Temaril-P is indicated for dogs to relieve itching regardless of the cause. Its synergistic combination of antihistamine and corticosteroid may allow for lower doses of corticosteroids. Temaril-P has demonstrated relief of itching and the reduction of inflammation commonly associated with most skin disorders of dogs, such as the eczema caused by internal disorders, otitis and dermatitis (allergic, parasitic, pustular and nonspecific).
Temaril-P has been found to be effective therapy and adjunctive therapy in various cough conditions of dogs. Therefore, in addition to its antipruritic action, Temaril-P is recommended for the treatment of “kennel cough” or tracheobronchitis, bronchitis including all allergic bronchitis, and infections and coughs of nonspecific origin. Temaril-P requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet.
Do not use Temaril-P in animals with tuberculosis, peptic ulcer, and Cushing’s syndrome. Use with extreme caution in pregnant animals. Watch for evidence of concurrent infection. Do not give Temaril-P to your pet if the pet has a serious viral or fungal infection. Temaril-P may weaken the pet's immune response and its ability to fight infections. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has diabetes mellitus or any other medical conditions. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given phenytoin, Phenobarbital, diuretics, or insulin. Temaril-P should be given with food to prevent stomach upset. May cause drowsiness. Do not give to pregnant dogs.
