Thank you for your response.
I trust the vets that treat her. they are experienced.
We will start with Lupron ASAP, when I get the money for it.
We didn't want to give Lupron&Steroids at the same time, so that if
there is an improvment, we'd know if it's from the Lupron or the steroids.

Actually, the 3rd vet suspected ECE or EGE.
She does NOT have the classic symptoms for adrenal disease nor for EGE
or ECE. That's why we don't know exactly how to treat her. and
steroids is a treatment for 2-3 possible diseases.

She has no diarriah, no vomitting, no bold spots or aggressive
behavior. nothing.
"ONLY" weight lost (started 4-5 month ago, back then she was 650
grams) and what looks like an enlarged right adrenal (by ultra-sound,
as I said).
Also, she has blood and protein in her urine. tissue culture was normal.
