Hello! I have a 9.5 year old female Boston Terrier named Lulu. She has been on a very low dose of steroids (1.25mg every other day) for most of her life due to a disc problem. Recently we increased the dose as she was having hind leg problems. As we have started the taper she has developed rapid breathing...around 50 beats a minute. She is small and 15 pounds...not overweight. Has anyone else experienced this? Thank you! Going to the vet today. Seems like we are at the vet weekly.
