So my 4 year old lab has been diagnosed with seasonal allergies which are causing his hot spots and irritation. He is 75 lbs and the vet has him on 5mg of prednisone per day. I was hesitant to put him on steroids but we have gone through these issues every year since he was born and I am trying this alternative. My vet says that 5mgs is very low dosage for a lab this size. Has anyone had success with minimizing effects of allergies with this?
