Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Methylprednisolone

Methylprednisone is also known as Solumedrol (injectable),
medrol (oral), and is basically
the same as prednisone in it's effect- close enough.
I am not sure there is a liquid form. If it costs more,
then I think prednisone/prednisilone will be just
as effective.
