My vet prescribed Metacam for my cat, Pepsi, when he developed a limp the beginning of May. I gave it to him only 4 or 5 times, and he is now in acute kidney failure. He’s only 12.
He went from 14 pounds in May to 10 pounds in July. He’s also very anemic.
After reading the article on the persiancats.org page, I became sick at the thought that I could have caused his illness by giving him this medication. I don’t know if he’s going to survive or not.
I would not recommend this for any cat.
