Hi Darren
Good news i would go with what he is saying metacam is a good drug also you should see some improvement quite quickly , feel bad for making you worry but as you no its difficult over the net to no exactly whats up without seeing the animal and after all the vets opinion is far more expertise than mine but great news as said the old man needs a walking stick now

Thanks every one for the comments, i feel better now as i know it's not gout and down to poor husbandry, I appreciate its alway difficult without seeing the animal but at least me and a lot of others have learn'nt about Gout, and that what we are all here to do is learn and exchange ideas.

Thanks Agian

Darren

I'm glad it's not Gout too. Hopefully he'll be up and running around in no time.

same really vet said would be at least a month, before we see any improvement, even then might not work as he is on very low dose.

Is eating like a pig, though

Thanks for asking

Darren
