Neighsayer Posted July 6, 2013 Share Posted July 6, 2013 (edited) How long before you saw an improvement? How long did your dog stay on pred? Mickey lost six nails in less than a month. He is now losing the last remaining nail on one front foot, and a second on the other front. I started with the Grassmere protocol ( tetracycline and niacinimide), but now I'm trying the protocol from Care of the Racing Greyhound. It suggests staying on pred, at a low dose, for two years. Have you kept a dog on it for that long? I'm continuing the fish oil, vitamin E, niacinimide, and have added goldenseal. Also, pain meds as needed. I have not been able to take Mickey anywhere because of fear that someone, person or dog, will step on his feet. No more therapy visits, and I have to take others to meet and greets. I feel so bad, because he still wants to go! How long does this go on? Edited July 6, 2013 by Neighsayer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
