    Mor, for me, the side effects. Banks and Nitschke both had such bad side effects..... very high heart rates, sleep issues, peeing all over the house, obsecne burst of energy where we could not calm them down... and Banks more so, would get very aggressive. They also just cover the issue and not really fix anything - they are good for short term relief. Just my opinion.

    OMG speaking of weird steroid effects.. @2BullyMama Lola ATE ALL THE CAT'S FOOD when we went to work yesterday!!! I know that she has had increased hunger, she's ravaged the raw patties (which we added 50% to each meal to accommodate) twice daily. But she's never gone after Meep's food. Ben went home at lunch to let her out (since she may have increased peeing), and texted me asking whether I emptied the cat's dry food bowl. Lola ate every last kibblet of really crappy (purina weight loss management) cat kibble. I'm sure it has a ton of things I've been avoiding, like CHICKEN. No allergic reaction though! I was getting anxious because Ben asked me about the kibble and then no response for like 40 minutes. Now Meep has to eat her kibble on the dining room table (which we don't actually eat on, it's in the sunroom). Also, Lola took a huge deuce this morning.

    sidenote Meep is named because she meeps ALOT. meep! meep. Meep! MEEP!

    Aww poor baby. Glad the medications are working, and I hope she gets relief and feels better soon.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
