Have steroid on hand, reccommend?

How much steroid?

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

what type and mg?

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

prednisone 5 mg?

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Prendnsone 2.5mg
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Wow so much less

I cannot recommend since we don't know what the problem is...but if this is due to vetoryl then 1/2 of the 2.5 mg would be helpful...but you need to see your vet...

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

Vomiting is a non specific sign of disease...in other words it can be due to organ failure, GI upset, toxins, drugs, metabolic disease etc, etc, etc,

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Definitely plan am, but if tonight, will be hundreds. This has already cost thousands

I have to strongly recommend vet ER.....

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

Can I help you further tonight or offer any other assistance?

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Do, bot***** *****ne do not give steroid, give rrglsn 6hrs. Provide water and vet sm unlrdd vomiting continues

I did not say don't give steroid...I said I cannot recommend since we do not know cause of vomiting......and I cannot examine your dog....if the vomiting is due to vetoryl steroid will help....if due to something else could hurt....small amount of water and small amount of food, go to vet ER if vomiting continues. See your vet in am regardless of outcome.

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

I hope that makes sense...

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question
