Comments about Prednisolone:

This has been wonderful for my 15 year old westie-her allergies were causing her to itch constantly anytime the weather changed. It grieved me to see her suffer with this constant itching, biting and tail chasing. This has been a life saver for us both. Gracie is now more calm, her skin looks better and her attitude tells me she feels better.

        Prednisolone is better then Predisone as it's gentlier on an animals system less chance for kidney failure or other side effects using drugs on pets.

          Comments about Prednisolone:

          Price is great and better yet I don't have to drive to pick this script up. It's delivered to my door free. My only Con is if you really need this make sure you give plenty of time to be refilled as it seems to take at least a week to get my order processed. It's even taken up to 14 days. That would be my only con against ordering on line.
