If it were possible, it might be available at a feed store or offshore pharmacy but I wouldn't reccommend it. It's probably not easy to get, due to the fact that it's a mild steroid. Do you know why your vet won't prescribe? It might be because of concerns about liver toxicity. Prednisone can be quite harmful if taken too much.
