I did end up giving him his dose with dinner, even though I hadn't heard anything. He ate his dinner fine is now chewing on a shank bone. He is a little stiff, but that is to be expected when you go flying throught the air like he did. We are very lucky to have him with us this evening. Damn squirrel..and he wasn't even chasing it, our other dog was, so I ran after her and he ran after me. The car saw me with Luna and that I was waving to make him slow down, he barely slowed down, hit Otis head on and kept going…I so wanted to wring that mans neck. It was an accident I understand, but at least stop and see if you can help. Otis went flying through the air, and once on the ground again, speed off like a rocket scared to death, it took me several minutes to calm him down to the point were I could catch him..My poor 8 year old daughter witnessed the whole thing and is really shook up this evening, but again, thankfully Otis is here with us at home.
The little info on Metacam I found, made it seem "pretty" harmless, and the fact that it is addicting didn't worry me, since he only got a few doses of it for the next couple of days.
