My 6 year old golden retriever has been diagnosed with immune mediated hemolytic anemia. She has been on predisone for 2 months but as soon as I start decreasing the dose her red blood count goes down. Any suggestions to help support her naturally? She does take transfer factor, is raw fed and a few other vitamins along with alfalfa and kelp.

Sorry for the slow reply.
This is a complex disease with many individual factors to consider. Optimal diet, avoiding *any* drugs or environmental toxins, proper supplementation (there are many useful supplements which would be best prescribed by a holistic vet) will help. Constitutional homeopathic prescribing however is the best way, by far, to facilitate weaning of the pred. Go to [url]http://www.theavh.org[/url] for a referral.
