    Default Prednisone and Peeing

    Finn has been on a tapering dose of Prednisone tablets now for the past 4 days and last night he had two peeing accidents in the house. This is quite rare for him, and I'm wondering if it's from the prednisone. I did read that there can be an increase in urination while on this med.

    He's also drinking a lot more water than normal which obviously will make him pee more, plus his appetite has been VORACIOUS! I called my vet's office this a.m. to get the dr's opinion on this and am waiting to hear back...but just wanted to see if anyone here has seen this firsthand with their bulldog?

    I know Lasix will, I've been there and done that, But if your reading it on the label or researched it, I'm betting thats what it is.

    Shy was on it for her allergies -it made her drink a lot more -all depends what dosage he is on (at the beginning she was on high dosage to "contain her skin allergies" then as soon as dosage was lowered to "manage" her clear now skin , she started off drinking loads more water but as dosage got lowered she began to drink more "normal" -i suppose he have accidents due to excessive drinking
    She should be on steroids for life but steroids tend to thin her skin ( she was on steroids from 8 weeks) , weaken immune system and shorten life.
    at 6 months we where advised that she got indeed thin coat and skin so we stopped ,once i get a grip how to manage her allergies "my way" and shes now clear from steroids

    YES!!!! When Vegas was on it he would actually dribble as he was headed to the door to want out. He also had a couple accidents in the house that is the ONLY time he has pee'd in the house since he was a pup. I ask our vet too and the answer was yes.

    What dose do they have him on. Diva is on it right now and I saw no change in her, except she is loving food more than usual. She was on 20 mg. at first for about 3 weeks then 10 mg. for about a month and now she is on 5 mg.

    I THINK each tablet is a 10mg one so he started with: 3 tablets twice a day for 3 days, then 3 tablets once a day for 3 days, then 3 tablets every other day.

    He's now on the first day of the 3 tablets once a day part of the tapering schedule.

    It's for his tail infection which was a pretty bad mess. In addition to the steroid, he's also on abx for that.

    Does his tail seem to be getting better?

    Yes, it is def the meds!! Winston was on it when he had his tail infection and we had the same problems with the accidents in the house & the excessive water! It gets better once you start tapering it off. I hope hes feeling better soon!

    !!! and so happy for Finn too. I later realized how stressed out he was about his tail when he'd chase it the way he did. He's really such a good little boy and I think he's forgiven me for not taking him in sooner to get that evaluated.
    I wished I could've brought him last Sunday, Phil so you could meet him. Next time tho, for sure!
