I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. If you can find a holistic vet in your area - even if you have to drive a while - you may be able to use holistic or homeopathic remedies to help.

It’s a spray that supposedly removes all vaccination side effects from dogs I have seen it on dogs naturally magazine website

Anti-Vaccinosis. Anti-Vaccinosis from Adored Beast can assist in removing associated vaccine side effects in your dog without removing any vaccine benefits. Anti-Vaccinosis is a smart first step in dealing with most chronic diseases and can unravel the path to healing ... often in as little as 48 hours!

You read my mind Maggie I’m doing this as we speak ! Have no problem traveling but conventional just turns to medication so time to turn to alternatives

I don't know that I would use it at this point as it may just muddle the waters---and agree w/Maggie about seeing a naturalist for a 2nd opinion.

Ok so we had our homepathic vet visit , we got some thuja and a prednisone alternative with all natural remedies ,

The vet didn’t notice anything remarkable with her or her behaviors just she is very dependent on human interaction, we have to go back to half a pred every second day and use the pred alternative at the same time , he says he expects symptoms to return but to observe them rather than panic and to contact him once they return so he can reevaluate to start the treatment

I got the feeling he was saying indirectly that she is reacting to our feelings etc when she is having an episode when we panic but it’s very hard to be neutral in those situations he said to try and get her off the steroids which I wholeheartedly agree with , so we will try this avenue and go with it and see what happens

Hi all , another quick update , Christmas was up and down for us but since then we seemed to have turned a corner ,

So basically the symptoms came back again 28th dec , went to vet who did blood work all organs ok , considering she is still on steroids that was brilliant news ,

Since then we have been weaning off her dose but did a couple of extra things ,

1. Completely cut chicken out of diet and now on high quality dry nuts

2. Started giving Lintbells Yucalm tablets

And it seemed we have turned a corner ! Steroids are down to a quarter of a tab every second day with a view to weaning off completely in a couple of weeks

Our new vet seems like stress is a factor so we said we would give it a shot along with some nutricalm aids ( collar and diffuser ) she’s like she’s back to herself again !

So please god say a prayer we can keep going and get completely off the steroids
