I am so sorry about kelso having a major setback, but from reading this, seems he is getting back to normal.
The problem with fighting a disease like this is one med can screw up another med. The pred is necessary to keep the immune system subdued to have it quit killing the good blood cells. But, because the pred kills the immune system, it also makes it so easy for infections to spread very quickly and take a long time healing.
I looked up my girls vet records and she was on Doxy for about 3 months, then I realized we switched to Amoxi for the remaining months(about 2 or 3)until her prednisone had been completely eliminated and all her counts were back to normal. She initially had a temp of 104 when first diagnosed with AIHA, but it seemed to stay down after that.
I think alot of the reason she bounced back so fast was she was only 5 1/2 months old, so I think she was able to bounce back from the setbacks a bit quicker.
Setbacks happen and although terrifying, you are doing all you can do for Kelso. He is a fighter and I think that is so important also, they HAVE to fight to stay alive during this long involved disease. I also congratulate you and your husband that you are noticing things that many would just "wait and watch" and that can prove fatal. You see the little things that concern you and act on them, Kelso has his life to thank for your observations and loving care.
Will keep checking back many times a day. I have pm'd you my phone number in case you just need to talk with someone who has been through this shit.

Everything is going pretty good. Doing the water therapy stuff for the elbow, he takes his meds like a champ. He really is a good patient, the vet techs commented on that smile He was patient with me when I was half awake getting his forelimbs in the tub at 515 this morning crazy

Hollysmom I agree they have to be a fighter, I do not think he has really felt good since September but he keeps on pushing.

I walked him a few houses down and back today. He liked that. I think Allie is kindof afriad of the big saucer on his head

That is interesting about the doxy/amox - thank you very much for looking it up. I appreciate your thoughts v much and the fact that your girl made it through keeps me positive!

The pain med is tramadol, no NSAIDS. smile

I thought about the clinda thing in people, something on my list to ask the vet - we have an appt thursday morning.

thanks again, and again!

Steph,

I am glad to hear Kelso is doing well at home. Give the big guy a hug from all of us and tell him if he starts feeling poorly again he should let his mom and dad know sooner.
