Product Information

Prednisolone can help to treat multiple inflammatory conditions and some auto-immune conditions in dogs and cats.

Prednisolone is: a corticosteroid medication that is given by mouth in order to treat numerous inflammatory conditions including skin allergies. It can also be used to treat certain auto-immune conditions and adrenal insufficiency (Addison’s disease).

What are the benefits?

    1.Can treat inflammatory conditions in multiple body systems;2.Can help relieve skin allergies and other allergic conditions;3.Can be used to manage certain auto-immune diseases and Addison’s disease.

    What outcomes can be expected?

    Improvement in your pet’s condition can occur within several days if he/she is being treated for an inflammatory condition (ex. allergies). Autoimmune diseases, Addison’s disease, and other chronic conditions may take longer to improve. If your pet does not seem better on the prescribed course of medication, contact your veterinarian for further instructions.

    Who is it for: dogs and cats.

    How is it given?

    1. Give tablets by mouth with food exactly according to your veterinarian’s instructions.

    2. Dosing may start higher and can be decreased over time in some cases.

    3. Never stop giving this medication abruptly especially if used chronically. It needs to be tapered slowly so the body can produce cortisol again.

    4. Contact your veterinarian if you are unsure of how to use Prednisolone correctly.

    How does it work? Prednisolone suppresses the inflammatory response and can also be used to supplement cortisol in patients with adrenal insufficiency (Addison’s disease). It can also help certain auto-immune diseases and palliate certain cancers by decreasing the number of cells necessary for a proper immune response.

    Prednisolone is available as: a tablet.

    Generic Name:Prednisolone(Common Drug Name)

    Common Brand Name:PrednisTab (Vet-A-Mix)

    Dose and Administration:Give all medication exactly as prescribed with food to decrease the risk of stomach upset. Never stop Prednisolone abruptly unless your veterinarian instructs you to. This medication needs to be tapered over time. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember but never give two doses at once. Give Prednisolone only to the pet it has been prescribed for.

    Uses:Prednisolone is used to treat multiple inflammatory conditions. It can also be used in the treatment of Addison’s disease and certain auto-immune conditions. It may also be used to palliate certain cancers.

    Possible Side Effects: Stomach upset, increased thirst, urination, and appetite can occur. Other side effects include hair thinning, fatigue, muscle weakness, high blood pressure, sudden weight gain, and panting. Chronic use sometimes results in diabetes or Cushing’s disease. Some pets may also be truly allergic to Prednisolone. Pets on corticosteroids can also be more prone to infection. Other side effects are possible.

    Always contact your veterinarian if your pet appears ill while taking Prednisolone.

      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.
