use of prednisone
I've had lots of dogs and have learned that pred is used pretty routinely for many things of an inflammatory nature.
I've been under the belief that you always taper off to an every-other-day dose. But a vet told me that you just do it at the minimum you can get away with. Using it continuously but not necessarily every other day - maybe just, for example, two days a week or three.
I want to minimize the use of this powerful drug and am trying it on an EB for eye allergies but just on MWF.
Has anyone ever used pred over a long period of time at less than an every-other-day dose?
