What are PredniSONE Tablets for Dogs?

  • PrednisoLONE and PredniSONE are two prescription glucocorticoid steroid medications that are commonly confused.
  • PrednisoLONE tablets are sold as PrednisTab to try to distinguish the two drugs.
  • PredniSONE is converted to the active component PrednisoLONE by the liver.
  • PrednisoLONE 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.
  • 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.

Why do dogs use PredniSONE?

  • PredniSONE may be prescribed to treat hypoadrenocorticism (Addison's disease).
