Rated 5 out of 5 Saved our dog!
Roxie was born with hip problems and only got worse. At 2 years old she was so stiff in her hips and hind legs that getting up and trying to walk was agony. We seriously considered putting her down. She had gotten especially bad and at another trip to the vet we were told that she had a broken pelvis. The doctor put her on Metacam and within a week she was like her old self. We were told that she would have to be on Metacam for the rest of her life as a maintenance dose. She has never shown any adverse effects from the drug. She will still show some signs of stiffness when she has lain to long but once she is up and moving she is fine. Metacam is a wonderful drug and I have recommended it to other dog people with the same issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 12 year old Doberman does well
We tried many other types of anti-inflammatories but they were very hard on her stomach.....Metacam is the best medicine of this type because of the liquid form it gets out of their stomach and into their system very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 A Miracle
Mary -My 11 pug was really loosing the use of her back legs. After two doses of this medicine she had improved to a point that she was like a puppy again! I would pay whatever it took to see this turn about but this is quite a savings. I would highly recommend this medication to anyone whose pet is older or in pain.Portland, OR

Rated 5 out of 5 I can Play again
I am a 11 year male lab that loves to play ball, tug of war ( I would win a lot)
and go swimming. But my old bones started to hurt so Dr. Tom put me on Metacam. I feel like a puppy again, I chase the ball I go swimming, I can even chase the ladies, sometimes! If my owner could get past the smell I think he would try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 Help for sore doggies!
My vet has prescribed this and it works like a miracle! I give it to my 70 lb. mixed breed male and he acts like a puppy again. When I have run out of it, he is very sad and not active at all. It is worth the cost and wish my husband could take it for his knees!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 Great for one, not so well for other dog
We have 2 goldens with dysplasia (mild and moderate). The female with the mild dysplasia is responding wonderfully. However, the male with moderate dysplasia is reacting to the medication and no improvement has been seen. I'm hoping the vet can locate something that he won't react to and that works.

Our animal rescue facility has had GREAT success from Metacam.
From sore legs to general muscular concerns, this product has saved many of our less fortunate pigs who have musculoskeletal problems. Our pigs thank you and recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 very helpful judged by lack of vocalization of pain in movement
Needs to be disguised in the food. Once accepted, works wonders.

Rated 5 out of 5 Works wonderfully without the use of steroids
This is a wonderful medication without the
side effects of steroids. Our dachshund has
a thoracic disc disease, and this medication allows him to be pain free and
able to be agile in his movements.

Rated 5 out of 5 Helps so much!
I have a 15 year old Peke-a-Poo. She was getting so stiff that she could hardly get up in the evening. After starting this med, she is running around like a puppy. It's pricey, so we tried a half dose nightly, and it still works great while the bottle lasts twice as long.

Rated 5 out of 5 Saved my boxer's life!!!
I have an elderly boxer who woke up one day completely body locked, couldn't lift his head or hardly walk. The vet determined he did not have a stroke and gave us medacam to see how he does. In 3 days he went from what we thought was a put-to-sleep situation to bouncing around the house like he was 4 (he's almost 14 now). That was 3 years ago. He had a similar incident recently where he has a soft tissue mass under his front leg (armpit) that is non-operable and was pressing on a nerve bundle making his legs spasm and he couldn't walk. Again, if we couldn't stop the spasms he was going to have to be put down if he couldn't walk again - this is day 3 and he's bouncing around like he's 8 :-) Boxers' life span is 10 - Butterbean is almost 14. I call Metacam the wonder drug.

Rated 5 out of 5 Relieves back pain in dachshund
My 14-year-old dachshund, Tibi, received back surgery 8 years ago, but consequently developed arthritis in his older years. My vet recommended he go on Metacam, and I was absolutely amazed to see Tibi regain the spring in his step and energy he had as a young dog after only a few days of being on Metacam. This is certainly a wonder drug for my dog as it allows him to fully enjoy the last years of his life with great spunk and no obvious side effects.

Rated 4 out of 5 I have a puppy with hip dysplasia
I have a 8/9 month old puppy with hip dyspasia. We have to wait until she is older for her to have surgery, and Metacam seems to bring her some relief in the evenings after being a "puppy" all day. The only side effect has been it makes her sleepy.

Rated 5 out of 5 I thought my cat was a goner.
My cat is 15 years old and was having trouble standing and walking, and when she got up, she was very wobbly. I thought her time had come but the vet said to try Metacam. She is like a new cat. At 15, she's not the spry thing she used to be but she's walking much better and in fact I saw her trot the other day!

