... him for four days and found he was really injured. We don't know what happened. He has a horrible bruise along his spine. The vet prescribed tramadol. Quarter of a tablet. I was very nervous to give this. I followed a vets intrusctuons re: medication for my cat and the medication was metacam. My cat healed from surgery and died from renal failure due to the medication. Had I researched this I would have known that metacam should not have been administered to a cat. Definitely not by me everyday. Those were my vets instructions. Obviously I see another vet now. They don't even give that medication to dogs. I think you need to seek professional help, however we have to be our own advocates as well. Not everyone practice's medicine the same and ethically
