Do you mean .5ml which is half of a 1ml syringe?
My IBD cat gets .5 of prednisolone once a day and is doing very well
on it. It does affect a cats immune system which is why it works
well with inflamatory problems like IBD (Inflamatory Bowel Disease),
but I never heard of using steroids for FelV positive cats, since
their immune systems are already compromised. I will be very
interested in hearing about this. Perhaps I missed some of your
