No, it’s not weird taking “dog drugs”. In fact, most vets will tell people to get their dog’s meds at the pharmacy since it is cheaper than from the vet because the pharmacy has generics, vets don’t. Be careful with the Prednisone. If you don’t have enough folic acid in your system, the Prednisone can become toxic. You need to let your own doctor know that you are taking this med. Steroids don’t always work and play well other medications, even over-the-counter ones. I’ve been down that road and it wasn’t fun.
His rationale is that he has a number of clients who will only bring their cats in for wellness exams if they believe vaccines are needed. Norsworthy says he's determined not to lose the opportunity to do annual checkups on cats in his practice. So he uses only the 1-year rabies vaccine, and tells his clients he must see their cats yearly.
Norsworthy believes "Internet chatter" scares cat owners into believing vaccines are dangerous. He notes that his practice vaccinated 25 percent fewer cats in 2012 compared to 2007. He says he sees only one case of feline vaccine-associated sarcoma for every 65,000 vaccines he injects.
I wrote in about my Corgi who we had just started on Atopica. Unfortunately is almost 30 days in and she’s so sick. She is so lethargic. She can sleep for 6 hours at a time, she has no interest in going on her walks anymore. Won’t eat and throws up foam. I’m taking her off it since there have been no positive results and lots of side effects. Now what to do? My vet offered to refer me to a dermo. but he’s already done scrapings and a biopsy. I can’t imagine what else they might do. I keep her sedated with Benadryl, but this is no life for a dog. Anyone have suggestions?
