Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
Many Addison's dogs need Prednisone every day. Also, over time, some dogs will need a higher dose of Percorten V. I would start giving the pred every other day, and then I would have the electrolytes checked on the day the next injection is due, before giving the injection, to see if a higher dose is warranted. It may not be, it may just be that every other day pred is the answer. Also- make sure your vet knows that the Percorten-V now has a generic version that is cheaper.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Bonuses are not necessary, but are appreciated, as they go directly to me rather than to the website. Best of luck.
