Two entries for meloxicam:
Meloxicam 0.1-0.3 mg/kg PO, SC q24h is listed just for guinea pigs
Meloxicam = or less than 0.5 mg/kg PO, SC q24h for Chinchillas, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils

Bookfan, Is there any way to find out from your vet how large a dose of diazepam should be used? I'm thinking that if it's not something that originally was made to give to guinea pigs, there might not be any standard information regarding this. I'm not sure though.
