Once again pax went through another pancreatitis flare up. they are becoming much too frequent for us to continue the same treatment plan. so my vet wants to trial low dose steroids to try and prevent any further flare ups with its anti-inflammatory properties.
of course steroids come at a cost. there can be side effects - hopefully none too severe! but pax is closing in on approximately 18 years old. so i have to consider that he needs to be as comfortable as possible and these flare ups are painful and stressful for him. if i can help prevent them and give him pain-free elderly years, i will be happy.
