Guest lorbug Posted July 31, 2008 Share Posted July 31, 2008 For the past two months my husband and I have been tirelessly trying to get a diagnosis for our sick greyhound, Tabora. We did a whole host of tests with our regular vet and no diagnosis. They referred us to an internal medicine specialist at Cornell University who did more tests and even exploratory surgery. They took biopsies of many of her organs and diagnosed her today with immune mediated vasculitis. She was started on a regime of prednisone today. Tabora is on a high dose, which will be tapered based on her response to the tapering. I am wondering if anyone has a grey that has been diagnosed with immune mediated vasculitis??? If so, what has been your grey's response to treatment?? This has been such a long and emotional process, we are happy to have a diagnosis and a dog that finally wants to eat and that does not have a constant temperature....but we are concerned with long term side effects of steroids and if anyone on this site has experience with this disease we would appreciate hearing about it.
