Dog and Cat Corticosteroid Pet Medications

Prednisone is a corticosteroid pet medication used to treat a wide variety of auto-immune and inflammatory diseases and conditions in dogs and cats. Prednisone pet meds help treat pain and inflammation associated with arthritis, pet allergies, dermatitis, asthma, and adrenal insufficiency (Addison's Disease).

Prednisone is a powerful corticosteroid used in cats and dogs. It reduces inflammation and treats symptoms associated with some allergic conditions. It is also a treatment for a variety of conditions, particularly autoimmune disorders, as it suppresses immune system function.

Benefits of Prednisone:

  • Potent anti-inflammatory action
  • Remedies red and itchy skin or eyes, swelling, and other symptoms of allergic reactions and skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis
  • Reduces inflammation associated with ear and other infections, arthritis, bursitis, nephrosis, and ulcerative colitis
  • Reduces symptoms of lupus, pemphigus, asthma, Addison's disease, some cancers and renal disease, brain swelling, and autoimmune hemolytic anemias
  • Low-cost generic medication
  • Prescription-strength treatment

Prednisone is only for use in cats and dogs. Do not use in humans or other animals. Do not give this product to any animal to which it was not prescribed.

Read all instructions and precautionary statements provided by the manufacturer before use.

Follow your veterinarian's prescription precisely.

Directions:

  1. Give with food to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal upset.
  2. Administer the prescribed dose orally. Dosing varies widely. Use as prescribed.
  3. Allow your pet easy access to plenty of water during a corticosteroid treatment regimen.
  4. Taper off the dosage as directed by your veterinarian; do not abruptly stop administration.

Prednisone is a corticosteroid. It inhibits the production of substances in the body responsible for inflammation and allergic response. At lower doses, it primarily suppresses inflammation, and at higher doses its primary effect is to suppress the immune system.

Active ingredients: 5 mg, 10 mg, or 20 mg prednisone

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Cushing's syndrome may develop in dogs with prolonged or repeated usage. Other side effects may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any adverse reactions.

An individual large dose is not likely to cause adverse effects or death. Overdose is more likely to result from prolonged use at high dosages. Signs are the same as above-listed side effects. Consult your veterinarian right away if you observe any of these reactions.

Not for use in the treatment of viral infections. Take precautions to prevent your pet from developing infections while administering immunosuppressive treatments.
