I wanted to avoid putting my senior pit bull named Harley on a prescription pain medication because I was worried about the side affects. However there came a point when she became uncomfortable and so I knew I had to do it. I'm so glad I did. She's been on Metacam for almost a year, and she is so much happier for it. She is comfortable even with the host of physical ailments she has, and I'm relieved to know her quality of life continues.
We have a 12 yr old husky. Max has been experiencing rear hip pain for years. Our vet suggested this product, however it was quite pricey but well worth it for the comfort of our beloved pet. It works well and is easy to give. Max now appears to have much less pain and VetDepot has it for less. And they are very easy to deal with and great communication. They did all the work of arranging the rx with our vet. Thanks!
Good anti-inflammatory analgesic
My dogs respond well to this med for pain after knee surgery and arthritic owing pain . I recommend it. Great price here.
Helps to relieve our 15 year old lab mix's hip pain noticeably - it's like she's five years younger!
Good product, very responsive company
When we ran out of Metacam, we immediately noticed that Tige was moving around less, and yelping more. If we had any doubts as to whether or not the medication was doing any good before, those doubts were now gone.
Getting our vet to renew the prescription ran into some bumps in the road, but VetDepot was constantly in contact with me by phone keeping me up to date on the process, so I could get involved and get it completed. The previous website we used did not ship the product because they ran out, and it was only after three weeks when I called that I found out there was a problem.
Vet Depot will definitely be my first stop going forward.
My Schnauzer is walking again
My almost 11 yr mini Schnauzer went into horrible pain for a week and a half. Vet couldn't figure out what was wrong even with some tests. Then knuckled on 9/9/12 rushed to an ER clinic and they diagnosed him with pressure on spine. He couldn't even stand up there. Pred 18 days, caged for a month and a lot of other stuff to get him to this point. Searched and searched for alternative solutions found a vet that does cold laser and acupuncture - put on gabapentin but still needed this for the inflammation - what a rough couple months this poor dog has been through. He's doing so much better and even playing some with his brothers. I do give him Milk Thistle per an integrated vet to minimize the effect on the liver. He has come a long way.
Great company, Great Product for my dog after ACL surgery, couldn't be happier
I'm very happy with VetDepot. They return my calls, kept me updated on the process of getting a prescription from my Vet and even contacted my Vet to get the whole process completed and get the item shipped. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.
My dog is a German Shepard mix, had an ACL surgery and then a Meniscus surgery on the same leg, so she will be on Metacam forever. However we do not give her the full dosage and she is doing great. Vet Depot will be the new place where I will be getting this and other prescription meds.
Wish I knew about VetDepot years ago, but glad I do now.
Thank you again.
This med works very well with bigger dogs. So glad my vet told me about this.
7 year old German Shepherd
I have a 7 yr old GSD. She was born with awful hips. They don't even go into their sockets. She probably would have been euthanized if I hadn't adopted her. She has been on meds all her life. She grew immune to Rimadyl and became very lethargic. The vet put her on Metacam and she became a new dog. But it was very pricey. I found VetDepot which saved me over 30%. Thank you VetDepot!
Metacam (meloxicam) Oral Suspension, 1.5 mg/mL, 100 mL
Our beautiful Golden (Roxy) is 11 years old ans we were really afraid it was time to put her down. We told the Vet we would try anything because she was not responding, not getting up to come to bed with us and not eating. The Dr. prescribed Metacam and we tried it. The first night Roxy was running around like a crazy dog and didn't sleep a wink and nor did I. I called the vet and asked if he gave her doggie cocaine. He laughed and said Roxy would mellow out by this evening and that her body was just getting used to the medicine. Ever since, she acts like she is four or five years old again. She runs, jumps, wrestles and plays with all her toys once again. Thank you Metacam.
A Miracle for my Little Beagle
My Beagle is 16 y/o and she was having trouble getting around in spite of being regularly on dasuquin ( doggie glucosamine-which is a very good product also,by the way). I was even having to carry her up the steps and she didn't want to go on walks. Well, Meloxicam has changed her life(and mine!) She was given it by my vet for pain and inflammation after some surgery she had. She did so well on it I asked for another prescription. Well, my little Casey is going up steps , willingly going on walks, and even LEAPED up the front steps the other day, something that took me back to when I first got her as a young beagle-rescue. I was so happy to see her doing well again. Another good thing: those kind of drugs in humans raise the blood pressure if taken chronically , but my vet said 'not so' in dogs. I will always keep her on it. She will need some blood work after 3 months my vet said if the prescription is to be refilled. BTW, the 100ml bottle was $50 cheaper through VetDepot.com from what the vet charged!
Metacam (meloxicam) Oral Suspension, 1.5 mg/mL, 100 mL
Our chocolate lab, Sophie is 8 years old and already having leg joint problems. Our vet can't explain the premature aging symptoms, but prescribed Metacam, which helps. We give Sophie one dose per day. The included dosing syringe is graduated by the dog's weight so its easy to give. Just measure the amount and squirt it into her mouth. Purchasing Metacam from VetDepot couldn't be easier since they contact my vet for a refill prescription. It saves quite a bit over buying from the vet. I usually buy enough to qualify for free shipping which saves even more.
