Prednisolone (prednisolone acetate) is most commonly prescribed to help relieve inflammation and joint pain, and to decrease the swelling, redness, and itching often associated with allergic reactions. In veterinary medicine, it is often recommended as an alternative to prednisone where prednisolone provides superior bioavailability.
Prednisolone Use in Equines
IMost horses with RAO will exhibit clinical signs when stabled, bedded on straw, and fed hay; eliminating these factors usually results in a decrease or elimination of clinical signs.2 Two different forms of RAO are recognized in the horse: the barn-associated type seen in stalled horses that are fed hay, and summer pasture-associated obstructive pulmonary disease which is more commonly seen in horses living on pasture in the Southeastern United States.3,4
RAO is reversible in its early stages, but if left untreated, the damage may become permanent since affected horses must make increasing efforts to breathe. Although RAO cannot be definitively cured, its progress can be halted.
