Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but I wanted to touch base with you.

Now most causes for anemia are not going to cause nausea (the source for both vomiting and appetite loss), instead this is more likely a side effect of her Prednisone. Its good she is on an antacid to counter its effects but this doesn't sound like its doing enough. So, it would be best to ring the local vet and request a stronger anti-nausea medication (ie Zofran, Cerenia, Metoclopramide) to use as well. That way we can reduce this for her and get her eating. As well, they can dispense appetite stimulants at the same time. Any delay and you could add in Milk of Magnesia (0.25tsp every 8012 hours) but again she sounds like she needs a stronger option here so we can keep treating the anemia but not hold back her appetite.

Kind regards,

Dr. B
