  •  Metacam option (9+ / 0-)

    Technically, metacam (meloxicam) is not officially approved for use in cats in the U.S. (It is a standard arthritis/pain relief option in Australia, for instance.) I have a 14 y/o white ASH spayed female who's been on a very low 2-3/wk dose for more than 5 years. Her recent blood work and UA came back all WNL! She has a lot of messed up vertebra in her back (probably congenital -- had her whole life) and still gets around just fine. You could talk with your vet about the pro's and con's.

    •  Thank you for this information (4+ / 0-)

      will look into it. It sounds like your cat really benefits from having a smart hooman!

      I love it that Obama's channeling Harry Truman: "I don't give 'em hell; I just tell the truth and they think it's hell!"
