  • Q:

    I am wondering if there are any prednisone medicine for cats?Thanks.
    Asked on 8/29/2013 by Shira

    1 answer

    • A:

      Shira,

      Prednisolone would be recommended for cats in place of prednisone. Prednisone is normally metabolized to the active drug prednisolone, however cats have a difficult time metabolizing prednisone, so prednisolone would be preferred. Cats also have difficulty absorbing prednisone into their bodies.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    How much Liquid prednisone should a cat take?
    Asked on 8/21/2013 by Skillet

    1 answer

    • A:

      Skillet,

      The dosing of prednisone is based on the type of diagnosis, the weight or state of your cat, the length of therapy and other factors. It is best to contact your cat's veterinarian about which dose would be appropriate.

      Prednisone and prednisolone may be prescribed interchangeably to treat similar disorders. Though it is important to note that cats are unable to utilize prednisone as effectively as prednisolone. This is due to a combination of two possible issues: a decreased absorption of prednisone in the body as well as the decreased ability for a cats to utilize prednisolone.

      Thank you,

      Comments about Compounded by VetRxDirect Prednisone Suspension (Compounded):

      My cat has Pemphigus and is prescribed this medicine to treat it. The medicine we received from the vet got him under control so we ordered this for convenience when it ran out. Within days of using this medicine his symptoms came back in full force. Went back to the vet's medicine and got him back under control, but it was obvious this medicine did not work at all. It appears to just be mashed up pills in a saline solution. DO NOT BUY.

      My baby had been on prednisone because of her condition for about a year. This product is great and much cheaper than buying directly from the vet! Very fast shipping as well.
