Rated 3 out of 5 by from ONLY FOR EXTREME CASES... VET MUST GIVE RX . I have had several dogs that were given prednisone for various reasons. This requires a RX from your vet. Please be sure to follow the instructions carefully. This drug is great but MUST BE TAPERED OFF precisely as the vet orders. I have Lupus and take prednisone myself for 25 years... I am also a retired LPN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service & Fast Shipping! Once the prescription was signed, the medication was shipped immediately. Very smooth and convenient, and I absolutely love the ability to chat live if I have any questions! They have always been so nice! Unfortunately, she wouldn't take the Prednisolone even when concealed in Pill Pockets and treats; it must be too bitter. The alternative is to revert back to Prednisone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than Prednisone My cat is on this medication for asthma. It does seem to work better than Prednisone- he seems to need to take less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from thank you petmeds My cat has a serious lung problem. I couldn't find prenisolone locally the pharmacy said it was discontinued. I tried everywhere even the vet didn't have it. prednisone was not as effective and it started to have a negative effect on kitty. The vet said we had to have prednisolone because it has a better effect in cats. So thank you pet meds you helped my kitty get the proper meds when no one else could. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped cats dry skin I have two cats in my home and my American Longhair has had skin problems ever since she was a kitten. I just started buying these for her after the vet prescribed them for her skin and I must say, her skin is doing a lot better. Only downside from the med, is that my cat seemed to develop "cat acne" around her bottom lip but it's a small price to pay for the rest of her skin to be doing so good.

Questions

Does the syrup come with an oral syringe?

Asked by: drckw
Thank you for your question. The oral solution does not come with a syringe.
Answered by: Crystal RPTechnician

Is this the same as prednisolone oral suspension 20mg/ml? My doctor telling me it is not. They said if order this one it is weaker strength and will have take much more than the suspension one. Is that the case? They prescribe cat 0.7ml once day. 

Asked by: Honeybee66
Your cat is getting 14 mg prednisolone in that 0.7 ml of the prednisolone 20mg/ml strength. Your cat would need to take just shy of 3 tablets of the prednisolone 5 mg each day. I recommend that you stay with the liquid you have been prescribed.

How long is the bottle of liquid pred good for once opened? My dog takes 0.5mg so the bottle would need to last at least 3 months.

Asked by: kcutler
Prednisolone oral solution is good until the expiration date listed by the manufacturer. The frequency of the dose administered will determine how long the bottle lasts. Please call us at 1-800-738-6337 for more information.

What is the most important information I should know about Prednisolone?

Prednisolone is a prescription medication that is used in dogs and cats. Prednisolone is available as 5mg and 20mg scored tablets and an oral solution. The usual dose is determined based on the condition being treated and the pet's response to treatment. Prednisolone should not be stopped suddenly. There should be a gradual reduction in dosage before stopping. Prednisolone should be taken with food to lessen stomach upset.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Prednisolone to my pet?

Do not give Prednisolone to your pet if the pet has a serious bacterial, viral, or fungal infection. Prednisolone weakens a pet's immune response and its ability to fight infections. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney or liver disease, heart disease, stomach ulcers, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, or any other medical conditions. Also tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should Prednisolone be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Do not give more or less than is prescribed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Prednisolone should be given with food. Store Prednisolone at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What are the possible side effects of Prednisolone?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Prednisolone and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), increased blood pressure, or sudden weight gain. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Prednisolone and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences insomnia, nausea, vomiting or stomach upset, fatigue, muscle weakness or joint pain, problems with diabetes control, or increased hunger or thirst. Other side effects that occur rarely, usually with high doses of Prednisolone include thinning of the skin, cataracts, glaucoma, or behavior changes. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Prednisolone?

If you give one dose daily, give the missed dose as soon as remembered. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the missed dose and give only the regular daily dose. If you give more than one dose daily, either give the missed dose as soon as remembered, or give two doses the next dose time. If you give one dose every other day, give the missed dose as soon as remembered, then go back to the regular every other day schedule.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Prednisolone?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. A single large dose of Prednisolone is unlikely to cause symptoms or death. An overdose is more likely to occur due to large doses being taken over a period of time. Symptoms of overdose include weight gain, panting, increased thirst, hunger and urination, vomiting, diarrhea, and Cushing's syndrome.
