Default Re: Autoimmune disorder in cats - advice needed!

i wonder if the haze has anything to do with coco's condition?

the skin on her neck has crusted.. her ears have a yeast infection inside.. the outside of her ears have a raw itchy crust. her gums are swollen and some of her teeth have fallen out.

my very nice vet prescribed antibiotics and steroids twice. but she doesn't want to keep doing this because this only provides symptomatic relief and cannot cure the problem. in fact while suppressing uncomfortable symptoms, these medicines may actually further weaken the immune system. she has informed me that the disorder will not go away and can only be maintained.

there must be another course of action for coco!! she is already cranky to begin with..
