Bea.....Posted by kelus on 5/29/99 at 00:00 (007320)
Bea, my dog had a bad skin allergy too....and we gave her prednisone.
Then she began to have liver and kidney failure as a side effect, and we had to take her off of it. Later we found out it was a flea allergy....and gave her 'Program'....the prednisone was a waste of time really, because she really didn't need it.
I feel if it hurts an animals liver/kidneys, that maybe it will hurt a human's organs as well...hmmm...
Scary that the only thing that helps has such serious side effects!!
