Thanks again for your advice and your quick reponse.

This week he has just been on flagyl and eating IVD and seems to be doing great and I've only given the budesonide once (and stopped after reading that you said it is 15 times stronger than pred!). I also decided to ask my vet for Sola's bloodwork that he just got 2 weeks ago (before he started on any medication). She told me his bloodwork came back as "normal" but I always like to see for myself. Not that I'm a vet of course!

But what she called "normal" results I would not consider normal. Which is why I think I'm going to stop the steroid all together.

There were high:
Creatinine = 2.4
A/G ratio = 1.1
MCH = 17.5

These were low:
RBC = 5.62
HGB = 9.2
HCT = 27.8
Globulin = 3.1
Absolute Neutrophil Seg = 2156

I don't really know what anything means except that the creatinine is a measure of the kidney function. His BUN was 27, which seems normal, right? What do you think of the other levels? Do you think he'll be okay on just flagyl and IVD?
