Taking predinisone 20 mg 1/2 tablet twice daily since 9-15 because she became lithargic (pardon my spelling) . we had immediate good results. Still continuing medicine. After getting results from blood and urine test found Thyroid problem. Started levocrine 0.3 mg 9/20 gave her evening does 6 pm During the night she was restless and developed urine leakage. I checked the medicine on internet and said this was a side effect. Called vet. they said it was the steroid that caused urine drainage but were not aware of this side effect. I stopped the dosage after the one dose but she is still "leaking". Please advise.
