I started my 6 year old Guinea Pig on 5 cc of Metacam daily when her hind legs stopped functioning. She began to show amazing progress immediately and has since made a full recovery. My vet recommends keeping her on this dose going forward. Metacam has been a lifesaver for my pet!
My 8 year old chihuahua was diagnosed with inter vertebral disc disease. He was in terrible pain and at times couldn't walk. We couldn't touch him or pick him up and it broke my heart. We travel a lot and I realized I had to find a vet in Ft. Stockton, TX to try and alleviate his suffering. I was afraid his life was nearing an end. The vet in Ft. Stockton said we should give Metacam a try. After 3 weeks, he is much better. He walks again, and appears to have very little pain. It's a relief to see him almost back to normal. I'm thankful for VetDepot because we do travel, it's easy to order online and get the medication no matter where we are.
Metacam has made such a difference for my dog. It has improved her symptoms by 100% and she's mobile and happy again.
Really seems to help my 14 year old doxie who suffers from arthritis and residual pain from a repaired herniated back disc. She now plays every day like a puppy!
