I took my 5.5 month old ragdoll kitten for spaying this week. After 2 of the 4 doses of metacam given to her for pain I noticed she was so hyper, jumping up walls and nonstop climbing. She also appeared to be watching the ceiling and I could not get her attention (possibly hallucinating). She responded very well after surgery, ate , drank and went to bathroom almost immediately after coming home from surgery.

She did not appear to be in pain but I did not want to take a chance so that is why I gave her the pain meds. Today did not give pain meds but she is very calm and not hyper like on metacam. I believe this was not a good med for her. I will continue to monitor for any changes in behavior and changes.
