Be careful.  She may also be developing cataracts and thinning of the bones
(ask your vet to check next time), as well os other, less common side effects
from the steroids.  Also, never just -stop- the medrol, but taper it off (if
you ever stop it).  And if she gets injured or ill, she will probably require
extra doses of medrol ("stress doses" of steroids).  Steroids are good things,
but they can cut both ways.
