Yes, they are. He started with being gassy, having small bowel movements and burping over the last few days. I told Shaun I thought he was going to pass something any day now. So I'm still thinking there may be something in there

I don't think so. He's been on Azathioprine for almost 6 weeks now, and high doses of Prednisone for almost 4 months. His immune system is non-existent which is why he has Pappillomavirus and Giardia. I think his blood count is also much too low to withstand it. Hubby and I were discussing that today. But I will be talking to our regular vet tomorrow and plan to ask.
