Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Thanks for the information. I do have a couple more questions to see if I can get the timeline right. Sometimes stopping the prednisone too soon can cause other issues.
Can you tell me the exact dosing regimen your vet prescribed and at what point you stopped it?
Thanks for the information. Probably not enough of a dosage to be concerned about causing other problems with abrupt stoppage. Prednisone can cause some changes in behavior, but I would not expect it with that dose and stopped 2 weeks ago. It is possible that there may be an underlying liver or kidney problem. Build up of certain toxins from organ dysfunction can cause neurologic issues. I would also make sure that he didn't get into anything toxic. Anything around the house, garage or yard? It is possible that the infection went more into the middle ear cavity as well. I would have your vet take another look into the ears and consider running some routine blood work to make sure there are no underlying metabolic issues that may be contributing to his signs. It would just be very odd to see the effects of prednisone last this far after stopping. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns before rating. Hope this helps.
