Has anyone tried the synthetic steroid for IBD?

There is synthetic steroid treatment available for treatment of inflammatory bowel disease that doesn't have the side effects of real steroids. Is anyone familiar with it?

Mervyn,

He is having episodes, daily, where he will whine in pain, chew on himself, on his lower region, then throw up. He has had almost every test and tried many different things. A friend gave me this article on IBD, which is what the vet thinks it must be, that talked of this new synthetic steroid. I thought it must be better than the real steroid. I like the idea of herbs but I get scared not knowing what is dog safe, or tested.
