HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you......I would recommend using Incurin which is a safe estrogen that is labeled for dogs and works really well for this problem and will not cause any problems with the Prednisone.....I like it much better than Proin.....I hope this helps....

do you have any additional questions or concerns?
