Q. Has Addisons Disease. Taking Prednisone 5mg q day. Still having diarrhea. Will increasing Prednisone help?
A. Do not change the amount of medication prescribed unless directed to do so by your veterinarian. Try withholding food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. Continue feeding until the stool is normal, then transition slowly to the regular diet. If the diarrhea doesnâ€™t stop, see your veterinarian.
