Poor girl.

Yes, pred is a steriod and will reduce inflammation. It does this by affecting the immune system and stopping it from allowing the tissues to become inflammed.

It should not, however, be used as a general pain reliever for long term as the side affects can be dangerous (unless it is actually being used as Aslan stated for a specific illness).

Meow had her cat on a feeding tube not too long ago, perhaps you can pm her.
