Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves my dogs life on a daily basis. Solomon has Addison's Disease. He is a Standard Poodle and went down to 29lbs before he was properly diagnosed. He was started on prednisone immediately and not weighs 50 lbs. He wil need to be on it for the rest of hi life. I almost lost him. What one little pill can do and its $10.00 cheaper than at the vet's office. Thank you for being there.

My cat seems to have chronic congestion & ear-itching.

In the past the vet has given him something with Prednisolone in the name, but I'm not sure it's the Methylprednisolone you list. We also use Revolution monthly, & this seems to help him but just for a few days. His congestion is really bad right now & it's time for his monthly Revolution. Any other suggestions for us? How does Revolution work to help allergies?

Can my dog take this for Addison's Disease instead of the monthly shot?

My dog currently takes a monthly injection ($200) for Addison's disease. Is this a possible substitute? We are looking for a cheaper alternative to the $200 injection.
Asked by: T
The most commonly prescribed oral tablet for Addison's disease is fludrocortisone. You can discuss using this tablet as opposed to Percorten-V, which is what I believe you are now using, with your veterinarian.
