Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and specialist and will do my best to assist you today!
I am sorry to hear about this concern.
How much does she weigh?
Ok - thank you.
In these cases, they are on prednisone for life.
There is a single, treatment dose, not tapered.
thats what i thought
The dose range will be variable, but will range from 20-40mg every 12 hours based on the veterinarian.
There is rarely one dose that fits all, it is a dose range, although at this body weight 25mg every 12 hours would be common.
Again - for life.
This is the treatment AND maintenance dose.
whats the formula for Prednisone? Weight wise?
