Hello sorry it has taken me so long to get back on this awesome site, anyway I found out what Abby's problem was on the 22nd of November they tested her and she has Immune mediated polyartritis an auto-immune disease affecting multiple affecting multiple joints Here is the plan we are doing She is taking 1/2 a pepcid AC twice a day and then she took 1/2 a Tramadol twice a day for a week then we quit that and since the 30th of November she has been taking 50mg of prednisone 1/2 of one twice a day then on tuesday she is to take 1/2 a tablet twice a day for 7 days then taper her off to 1/2 a tablet every other day intill gone. We go back to the Vet on the 13th. They said she will drink alot of water (which) she does and wil have to go out and go potty alot (which) she does anyway my Hubby thinks the prednisone is hard on her but I do have faith in the vet so I am doing this I am wondering if this will constpate her? Have any of you ever had to use this for your sweet pets?
