Free 3ml Pack Of Metacam® Trial Treatment
12 years agoCould more cats benefit from chronic pain relief? Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica is offering veterinary practices the opportunity to provide cat owners with a free 3ml pack of Metacam® to trial treatment in cats with chronic pain. Each free Metacam pack will provide up to seven days’ pain relief to an average-sized arthritic cat. Metacam comes in a cat friendly syringe which is easy to administer, offers accurate dosing and is highly palatable in 95% of cats1. To qualify for the offer, veterinary surgeons have to fill in a simple redemption form logging five new cases. The offer is limited to 25 free bottles per practice. Replacement stock will be sent via their usual veterinary wholesaler. In addition, all completed forms will be entered into a prize draw to win one of six copies of the textbook ‘Feline Orthopedics’ It is estimated that up to 90% of older cats (over 12 years of age) have radiographic evidence of degenerative joint disease2. However, cats may be more restrained than dogs in the way they react to chronic OA pain, and subtle behaviour changes can be a sign that cats are suffering from chronic pain3. For further information on Metacam and the 3ml trial pack offer, please contact your local Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica territory manager or telephone 01344 746959.
