My non grey (30lb) was dx with probable brain tumor and put on 10mgs prednesilone daily with intent to increase dose. Its been 10 days and due to side effects she agreed it is not helping and not contributing to her quality of life. So vet instructions are to give 5mgs for 3 days and then stop but I was wondering how others have tapered off as I want to be sure to do it safely. Thanks for any advice. brit

You may have seen different instructions in other instances, but your vet has prescribed what's best for your girl considering her weight, how long she's been on the pred, how much she's been taking, what's wrong with her, and the fact that it's not helping her. Prednisone isn't something that all dogs take the same way--and they don't come off it the same way either.
