I ended up not ordering on friday, for the same reason.It is this pharmacy by the way: http://www.roadrunnerpharmacy.com/
Tux's regular vet is not totally opposed to the Budenoside, as a matter of fact we were cosidering it back in May, but he is talking to two specialists in LA now, that both seem to prefer the cyclosporine, based on Tux's history and the side effects he has experienced. They are still discussing it though, should hear something back on Monday or Tuesday.I have him now at one single dose of Pred, in the AM (5 mg.), and see if we can keep it that way til he is better.His stools are still on the softer side and he has a hard time putting on weight, even with 4 to 5 meals a day.
I started him on the Honest Kitchen Preference today, so that I can add fresh meat and fish and don't worry about balancing meals.He has been on a good kibble, Horizon Amicus, since he got sick the first time, alternated with home cooked meals, but I want to see if eliminating kibble all along makes it easier on his digestive system.
