Metacam 221 221
Works great I have been giving this medication to my cat for a year. The first time I gave it to her to relieve pain from arthritis, it was like having a kitten in the house again. By her being 21 years old, and only around 6 pounds I only give her .2 ml. every two to three days as needed. Even with that small amount she does great . I really wished I had known about this medication sooner. 05/17/2011
Casey is doing fabulous!! Our Cocker Spaniel, Casey, who is 16 years old, was in terrible pain from Arthritis in his hips and legs. He was very slow at getting up and could not jump up on the bed or the couch. We found out about Metacam and gave it try. Now, Casey is like a new dog!!! Casey is now playing with toys again, jumping up and down on our bed and couch and acts like a puppy again. We would highly recommend Metacam to anyone who has a dog in pain and is practically lifeless. We give Metacam a definate two thumbs up!!! 03/28/2011
It works! Our basset hound is 11 years old and was in a great deal of pain . Our vet prescribed metacam after surgery and it really helped. We went to our vet for a refill and the cost was prohibitive. So, we turned to Pet Meds, which we've used for years and got the metacam at a reasonable price, free shipping and, of course, a treat is ALWAYS included for our beloved Darcy. We love PetMed! 03/19/2011

Best product for arthritis We've tried a few products for our 15 year old dog's arthritis, but Metacam has proven to be the most effective. Before Metacam, he could barely hobble out to the front yard, but now he can go on short walks -- about one full block and back. Naturally, he still has arthritis, but he has regained his mobility. He is much happier. One of our main concerns is to slow him down a little when the other dogs get excited and he starts to run around. We watch his stool carefully to make certain he isn't bleeding internally. 05/20/2013

His vet is not available till tomorrow. He has dislocated his shoulder (again).
Answer:¬†The syringe that is provided denotes the dose by the weight of the dog, this medication should be give once a day based on the weight of the pet. You should still consult with your veterinarian to confirm the correct dose.
I get metacam from my vet, however it's terribly expensive. I'm trying to see if yours is the same as what my vet is giving, but @ a lesser cost. My dogs bottle says "metacam oral solution per ml ..give 2mls once daily & qty is 120 ml. If this is the same thing as what you have, i'd rather purchase thru you as i know the cost is less. thank you
My Rotti (125lbs) has a torn lig. in his back leg. Someone gave me a bottle of Medicam. With our storm weather I can't tell you how much better he is with this med. I cannot get him to a vet because he cannot get in my van. He cannot use his back legs for balance to jump in the car. How can I get this medicine without taking him to a vet.
Answer:¬†Hi, and thank you for your question. Unfortunately, as a licensed pharmacy, we can only dispense Metacam with direct approval from a vet, or an original hand written prescription mailed in to us. You may want to see if there's a low cost clinic or SPCA in your area that can help you offset the cost.

My dog, a 13-year-old shepard mix (68 lb) has elevated liver enzymes (+ 3000 ALP), but is in good health. The level decreased already from 4200 within 3 weeks because we give him high amounts of milk thistle and Denamarin. My question is: can I give him Metacam every other day? Right now my vet is ok with a daily dosage (1.2 ml/3 mg suspension). Thx for letting me know.
The Vet prescribed 1.5 mg/mL Oral Suspension Metacam for out dog. The dosage instruction is to give 2.5 mLs the first treatment and 1.2 mLs daily thereafter. However, the syringe does not show mL increments, it shows the weight of the dog in pounds. How do I measure out mL based on this type of syringe?
Answer:¬†Measure the Metacam in the syringe to the weight of your dog in pounds. Put that amount in her food once a day. That's what we do and it works great!
Answer:¬†The conversion is that 1 ml of metacam 1.5mg/ml equals 30 lbs as marked on the syringe.
Therefore if your pet requires 2.5ml the first day....Draw up the syringe to the 75 lb mark.
Thereafter......the 1.2 ml....would be the equivalent of the 36 lb mark on the syringe.
