|Odin has been suffering from IBD (diagnosed) for a few months now, and my wonderful vet has been working with me on various treatment options - the most recent of which being Metronidazole 0.4ml once daily for a month (we finished that round about a month ago), and an Rx Biotic powder added to his canned food daily. He's still so so so skinny despite his ever-present appetite, and I'm taking him in today to discuss starting a Prednisone routine..
Here's my question/concern: Has anyone else had success or failure with Prednisone? I know cats are less likely to fall victim to the side effects (as compared to humans), but it still worries me to put him on steroids
He's still eating Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken with various flavors of Blue canned food (as per my vet, not to mention I work for Blue Buffalo ), but one of our other cats, Checkers, who had some urinary problems, is eating Royal Canin S/O Moderate Calorie, which Odin gets into occasionally and seems to have a flare-up shortly after eating it..
Again, I'm going to continue working closely with my vet, but I just wanted to hear about anyone's personal experiences with IBD and Prednisone.
Thanks so much in advance!!
