Prednisone is a steroid hormone used to treat dogs with inflammation that stems from allergies, arthritis or other diseases such as Addison's. This corticosteroid can also help reduce the pain associated with inflammation. This highly effective steroid comes in multiple doses, and the oral tablets can be personalized to fit your pet's exact needs. Customers may receive this drug under the name PrednisTab.


Prednisone 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

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 Prednisone.

Drug & Food Interactions

Many medications may interact with Prednisone or lessen/change its effects. Talk to your vet about all other medications and supplements your pet is taking prior to administering Prednisone.


The lowest possible dose of corticosteroids should be used to control the condition under treatment. When reduction in dosage is possible, the reduction should be gradual. Since complications of treatment with glucocorticoids are dependent on the size of the dose and the duration of treatment, a risk/benefit decision must be made in each individual case as to dose and duration of treatment and as to whether daily or intermittent therapy should be used. Kaposi’s sarcoma has been reported to occur in patients receiving corticosteroid therapy, most often for chronic conditions. Discontinuation of corticosteroids may result in clinical improvement

What is Prednisone?

This is an oral medication that reduces inflammation in the body and causes suppression of the immune system when needed.

What are the benefits of Prednisone?

Highly effective. Multiple strengths available. Oral doses can be personalized to fit your individual pet's needs.

How is this medication given?

It is imperative that you give this medication exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian. It is often recommended to start at a higher dose and decrease the dose gradually.

Give Prednisone by mouth (orally). Try to give with food in order to avoid stomach upset.

Never stop this medication abruptly unless your veterinarian instructs you to do so.

Only give this Prednisone to the pet it has been prescribed for. Contact your veterinarian if you have questions about how to use this medication properly.

How does this medication work?

Prednisone can target almost every body system as necessary. Prednisone is a corticosteroid medication that blocks the inflammatory pathways and ultimately the production of substances that trigger allergies and inflammation. At higher doses, Prednisone can cause suppression of the immune system by decreasing the number of cells necessary for a proper immune response.

What results can I expect?

Inflammation and allergies should subside within several days when Prednisone is used. Cancers and autoimmune diseases are more difficult to treat and results may take longer. If medication is stopped abruptly, symptoms can return or worsen.

    This pill is the perfect size for my westie and easily scored to give half tablet. I love that the medications are delivered quicky, correctly and you can always call the pharmacy with questions. I get all fur babies meds from chewy, have for years and will continue doing so.

    Relief for my dog

    By Bran on Apr 14, 2021

    I have tried everything under the sun to help with my Bulldogs allergic reactions to the world LOL. This is by far taking away all the problems she has had. Even the bad smell that she had no matter how many times I bathed her.

    Ease of ordering prescriptions

    By Joey on May 4, 2021

    Fast delivery! The medicines I order from Chewy are cheaper than other pet stores or the vets office. The prescriptions are sent to the vet for approval by Chewy. Easy!

    By Mark on Mar 10, 2021

    Easy peasy

    By Jessica on Dec 18, 2020

    Chewy makes it easy to get things I normally have to jump through hoops to get from my local vet. This prednisone is no different, it’s just e convenient through Chewy. The medication itself is to help keep our dog’s allergies under control. There are better meds for allergies out there (apoquel), but prednisone does a good enough job for literally a sliver of the price.

    Quick and Easy

    By Juju on Nov 23, 2020

    My dog has a chronic issues and after a few days of no pred cannot even move because his joints are so painful. I filled the prescription at my vet and then put it in with chewy for the next refill. By the time I needed a refill again they had already approved it with my vet and it was very easy to order. Came in 2 days and the sticker on the bottle let me know how many refills I had left. I use chewy for all my prescriptions and have never had any issues.

    Amazing Price

    By CMW76 on Dec 18, 2020

    I would never order my pet's meds from anywhere other than Chewy. The prices are significantly lower than any other place where I've gotten meds for my cats. And my cat responded well and her asthma is under control again, so I am very happy with the medication!

    Important rx as a tool in animal health but Chewy took too long

    By Colonialbeach on Oct 19, 2020

    I have an elderly dog with spinal issues. My dog was in need of the Rx. Chewy took way too long to fill the script. They claimed they contacted my vet 4 times but my emergency vet said not true! And I believe my conscientious emergency vet. It took several phone calls for me to get things sorted out. If I hadn't called Chewy the Rx probably still wouldn't be filled. Very disappointing for a pharmacy to take so long. Other times they have been timely. Don't know what happened this time but my dog suffered due to the delay.

    By JerseyBob on Nov 28, 2020

    We were paying 20 times the cost for the same Drug at our vet. I received an email mowing you can buy your pets drug needs on Chewy. I couldn’t believe the cost difference. If you want to save quite a bit of money, you should check it out.
