|My mommy is happy that I did go pee one time today. The vet thought my kidneys may not be able to produce urine, we are glad that they were wrong. I have not eaten since Monday but guess what? I ate one spoon full of Hills A/D on my own tonight, and I had 3 treats.
My mom found a website called "Metacam Kills Cats" when she was researching Metacam tonight. She read that it is NOT FDA approved for use in cats. I had one injection and one oral dose. They sent me home with 3 doses, but my mom quit giving it to me when I started vomiting. I did not get the Metacam from my regular vet, I had to go to another vet because it was Sunday night and my vet was not open. My mom thinks that probably some kitties do not get sick from the Metacam, but she found that many do have kidney problems, just like me. Our family dog has been taking Metacam since last July and has never had any problems. I have been drinking lots of water tonight, but no pee. I go back to the hospital for treatment tomorrow. My vet thinks I do better at home than in the clinic, so he sometimes just shows my mom how to give me my medicines. At the vet, I hide under a blanket all day. I am more comfortable here, and he thinks that will help me to get better faster. I do not want to say bad things about Metacam since I know it probably helps some kitties, but it almost killed me, and we are not even sure that my kidneys will start functioning properly again.........my mom is trying to stay hopeful, but she is still crying a lot..... Purrs, Bonnie
