Metacam

Anyone have experience with this med? I started my dog on it 2 days ago now. Vet says once a day for 5 days and then judge and use as needed.
Also starting regime of glucosamine chondroitin and omega 3.

I know the metacam can be hard on the liver etc. But I swear after 2 days of it my dog has gotten a year younger. He was playing tonight...and feeling good.

Medication is always about trade-offs, risk vs benefit. If its making him feel that much better, go for it, and deal with the side effects, if and when they occur. Your Vet may want to do periodic blood tests, just to monitor.
