My cat Cleopatra had urinary stones. For comfort the vet prescribed
Metacam. They gave me 10 pre-filled syringes (oral) for each
day. After the dosing, she became lethargic, wasnít
eating, hovering over the water dish but wouldnít drink.
The initial vet appointment I was told she just didnít feel
good, maybe had a cold. That evening she was worse, took her
in for bloodwork. Did not get the results until the
following day, to which I was told her kidneys were failing.
Took her in for a days worth of IVís, xrayís, urinalysis and
everything else they do. That evening I was told her quality
of life was less than 10% so I euthanized her.
What a horrible thing to know that you
contributed to the death of your own beloved baby. These
vets should know better, that is what we pay THEM for.
