My Maggie is now on a relatively low number of 6 types of daily meds, some twice a day. Some meds we add in as symptoms come up. Her highest was 12 meds a day. My biggest concern has been possible drug interactions -- I am fortunate in that a vet who works in my vet's clinic is very, very knowledgeable about medications and how they interact. Also, I do on-line research on every drug that is prescribed for Maggie and, if I find anything that I find disturbing, particularly in terms of side effects, I discuss it with my vet. He is very patient with me.
I think the bottom line is whether or not you trust your vet. My vet frequently consults with Maggie's internal med specialist and I appreciate that. Another thing I like about my vet is that he is open to the use of alternative therapies -- when I wanted to try Leaks No More instead of Pro-in for incontinence, I brought him all the literature I could find, he researched it himself and we decided together that it was worth a try. It ended up being much more effective than the Pro-In.
I hope this helps --

This is so saddening, that the furbabies are sick. I don't know if you guys tried this, but I know that my vet in Israel is doing acupuncture treatments on certain dogs with chronic illnesses and from the word of it, it's REALLY helpful, and in the case of a school friend's Maltese, it cured him.
