Dosage of prednisone for itchy shin rash on 23 lb Scotty. My tabs are 10 mg each and I'm thinking 1/4 tab twice a day to start.

Dear Jane,

That would be an acceptable dose but you should check with your veterinarian that prescribed it so that he or she can help you with the best dose and then the phase out period in which you decrease the dose. If your dog has chronic allergies please consider Derma-IonX and Defendex shampoo so that you can minimize the use of steroids.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
