No - go ahead and give it to her. The prednisone and prednisolone are often 
given interchangeably in my experience. By the way, when I have been given 
prednisolone, it is also white and round and scored. I have never gotten an 
oblong pill.

Hi Margo,
Both the viles are marked Prednisolone so I believe they mismarked this and put 
the wrong pill in there(Prednisone). I didn't realize that I HAD been giving 
her Prednisolone until right this moment. I am not sure what to do. She is due 
now for the pill but I feel like I should skip this dose and get to the vet 
first thing in the morning to get the other. Do you agree? Will it hurt her to 
miss a dose?

Sorry, it's 5 mg predniSONE.

What you had before was likely predniSOLONE.

Prednisolone s considered by many to be better for cats, because predniSONE 
must be proceesed in the liver before it is the useable form predniSOLONE

Good evening all. I just opened the refill the vet gave me for my FELV + cat 
named Bogey. The pill they gave me is a different shape than the one she ran 
out of last night. The other was a small oblong shaped pill and this one is a 
round scored pill with a V on one side a the numbers 50 94 on the reverse. I 
fear they have given me the wrong prescription here although it says Prednisone 
5mg on the front. If I could ask...what does the Pred pill look like that you 
are giving your cat? I don't want to miss a dose but also don't want to give 
her the wrong med. Thanks in advance.

Sherri and Bogey
