Hello again Claite
I have worked out an answer for you ...
1. Actually there is no need to take any special measures in this sort of situation a one off dose like this is not going to do Puck any harm, he may be a little bit thirsty for 24 hours but that's about it.
2. The reason I am not so concerned is that there is quite a dose range for prednisone in the dog, indeed the highest dose I have seen quoted is 3 mg per pound of the dog's bodyweight which would mean a dose of 60 mg in Puck's case. That sort of dose is exceptional, but for common diseases such as skin allergies you might consider 0.25 mg / pound which works out as 5 mg in Puck's case.
The bot***** *****ne is that the dose of prednisone which Puck got was well within a regular prescribing range so no adverse effects would be expected and there are no special measures you need take.
3. Here is a link to an accurate article which covers how this drug is used in dogs in more detail : LINK
