Dexamethasone is a great anti-inflammatory. In high or chronic dosing it also suppresses the immune system. When excessive inflammation is creating problems this would be helpful, usually in just one or two doses.
It's important to assess each injury independently to determine the best therapy for your dog. Having a blanket treatment for everything regardless of the individual dog is poor medicine.
