Sorry to see this
Prednizone is just part of it! Given twice a day. The vet should have also provided a antibiotic to keep the infection under control from all the open sores that start to develop around the upper and lower muzzle area. Also given twice a day.If this was truly puppy strangles, the pup will always have a stye in either both or at least one of it's eyes. Vet should have also told you to put some type of anti bacterial cream on sores 2 or 3 times a day to keep them soft and aid in keep them from cracking open and getting worse. If vet didn't inform you of all of the above, I would find a new vet !
