Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not help you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Are you referring to the use of steroids (since you didn't list a drug to be stopped)?

not steroids dexadresan how long to before it shows in a swab
Expert:  nekovet replied 2 years ago.
Hi again,
Actually, Dexadresan is a type of steroid that tends to last 24-48 hours. Therefore, we'd want to wait at least 48 hours before swabbing but could add another 24 hours to just make sure it is completely our of your dog's system.
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best,
Dr. B.
