Okay so my dog had a slip disk that put her on prednisone

Customer Question

Okay so my dog had a slip disk that put her on prednisone and now a GI bleed. She has appt with her vet tonight. Do I stop feeding her. Can I give her water? She is already on Pepcid. I've stopped the prednisone. Can the Prednisone treatment continue after they stop the bleed? She wasn't able to move her hind legs and now she is? Can I bath her in tepid water or does that stimulate her to go move? It stinks and she has gone 6 times large amounts of bloody diarrhea. She is still eating drinking and urinating
