She is just panting and standing up. I know she needs to lay down and rest. What can I do

Good morning, Sharon. I am sorry it's taken so long to hear back from someone on our end.

Prednisone can cause odd panting behaviors, so do be aware of this. However, if she truly is painful, options for pain medications would be something like tramadol, gabapentin, amantadine, etc. We try to avoid using NSAIDs in dogs taking steroids, so avoid that route unless directed by your vet.
