Default Peeing more after steroid injection?

Dillon has been peeing a lot more since he got that injection today at the vets for the anal gland inflamation.
He normally uses the pads 9 times out of 10, but so far he has just went wherever he was standing at the time.
Poor wee soul was even wet when i picked him up after a sleep on the floor at my feet.
Not a big puddle there or anything but i knew he had leaked a wee bit.
My vet didnt say this was a side effect, but have read online that is quite common.
Anyone else had this experience?

Yes, when Brody was on prednisone for his eye problem he peed all the time. It's a common side effect. Hopefully it will wear off shortly for little Dillon.

Yes, steroids commonly make them drink and pee more among other things. Zoey is my little pee body on days she gets her steroids (every 3rd day) it drives me batty sometimes, but she does hit the pad 95% of the time.

Awww bless her.
I have heard they can also make them more hungry, but Dillon loves his food anyway so hard to tell that part. lol x
