One suggestion I would take, and your Vet assuredly knows this, is you can't take someone (dog or human) off Prednisone suddenly. It has to be tapered off.
The main side effect's I'm aware of with Prednisone (both with my Mom and past Goldens), is it increases urination and water intake.
And I don't know about dogs, but it is HELL on Diabetics, causing massive swings in Glucose levels. When my Mom was on it she could hit numbers upwards of 600 to 700 all of a sudden.
Remember, Dogs have owners. Cats have Staff...
