Common Questions and Answers about Budesonide for cats


7052683 tn?1392942395 I am about to just stop everything and let her just live her life with her favorite foods, no meds, and hope for the best . It is wearing us both out. All I want is her to be happy and not have to eat z/d and fight with her every day with meds. Am I a horrible mom????? Really?
1560663 tn?1298050127 are there any other brands that make low protein, digestive-friendly, foods for elderly cats? She is on canned only and I 'd like to treat her with a bit of variety in her diet. She was pretty happy with the ID for the last 2 months, but seems to be getting bored with it. It makes me happy that your kitties are doing better- yay Miralax!
Avatar f tn If your son is allergic, you should know that cats are a major factor for allergic/asthmatic children. Hope this response helps.
Avatar m tn Yes there is, it's a human supplement but safe for cats. Comes in powder form, needs to be mixed with some water to make a gruel than give by dropper. Called slippery elm bark, I buy the NOW brand from iherb.
Avatar f tn So we will see how that goes. She was tested earlier in the year for the basic allergies like to cats, dogs, eggs etc and they all came back negative. Maybe I will have her tested again.
Avatar n tn About 12 weeks ago I caught bronchitis, then wildfires broke out near my home that made the air unhealthy for about 2 weeks. This provoked a severe asthma attack -- for three weeks. Treatment proceeded thus: 1. 1 week Medrol plus Symbicort (60 mg). Little effect - my lung function was at 74%. 2. 10 -day course of .875 MG Augmentin with pulmicort + albuterol nebulizer treatments, and Nasonex. Some improvement -- lung function up to 81%. 3.
Avatar m tn The nasal sprays never worked for me nor the emergency inhalers. Budesonide keeps the polyps down and this med. has been a life saver! Also the allergy serum has been a life saver! With out these three meds my sinus's swell up so much that I can't talk and I get a severe head ache. I was suddenly allergic to dust mites, mold, yeast,dogs and pollen- two years after my polyps were removed. I've had only one head ache in six months due to not taking the Budesonide for a few days.
541150 tn?1306037443 These include prednisone (the treatment of choice in many cases), some antibiotics, and antiemetics (drugs that suppress vomiting). A newer drug, budesonide (Entocort®) is currently being investigated for treatment of IBD in cats. Although it is a corticosteroid drug like prednisone, it is metabolized differently and may reduce the potential for long-term side effects that can be associated with corticosteroids.
Avatar m tn 5mg twice daily for a week, 5mg once daily for a week, then 2.5mg once daily for a week, 2.5mg every other day for a week, and so on until we were back down to the 1.25mg every other day. The prednisone did not seem effective, so we switched to prednisolone. In any case, for about 2 months Hudson was on a very high dosage of these anti-inflammatories. He developed diabetes and pancreatitis and had to be hospitalized for 10 days!
Avatar f tn However, because of the blood I would also vet check and do blood tests if necessary to check for other things. Watch for cleaners you are using around the house, cats walk around and clean them so they do ingest many more chemicals than us.
Avatar f tn That will do it for sure--no defense --very scarey for a cat. How many cats do you have and did you have her first and add the rest one at a time? Sometimes all you can do is DRUGS!!!1 That's right Elevil or Prozac make a big difference . But you have to pill them everyday.. It is such a shame she has to live her life afraid of other cats. Your post above makes perfect sense. Asthma is not in play, although it could become a problem now that her respiratory airwaves have been compromised.
Avatar m tn What other doctor (specialty) is left to consult? Thank you in advance for your consideration, and I apologize for the length of this post. I also apologize for any grammatical and/or syntactic errors, but English will never be my first language -although it is my field of studies!!
Avatar n tn Yesterday her blood work came back from Monday and everything was fine. After the x-rays the vet did a CBC to check for infection and a high white blood cell count. She said she saw 3 small suspicious areas on the x-rays too in her chest but not in her lungs. Her heart is also normal. She is on the Methamazole cream that goes on her ears twice a day...alternating ears for hyperthyroidism. As I said her kidney, liver, and thyroid numbers were all normal.
Avatar f tn I am writing this down. Tell do cats who stop eating ever start eating again? I've never had this problem. Last week I nearly lost one of my dogs to very bad gastritis. I'm barely sleeping and eating - sorry if I'm rambling but it's just been a two week nightmare. And is it ok for her to get an appetite stimulant? The first time she was so hungry she cried but could not eat, the second time was in the hospital and it didn't make her eat at all.
Avatar m tn If an unfortunate side effect should happen to you, well, I am sorry. I am not charging you for this, you are not paying me for it, so don’t sue me. It’s a responsibility that you have to assume. If you expect a risk-free life, with massive compensation should things don’t work out, then don't try this. So, why is this book manuscript free? The physician who reviewed it said, “The materials cost less than $5.
Avatar m tn It doesn't seem to make any difference if there are cats or dogs around. Budesonide is a glucocorticoid steroid for the treatment of asthma, non-infectious rhinitis, etc. It comes either in a nasal spray or pills. It is not supposed to have the side effects of Medrol. I'm going to set up another appointment with the ENT doc. to ask him about this. I'll let you know the results.
Avatar n tn he can tell 2 days away if the weather is going to dramatically change - and here in texas that happens a lot. trust me, its awful for him. once the weather settles down, he's back to normal. only the barometric change does anything to him. you're not alone in this, and nothing - not any medication on the market, rx or otherwise, puts a dent in his reaction.
Avatar n tn I may get a burst of sharp pains in my temples usually one side, it can happen for a few seconds and repeat for a minute or so. I may get a pain in my knee and then minutes later in my finger, or shoulder or wherever it wants to be. The thing is I am a mental health nurse and keep thinking am I going mad. My partner is sympathetic but gets a bit tired of me mentioning pains 5 or 6 times a night. I'm tired all the time and don't know where to turn.
Avatar n tn I have this problem too, and I have found minor relief using something I also use for my pollen allergies - budesonide inhaler. It's a cortisol-like steroid, and this problem might also be related to the adrenal gland. I will try multivitamins, although I do take these once every 2-3 days I still sometimes suffer from mild SOB/yawning. Oh wow I also get a lot of aspartame, I bet it's dangerous!!
