My lhasa apso has just been diagnosed with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia. Thie is where is red blood cells are being destroyed by his own body. He has had a transfusion of Oxyglobin which is an artificial blood product to shut down his immune system then is was restarted with steroids. This all happened as of yesterday, he is now on 8 Prednicare a day for a week , reducing to half the dose for the subsequent 3 weeks. We can see an improvement already in his blood count, appetite and condition. I have the utmost faith in my vet regarding this drug. He clearly told us that Vinney's appetite would improve, he would drink and urinate more and that these were the short term side affects. He is only looking at Vinney being on Prednicare for 4 weeks, he said that 6 months or more would affect his liver and could cause diabetes. I will be following my vets advice to get Vinney better and hopefully he will live to a good age.

I certainly hope he does well and following your vets advice is the best suggestion I can make, because none of our information pertains to the use of medications in animals and the effects on their medical conditions or any possible side effects.

How is he doing?
