When providing expert advice to your clients, you need to ensure that you’re offering their animal the best treatment available for pain management. Treatment of pain can be challenging as signs can differ between individual animals, even animals within the same species. It’s important that the behavioural changes are monitored by your clients so that you can tailor the best possible pain-management program for their animal. 

Due to induced hypersensitisation and neuroplasticity, pain is more difficult to control once it occurs, so prevention is key. Administration of ILIUM MELOXICAM before surgery, i.e. at the time of premedication, maximises and extends its efficiency, reduces the overall analgesic requirement, eases patient handling and reduces post-surgical morbidity. 

ILIUM MELOXICAM has a large product range across registered species in Australia with multiple delivery methods making it a market innovator for NSAIDs in Australia. ILIUM MELOXICAM is available as an injection and oral suspension for dogs and cats, an oral suspension for horses and foals, an injection for cattle sheep, pigs and horses, and a solution for oral trans-mucosal (OTM) absorption for sheep and cattle. ILIUM MELOXCAM is proven to alleviate both acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders and to reduce post-operative pain and inflammation. 

For lambs and calves, the patented and unique ILIUM BUCCALGESIC OTM (Oral Trans-Mucosal) is an easy-dose option for the alleviation of pain associated with routine husbandry procedures including mulesing, castration, tail docking, and surgical procedures. The routine husbandry procedures performed on livestock are necessary, not just for ease of handling and the convenience of the veterinarian and farmer, but importantly for the productivity and long-term welfare of the animal. 

The use of ILIUM BUCCALGESIC OTM has been shown to increase productivity and aids in animal recovery.
