Alternative Medicine for Pets/Prednisone cat side effects

Prednisone does NOT change into Prednisolone in most cats according to my vet which is what they need for the conditions Prednisone is prescribed for. If the herbal alternatives do not work, try Prednisolone directly. There may be side effects of increased appetite and weight along with some other long term issues, but it has worked for my cat who is now ~15 years old.
