Anabolic steroids increase the production of red blood cells, which increases the amount of circulating oxygen and promotes tissue growth. Testosterone, made by the testes, is a naturally-occurring anabolic steroid. Synthetic anabolic steroids are similar to testosterone, but they don’t have as many masculinizing effects. Anabolic steroids are used to treat chronic, non-regenerative anemia in pets. They also are used to increase muscle mass, improve body weight and condition in older dogs and restore weight and body condition in animals after surgery or debilitating disease.
If the ZD is helping then, stick with that. You said you have tried everything…? I know this sounds stupid, but is your baby off chicken and corn?
Chicken and turkey are considered “hot” foods in Chinese medicine. If you are giving your baby chickin treats they can cause this problem.
Do you give your baby a chew toy or a marrow bone? Sometimes they need to get anxiety out and if they don’t have anything, they chew on themselves.
There’s a web site, I love called http://
maybe they can help.
But, yes, get rid of the Apequel
Not really sure if there is a connection here but I had two separate dogs of two separate breeds get cortisone shots for the disks in their backs, now the 1st dog (mini schnauzer) was fine for over a year after, until he started having seizures. The vet then gave him another shot for the swelling in the brain and he passed away a little less than 2 wks later. Now about a week ago my 2nd dog (American bulldog/pitbull mix) she is 13 yrs old and I noticed her having difficulty with her back legs. The vet also said it was her disks and gave her a shot and a prescription for methocarbamol. Then a week later she has a stroke. Please tell me if there seems to be a connection here. He also gave her another shot for the swelling in her brain after the stroke. I would really like to know if I am making a mistake going to this guy.
