Methylprednisolone is an oral medication prescribed by vets to help treat a variety of conditions in dogs and cats. This anti-inflammatory agent is used to treat certain skin conditions, allergies and arthritis, as well as diseases including Addison’s Disease. This medication comes in an oral tablet form, making it especially easy to disguise in your dog or cat's favorite food.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.


Medrol is indicated in dogs and cats with conditions known to be responsive to anti-inflammatory corticosteroids, including collagen, dermal, allergic, ocular, otic and musculoskeletal, as well as various chronic or recurrent diseases (ulcerative colitis and nephrosis).

Possible Side Effects

Talk to your veterinarian on any potential side effect concerns.

Drug & Food Interactions

Medrol Tablets like prednisolone, are contraindicated in animals with arrested tuberculosis, peptic ulcer, acute psychoses, and Cushingoid syndrome. The presence of diabetes, osteoporosis, chronic psychotic reactions, predisposition to thrombophlebitis, hypertension, congestive heart failure, renal insufficiency, and active tuberculosis necessitates carefully controlled use. Some of the above conditions occur only rarely in dogs and cats but should be kept in mind.


Because of its inhibitory effect on fibroplasia, methylprednisolone may mask the signs of infection and enhance dissemination of the infecting organism. Hence, all animal patients receiving methylprednisolone should be watched for evidence of intercurrent infection. Should infection occur, it must be brought under control by use of appropriate antibacterial measures, or administration of methylprednisolone should be discontinued.

Please note product may arrive in a Chewy Pharmacy vial, manufacturer packaging is shown for reference.

    Convenient and quick

    By Rose on Dec 11, 2020

    Purchasing my old dogs arthritis medicine has become so easy with Chewy! They contacted my Veterinarian to okay my purchase and I was able to get a larger supply than my vet had to offer, making for less trips to the office. This was a terrific experience

    My mom saved a lot of money on the medications to keep my Cushing’s disease in check. Without these savings, my life will be shortened. Thank you, Chewy! We love you!

    I have used this prescription for many of my goldens to help alleviate moderate to severe allergic reactions. Getting this prescription filled through Chewy was easy and fast.
