Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver. Our 12 yr old Maltese was diagnosed with bladder cancer and given weeks to live. Vet suggested Metacam daily as she had seen a decrease in tumor size in other dogs taking Metacam. This was 1 year ago. We are grateful to have had another year with our fur child. Thanks Metacam!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drug seems very effective... Our little dog Gracie was becoming very inactive. The vet told us that she had the signs of arthritis, even though she is not an old dog. He prescribed Metacam, and after about a month, she really became very active again. She just seems happier. All I can say is that this product worked for our little Gracie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief. Using for several weeks as needed for Shiba Inu with knee issues. Shiba’s mobility has been much better and he is showing signs of relief and greater happiness. It’s not a cure all but definitely has brought relief and mobility back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great success!!! I started my 9 year old daschund on Metacam a year ago due to pain and stiffness, and probably due to arthritic symptoms. She now can go up and down the ramps and steps again with no problems. With quarterly check ups by her vet, she will remain on it. Great med. Thank you Medicam. Thank you 1800 PetMeds!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra lease on life Our 6 year old Aldo was a rescue from the floods in the Mississippi area and was sent down here in SoFL with so many other rescues. We picked him from our local Humane Society & he was a very scared 2 month old. He has given us sui much love & happiness. On his 6th bday we found out he has Osteosarcoma in his right rear leg. He is a 90 lb treeing walker coonhound & as a large dog we opted to let him live his life out. They gave us 6-12 months. That was March 31, 2019. As of today and being on this terrific medicine, he still is very active plays, hunts, swims & chases squirrels where later he suffers, we are so so grateful for this medicine!!! It does work n help the cancer in our Aldo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metacam I have had my little girl, Tameka LeLe on Metacam, off and on for over 11 years. She was born with a congrutiated elbow and now she has arthritis in it badly. She has been my Service Dog for 9 years now and does very well on the Metacam when she needs it. I would recommend this treatment to anyone with these issues.

I see in the product info that it says NOT to use with cats...but my vet just prescribed 0.2ml of metacam oral 1x daily for 5 days for my cat. Is this going to harm her??

Asked by: alanaj93
No. This medication is normally prescribed to dogs. However, many vets prescribes this medication to feline as well. If this is something your veterinarian prescribed to your baby, your veterinarian can assure to you that this medication is safe for your furry baby.

What is the most important information I should know about Metacam?

Contact the veterinarian if the pet has bloody, black or tarry stools, blood in vomit, swelling or rapid weight gain due to fluid retention, unusual fatigue or weakness, yellowing of the eyes, excessive itching, abdominal pain or tenderness as these symptoms could indicate serious side effects. Warning: Repeated use of meloxicam in cats has been associated with acute renal failure and death. Do not administer additional doses of injectable or oral meloxicam to cats.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Metacam to my pet?
