• My cat is on prednisolone every 12 hours. He missed his dose last night due to vomiting, and he won't take it this morning either. How long can he go without this medication before it becomes a problem? Can he wait and take it tonight?

    Hi Vanessa,
    I recommend that you call and talk to the veterinarian who prescribed the medication about this question. The amount of time that it is okay to miss this medication will depend on the dose being given, how long it has been used, and the underlying condition being treated. Your vet knows his medical history so they can give you the best advice on this.
