I am glad you chimed in on this. I could vaguely remember that someone had dealt with something like this before but I couldn't remember anymore about it even who it was.
Those search terms didn't quite work out.Just search Tuxedo in posts by me in this forum. You'll be able to tell which threads to read.
And if your vet wants to chat with mine, Stan is happy to. Just PM me.
Exactly - there REALLY is. At the time, Stan thought that there wasn't enough difference in the mechanism of action of steroids to make a difference and switch it up. But after calling around to the feline blood experts, he said - this is it, we gotta try it. And since it WORKED - and literally saved Tuxedo's life - it made the very strong impression that there is enough difference in the mechanism of action between different steroids that if one doesn't work, you try another, &etc.I am glad you chimed in on this.

I know with my own experience for something else that there is a difference in steroids. When there was a nationwide shortage of prednisolone Patches was put on dexamethesone for quite a while. His blood sugar started going up. The vet put him back on the pred and it came right back down.
