Years ago we had a dog on Prednisone, and weren't told to slowly wean her off.  She, too, was shaking uncontrollably, and almost bouncing off the walls.  I definately thing its a side effect.  Are you very slowly weaning her off?  Maybe you could go even slower than the vet suggests.

Definitely can be  a side effect.  Did you Vet suggest you stop the Pred? Did he/she tell you how to gradually reduce the dosage and over what period of time?  If I were you, I'd give your Vet a call to discuss this and determine the best way to reduce the meds.

I have a 9 year old Labrador who is taking Prednisone for Masticatory Muscle Myositis. Is it a little bit of shaking or a lot? Does it happen when she is walking or just when laying down? While my dog was on prednisone I noticed she was shaking while she was laying down and was unresponsive for a couple minutes. After a few minutes she was responding and acting normal. The vet warned us she might have mini seizures and I'm not sure if that's what is was or not. This only happened a few times and it was on the week that she first started taking the steroids.She has now been on steroids as  needed for 5 months and has not had that happen again. I'm not sure if it was caused by the Prednisone or something else.The vet checked her over and said she is okay. You can search online for dog prednisone side effects or call your vet and discuss dosage, side effects, and what the cause might be.
