Rufus has been on pain relief for years for his arthritis. He is insured and I can claim the money back but as he is 11yrs old I have to pay 20% of the bill. The vets charge £80 for 180ml of Metacam and I can get it from VetUK for £20 and free postage if I buy 2 bottles. It's a no brainer as I can still claim 80% off Petplan. Shame about the £12 the vet charges for the prescription but still works out cheaper. VetUK are quick to acknowledge my emailed copy of the prescription and the package arrives the next day. Thanks. x
5 seems to keep my dogs arthritis at bay without any side affects
This is so much cheaper to buy online than from your vet. I have a rabbit who has been on metacam long term. If you can get your vet to give you a prescription for the biggest bottle it's really good because you save loads. Also the little bottles run out really quickly and it's hard to tell how much is left.
Even taking in to account the prescription fee and vet consultation fee required, this is far cheaper purchasing through VetUk. Very simple process too.
Product is easy to administer using syringe - dog is 18 years old and has improved mobility in legs. Less stiffness & no side effects.
Excellent product for my dog's condition in conjunction with other painkillers
A daily dose helps my dog with her painful neck. A couple of months ago I was concerned that if the pain couldn't be managed that would be it for her as she's too old for surgery. But for the time being, she's fine with her pain well controlled. Easy to order and quick, reliable delivery.
My 10 year old golden retriever suffered so badly from arthritis he struggled to get to his feet. We tried numerous remedies from the vet that didn't ease his pain at all until finally we tried glucosamine injections (every 6 months) and Metacam on a daily basis. It has worked wonders and he now skips around like a puppy. Can't recommend enough - but also ask your vet about the injections.
our border collie Max is 14 years old, bless him and still going strong.Has metcam once a day, no problem in him taking it just putting it on his food, also along with other medication....through VetUk exactly same as Vets , thank you VetUk
My 7yr old Doberman is like a puppy now after starting metacam this year cost £275.00 at vets in march to be told nothing could be done for her hip , Sold me a prescription for metacam and she,s great .
