For the pet owner, a serious discussion with your dog's vet is critical in understanding proper use of prednisone and its possible side effects. The list is long and one has to weigh the possible results against the possible side effects. In the past, it was the pet owner's insistence on immediate relief of symptoms that made prednisone the drug of choice for anti-inflammatory action. Today's pet owners are better educated and wiser about long term issues that can be detrimental. Other drugs and treatment options make it possible to alleviate symptoms in the mildly allergic dog without resorting to steroid treatment and should be tried for a period of weeks, even months, before giving up. These options would include a better understanding of day to day attention to environmental factors, improved diet that will build up immunity and often the simple matter of keeping the dog inside in an air conditioned environment during seasonal allergic reactions. When steroid treatment is absolutely needed, the sooner the drug regimen can be completed the better. While steroids may alleviate symptoms, they are not a cure.
