21st February - Back at the Vets

Phoebe seemed fairly stable today, she had certainly not deteriated which was a good sign. We were back at the vets where Phoebe was given another steroid of injection. The vet also explained that the best course of action would be to give Phoebe high dosages of steroids to suppress her immune system, this treatment would be reduced if her body respnds well to it. However the treatment was expected to last from 2-3 months or the rest of her life. The vet also said that although there was a chance she could survive this, there was also a chance she would not.
The vet gave me enough prednisolone (steroid) to last Phoebe another five days (5mg tablets - 3 to be taken in the morning and 2 in the afternoon). We booked another appointment for the following Monday.
I took Phoebe home and treated her like royalty.
