I've never seen a pig or a cow fetch a stick or get all excited to see you when you get home! They use horse meat in dog food but the horses they use are old and ready to die anyway but I have a real problem with eating dogs. Dogs really are man's best friend and I won't be eating one anytime soon.Try calling a rabbit or a hedgehog and see what happens.Dogs are smart sometimes smarter then some people I know. I'm glad their closing that restaurant down and I bet a lot of puppies are too! ♥ Answered by Kristyn Rudiger 2 years ago.
Pred is a steriod and should not be used unless medically advised. Also, it would be completely ineffective as an allergy medication if given in the eyes. Dogs do not show allergies like people do (runny eyes, nose etc), the get itchy feet, skin and sometimes GI symptoms. Pred is also potentially harmful if your dog has an eye injury or corneal ulcer.

yes, OK for dogs. It's usually better to have the vet check the dogs eyes. Eyes can be rather specialized. The problem is sometimes not what looks like. It's easily easy to catch eye infections from used drops. These are not anti biotic drops so it's even easier to get an infection. Answered by Odelia Batey 2 years ago.

I have developed glaucoma from using Pred Forte. If I stop using Pred Forte will the glaucoma go away?
I've been using Pred Forte for about 2 mo. on doctors orders, 1 drop twice daily. Now I have glaucoma, but the doctor still wants me to use the Pred Forte. If I stop using the Pred Forte, willl the glaucome reverse itself?

Usually glaucoma reverses after stopping steroids.If applying pred forte is absolutely necessary,you can ask your doctor to prescribe antiglaucoma medication to control the intraocular pressure temporarily. Answered by Maurice Dedrickson 2 years ago.
Is clouded vision a common side effect of prednisone eye drops? Brand name "Pred forte"?
I have been diagnosed with bilateral uveitis and have been prescribed pred forte to take every 4 hours. The drops however have clouded my eyes alot and I'm just wondering if that's the natural progression of how they work.
Asked by Charmain Sizar 2 years ago.
Clouded vision is not a common side effect of Predforte eye drops. But clouded vision is a common symptom of uveitis. I get recurrent uveitis. When I start with Predforte, I start at a drop per hour, a level that is maintained for several weeks before tapering down. So by my experience, your dosage seems low. I suppose it is quite possible that the T-cell levels in your eyes has continued to go up. Regardless, you should immediately contact your ophthamologist's office regarding this clouding of your vision. I expect they will want to see you immediately. Good luck with it.

Pred Forte has many adverse effects and they are all uncommon. Changes in visual acuity (sharpness) is one of the adverse effects. Contact your prescriber and describe this to her/him. See what she/he says about it. Answered by Jennette Fulk 2 years ago.
