PrednisTab (prednisolone) Tablets for Dogs and Cats

Prednisolone is a medication used for many conditions in many species. Prednisolone is a corticosteroid that is similar to prednisone. Prednisolone is the active component that prednisone is converted to by the liver. Horses, cats, and pets with liver failure will need to be given prednisolone instead of prednisone to achieve the desired treatment because they are unable to convert prednisone efficiently to prednisolone. In order to have the best treatment possible for you cat, prednisolone should be considered. Cats cannot convert prednisone completely to prednisolone, so only part of the dose is able to exert its effect.


Often the goal when using prednisolone is similar to prednisone. When using prednisolone, veterinarians want to use the least amount of medication needed to effectively treat your pet. 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.
