Miniature beagle 10 years old has been taking 2.5 mg
Miniature beagle 10 years old has been taking 2.5 mg prednisone daily for respiratory illness for a month now. She still has wheezing, snores all night and pants heavily with minimal exercise (going up or down the stairs). I have seen her sneeze occasionally when outside. Just within the past week I have noticed that her stomach appears bloated and feels hard after eating. The bloating does resolve some but not completely within 4or 5 hours after she eats. Have not noticed any gas. She is 20 pounds, has not gained weight with the prednisone, is drinking and eating normally and moving her bowels and urinating. The BMs appears smaller and dry. She does not strain and no loose stool or diarrhea has accompanied the stool. I have an appointment with her vet tomorrow afternoon but wondered what I can do for her until then? What should I feed her tonight? Thank you
