I don’t know the dosage that Britney was on, but I do know that I have been taking Prednisone for about 10 years now for my Rheumatoid Arthritis. Started at a high dose and am now on a low maintenance dose. My bloodwork is done every 2 months and even after 10 years, there has been no adverse side effects to my liver. I have tried to go off, but I need it. I would rather take the Prednisone, than suffer with the disease.
If Banjo ever needed to take it, it wouldn’t bother me at all to give it to her, based on my experience with it.
I don’t know anything about the Vanectyl-p.
I hope this eases your mind.
We’d love to know how to make your brother in laws special paste. We have 2 busy boxer girls, a 3 yr old & a 1 1/2 yr old. Our 3 year old is in renal failure (diagnosed 1 1/2 yrs ago) & is being treated using both eastern & western medical philosophy. She has been doing amazingly well (her doctors are very pleased) with the exception of the redness between her toes. She is not a constant licker/chewer & hasn’t suffered with any allergy problems. Our 1st boxer was our allergy challenged baby. We have tried regular vinegar & Epsom salts but they didn’t do anything. We’re hoping to cure it naturally & use standard medicine as last resort. Thank you!
The shots definitely helped A LOT with Elsie, but we still need to take steps to minimize the allergens in our home. Elsie is also allergic to dust – which often means dust mites. We’ve found that using dust mite covers on our mattresses and pillows helped us, so if Napoleon sleeps near your bed, it’s possible it could help him too. You’ll want to regularly wash Napoleon’s bedding too. The dehumidifier is also supposed to be very good at keeping down the mites – we use ours throughout the year, as we live in a pretty humid climate. Keeps down mold too (another allergen). I guess there isn’t one right answer, we all just need to try to find the best combination of steps that works for our pet and our family.
