|Lots of dogs gain wt. when they are on pred. Low calorie snacks if you give snacks, are best. It is also easy to overfeed even though you don't want to since the begging and obsession with food gets to you. We had the opposite with Lola whenever she has been on pred. She does the melting trick. Everyday she loses more weight and it also is rather disturbing. If it comes off dogs who gain, like it comes back on Lola, then it will be quite fast. If she has gained because you are feeding too much then it will come off like any other weight loss. I have heard from some others that it takes some time for the weight to come off.
Don't give too much liver. While it is good for re-building blood, it isn't good in large amounts.
Pancreatits can be caused by different things. One is a high fat content in the diet or treats, or something they dragged out of the garbage. It can also be caused by stress, prednisone and probably other things I don't know about. Lola had it twice last fall when she was on prednisone and cyclosporine.
