cutbacks

A couple of weeks ago, I accidentally forgot to give Buster his morning Prozac. I didn’t realize this until the next day (his pills are in a pill case that has the days of the week on it). Normally, if something like this would happen in the past, we would have seen a change in his behavior, but I did not this time. So, it got me to thinking that perhaps I could finally cut back on his medication.

I reduced his dosage by a third and he’s been doing well with it. I haven’t noticed any changes. I’m going to keep him at this dosage for at least a couple of months before I try reducing it further, but I’m pretty happy we got this far with it. Plus, his liver enzymes have been up the last couple of times he’s had them checked, so this should help those numbers, too (as Prozac has an effect on the liver).
