I highly, highly encourage you to get a consultation with a neurologist and an MRI. MILD hydrocephalus should not cause a dog to be that symptomatic. I would be very concerned about things like Chiari malformations or AA Subluxation. Please realize that there are conditions which could be masked by the prednisone which may have potentially fatal ends. Band-aiding this may not be the answer. You need to get your dog a proper diagnosis. If this is not within your finances please talk to your breeder about a refund to go to the medical costs.

Hi Jane, I have little to offer but a hug. Please accept that and know that on SM you are never alone. We love, laugh and cry as a family unit. Your baby is very lucky to have yall to protect and care for her. I would recommend listing to the wisdom of "jmm" above ~ as she is an excellent resource of knowledge for you. Lifting up a prayer.
