|Definately look into finding a Intregrative Vet as they will incorporate holistic, chinese medicine such as acupuncture, supplements, raw foods and several different avenues along with western medicine to address your dogs medical needs.
I would be worried also about long time prednisone use especially on such a young dog. Have you sought other opinions, any intestinal and stomach biopsies yet to confirm inflammatory bowel problems. You stated that the problem is immune mediated, so I assume that cbc's are being done every week if not every other week to make sure that her hemacrit and red blood cells are staying in check.
The one thing about the more holistic/intregrative Vets is that they look at the whole dog, not just at symptoms, does that make sense? By that I mean they address the dogs whole body, the dogs life style, foods, not just symptoms.
I hope you can get some help and your dog can be on the road to recovery soon.
