Prednisone (Generic) Corticosteroid Tablets for Dogs and Cats

Prednisone is a medication used for many conditions in many species. Prednisone is a corticosteroid that has to be converted to prednisolone in the liver in order for it to have its effect on the body. Horses, cats, and pets with liver failure will need to be given prednisolone instead or prednisone to achieve the desired treatment because they are unable to convert this drug efficiently to prednisolone.

 

Often the goal when using prednisone is to use as much as required for as little of time as possible to achieve the desired outcome. This medication is often used to treat inflammation, to suppress the immune system, to replace or supplement adrenal insufficient animals, or to inhibit the growth or spread of tumors. Some adverse effects commonly seen include growth retardation in growing animals, increased thirst, urination, and appetite, weight gain, and increased blood sugars. Talk with your veterinarian regarding side effects related to the strength of prednisone prescribed and length of treatment.

 

It is important to give your pet this medication exactly as prescribed and to not discontinue the drug without consulting with your veterinarian. If you miss giving your pet the dose, give it to him as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your normal schedule. If you are unsure about when to give a missed dose, contact your veterinarian.
