Rabbit Metacam (Meloxicam) Calculator for milliliter (mL) dosage [Updated on: 06/3/17 05:09]

        Any reference to a dose (mL or cc) based on weight (kg) will not apply to any specific rabbit! The same rabbit that is recovering from a spay, neuter, broken leg, or dental would need a different dose depending on the condition & rabbit. The calculator will only show the dosing based on the data inputted. The results will have nothing to do with the correct dose for your rabbit's particular condition. This must be done by a rabbit savvy vet!!

1cc or cc³ (cubic centimeter) = 1mL or mL (milliliter) = 1 mls
SID = once a day | BID = twice a day
"≈" = "almost equal to"

        Based on the numbers entered, your rabbit of 1 kg (2.2 lbs) is taking a total of 0.67 mL (0.67 cc) of Metacam a day. You are using the oral suspension with a concentration of 1.5 mg/mL, therefore your rabbit is getting a dosage of 1 mg of medicine per 1 kg of body weight (1 mg/kg).

Math for a 1 kg or 2.2 lb rabbit:
[1 mg/kg × 1 kg ÷ 1.5 mg/mL ≈ 0.67 mL]

1 mg/kg × 1 kg = 1 mg
1 mg ÷ 1.5 mg/mL = 0.66666666666667 mL ≈ 0.67 mL (0.67cc)


0.667mL × 0.20288 US = 0.13525609080733 US tsp ≈ 0.14US teaspoon(s)
0.667mL × 0.28156 UK = 0.18770666666667 UK tsp ≈ 0.19UK teaspoon(s)
0.667mL × 0.20000 Metric = 0.13333333333333 Metric tsp ≈ 0.13Metric teaspoon(s)

1 mg ÷ 2.20462262 lbs = 0.45359237038038 mg/lb ≈ 0.45 mg/lb
