Jennifer, Has it been ruled out that Sebastian's rear leg weakness may be due to anemia? My kitty Fu gets a 10 mg.'s of pred a day and 200 ml of fluids. His vet said that would lead to suppression of his red cell blood count - Fu needs those meds more; sometime's his back legs look wobbly.

Anemia has been ruled out for Sebastian. He recently had blood work done and everything looked great. I vets say it may be something in his spinal cord. I am very worried. Sebastian was put on Depo Medrol for a two year period because of mouth sores. It helped with the sores, but at the time I

I'm not sure how long either of the Interferons remain in the system, but when I was waiting for my Alpha to arrive I spoke with my vets about whether they could overlap, or if one would conflict with the other in any way. I was told that there shouldn't be a problem following one with the

Hello Kerry and Bandy, It sounds like you have a good vet taking care of Bandy. You are already giving him Baytril which is a full-spectrum antibiotic. My Grace went through the same sort of thing, (her problem manifested in anemia symptoms, no problems with her kidneys), with Clavomox. She
