Hi there, I am Dr. Fields, and I understand Tobie ate 2.5mg of prednisone. This is on the high end of a therapeutic dose for him, and should not cause serious side effects. He may be more thirsty and need to urinate more frequently over the next 12 hours however.
Does Tobie take any other medication currently, or does he have any past medical concerns?
It is a form of Prednisone used commonly in cats, but it is essentially the same, yes.
Perfect! I would not expect any significant side effects for him.
Nothing to do, but I would let him have free access to water if he would like it. In rare cases, it can cause stomach upset, and since he has a history of gastritis, it may be helpful to offer him a bland diet tonight and in the morning.
My pleasure! This chat will be open for several days, so feel free to reach out with any further questions or updates.
