Steroids in humans (I assume the same would be true in all mammals) can
accelerate the aging of organs approximately seven-fold. Long-term steroid use can result in a number of undesirable side effects - I would definitely research other options, especially holistic remedies.

Mom to:
Riley - 8 yr. old GSD
Schatzie - GSD - at the Bridge
Raven - GSD - at the Bridge
Diablo - WGSD/Arctic wolf/GreatPyr Mix - at the Bridge

If dogs aren't in heaven, why would we want to go there?
