My dog is supposed to take prednisone tabs and percorten v per cc shots?
I dunno lol thats what it says on his records. anyways i guess its because hes had too much sodium or something. but he has to take prednisone every other day for the rest of his life and the shot once a month. And feeding him treats or table scraps isn't allowed. I guess what my question is, is does anybody else have this problem with their dog? i talked to alot of different people and they said they've never heard of a dog getting almost fatally ill from table scraps.

Sounds like your dog has Addison's disease. Addison's means that the adrenal gland is not producing enough steroids to maintain the body's function. Addisons also causes electrolytes imbalances that can be deadly. This is why treats or table food should not be given. The excess salt can screw up the electrolytes casuing a crisis.Source(s): http://www.addisondogs.com/addisons/ http://petsmd.com/Health/Dogs/Addisons-Disease-(Hy... CVT
