Weitht Dosage

Cautions

Prolonged use of corticosteroids may result in glaucoma with damage to the optic nerve, defects in visual acuity and fields of vision, and in posterior subcapsular cataract formation. Prolonged use may also suppress the host immune response and thus increase the hazard of secondary ocular infections.

Side Effects

Side effects such as stomach upset, increased thirst, urination, and appetite have been reported. Other side effects including hair thinning, fatigue, muscle weakness, high blood pressure, sudden weight gain, and panting are possible. Chronic use may induce diabetes or Cushings disease. Some pets may experience an allergic reaction to Prednisolone. Pets on corticosteroids may develop infections more frequently. Other side effects may occur.
