My new vet prescribed the Meloxidyl oral suspension for my 16-year-old cat who he diagnosed with arthritis. The info he gave me and other info I’ve found online is very confusing to me. So I came here to ask other cat owners about it.
What do you think of it? What do you know about it? According to a couple of websites it is approved for cats in almost every country except the US (they didn’t say why). The US sites say it can cause acute renal failure and death in cats.
So why does the rest of the world approve it, and why did this vet prescribe it, and why, after one dose, did my cat apparently feel better and eat such a big breakfast this morning?
She has been hobbling a little on a few mornings, which is one reason we went to the vet in the first place.
