  • Q:

    What is the dosage for a 9lb. cat?
    Asked on 4/24/2015 by Lucifer from Chino, CA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Prednisolone transdermal gel is a prescription medication that provides an option for pet owners who are unable to administer prednisolone as an oral dosage form. This medication is applied topically, most often to the hairless part of the outer ear (pinna) and rubbed in well. Prednisolone is commonly prescribed to treat a variety conditions such as autoimmune disorders, allergies, skin conditions, and etc. The dose, frequency of administration and duration of treatment varies from individual pets and their respective conditions. If your veterinarian has prescribed prednisolone, they will be able to determine the correct dosage for your cat. We recommend talking with your veterinarian before starting this medication and in regards to specific dosage instructions.

  • Q:

    Is a transdermal gel formulation effective for treating inflammatory bowel disease for a cat? She is hard to medicate via pills or liquid and this form would be easier to administer.
    Asked on 10/22/2014 by Kaitlyn from Mt Laurel, NJ, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Kaitlyn,

      While a transdermal prednisolone formulation can be compounded, its effectiveness has not been evaluated in inflammatory bowel disease. More specifically, it is not known whether this medication, when given transdermally, reaches the blood in enough amount to be effective for inflammatory bowel disease. Topical corticosteroids can also cause additional side-effects such as possible skin atrophy and pigment change over time. For these reasons, you should speak with your pet’s veterinarian first to determine if a transdermal, or another formation is appropriate for your pet. The veterinarian may also suggest other medication options.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    How long does it take for the transdermal steroid to start giving my cat relief?
    Asked on 9/20/2014 by newton09 from south carolina

    1 answer

    • A:

      Transdermal prednisolone typically starts working within a few days but will vary depending on the pet. Other factors affecting onset would include the condition that’s being treated and specific pet characteristics. If you are concerned that your pet’s condition is not improving, it would be important to speak with your pet’s veterinarian for medical advice specific to your pet’s health issue.

  • Q:

    I was not told to use gloves when applying the gel.  I have applied it twice to my cats ear.  I washed my hands immediately.  What is the danger from it getting on my skin?
    Asked on 8/28/2014 by Slang from Searcy, AR, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Slang,

      Gloves or finger cots are recommended when topically applying this medication to your pet’s skin. Finger cots fit over the tip of the finger may be an option if gloves cannot be used. Prednisolone can be absorbed through human as well as animal skin. Topical corticosteroid side effects include decreased wound healing and thinning of the skin with long term use. Try to avoid getting medication on your hands when applying. Washing hands well with soap and water after administration and avoiding getting the medication near your mouth or eyes.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    How do I get my vet's prescription to you so I can get it asap?
    Asked on 8/12/2014 by newton09 from chappells, sc

    1 answer

    • A:

      You first need to place an order for the medication your vet has prescribed. Once that has been done, we will either send a fax to your vet for them to approve or you would need to mail in a written prescription.

  • Q:

    If 0.1 per dose are there 10doses in syringe? 
    Asked on 6/20/2014 by patches from KY, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Patches,

      Yes, the syringe is 1 milliliter. A 0.1mL dose would be a 10 dose supply. All of the transdermal gels that we compound are sold in a 1mL syringe.

  • Q:

    my verterinarian prescribed compounded prednisolone for a blocked bowel problem for my cat., to be administered transdermally. Is this the right medication?
    Asked on 12/24/2013 by Alex from Phoenix AZ

    1 answer

    • A:

      Alex,

      This is prednisolone transdermal gel (gel typically applied to the hairless part of the inner ear). We compound the medication in four different strengths. Your cat's veterinarian will decide what strength is appropriate for your cat's situation.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Does this product require a prescription? My vet just charged me 4 times your price and I'm sure they would write a script.
    Asked on 10/12/2013 by Kerri

    1 answer

    • A:

      Kerri,

      Yes, the prednisolone transdermal gel requires a prescription, however you do not have to have the prescription in hand at the time that you order.  Once an order is placed, we will fax your veterinarian for approval - most clinics will authorize prescriptions in this way.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    How many doses are in one syringe of 5 ml ? Thanks
    Asked on 9/9/2013 by Sharman

    1 answer

    • A:

      Sharman,

      Our compounded transdermal gels are available in 1mL syringes. A syringe contains 10 doses of the listed strength of medication. Example: 5.0mg/0.1mL has 10 doses of 5mg of prednisolone per syringe. The number of doses you give to your pet per day will determine the total day supply of each syringe.

      We hope this clarifies your question. Please send us an e-mail and we can help you pick the correct variation for your pet.

      Thank you,

Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Prednisolone Transdermal Gel (Compounded):

Very easy to apply to fleshy part of cat's ear. I personally prefer to use disposable gloves since I have another transdermal gel for the other ear.

Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Prednisolone Transdermal Gel (Compounded):

I have a cat suffering from stomatitis. It would be virtually impossible to give her medication by mouth. The transdermal application of this medication us perfect for her. Thank you for a great product. It is truly a lifesaver!

Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Prednisolone Transdermal Gel (Compounded):

My cat is very docile and loving until it's time to give him medicine. He caught on quick to the medicine schedule. This product is convenient without the mess of the liquid and most of all the stress both mine and my cat's! I was disappointed, however, that only one finger cot came with the syringe. Reusing the same finger cot is not practical nor safe in my opinion. There should be one per dose provided. Thankfully I have a supply of gloves.

Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Prednisolone Transdermal Gel (Compounded):

We have been using this for some time now for our cat and are very pleased with the results. We used to have to take her to the Vet for shots (which over time can be detrimental). This is a great alternative and it helps our cat feel better right away.
