    As you all know, Emma has had Addisions since last June. She is on Florinef 2X a day, plus Pred every second day. I have been reading that Pred supresses the imune system. My vet is not in any way familure with Addisions. My question is, how much does the Pred supress her system? Could this be why we are having an imposible time controlling her ear infection?

    My vet had me giving milk thistle to my dog with the prednisone pills. Many suggest giving a probiotic to help the immune system.
