Hello, folks. My cat some allergy on his skin and our vet recommends steroids among other medications. I am not sure how steroids affect cats. Are side effects possible with these animals? Since I am new at this, I really hope someone will answer my post. Thank you for replying. Bye!

Hi, there. Every medication can give side effects. Whether this will happen or not depends on various factors. Steroids have numerous side effects within cats. Since they inhibit fibroblast proliferation, wound healing is decreased. It also causes immune suppression. Cats can experience water retention and this can make blood pressure high. These side effects shouldn’t appear when steroids are used in normal amounts and in the way doctor recommended. I hope this helps. Bye!
