weight and heart worm meds
Django has been on revolution since he was a puppy. It's all in one, heartworm and flea/tic but since we had to up his dose of prednisone he's put on 1 pound in 6 months which for him is alot. We are slowly taken him off the daily pred. with vet supervision (we are now down to once every 3 weeks or so) and our goal is to get his weight down from 11.7 to 10.5 if possible. With the reduction in pred, his appetite has gone back to almost normal and his little body seems to slowly take its original shape. For a while there he looked like a line backer, real wide thru the body. my questions is this: his revolution is for dogs up to 10 lbs. next size up is 11-20lbs. i hate the thought of overmedicating him and giving him a bigger dose just for a few months. His weight gain is from the meds not from over eating.
do you think we are okay keeping with the 10lb revolution? He's been checked for heartworm and all is good, he's always getting poked at the vet so his bloodwork is always current. He's not a dog that rolls in around in stuff while on our walks. any thoughts?
