I would try to cut it down. Granted 'long-term' takes on different scales in a situation like this, but if you can keep her comfy on a lower dose, it's so much easier on the body and also cuts down on the side effects--like increased urination. You can always up it again later if you need to, but finding the minimum effective dose with harsh meds like steroids is always a good idea, imo.
