Prednisone Side Effects

Ask a Vet from: Jamie W.

Question: Hey Dr. Domoslai! Ive seen you a few times with my boys (Loki and Buddy) Buddy was there recently for a really really inflamed groin area and eyes with a lot of mucus(not sure if thats what it is). You prescribed him Prednisone 50mg, since I started giving him the 1.5 tablets every 12 hours(for 8 days its instructed) - his belly has SLIGHTLY become less irritated and the sores are starting to go away (he has a cone) but I'm really concerned he is peeing and going poop so much! And drinking water like crazy (he normally has a sip and that's it). When he pee's it isnt just a quick pee either - I counted over 1 minute long pee's each time. Is that normal? Also his eyes they still have quite a bit of mucus - they clear up later in the day but an hour or so after I give him his pills they get mucus in them. any ideas?

Thanks, Jamie

Answer:  Prednisone causes increased drinking and appetite so increased output expected. Dr. Wayman DVM

Interesting Case #3, July 25, 2011 update Feb 15, 2012

This four year old gelding was presented with swelling and difficulty peeing.  Initially we thought he had been kicked but at sedation a Loonie sized kidney/bladder stone was removed from his urethra, at the end of his penis.  This gelding may have to have his penis amputated, we are treating him conservatively and are still hopeful.

October 4, 2011 update

This four year old gelding recovered very well.  Recently he began exhibiting similar symptoms as before, the result was another huge stone removed from his penis.  His diet and water source have been changed.

  Dr. Domoslai here, I would like to update you on an interesting case.  The bucking horse finally succumbed and on post-mortem had his entire kidneys and bladder were filled with large stones (approximately one gallon of material similar to the scale in a tea kettle)
