Its been over a year and shes still doing ok. Crazy what a new diet can do for dogs. Shes sure old but she powers through anything that happens to her over and over again. Right now we feed her a mixed diet of things. No matter what we try she cant eat meat because her pancreas just cannot handle it. So she gets what she needs with cottage cheese, yogurt, steel oats, green veggies, few eggs whites, and random veggie based treats through the day. We add a calcium supplement, vitamin, and some potassium every day to make sure she gets what a dog her size needs. We have to portion it though because she would eat for hours if not.
We also add some spirulina everyday, a sam-e suppliment, and milk thistle here and there. She is down to around 3.1-3.2 mg of prednisone a day because any lower and her body was not producing enough and she was just not responding. Its such a low does we do not see any side effects so its good for now. She seems to be doing fine enjoying the last bit of her life so Im glad it all worked out this way. When she goes she goes.
Just wanted to update this incase someday someone needs information or anything, because I have spent hours upon hours reading and learning on the fly because truthfully the vets we talk to are just not smart enough to know many answers. Which is terrible to say but true. Thanks for the help to anyone who helped
