Prednidale 5 mg tablets are used to treat conditions characterised by inflammation or allergic reactions in cats and dogs. These conditions can show symptoms affecting the skin, gut, lungs and airways, locomotory system and the blood, hence Prednidale can be used to treat illnesses with wide ranging symptoms. Prednidale has extensive effects in the body which are of great benefit where used appropriately. Care needs to be taken to ensure that the condition being treated justifies steroid medication, to avoid unwanted side effects. In higher doses, Prednidale can be used to treat autoimmune problems and some forms of neoplasm.

35 Prednisxolone for an Overweight Welsh Pony.
Verified Purchase

By on 5 July 2021

Benjie had developed multiple allergies to 5 grasses and assorted insects. He was a very unhappy pony on the verge of being put down. As a last resort our vet suggested a course of Prednosolone Steroids. This is controlling the symptoms but must be continued all summer. Winters are no problem. We are now on our second summer and he requires between 25 and 50, 5 milligram tablets daily. This is an expensive option and should be carefully assessed before embarking on this course of action. Vio vet have been entirely satisfactory as a supplier

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Prednidale Tablets (Prednisolone) for Dogs & Cats, including answers from our team.

Prednidale 25mg and excessive weeing


My Ridgeback has had three courses of these tablets for persistent scratching and licking. He wees so much that I have to sleep downstairs otherwise we have accidents. Also after he's completed the tablets within 2 weeks he's back to the old behaviour. Are there any alternatives which would cut out the weeing? Thank you Jane

  • VioVet Staff

Excessive drinking and urination is a listed side effect of prednisolone use. There are alternative medications for controlling itching in dogs that do not have these same side effects. They are all prescription products so unfortunately we cannot directly advise on their use for your specific pet. It is recommended to contact your vet to discuss further.

I have been giving these to my dog , forgetting to wash my hands


I have been giving these to my dog without washing my hands or using gloves...have I caused myself any harm ?

  • VioVet Staff

It is advised to wash your hands after use to prevent any medication being absorbed through your skin, and so dosing yourself. However the amount that may be administered through your skin is likely to be very small and have no effect. If you have not experienced any side effects then I advise not to worry. Just wear gloves or wash your hands going forwards. If you have any concerns then it is recommended to see your local GP.

Prednidale and worming

Zoe Atkinson

Should I worm my dog with Nexgard whilst she is on a short course of Prednidale?

  • VioVet Staff

There is nothing within the datasheets of either of these medications that would imply using them together could cause any issues, therefore this should be fine. However if your pet is being treated for a specific condition then we would advise running the use of the medication past your vet to ensure it does not interfere with their treatment plan.

Upset stomach

Maureen Matthews

Our dog is on Prednidale 5mg has taken for 3 weeks drinking and seeing a lot . And also has very loose stools . Would the medication cause this

  • VioVet Staff

Prednisolone is a steroid and so can cause increased drinking, urination and soft stools as side effects. I strongly recommend discussing any side effects with your vet.

Prednidale, withdrawal symptoms regarding my dog.

David tobin

My dog, 16 yrs old, has been on this tablet for a week, have now dropped dose to half tablet. Is there any withdrawal symptoms. ..

  • VioVet Staff

Steroids can cause adrenal insufficiency if stopped too quickly. Signs include lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting and diarrhoea. However the dose is reduced and withdrawn gradually to avoid this. If you reduce the dose as advised by your vet then your dog is unlikely to show signs of adrenal insufficiency but you should contact your vet immediately if he does.

Can humans take these tablets


Are these the same as prednisone for humans

  • VioVet Staff

Theoretically these do contain the same ingredient. However tablets which are licensed for use in animals are not licensed for us in humans, and vice-versa. It might be possible that the inert ingredients which make up the rest of the tablet could affect things and they have not been reliably tested. You are supposed to stick to using tablets as per their license and we can never advise otherwise.

Interaction with joint supplements


Can my dog continue to take joint supplements with this medictation?

  • VioVet Staff

No sort of adverse interaction would be expected from using this drug with joint supplements. It should be perfectly safe.

Are the tablets dissolvable?


My cat has been prescribed prednidale and I'd like to know if it is dissolvable in water? He's on other liquid oral medication which he takes reasonably well from a syringe, so I'm hoping I could do the same with the steroid. Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

I do not think this dissolves, or can be given effectively in a drink. The tablets have very little flavour though so it should be possible to give broken up into a little food. Use something which is only ever given as a treat, never a meal, and kept as a special treat. A mashed up prawn works for some cats and these can be kept in the freezer and just one used at a time. Never give lots though, or you will lose the "treat" concept.

Hiya my puppy has been on this medication since Christmas and he's losing hair is that a side effect?

  • VioVet Staff

Sometimes this can happen, but it is not ideal. I have to wonder if a puppy should be on them for months anyway. They are very good for short-term use, say a few days, but ideally a young dog would not be put on them for a long time. I presume your vet has good reason to do this, but it would be worth checking to see if there is something else which could be done. I think you should ask your vet about this.

Dog keeps weeing


My dog has a ear infection the vet has put him on prednidale 25mg but he's drinking bowls and bowls of water and he's weeing a lot so much so he carnt hold it in until he gets out side and he's doing it in the house he never messes in the house normally is this normal on these tablets

  • VioVet Staff

25mg of prednisolone would be a huge dose for an infection and it would indeed make your dog very thirsty and produce loads of urine. I think that either you misunderstand the problem your dog has, or there is a mistake somewhere and your dog should not be on prednisolone 25mg. If your dog has an "auto-immune" disease, then 25mg might be appropriate. If it has an infection, it would not. I suggest you ask your vet about this and say that the side effects are making things difficult for you. It might be possible to change the medication.
