Hi, my 11 year old cat's been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease since about November of 2006 and has had persistent diarrhea since about October of 2006. He's gone from weighing over 20 pounds to about 8 pounds. He's been given prednisone, apo-metronidazole, and a cortizone shot all of which did not help control the diarrhea. The vet has now prescribed sulfasalazine, a quarter of a 500 mg pill once per day. I've read that this drug can be very toxic for cats but have also read that some vets use this medication frequently without negative results. I was wondering if anyone has given this drug to their cat and if there were any negative effects. Thanks.
