Spinoff - old arthritic cat and Metacam
My 16 plus year old persian (tiny, tiny cat - weighs 5-6 lbs - very frail but not skinny) is on Metacam every 3 days for pain. She can't jump very well, have seen her miss and fall. In the other cat NQR/lameness thread this medication was mentioned. Can anyone give me pros and cons of this med?
She also seems to have Parkinsons-like symptoms - will stop and freeze in one place, like she can't move or has forgotten what she was doing. Sometimes when she sneezes she almost falls over - balance issue?
She has a great appetite and is very affectionate, always wanting to be in my lap. I don't think it's her time to cross the bridge, but am just concerned that I am doing everything I can for her. I love my vet and trust him very much, he's very experienced and I swear he loves my cats as much as I do.
