My dog has hot spots. I took him to the vet who prescribed prednisone, an antibotic and medicated shampoo. I started him on the medication and on the second night my dog started acting strangely. He kept pacing, drinking water and would not settle down. By morning he had drank so much water he could not hold his urine. That day he was going outside to urinate about every 1/2 hour. I finally stopped giving him the prednisone and he is now fine. What else do you suggest for the hot spots? Any preventive measures?
All you describe is a noraml side effect of prednisone. vetcare
