My 10 year old Himalayan was put to rest this morning. The Vet gave him Metacam last Thursday and I followed with another dose on Saturday. Sunday I took him to the emergency vet and he stayed until today with IV's and a lot of bloodwork. Unfortuneately Dill did not go for needles and I think being angry and unable to fend off the nurses he suffered a heart attack and died this morning. All a result of matacam. I wish I had seen your site earlier. There is more to the story but I won't go on.
