Description

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.

Uses

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.

Precautions

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.
