My cat, Happy Cat, died
around 2 am. He had a scratch on his eye, the doctor opperated
on it ( $1200. opperation ) and then gave me several
medications to give him. One of which was METACAM. Several days
before he died he bacome lythargic, wouldn't eat, and drank very
litte. He was on Metacam for almost two weeks. He seemed to be
in so much pain. I called the vet. that night before he died
trying to figure what I could do for him. The vet. never
returned my call.
About a month ago, I had another cat with an abcessed tooth.
They operated on it and subscribed METACAM for him. My cat,
( Jabernaut ) died a short time afterwards. After Happy Cat
died, I looked on the box of Metacam and it said
"for dogs only" So I looked it up on the internet and
found this site stating that Metacam kills cats. After reading
several stories from the site I see that I'm in the company of
many that have lost their beloved cats from using Metacam.
I miss my Jaubernaut sooo much, and now my Happy Cat is gone as
well. After reading the horrible stories from the site I'm very
upset at my vet. Has their been any leagle action taken against
vets that subscribe Metacam for cats? Or would it just be a
waist of time? I've not only thrown over $2000.00 down the
drain, but more heartbreaking for me, I've lost two of my loved
ones. Can you advise me on this matter.
