My westie, who is now nearly ten years old, does suffer with a little bit of arthritis. Because of the fact that westies tend to be quite stocky with short little legs, they are prone to arthritis in their later years - and the key is to obviously treat the inflammation and the pain associated with arthritis so that she can be pain-free and also remain happy and active. Our vet recommended Metcam which contains meloxicam and sodium benzoate, and together it forms an anti-inflammatory and analgesic which is particularly suited to osteoarthritis.

My cat was given oral suspension metacam for pain relief following dental surgery. She had pre op blood tests and there was no sign of kidney problems. 3 months later I'm told she now HAS kidney disease which I have since found out Metacam can cause in cats.
