Well after 2 weeks on dexamethasone, Molly was back to her old self. All of her blood tests came back normal (including the CAE-phew). We(the vet and I) decided to see how Molly did without the dexamethasone. He said it would be about three days before it was out of her system. Well, it didn't take that long, the next morning Molly was going into her "trance"state again and screaming. I immediately gave her a shot, and within a few hours, she was better. So I kept her on the dexamethasone again for another 10 days, and tried her off of it again. She did great without it for a little over a week. Then two days ago-the symptoms returned. I gave her another shot, and again she was better within a few hours. Now he is thinking that this may be a pain reaction, and suggested 1/2 of an adult aspirin every other day. I will try that today. Do any of you have any thoughts on this behavior. I know I have asked you before, but she seems to have everyone baffled. Please keep her in your thoughts. I feel so sorry for her.
