Can Prednisone cause constipation in dogs

Customer Question

Can Prednisone cause constipation in dogs?

Constipation is not a usual side effect in dogs taking Prednisone, however, it can cause increased thirst and increased urination.

If you feel your dog is constipated and he/she is taking Prednisone, call your vet to report this new symptom, and have him evaluated to be diagnosed and treated.

I hope all will be well.
