Hi everyone, it's mes Carmine.
Yesterday was this big game called the Super Bowl. The Mom doesn't usually watch the Super Bowl, but hers did this year cause the Broncos were playing....and theys won! Mes didn't have to go hide my orange furs in embarrassment again like mes did two years ago, MOL!! Mes is proud to be orange this year!
Mes has not been eating well for about a week nows. Sometimes mes just picks out my prescription a/d noms and leaves the other noms the Mom mixes it with, MOL. A few times, mes has even turned my nose up at all the noms. The Mom has to open lots of cans sometimes to find something mes will eat. Mes ate pretty well yesterday the Mom says, so hers hopes mes will start to eat better nows again.
The Mom here: Don't worry, Carmine IS eating. He just isn't eating as much as I'd like him to. When we went from 10mg to 7.5mg of Prednisolone, Carmine didn't eat well for 1-2 weeks, so I'm guessing that the same is holding true now that we've gone down to 5mg of Pred. His body seems to need some time to adjust to the medication decreases.
Like he said, Carmine ate well on Sunday, so hopefully we are on the upswing again. If he continues to not eat as well as he should, I will definitely be calling his vet, though.
