In this article we obtain a priori estimates for solutions to the prescribed scalar curvature equation on 2- and 3-spheres under a nondegeneracy assumption on the curvature function. Using this estimate, we use the continuity method to demonstrate the existence of solutions to this equation when a map associated to the given curvature function has non-zero degree.
