Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, I can help you with your question today.
Does Smoke have a good appetite?
Does he have any vomiting or diarrhea?
Can you elaborate a bit? Which problem? How often? etc
Other than blood testing for allergies and general health profiles, what treatments has your vet already tried? Any medications? Diet changes?
I need more details from you. I can't give new suggestions if I don't know what you have already tried.
OK, well ideally we would get intestinal biopsies to get a diagnosis. This can be done surgically or some limited samples may be taken with an endoscope. If you do not want to do further testing, we can do some empirical treatment with vitamin B12 injections, Cerenia orally (an anti-vomit, anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory medication) and restart the steroid at a high dose.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek. Here is my website if you need to reach me again: http://www.justanswer.com/veterinary/expert-drsusanfriend/

You're very welcome. Poor guy.
