Getting Wags pointed in the right direction

This morning his PCV was 33. Down from 35 last week, which was down from the previous weeks' 37. Damn!!

The vet ordered azathioprine (Imuran), an additional immunosuppressant to use in tandem with the Prednisone for a few weeks. The azathioprine can take some weeks to show results, according to the veterinary sites I've been reading. I just hope Wags is NOT one of the approximately 10% of dogs who cannot tolerate this new weapon.

Poor pup...
