My vet gave my dog the Metacam for arthritis, I did some research and I found an alarming web site about this medication, can I have your opinion or can you suggest other alternatives? My dog is 11 years old and she was full of energy until one day she couldn't elevate her back legs, she was put on steroidal medication for 10 days but after the medication effect was gone, she start again not being able to get up. Our vet prescribed Metacam after some blood work to check the leaver function and then gave the ok to use this medication. She is only on her second day of Metacam. Can you please give me your opinion?
As far as I know Metacam has been used in Cananda for years and I have not heard any bad things about it. I have not seen any serious problems related to it's use. vetcare
