The State of the Shepherd

Uschi’s on Prednisone for a bit to help with the allergy inflammation and it is truly bizarre. She has a lot of the normal side effects, like increased drinking and urination. But for the most part, she’s just been sleepy. My running theory on this is that perhaps she hasn’t been sleeping well because of the itchiness and now she has some relief. Honestly, though, I have no idea.

In any case, she definitely seems to be doing better. The inflammation isn’t gone, but does seem to be steadily clearing up as far as I can tell. Her new vet will be stopping by later this month to check in and reassess so we’ll know more then.

For now, I’m happy to finally have some concrete improvement with these allergies. I’m sure Uschi feels the same.

Speak your piece!
