Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] Tumble- advice needed (metacam)

Isn't 3/4 drops to much? When I had my ferret on metacam, I was told only 1 drop. That stuff is extremely hard on their liver I believe.

[Metacam is Meloxicam, an NSAID,
and is also sold as Mobic and
Mobicox. You can read details about
it in;amp;A=1752

Dosing for most medications depends also
on the WEIGHT of the ferret, and ferrets can
differ a lot in their weights.

I do not find dosing details for that med
in any of my ferret veterinary texts.

I lack time to check further but if you go to
you can find 34 past vet messages, any of
which may be relevant (and 2 messages
each from two people who I think are not
vets but did not check)

Just put this phrase:
Metacam or Meloxicam or Mobic or Mobico
in the "search message body for"

and this phrase:
AFERRETVET or ferrethealer or Williams or drkaren or suedvm
in the
from line contains

Leave the other box empty and then click on the search button.

Then just click open the messages you want to read.
