Advantages: I haven't seen any yet
Disadvantages: major change in personality, lethargic, no appetite, confused
My seven year old Golden mix tore something yet to be diagnosed in her knee and was prescribed Metacam by the emergency vet yesterday a Saturday. I want her off of it ASAP. It has changed her behavior and personality in a frightening way. She is very lethargic, confused and has no appetite. There must be some other pain medication that doesn't cause these side effects. She is so not herself. I haven't seen any advantages except that she is so doped that she isn't feeling anything.
Summary: I am hoping there is something else out there with less side effects
