enzymes that are produced by the lesioned cartilage and that increase degeneration of the cartilage tissue. It promotes repair of the cartilage and bone tissue thanks to its capacity to stimulate biosynthesis of proteoglycans and collagen. It contributes toward relief of pain, reduction of inflammation and regeneration of joint tissue, accelerating the cure process. Maxicam Plus (Pills 2.0 mg) is indicated as analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-exudative drug and joint regenerator for medium and large-size dogs, being specially indicated in painful or degenerative pathologies, acute or chronic, of the osteomyoarticular system, such as: osteitis, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, spondylosis, ankylosing spondyloarthrosis, coxofemoral dysplasias, calcification of the intervertebral discs, repair of fractures, traumatisms and post-surgery of arthroplasties. Treatment duration must be stipulated according to severity of the state. In acute cases, treatment is recommended for 5 to 7 days. In chronic states, prolonged treatments may be required for a maximum period of 28 days, or at prescription of the veterinary doctor. We recommend continuing treatment with Chondroitin Sulfate at prescription of the Veterinary Doctor.
