Prednisone shot question
cjtiger300 posted:
My dog who weighs around 25 lbs was given 20mg injection of prednisone for severe itching. She was given 3 injections on 3 consecutive days. She has been off the medicine for 7 days, but is still lethargic and thirsty. Was she given too much prednisone? How long will this last? She just isn't the same dog. The injections worked really well for the itching, but I want my dog to feel better. Thank you.

Unfortunately I don't have an answer for you.... Sometimes they take a while to answer questions on here. I would call my vet as soon as possible.

Hope he gets back to normal soon. =\
