    Prednisolone is better then Predisone as it's gentlier on an animals system less chance for kidney failure or other side effects using drugs on pets.

      Comments about Prednisolone:

      Price is great and better yet I don't have to drive to pick this script up. It's delivered to my door free. My only Con is if you really need this make sure you give plenty of time to be refilled as it seems to take at least a week to get my order processed. It's even taken up to 14 days. That would be my only con against ordering on line.

        Comments about Prednisolone:

        The product works great! My cat has been on this for about 2 yrs for IBS, which cleared up quite quickly. The one side effect she has is always looking for more food! It is somewhat of a good side effect since she wasn't eating enough beforehand. The best way to administer it -- Greenie pill pockets! It's worth the extra money to buy them. My cat just can't wait for the extra treat with the pill inside. (best given before the regular feeding.)

        Service and delivery comments:

        Fast delivery, packaged well - no problems at all. Comes in green prescription bottle, so easy to find and you know it's your pet's - no confusing with other bottles.
