My name is Vanna from Houston, TX and my cat, Topaz, was
prescribed Metacam yesterday for pain management.
I wanted to write you so that you can tell others and that this
drug is STILL being used improperly and that no matter the dose,
it has caused problems with my Topaz.
He began staring off into space, disinterested, and
non-responsive. He would not eat or drink, and when he did go to
the litter box, I found black stool left behind. I was in
Dr. Michalec from ABC Animal and Bird Clinic in Sugarland, TX was
the one who gave my cat this drug. This lady assured me that
everything was fine and made it seem like she really cared. She
did NOT tell me anything about the side effects, nor tell me this
medicine was not approved for cats. Thanks to your website, I
found out about Metacam that same day I brought him home and
discontinued use after one dose. I don't know what I would've
done if something were to happen to my baby.
For reference, Topaz is a neutered male, 2 years 4 months old,
and was given .2 of Metacam.
Please spread the word so others will not use this clinic!!!
Thank you so much for this website,
