Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizzaboo Excellent Pain Relief
Our 110 pound, 12 year old, black lab mix started taking this about 1 year ago, when we came home and he couldn't stand up on his own due to arthritis pain. I believe this medicine saved his life. In the past year he is back to daily walks, which has increased his hip and leg muscles. He's back to his younger health and muscle tone. We're at 70lb dose daily which seems to work. I squirt the liquid directly into his mouth before his evening meal. Couldn't be easier and he licks it right up. After reading some of the other comments I may try to reduce to every other day. This medicine is worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Medication for Arthritis Pain
Our second dog, Honey, took Metacam for years and it worked well for her arthritis. Our 16 year old dog Lotto has taken it for most of his life for arthritis pain; his dosage was increased a bit this years and it has worked for him, too. And it is easy to take as it is in liquid form and I just add the correct dosage to his dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 Miracle/deadly
My 7 1/2 year old male Maltese has vertebral disc disease and had a recent neck surgery. He also has torn Acls in both back knees(needs surgery) and was on this drug for a short period of time and completely bled out, no shock, blood pressure or anything(completely bled out). My awesome Vet saved him for a second time as he had a previous liver shunt surgery he did very well from. Be VERY VERY careful..do NOT fudge on the dosage. It was great until.....Riley is always in pain...

Rated 5 out of 5 Buford
Buford our Blue Heeler mix was abused as a puppy. We saw him thrown from a moving vehicle doing about 40 mph. He sustained front leg damage which resulted in joint pain after his first year. Even though he weighs now 61 lbs we only give him a 40lb dose 3 times a week and he is a happy dog! No more limping and whining from pain. We love our Bu Heeler and never want him to experience any pain so this is working wonders for him

Rated 5 out of 5 Metacam
My yorkie has a bad back and he was having a hard time getting around and I could tell he was in pain. The Vet gave him this med and he was almost like his old self. It costs alot but he needed this to help him not be in pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 METCAM
My dog has hip dysplasia and is a very large , mixed breed dog. She weighs over 100 lbs. She has developed sterile nodular panickulitis and has been very ill. I was giving her Deramaxx which really kept her pain under control. I can no longer get Deramaxx so my vet recommended Metacam. It is very expensive and I am having to cut back on the recommended dosage. I really dont think there is a comparison to Deramaxx and I wish they would release the deramaxx again. I do not like the oral suspension in the Metacam. I have not seen anything really good with this med.

Our little Sadie has suffered with pain of arthritis in her hips for 3 years now. One sign of the pain and I give her the Metacam. She is much better in a matter of hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 Miracle Metacam
Our male Rottie developed huge knots on every joint on his body including his cheekbones. When biopsied results came back benign inflammation that is not rare in older large breeds at pressure points. We started Moose on Metacam 1.5 yrs ago in hopes to extend his quality of life for another year. In one month every knot was gone, he's been with us 1.5 yrs and still doing great. We are very grateful for Metacam!
