How long can a dog be on prednisone?
I've had my dog on it since fall .Her scratching drove her crazy - so I got the first round. We assumed it was allergies. After that round - a couple weeks later she started itching again.We had our first frost - so I didn't think it was allergies any more - but it worked. It now Jan. & she's on her 3rd round. It works a miracle. Next time this itching starts - I'm taking her to the vet . What's next ? Blood tests ? More Prednisone. ? (Benedryl & Claritan don't help at all ) I've never dealt with this much itchiness before.
( PS -- I looked up every cause of itching on the web - and she doesn't fit any category.Her skin is clear,her coat is shiny-I'm at a loss )
