Anyone have a dog with Lupus? And what medications worked?
My dog BABY has Lupus and was diagnosed in November of 2015. We have used many medications to try and keep her Lupus in remission, however, no safe combination has been able to do that. She has been on at one time or another.....Prednisone, Methylprednisolone, Atopica, Azathioprine, Mycophenolate, Pentoxifylline and none of them will keep her Lupus oral lesions and ulcers in remission. The Lupus lesions and ulcers on her feet and rear legs are OK but the oral lesions (soft palate, gums, and inner lip tissue) will not stay in remission or even go into full remission even on high dose steroids.
If someone has tried other medications that have helped Lupus, please let me know so that I can discuss with Derm. Dr.
We are running out of time as she has been on medication since last November
