Do I have to give them a star? They deserve 0.
I should have written this review years ago. When my kitty was peeing inappropriately, I went in to have her checked out. The vet, after spending all of 5 minutes with my cat, prescribed Metacam. He said he didn't know what was causing her to pee outside the litter box, but we should just try the Metacam and go from there.
Now, luckily, before I administered the Metacam, I READ THE BOX.
The box clearly stated that it should NEVER be given to cats. That it was for dogs only.
And luckily, there is such a thing as the Internet these days. I looked it up. And found oodles of info, such as this site: Metacamkills(dot)com
Basically, after giving your cat Metacam, you have a 1 in 3 chance of either sending them off into acute renal/kidney failure or DEATH.
I returned to Greenlake Animal Hospital, thinking the vet was negligent and had made a mistake. But no. Instead, he said, ""Oh, well. If your cat's kidneys fail, it's no big deal.""
No big deal? Being hooked up to a dialysis machine for the rest of its life? And for something that ""might"" help the inappropriate urination? He was just tossing it out there like it was aspirin to salve a headache.
This doctor should have his license revoked. I have never met a more callous or idiotic or negligent vet.
I DON'T recommend going there, unless you want to spend thousands on dialysis, surgeries and want your animal's life to be way shorter than normal.
Happy ending: my cat naturally stopped her peeing. She did have something small and medically wrong with her (blood in the urine)...And I went to a different vet clinic. And - she's still alive today.
Pros: Um, none, unless it's next door?
Cons: Your animal has a better chance of dying.
