Surgery and acute musculoskeletal pain
Cats, just like people, experience short-term (acute) pain after surgery or an injury.
To keep this pain under control your vet has prescribed Metacam® oral suspension. Metacam® oral suspension is an easy-to-give liquid which helps control pain during recovery from surgery or an injury. It is important that you give Metacam® according to your vet’s advice.
If your cat has had a general anaesthetic then the after-effects (e.g. unsteadiness and drowsiness) normally wear off in 24 hours. If you have any concerns about your cat while he or she is recovering from surgery or an injury you should contact your vet for advice.
