All our dogs have the run of the house but initially we left Kizzie in the kitchen to sleep, just in case any disagreements broke out between our other dogs. Within the week she was upstairs hogging the bed every night!
As she was still anaemic we had to take her for regular blood tests to see if she was getting better & hopefully get her off the steroids eventually. As it was, this choice was made for us as the steroids started to damage her digestive tract & she became very ill. Fortunately her red blood count continued to rise without the steroids & we thought we were out of the woods.
One night she began scratching constantly & I could smell blood. On turning the light on she had scratched herself raw. We took her to the vets who was at a loss to what was wrong with her. He gave us steroid cream & medicated shampoo, but her back became inflamed & she lost most of her hair over the next month. Eventually after many medicated baths the inflammation went but she was totally bald.
