Veterinary Medicine has a bit of a drug problem

As in using too many of them, too often.

A classic overused drug..

Steroids.

They are used for many veterinary conditions, from treating asthma in cats, supressing the immune system in polyarthrits, to the most common condition- stopping the itching in allergic pets.

But they come with side effects

Here is what Clinicians Brief has to say about some of the side effects:

Classic complications of dogs undergoing glucocorticoid therapy include massive polyuria and polydipsia ( increased drinking and urination), hepato­­megaly ( enlarged liver), thin skin, panting, and polyphagia ( increased eating). Hair regrowth is diminished, and ultimately, bilaterally symmetric alopecia may develop ( hair loss on both sides of the body).

Other complications may include:

• Steroid hepatopathy, predictable in dogs although rare in cats
• Elevated liver enzymes, including alkaline phosphatase
• Histopathologic hepatic changes
• Marked lethargy
• Panting (thought to result from hepatomegaly and skeletal muscle weakness)
• Gastrointestinal signs, including gastric ulcerations
• Diabetes mellitus or diabetic ketoacidosis
• Pulmonary thromboembolism
• Urinary tract infections, including emphysematous cystitis infections
• Pyometra in intact female dogs
• Rarely, severe aggression.

The suggestion from Clinicians Brief, and my own belief..

The best way to prevent complications is to avoid using steroids when possible.

Here is a picture of what can happen with steroid abuse ( a disease called Demodex)
