So you basically have four options:
1) 10 mg steroid....platelets rise
2) don't treat and watch....check platelets again
3) small increase in steroid....wait and see
4) try herbs....can take 2 weeks....make sure anemia does not get worse
How much experience does the holistic Vet have with ITP?
I wish you had an online cat-ITP-related group to join....not just for people....or dogs.
(I know you said ITP is rare in cats....which is a good thing....but not in this case.)
You and me both. It pains me to see his poor ears all splotchy and bright red while he just looks up at me with his sweet big eyes like what's wrong mama? I feel fine! Yes.. traditional meds and chinese meds can be fine. It will just be tough if I do raise the pred soon I'll wonder maybe the herbs are working? Or maybe it's only the prednisolone?!
Holistic vet doesn't have much experience but she thinks it can help as it has platelet properties and blood properties to heal some autoimmune things and ITP she thinks can help. Hes on half a dose right now she said in 2 weeks if not helping then can double it
