5mg a day was too much and he was having bad side effects, extreme lethargy, he stopped eating,and drinking and his diarrhea actually got worse. Half a pill ever other day was not enough his stool was normal the first day then back to diarrhea the second. Half a pill mg a day seems to be the formula that works for him. He tolerates it well,and his stool remains normal. Mischief is much more active and healthy now,and is actually gaining weight. I am very pleased. Like I said I think it saved his life. Also the drug is very inexpensive $10 bucks a month
Yeah, no you’re not. Yes, but you did good. (2:07?) half is good. So we’re going to give her some cortizone. I’m going to give her a shot of dexamethasone. I’m going to give it under the skin. And that will really help with it. We’re going to send some prednisone pills home– And over the next day or 2. And then we’ll – and then what you’re going to do at home is just check out new– Any new changes of food, any new biscuits she had, any new chew toys, chew chew treats. And see if anything’s changed. See if there’s beef or wheat.
Dr. Brandon Brooks, DVM - "Many (if not most) Over The Counter (OTC) or non-prescription flea control products are very toxic to cats and kittens- especially the ones only approved for use in dogs. Many people mistakenly buy these for their pet (it's not always their fault, the companies that make them want you to buy it, they don't really care about the dangers involved) so it pays to be extra careful when buying flea control products." Our animals are sicker than ever. Veterinarians have never seen such an increase in the rate of liver disease, nervous system disorders, cancers, diabetes, renal failure and other diseases. Our animals are being routinely poisoned with pet food and pet medicine. Popular anti-flea and anti-tick medications are extremely toxic to the liver. According to Dr. Brooks, even though the cat or kitten does not have the OTC flea control product directly applied to it, the cat or kitten may still become ill through indirect exposure if it is applied to a dog in the household, household furnishings, bedding, etc.. Also, many OTC dog flea control products are not only toxic to cats, but dogs as well.
