Temaril-P may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Temaril-P to my pet:

Do not give Temaril-P to your pet if the pet has a serious viral or fungal infection. Temaril-P can be given in the presence of acute or chronic bacterial infections provided the infection is controlled by antibiotic. 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 en phenytoin, Phenobarbital, diuretics, or insulin. Also tell your veterinarian if the pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should this medication be given:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Do not give more or less than is prescribed by the veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The usual dose of Temaril-P is based on weight. For dogs up to 10 lbs give 1/2 tablet, for 11-20 lbs give 1 tablet, 21-40 lbs give 2 tablets and 41 lbs and up give 3 tablets. These tablets are given twice a day. After 4 days, the dose is typically reduced to 1/2 the initial dose. Keep plenty of water available for the pet. Temaril-P should be given with food. Store Temaril-P at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and take the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose the pet:

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include excess drowsiness, low blood pressure, and seizures.

What should I avoid while giving Temaril-P to my pet:

Do not give Temaril-P to dogs allergic to it or to either of its ingredients. Temaril-P should not be given to dogs that are pregnant or that are diabetic. Temaril-P may cause drowsiness. Do not use any vaccines without checking with the veterinarian.

What are the possible side effects of Temaril-P:

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Temaril-P and seek emergency veterinary medical attention; an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives). Trimeprazine can cause drowsiness, tremors and muscle weakness. Prednisolone may cause symptoms of Cushing's disease which include increased thirst, urination and hunger as well as vomiting and diarrhea. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Temaril-P:

Do not give any other over the counter or prescription medications, including herbal products, during treatment with Temaril-P without first talking to the veterinarian. Many other medications can interact with Temaril-P resulting in side effects or altered effectiveness. These include sedatives, anesthetics, pain medications, epinephrine and procaine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Temaril My golden retriever has become allergic to something that the testing can't catch, This med has been pretty helpful to control it without been down or sleepy. This low dose steroid does the trick. Keep an eye on ur puppy weight

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helping with cough My Pomeranian, Kiki, has a collapsed trachea and has been coughing when getting up from a reclining position. She also will have shortness of breath at times. Temaril-P has calmed most of the coughing and given myself confidence that the medication is finally helping to some degree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent med for a scratchy dog. Zorro is a 12 year old fox terrier and has always had scratching issues. After just one pill, his scratching had decreased to almost none at all. We are all relieved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Meds I went to a new vet for my dogs itching. He put him on Tamaril P and it has worked great. The only draw back is it makes him drink more water and he urinates a lot more. If your dog has skin issues ask your vet about this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am thrilled with the results of Temaril-P. My Shi-Tzu, Grady, has scratched himself since the first day I got him. He was 18 months old. My vet gave straight steroid shots but they wore off after awhile and he didn't want to continue with the steroids. At first I put the Temeril-P pill in Grady's food. He ate everything but spit the pill out (as dogs will). I had some pill pockets and put the pill in that. Works like a charm. Most importantly, Grady no long scratches constantly. He will scratch occasionally but it's probably due to some minor irritation and not allergies. Grady and I thank you for this miraculous product. He has suffered no side effects whatsoever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Must Have My JRT has been on this med for years and it's a life saver for her when it comes to her allergies. Her other allergy med wasn't quite enough so her doc added Temaril-P, and we are so grateful, especially for those flair up moments/days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This does the trick for sure Barkley, my Dorgi (Doxi-Corgi) mix has all of the sudden become allergic to a lot of things. He was constantly scratching, licking, rolling on the carpet or outside in the dirt, trying to make the itch go away! I felt so sorry for him. Even giving him Benadryl wasn't working. The vet started him on this and I could see a major difference the very next day. I used it 3 times a day for a week, then every other day for a week, then as needed. He ran out and after a week, I had to start giving him Benadryl again. The vet refilled and now on 1 1/2 tabs for a week, then half tabs every other day. I too have noticed that he drinks a lot more, and thusly has to go out to potty more. This stuff is great for piece of mind...mine and his! I felt so bad for Barkley that he was going insane with the "itchies"!! I can always find a coupon to use on the site to use in conjunction with the already lowest prices on pet meds! P.S. I have to toot this horn while I can. When my female Rottie was on a chondroitan, it was on auto refill. She passed away and I had to make the call to stop the auto refill. I received a credit for the last bottle I received and had already given her several of the pills. I also received a package in the mail with a condolence card and some treats for my other fur babies. You CAN NOT beat the customer service! I love this place!! :) :) :)

My Boxer is doing the same thing. The vet did tell me that he will drink a lot more and use the bathroom more often. I can't stand that side effect, but his itching has stopped and that's a good thing.

My ten yr old dog does not have a cough but is itching on paws. The vet prescribed Temaril, is this ok?

Asked by: Anonymous
Barkley has the same problem. He didn't have a cough associated with his constant licking of his paws due to allergies. My vet prescribed Temaril-P for the allergies instead of giving him a cortisone shot.
