    Buprenorphine and IBD

    My cat is on budesonide for suspected ibd. Biopsy has been declined as as treatment is going to be the same the vet said. He has pain and I'm giving him buprenorphine. I cannot find any other posts of buprenorphine given to treat ibd pain. Is there anyone else needing this for their baby? Maybe...

    I understand what you're feeling. My boy has suspected ibd 3 biopsies indicate the normal finding of ibd or lymphoma. This began with pancreatitis last June and were now on the normal course of trial and error.The journey is horrible. The question of when/if is debilitating. It is said " better...

    IBD? journey Continues

    Yes matter of fact his level was on the low end of normal but been giving shot 1x week. I was supposed to give on Wed and couldn't get more till today.

    IBD? journey Continues

    I think I've tried everything. He's allergic to of all things rabbit duck venison plus 10 other things like wheat peas etc...But not chicken. So I make him the homemade chicken and liver diet recommended by the ibdkitty website.

    IBD? journey Continues

    Yes I'm hand feeding him. Wow my heart just sank. It's been 9 days on the budesonide but 2 on the recommended dose. Do you think that's alot of weight loss? I do but all Dr's said it's common but it still feels like I could scream. I just want him better

    IBD? journey Continues

    After contacting animalbiome they replied and recommended waiting until Max has stabilized. I did send off the sample for testing and should have results in another week or 2. We started budesonide last week. He had a bad reaction to the prednisalone. Now the vet doubled the dose this week. .5...

    Ibd ? Hiding

    I thank you for all the insights. So far the steroids and tylosin were a disaster sp that has left us with metro and not sure if it works. After removing all kibble doing a homemade diet, fingers crossed we are on the right track. I am feeding him 6-8 small meals since he is always hungry it...

    Ibd ? Hiding

    Really clever! Me I use a notebook going on 4 years and record similar notes. It's been invaluable. I noticed his voice has changed last 2 days and he sticks his tongue out frequently. Never did. Also he has like congestion sounds when breathing. After hearing about Cole, who looks just like...

    Ibd ? Hiding

    What a journey! I've done much of what you've done. I feel like Max has elements of both your babies. Now with the pancreatitis again I'm hesitant to do either biopsy. I really only want to do the animalbiome products but I'm concerned with him suffering while it's taking effect. I already sent...

    I will reach out to animalbiome again. His internist was the one that recommended. In my few interactions I haven't found them very helpful. Did you email or call?

    Ibd ? Hiding

    I think what you're saying makes total sense. Thank you. He has been so miserable off and on since original pancreatitus last June. He even looks different. Uncomfortable all the time. Of course my heart is bracing for the worst but still searching for answers. Hearing from you makes me hopeful...

    Ibd ? Hiding

    We did order the gut restore starter kit and did 1 dose now the pancreatitis so I feel like I should hold off till this resolves but will check with internist Tom. He hasn't lost but 1/2 lb in a year but we also switched to a homemade diet after finding he's allergic to 14 foods! But not...
