Incidentally it was from this site I found out about it, I was at the point of having her put to sleep she was so bad and she had 2 happy years after that.
Dana also has 5 cm fistula and a small maybe 1 cm or less on the other side of her butt. I'm also at the point of asking myself if its the right thing to do to keep her here if this disease won't respond to anything.
the prednisolone is also to keep her atopic skin disorder in check, which causes red skin infections she is one 5 mg now which was way higher before but she had so many bad side effects, so now only 5 mg, somehow i think the fistula has something to do with the skin condition or the other way around, and so does my vet. He asked me to think ''does she has fistula(s) because she's allergic, or does she have allergies because she has fistula''
How strange that my vet never brought those (meds) up, i am going to pick up dana's medication next week, so i can ask if those might work for her! i'm really happy to see if this might work
what did you do to keep your dog from licking there, dana seems to make the fistula worse by licking at it especially at night.
