I am in utter tears right now. My 9 yr old Vizsla that we adopted in June was given steroids for a rash she developed. It wasn’t much of a rash. She had gone from being a city dog to a country dog. We had been treating it with Apple Cider Vinegar and some essential oils. Our vet told us that is dangerous and prescribed her steroids. Immediately she begin urinating everywhere and losing weight. Three weeks later she has diabetes. Two months later she is now blind from cataracts. And no one, not one person will tell me how and why she turned so quickly. She was an active happy dog.
