Does anyone have any experience with giving prednisone therapy with their dog? I've been to three different vets and each suggested prednisone. My mascot does so much better on it I can't believe my eyes! Unfortunately. I started reading about the side effects and saw how much damage long term therapy does. She's older and I don't want her quality of life to be affected by pain. I'm conflicted. I've read almost all I can about steroid therapy. In the states it seems there are options before making the leap to prednisone. I get the feeling here it's the first choice. I put her on it originally for 7 days with the recommended gradual taper. When she was off. The next day she was back in pain. So I started another cycle hoping the arthritis was caused by a previous infection that has since passed. Any advice would be very much appreciated
