Prednisolone for cats cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Prednisolone for cats cancer


Avatar n tn She was on Prednisolone but it eventually got to the point it didn't help. We tried a diet of Science Diet AD for a while but she is a picky eater and eventually refused to eat it. Is there a diet you recommend trying? Should I try one of the alternative protein diets like duck and potato,rabbit etc? Thank you again.
6255435 tn?1379866031 Prednisone should work as well as prednisolone in your boxer. Prednisolone is more important in cats. The dose of Artemisinin is 200mg daily for a boxer sized dog. We use Allergy research or NutriCology brands at my practice. If your dog is currently taking more than 200mg and there are no side effects than continue with the higher dose. If he is taking less than gradually increase to the 200mg dose. There are many other additional holistic options to consider.
Avatar n tn Doxycycline is one of them as well as azithromycin. Also, prednisolone is usually prescribed for cats with cancer to help reduce the inflammation the tumor causes. You can read about the antibiotic studies on google. Here is one study: Very interesting! As a side note, if you use Doxy, do not use cod liver oil or any Vit A supplements as this can increase the risk for severe reactions.
72351 tn?1281996142 I have 4 cats ages 3 and 4 years old. 8 months ago, one came down with inflamed gums/tongue and the rest soon followed. The first one has never been outdoors. All 4 of the cats mothers were tested for FIV shortly after giving birth to them when I went to have them spayed, and the tests returned negative. I tried using Amoxicillan to no avail on them. I wrote in to you and you suggested to try Clindamycin or another drug. I took two of them into the vet to get the Clindamycin.
Avatar n tn She should be put on Prednisolone in a tapering dose schedule, and Atopica (immune-modulator for food and other allergies) simultaneously. Atopica takes one month to kick in. She may need Atopica long term to prevent recurrence. 8. She should be concurrently treated with oral antibiotics and either an oral anti-fungal medication, or medicated anti-fungal shampoo. She may need these medications for one month or more. 9.
Avatar m tn prednisone is a steroid as you know, it is used to reduce inflammation and is often used to treat tumors, but it does have its side effects too. a better choice for cats is PREDNISOLONE I will send you some info on that the last line states "data indicates oral prednisolone is a superior choice for cats" this too is a steroid and has side effects....diabetes being one.
11903618 tn?1422231266 Our vet says its in too dangerous a place for surgery and that we can continue with the prednisolone and she may have a few months or we can try chemo which could give her up to a year. But they cant tell if theres cancer anywhere else. Bella is about 7, and on the pred she's behaving like a perfectly healthy cat. Does anyone have any experience with this type of cancer? We are devastated with the news and want to make the best decision for our cat.
Avatar n tn Hi Sadie, I really feel for you and Sadie. I had a beloved 16 year old cat that had intestinal lymphoma. My cat, too, displayed no symptoms until I took him to the Vet, and she felt a mass. I eventually got him to a specialist Vet in Internal Medicine. Yes, it will take an ultrasound and biopsy to diagnose it. My kitty's lymphoma was widespread, but , considering his age, he did fine for a while on a treatment plan. How old is Sadie?
Avatar n tn If your cat has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in the past there is always a possibility that it has spread to the nose. This type of cancer has an affinity for mucous membranes, like the lining of the nostrils. A small punch biopsy would probably yield the best diagnosis since it is a full thickness biopy, wheras a fine needle aspirate, or a smear would only show surface cells. Did your vet do a test for Hemobartonella (cat scratch fever)?
Avatar f tn our hearts and prayers go out to you, keep us updated okay♥ there is a group for lymphoma diagnosed cats..I know thats different circumstances than mammary cancer but.maybe they can give you more insight into the chemo treatments and outcomes/side effects etc.
Avatar f tn , that boosts the animal's appetite and almost gives the appearance of a miracle drug because the animal can seem almost their old self within about 24 hours of receiving an injection. Dogs don't tolerate steroid treatments nearly as well as cats do, though. While cats need larger doses of steroids than dogs do to achieve the desired effect, they are also much less likely to develop problems from their use.
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 f tn Except Interferon and cortisone! If interferon for cats is anything like what it is for humans I won't put her through that. It is awful stuff and she would never be the same again after having it. Life after treatment haas to be worth living. I could try changing her diet. At least that won't make her sicker. She usually has fresh tuna, rabbit, or mackerel for dinner and packaged food for breakfast in addition to the usual biscuits.
Avatar m tn It is ground and formulated to be nutrient and calorie dense. It is often recommended by vets for developing kittens or for older cats with eating issues. Even if he only eats a small amount, it will provide him with more calories and nutrients than the same amount of other canned food. It generally isn't sold in grocery stores but you should be able to find it at a pet supply store.
874521 tn?1424120397 After that I will continue to feed him the raw diet unless he proves to me that this diet is making him sick, which he hasn't been able to prove it yet. He gave me a prescription for prednisolone for my cat's IBD because this Hill's l/d is making his colon sick again. Imagine that!!! Oh, the vet also took an ACTH stimulation test to see why Abby gets so sick so frequently. You know, they also found helicobacter in his stomach, and that bacteria was causing him to have Gastritis.
Avatar n tn One more link, it has a lot of good info too for cats and costipation.
Avatar m tn It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
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 f tn suggestions, have you been checked for celiacs? By the way she is on zyrtec for hers.
530191 tn?1214166411 This is the use of Plaquenil, a drug originally used for malaria. In a recent trial 83% improved or cleared completely when used for three months or more. ref: Hope you are better informed about your condition and find it useful.
Avatar n tn perhaps you should consider switching doctors -- just for fresh insight. Maybe they can list for you all the causes for recurring fever (are her hormones ebbing and flowing on a regular basis, even for her age?) that also cause joint pain. And then the most common causes for each seperately...AND then tell you how they have ruled them out -- are there conclusive tests...was she tested specifically for it, etc.? Again, I'm sorry I can't help.
Avatar n tn its kind of like if your eye were to twitch, same feeling, the difference with me is, if I bend down, and get back up, my head has this excruciating pain, I have to hold my head and close my eyes, it only last for just under a minute, I havent seen any doctors for this, but I'm thinking maybe I should. Is anyone else getting this?
766586 tn?1284386798 ) Reading back, I wonder if losing my dad a few months ago had anything to do with my miscarriage, it was very stressful going through that cycle of ivf as I was often breaking down in tears and still now miss my dad so much, he died unexpectantly thought it was gallstones and turned out to be pancreatic cancer, had 10 days to live and only 65.Anyway we put the ivf off for a month but went ahead in april , miscarried at 6 weeks.
Avatar m tn He's been on it for five days now and is still pretty out of it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most of the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly. He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I have been using it for about 3-4 weeks now and the little bumps on my penis head have gone away but now i have noticed an itchy bump on the side of my penis which is a bit bigger.. also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)... ...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse.
Avatar n tn Hi - I've been having difficulty breathing for at least the last 9-10 years...and it's a daily thing. I am 31 years old, am healthy (exercise almost daily, eat healthily, am not overweight, do not smoke, and only drink socially), and yet I always feel like my breathing is extremely laboured. I constantly yawn to try to catch a satisfying breath.
