It is suggested by Alan Stanford for the treatment of brain inflammation injuries in silkies. However, one must realize that it is a potent immune suppressant and be watchful for infections.
For brain injuries from pecking at a silkie's weak spot in the skull it makes perfect sense -- it is commonly used to limit inflammation when an animal has a head injury (swelling of the brain can cause a lot more permanent damage than the injury itself did, just like in humans). Sure, prednisone is not something you wanna mess around with, but in this case the alternative tends not to be good either.
Is it actually ever prescribed for anything else?
