For dogs in pain

AdvantagesEffective, non-steroidal pain relief.

DisadvantagesThere can be side effects and you have to be able to use a dosing syringe.

"...first problem you encounter with Metacam is that you need to be able to use a dosing syringe. That's where you attach the syringe to the bottle of medication, turn the bottle upside down and draw off the amount you need. [Tip: let go of the bottle once you've got it upside down and don't touch it again until you've drawn off the amount you need.] The second point is that you'll need to know and remember your dog's weight as the markings on the side ..."

Pain relief for your best friend.

AdvantagesFast acting pain relief without steroids

DisadvantagesSome side effects and not 100% effective

" suggested that we try Metacam instead. Metacam comes as a pack containing the medicine bottle itself and the dosing syringe.

Pain relief for our precious pets

AdvantagesWorks for both of our pets, easy to administer

DisadvantagesOnly available on prescription

"Our family first came across Metacam a couple of years ago when our rabbit, Ethan (my niece named him after her first boyfriend!) was ill. Since then, Ethan has been prescribed it regularly and now our cat, Tom who is very sadly suffering from cancer has been prescribed it as a pain reliever. Although I no longer live with Ethan and Tom I do visit very regularly to see my boys (and Mum and Dad too....I suppose!) and have used this with them on numerous ..." Read review

AdvantagesEffective painkiller for your dog

Disadvantages Expensive

"Metacam has been on the market for a good few years now. Some people are a bit reluctant to start their elderly dogs on it as they feel it's the beginning of the end. (That's what I have had said to me on several occasions!!!) All I know that I never want my best friend to be in pain unnecessarily. Why Used? For alleviation of inflammation and pain in both acute and chronic musculo skeletal disorders. E.g.: pain after operations and arthritis. ..." Read review
