What is considered the safest period of time to give a cat prednisone on a daily basis? My cat currently receives 5mg of prednisolone daily for treatment of feline lymphoma.

The safest dose for your cat is the one that works best! Seriously, since lymphoma is fatal if untreated, your veterinarian will determine the most effective dose. Fortunately, side effects from steroids are much less common in cats that other species.