Rated 5 out of 5 arthritis in the knee
Metacam is a wonderful drug for pain. My shepherd has arthritis in her knee and she was not able to put any pressure on her hind leg. Within 12 hours after giving her the first does she was able to use her leg. She is now on Metacam every other day and she does not even limp at all. The price of the medicine is high but it's a small price to pay just to see my dog not in any pain. I highly recommend Metacam.

Rated 3 out of 5 Anti-Inflamitory
It helped my dog, but was only able to take it for about 6 months when it started to affect his liver, and had to change to something that wouldn't harm his liver.

Rated 5 out of 5 METACAM-MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE
MY DOG JACK, WHO WE FOUND ON A DESITLATE COUNTY ROAD IN 1997,WHO WE THINK IS AROUND 9 OR TEN YEARS OLD NOW, FROM ONE DAY TO ANOTHER JUST STOPPED,EATING,WALKING ,JUMPING,OR HAVING BOWEL MOVEMNETS. JACK STARTED DRAGING HIS HIND LEGS ,WHEN HE TRIED TO WALK. IT SEEMED TO ME HE WAS GETTING PARALIZED FROM HIS HIND QUARTERS. WE TOOK HIM TO THE VET AND AFTER SOME X-RAYS AND AN EXAMINATION. WE WERE TOLD THAT JACK HAD A DEGENRATE SPINE DEISASE AND HE HAD SOME INFLAMATION AND LARGE GAPS ON HIS SPINE, AND SOME SMALL CRACKS. THE DOCTOR SAID THAT HE WOULD NEED SURGERY.(BY THE WAY SURGERY WAS OUT OF THE QUESTION...$$3,000, THAT I DIDN'T HAVE ) WELL HE GAVE US SOME MEDS TO HELP JACK WITH THE PAIN AND HELP HIM HAVE HIS BOWEL MOVEMENTS FOR THE TIME BEING.WHICH I MIGHT ADD DIDN'T HELP MUCH. AFTER THE MEDS WERE DONE AND JACK WASN'T MUCH BETTER, WE WENT BACK AND THE VET SUGGESTED METACAM 10ML. THIS WAS KIND OF OUR LAST HOPE, BECAUSE WE WERE THINKING OF PUTTING HIM DOWN SO HE WOULDN'T SUFFER ANYMORE SINCE WE COULD NOT AFFORD THE SURGERY. I GAVE JACK THE METACAM AND ON THE THIRD DAY JACK WAS BACK TO HIS OLD SELF. HE IS DOING FINE NOW. HE IS STILL ON THE METACAM BUT WE GIVE IT TO HIM EVERY OTHER DAY INSTEAD OF EVERYDAY. I WILL CHECK WITH THE VET AND SEE IF MAYBE HE CAN GO EVERY THREE DAYS,.I PAY ABOUT 20.00 AT THE VET SO I DO SAVE A LITTLE IF I BUY IT HERE. METACAM IS A MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE.*This is a prescription item

Rated 5 out of 5 Old dog learns new tricks
Metacam is a wonder drug for my old dog that is 19 years old. He has arthritis in most of his joints but is still happy and healthy otherwise. Metacam allows him to enjoy a lot of things that the pain of age took away. The quality of what is left of his life has been improved greatly. The only disappointment to me is that it is more expensive to purchase through petcare rx than at my vet(only pay $67.00 at vet), but none the less it is a miracle drug without a doubt and Petcare rx is still a truly terrific way to purchase pet meds.*This is a prescription item

Rated 5 out of 5 SAMMY'S LIFE SAVER
MY 12yr old Shetland Sheep Dog "Sampson" had developed a stiff hindquarter that was progressively depriving him of his happy-go-luckly lifestyle ,running,playing ect. After 6 months time as the stiffness worsended the time came to consider putting him down. But alas, our vet suggested "METACAM". I thought that we would give it a try although my confidence and past experience with "SNAKE-OIL" treatments have been at least disapointing. To my surprise Sammy seemed to respond to this miracle drug and after three days the stiffness in his hips and legs was much improved. Now after 3 months his quality of life has returned allow him to move about and run,play,and romp with our other dogs. What can I say? thank you for this great product. I have recommended it to my dog owner friends and family. You definitly have a "WINNER" here.
