No, i honestly havnt (and i work in a clinic). I saw some that could loose a few pounds, but wernt "fat". Now, toys on the other hand...
Yes he has been tested for everything under the sun. He has some kind of autoimmune problem, but they don't know what exactly it is. We keep him on the lowest dose of prednisone possible to keep him comfortable. We have 5mg tablets and just watch him closely and deal them out as needed. Right now he is averaging about 5mg every other day, but it fluctuates and sometimes he needs 10mg a day to be able to get up and down and walk around without pain. Not an ideal plan by any means, but since every test he has comes back negative, there doesn't seem to be any other way. And as long as he is getting the correct dose of the steroid he is happy and seemingly healthy.Have you had his tested for thyroid disease? It can be previlant in standards.
I'm not sure if he was specifically tested for Addison's or not, he did have tons of blood tests which all came back normal. After doing tons and tons of tests and discovering that prednisone seemed to be the only thing that helped his symptoms we decided with our vet that even if we did a bunch more tests and finally came to a diagnosis, the treatment for that diagnosis would more than likely be longterm steroids we decided to stop trying to find the exact cause and focus on making him feel better. It makes me nervous to have him on them for so long, but his quality of life just became the most important thing for us. Especially since some of the tests they were holding off on would be getting very invasive or require him to go off the steroid for accurate results and that would mean making him live in pain. We just can't bare to do that to him.Im sure they have, but as he is a poodle has he been tested for Addisons Dz?
