I accidentally gave my dog twice the dose of prednisone

Customer Question

I accidentally gave my dog twice the dose of prednisone instead of the dose prescribed... Should I be worried... What should I do?

Don't give it a second thought. The dosing range of prednisone is wide. If you're dosing twice daily, skip tomorrow morning's dose. If you're dosing once daily, continue doing so even though Gerda received a double dose today.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
