Thankfully, a single dose ingestion of 10 mg prednisone may cause transient increase in thirst and volume of urine as well as increased hunger but Rocky will remain safe and will suffer no lasting adverse effects. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
