PB has lost the fight ... 9/12 he was diagnosed with Hermangiosarcoma. and we decided based on his advanced age to keep him comfortable until it was his time.
Today is the day..he no longer has the quality of life he deserves...
R.I.P. PB ...I love you and always will...
My cat PB was prescribed Metacam Oral for his arthritis in his knees on May
We'll it's been a
year since PB's bout with metacam poisoning...
So there is hope if your animal develops kidney issues due to metacam.
Thanks to Capeway Veterinary Hospital and Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists (Emergency) and a special thanks to Dr. Nandini Jayaram and Dr. Diane Turner-Murray...
Now for my complaints!
Boehringer-Ingelheim (vetmedica) has never showed any concern for the health of PB with the exception of a phone call placed to CCVS.
I have complained numerous times regarding the dangers of this medication and the ways the it's drug reps. have influenced the veterinarians prescribing this drug for our feline friends. There needs to be information given to pet owners informing them about the possible dangers of giving this drug to cats.
I have received hundreds of complaints/stories/questions since I created this site..
Some of these came too late..
To anyone reading this site... PLEASE... PLEASE ...
PLEASE talk to your vet regarding the risks of giving this drug to your pet.
And if it did affect your pet complain to Boehringer-Ingelheim and the FDA.
Wishing you good health to you and your pets....
Dave & PB
