If you ask your vet for the name of the steroids and google it, you can probably find a ton of info on the side effects of long term use. A vet was going to place my allergy dog on prednisone regularly and I did some research and found that the ingredients thru long term use will result in various organ failures. That's when I went the hollistic route and found alternatives that worked. The prednisone only alleviates the symptoms by about 75% for a day before he will need another shot.
