Description

Prednisolone is a prescription steroid used to treat such acute health issues such as dermatitis, allergies, eye and muscular problems in your dog. It may also be used as a maintenance dose for chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. This tablet form can be inserted into a pill pocket or crushed into your pet's favorite food. Customers may receive this drug under the name PrednisTab.

Prednisolone is indicated for the treatment of multiple conditions including adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease); inflammation; autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, pemphigus, and some anemias; allergies including atopy; asthma; some cancers; and certain types of colitis and kidney diseases (nephrotic syndrome).

Possible Side Effects

Side effects are usually dose-dependent. If side effects occur, contact your vet, who may decrease the dosage, frequency or type of corticosteroid. Possible side effects include stomach upset and increased thirst, urination and/or appetite. Other adverse reactions include hair thinning, fatigue, muscle weakness, high blood pressure, sudden weight gain and panting. Extended use may induce diabetes or Cushings disease. Contact your vet immediately if you notice any strange behaviors or symptoms after administering Prednisolone.

  • Prednisolone 5 mg tabs

    By on

    My 6 year old Maine Coon has been on 5 mg Prednisolone for about 4 years due to asthma. I became a customer of chewy.com when he recently had to be put on prescription urinary care food. Shortly thereafter, I discovered that your price for 5 mg Prednisolone is 1/3 of the cost of the Prednisolone I was purchasing from my vet’s office. Even better, after receiving my first shipment, I discovered the Prednisolone from Chewy is the exact same generic that I was paying 3x times the money for at my vet’s office. I’m a happy camper!

  • Cannot tell the difference

    By on

    I am not sure how to write a review for a prescription medication. What I can say, is that my cat is still doing well on his medication. I cannot tell the difference between what he was given at the vet and what we have now. My cat is still happy and getting healthier.

  • Convenient and cheap

    By on

    Been getting this prescription from my vet for over a year but now that I realized I can order it from Chewys I am annoyed that I did not do it earlier It is much cheaper than the vet’s price and I don’t have to drive anywhere to get it. My dog will be on this for the rest of her life so this has made it so much easier

  • Happy to order this from Chewy

    My cat was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, which has meant another change in diet and now medication for an unknown amount of time. This prescription isn't available at our local pharmacies (although one could order it for over $350!), and, though it isn't a terribly expensive prescription, it does cost more at the vet which adds up over time, even when shipping is added to the cost of ordering from Chewy. Keeping him healthy and feeling well for as long as possible are what matter to me, but saving money on a prescription (especially when I have a dog on another prescription at our local pharmacy) is helpful when someone is on a fixed income.

  • Fabulous Service!

    By on

    I was dire in need of a medication for my cat. At the moment I am recovering from a surgery and cannot get out to pick up items like this. My own pharmacy did not have this medication in a veterinary grade. So I ordered through Chewy. They called my vet to get the script and less than 24 hours later Chewy had it delivered to my front door. What a blessing. Thank you Chewy....my little Milo thanks you too!
