Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

In regards ***** ***** question, Metacam could be used as a treatment alongside an antibiotic for the treatment of suspected flu (at a proper dose for your wee one's weight, of course). It wouldn't be used alone since it is just an anti-inflammatory but it can reduce airway inflammation, reduce fever, and help them feel better as we treat the infection suspected.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
