Subject: [ferrethealth] CORRECTION Re: Initial prednisone dosage for insulinoma

Hi, Sukie, and everyone else,

That should have read 5mg/5ml. Thank you, Sukie, for catching the

I've received a number of responses to my original post all suggesting
the starting dosage should be considerably smaller that what the vet
recommended even with the correct concentration. 0.1mg is pretty normal
with some suggesting even half of that. Nobody seems to think 2mg a day
of pediapred (prednisolone) is correct, which confirms my expectations
and what the trusted vet says.

Chin Soon now has an appointment with the vet more than three hours away
for Tuesday. I'll maintain her on 0.1ml until then unless someone
thinks even that much is a bad idea.

Thanks to everyone who replied.

All the best,
Caity and the terrific trio
(Ella, Zephyr and Chin Soon)
