    Re: I love you, Sly. Goodbye, little bear.

    So sorry about Sly. Love the tribute for his stone. I'm not on the forum a lot so I do not know the history but I can tell you gave him a wonderful life. He was lucky to have you.

    :( She only had one more dose. Just gave it to her at 2:00. It was .16 CC of Metacam 1.5mg/cc. Once every 24 hours. I am going to call for more. Should the dose be increased?
