My 12 yr old cat is on Prednisone 5mg for asthma. Last year it was only for 3 months, this year she started in June and still starts the symptoms when I try to reduce the med. What do I need to watch for if she ends up staying on the medicine for longer term?
Some things to look out for are drinking and urinating more ( more then usual), weight loss, change in appetite, skin problems, vomiting, diarrhea (esp with blood). These are just a few. I recommend periodic blood testing while on the steroids. vetcare
