Django saga continues
Well, we have been dealing with a bloody bottom and stool the entire month of May. We thought his colitis flared up again. Working with the vet, increased his pred, some good days, some bad days. We went to the vet for his monthly shot and I told the vet his rectum looked swollen over the past 2 days. He did a rectal exam and sure enough, polyps. I guess it's common after a bout of colitis, of course, my dog will get all side affects from anything!
He is scheduled to have his teeth cleaned next month so we are adding this to the list of things to take care of. It's not life threatening right now or could even be but it will continue to get larger and will bleed. Not a good thing. We decided to also remove the cyst that has continued to be a problem at the same time. Of course, nothing will be done if his blood work doesn't come back perfect.
At least we can cut back on the prednisone now from 2x a day to once every 3rd or 4th day. I feel so bad for him, of course, he never complains. He's just such a trooper. Hopefully better days will be ahead of us.
