So you will want to visit thoroughly with your veterinarian
before beginning a Metacam regimen for your specific dog.
Be sure and let your veterinarian know wether or not your pet may have any existing or suspected health problems,
as well as, all pet health products they may be taking, including all foods,
treats, non-prescription supplements and prescription medications.
Metacam is not actually considered a feline medication, however, veterinarians will
sometimes prescribe it for cats to treat arthritis pain. It was prescribed for one of our own cats and we had
success with it. Just the same, due to the danger to felines,
you may wish to discuss the pros and cons of metacam, including the potential dangers before deciding to use it for your own cat.
In general the majority of reviews on metacam were good with some pet owners having success with it for several
of their dogs and with some going so far as to use expressions
like "wow", "fabulous results", "amazing" and "a
dramatic success" to describe the effectiveness of the medication. There were just a few dog owners who
reported side effects or adverse reactions. However, there were some cat owners whose cats had some bad
experiences with the drug.
