    So glad you got him checked out and have meds. Praying they act quickly and Buster fully recovers.

    Yes, the prednisone is just a short course. 3 days full dose, then taper. Definitely a wonder drug, but always with caution. Thanks for the reminder on this drug!

    Glad Buster is feeling better. Prednisone is a wonder drug. Too bad it is so hard on the body.

    So glad you were able to get him evaluated so quickly! I had a friend whose dog had the exact same thing happen-a one and done-the prednisone was a miracle worker along with another drug-perhaps what you have. Either way hoping for a quick recovery!! It is such a very scary thing when these things happen out of nowhere!

    so glad it's not as serious as it could be! We always think of the worst case scenario
    I hope the medicine takes care of it! I had vertigo a couple X and it's scary!

    Vestibular is so nasty. I hope that Buster has it mildly. It's so hard to see our furbabies not feeling well.
