My kitty Leo, who was a greater friend and family member than
any human, died 2 days ago and we're all having a horrible time
coping. I can't get anything done because I will just cry.
The last sight of him was him barely breathing and purring
because we came to see him and then he died. Oh my god it
was so horrible. We took him to the vet a week ago because
he was hiding in the basement. We thought he might of had
arthritis pain. The vet prescribed Metacam because his
blood work was excellent. He was great the next two
days and seemed so much better and then he got really lethargic
and sick. he was resting his head on his food bowl.
We took him in for an emergency visit and the other vet said he
was experiencing kidney failure, most likely from the metacam,
and we had to hurry and get him to an emergency clinic and flush
his system. It was unsuccessful though. Our
relatively healthy Leo, our baby, was killed by this horrible
medicine. I want to poison the people who make it or think
its good for cats. I have so much anger and want to help
in any way i can to stop this.
