Wow, metacam is once/daily, period. For the initial dose, you can double the first dose, but that's per the vet's instructions. Where I work, nothing goes out of the hospital without a label. In the US, it comes in 0.5 mg/ml and 1.5 mg/ml concentrations. It is dosed by body weight to the lowest 5 lbs (so a 43 lb dog would take the 40 lb dog dose). Not to be skeptical, but did your breeder show you the paperwork from the vet?
