My 14 yr old cat, who for some time was pooping outside the box, was diagnosed (palpation of lower lumbar area and then radiograph)with this condition. The vet classified it as minor (stage 1) and believed it was causing the accidents as it would hurt to poop (crouching, pushing involved). We started a course of Metacam (0.7 ml per day-she's 14.3 lbs) and saw an improvement in her attitude and return to using the litter box. I don't want to keep her on Metacam long term, but I don't want her to return to her having accidents either. I need long term pain/arthritis control. I looked at Promaxol and Arthro-IonX. Can you recommened either for my situation? And how long would the treatment take for effects to be apparent?
