The only thing I know about prednisone
is it's used to relieve pain and
reduce inflammation and
swelling. It is helpful to use with dogs that have endless itching, for example, and is even used for cancer and a variety of other illnesses. I personally have taken it for insect bite pain and swelling, and it made me feel good. But now, if you have a pancreatitis dog, my understanding is if they are on long-term prednisone, it must be stopped, becuz it can be the culprit in causing it.
