• My dog has glaucoma and is blind in one eye. She is on two meds, one being Prednisolone Acetate, for about two and half years. I read the contraindciations/warnings today. Prednisolone can cause glaucoma from regular use, but prolonged use increases these chances. Why would this med be prescribed for a dog that already has glaucoma?

    Hi Teresa,

    I recommend that you call and talk to the veterinarian who prescribed the medication about your questions. They know your pet’s medical history so they will be best able to answer your question on your specific pet.
