Ugh, I would like some opinions everyone. His leg is greatly improved (no whining, and almost no limp), but in the last 2 hrs he has peed 3 times, twice with a tiny bit of blood in it at the end (snow makes it easy to see this ). I am very inclined to think from the metacam, but I called my vet who does not think so since he has only had 2 doses. I haven't noticed him drinking more than normal, and the 3 times he did pee they were not dribbles, but normal volumes of urine (no straining, no licking, no signs of UTI). Not to mention he only just finished his round of Clavaseptin on thursday so I would highly doubt UTI (my vet did agree with me there).
He is fine otherwise, and of course if I continue to notice anything off about his urination habits I will be collecting a sample first thing monday morning to take in.
I really do not want to give him the metacam tonight, I just feel like it could be related to that, and knowing the scary side effects of NSAIDs I'm just leery. Thoughts from anyone? I really do love our vet. She is great, but I do disagree about it possibly being from the metacam, and I really don't feel that he needs it tonight since he is so improved.
