This is an interesting topic. Sure would like to see some of the others weigh in. Recently had Dixie on prednisone and she was soooooooooo hungry, constantly begging for food. I felt so bad for her but with the pred was concerned that she would gain too much weight. My vet suggested giving her ice cubes to make her think she was getting something to eat. She said she gives them to her rotties all the time.
