Hi never mind
Expert:  Dr Chris replied 21 days ago.

Sorry to hear this. Assuming that the medication your cat is receiving is a prescription medication such as prednisone, this would need to be ordered from your regular veterinary surgery. Unfortunately UK law prohibits the online prescribing of veterinary medicines.

I would suggest to keep trying to get hold of your practice, as most veterinary practices are still providing a normal service level during the pandemic.

If there is any delay in obtaining her medication, then you can give her certirazine 10mg - Half a tablet (5mg) once daily, to prevent her skin condition getting out of control.

We may also be able to reduce her dose a little to make your existing medication last longer if you still have any left?

I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
