Autoimmune hemolytic anemia

December 8th, 2011, 07:35 AM
Hi..on oct.11/11 my 3 year old rott mix was diagnosed with autoimmune hemolytic anemia,and hypothyroid put him on predizone 20 mil ..3 pills a day for 3 days..then 2 for 3 days and then one every other day till gone..were 60 tabs in bottle...took him back for bod tests..they were good so vet said to give him 1 tab every 3 days and that he will be on this rest of his life..did this for 2 weeks or less and thought I should go to another vet ,,new vet said he is being weaned to fast and wants me to give him 2 pills a day for 30 days and then bring him in for tests and if he looks good then he will start weaning him off..does this sound right to you folks that have gone thru this? He is also taking 3 mil gram thyroid med for hypothyroid ...I had all the tests for him and every thing was ok..they don't know why this happened..I know his litter mates have none of this.
