    Where can I get ketoprofen?

    I cant seem to find places that sell it online. I found a local vet dispensary near me that sells meloxicam but I believe it has more side effects. Only reason I would get it is if I cat had a minor pain to be used once in a while for a day or two. My cat tends to hurt himself a lot and most...
