Welcome and thanks for asking your question. I am sorry the expert you requested is not available. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

1- How long has he been on Metacam?

2- How much does he weigh?

3- Is he lethargic?

4- Does he have diarrhea?

5- Is it fair to say he is drinking more than usual?

6- Can you take a look at his gums and see if they are pink or pale?
