The increased urination is most likely due to the steroid, but the not being able to walk is not a usual symptom. The effect of the steroid should be improving within 24 hours of discontinuing the drug. I was concerned with why the steroid was prescribed as the not being able to walk may be more of a symptom of his disease than an effect of the drug. Supportive care by helping him to eat and drink and eliminate is about all you can do, but if he is not improving after stopping the steroid, a veterinary exam should be performed to re-evaluate him.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
