Hello Lindy,

So sorry to hear about Albert's problems ...

My name is***** I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon and I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.

1. Overdoses of Metacam { meloxicam } can be hard on the stomach and could cause Albert discomfort but if you stick to 0.1 mg per pound of his bodyweight as an initial dose followed by 0.05 mg per pound once daily given orally then this should help without the danger of side effects.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott
