Metacam for Routine Pain Control
I have an 8 yr old Border Collie with severe hip dysplasia who has been on Metacam since he was 6 months old. We thought we would have to put him down he was so bad, but with regular exercise and Metacam every day, he has led a full and exciting life. As he has aged he cannot do the Adirondack walks he used to do or swim as far but he still runs, chases and does all the things a normal dog does. He is also on an oral pain med daily for evening pain control but we have had no side effects from using this medicine daily. VetDepot is great. They get the script from the vet and fill in a timely fashion.
Metacam (meloxicam) Oral Suspension, 1.5 mg/mL, 100 mL
I have been giving my 13 year old Airedale Metacam for over a year. It seems to really help with his arthritis and is not hard on his stomach like some other NSAIDS for dogs.
<p>When Rimadyl wasn't strong enough anymore, the vet changed my dog to Metacam. We saw an immediate improvement. It is a liquid administered in a syringe into mouth, but I follow it up with a small treat and my dog is fine with it.</p>
Two Paws up for Metacam and VetDepot!
When things started getting achy for my 10 year old dog, my vet first put him on Rimadyl and then Metacam. Both medicines helped, but the results were better and longer lasting on Metacam. My dog has a sensitive stomach, but he tolerates this medicine with no problems. It's a liquid you'll need to measure to the correct dosage in a provided dropper based on your dog's weight (it's easy). Then squirt the liquid into the back of your dog's mouth or put in his food, but either way it should be taken with food.
And VetDepot has it for a much better price than my vet. Two paws up!
My dog has the worst hips ever! Coupled with the fact she's getting old. Metacam made the difference between her completely being a totally unhappy suffering dog to a relatively happy, normal functioning pup again. It made all the difference in the world. And VetDepot made it affordable for me to purchase.
