In episode 68, Dr. Buzby revealed how a lingering health concern led her to seek care from a specialist, who prescribed steroids (prednisone) as a necessary part of her treatment. As an integrative veterinarian, she found this to be a “hard pill to swallow”.
That personal process offered insight into what many pet owners face when their dogs are prescribed prednisone. This episode is all about those concerns, the reasons to be concerned about prednisone and other steroids, as well as the reasons they are still an essential part of every veterinary (and human) pharmacy.
Simply put, steroids are the most powerful class of anti-inflammatory drugs that doctors can prescribe. Dr. Buzby dispels the myths, focuses on the facts, and helps give you a better overview of this commonly used medication.
