It sounds like you received the same information we did as far as dosing goes, however, out vet didn't want to get our hopes up and said that most dogs with meningitis and encephalitis do stay on meds for life otherwise they just deteriorate. My mom has been playing with the doses. Before Jingles was diagnosed she had actually lost her vision in her left eye and started walking in circles continuously due to disorientation. We know that she will most likely be on the steroids for life, because at first, Jingles was on the steroids for quite a few months and doing excellent so we weened her off, only to have her start having seizures again and going in circles. So if meds is all she needs we are hopeful she'll be fine. She actually got her sight back within a couple of days of starting the steroids.
