Cats and Metacam oral

Sent to Cat Experts February 13, 2005 12:30 a.m.
My vet gave me Metacam (oral) to give my cat for 7 days. Now my cat has kidney failure. Should the vet treat him for free as long as he has left?The box with the medicine clearly says "for dogs only" under the vets instruction. On the internet this medicine seemed only to be used for cats after surgery and given once only by syringe. Cornelia
