I guess I should have posted what we are going to do for now:
Inj Convenia 48mg SQ
Metacam 10ml bottle - give 6kg dose SID PO x 5 days then titrate dose to lowest effective thereafter. Monitor closely for GI upset and ensure Keiko is eating and drinking well when medicating.
Omega 3 FA supplementation pending owner's decision on diet change
Otizole (polymixin, pred, miconazole) to apply topically BID pending results
I don't want to change his diet yet...the last time I wanted to switch him (to a raw fed diet) it was too much shock to his system and he reacted very poorly to it. He's had pancreatitis twice (within the span of 10 years) so I'm quite paranoid about any sort of diet changes.
We're going to try the omega-3 FA supplementation first (double dosage)...is that similar to the Cytel-M? That link mentioned it was similar to omega-3 fatty acids but I'm totally medically/vet challenged so all the terminology and medical lingo goes over my head. lol
