My vet recently prescribed dexamethasone for my rottie's arthritis. People tell me this has very serious side effects. Vet said side effects are different in people and dogs. Is this good long term for my dogs health?
Yes, I agree that the side effects are worse in people. The side effects depend on dose and duration. You also have to consider your pets quality of life when he/she is not on the medication. Have you already tried anti-inflammatories such as rimadyl? vetcare
