What is Temaril-P?

Cautions:
Temaril-P should be given with food to prevent stomach upset. May cause drowsiness. Do not give to pregnant dogs.

There should be a gradual reduction in dosage before stopping. Temaril-P should be taken with food to lessen stomach upset.
 
What is Temaril-P:

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 giv 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 gibe 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.

Works Wonderful For Dallas's Cough My Yorkshire Terrier Dallas has a collapsed Trachea. We took him to the vet because he was constantly wheezing and coughing. The vet said it was collapsed trachea and he gave us this medicine for Dallas. I am very happy with the results as Dallas has been taking it for 4 days now and he has only coughed a few times since he started it. I would recommend this product to a friend! The only side effects i have noticed is that he drinks more and therefore has to go to the bathroom more often. This is a wonderful product to help with coughs! 05/10/2011
Works like a charm Campy is allergic to almost everything and when dust and pollen are at their worst, he develops a very bad cough, especially at night (can't do ceiling fan in bedroom for sure). Temaril-P is the only thiing that get his bad cough under control. I've tried other medicines, both OTC and RX and this is the stuff that truly does the job. 03/19/2011
TInker Bell Tinker is a chuwawah/pug mix that is about 10 years old. we rescued her about 3 years ago and found out she has ALOT of health issues., She also lost her sight. Besides being on Temeril P she has about 4 other pills and an insulin shot she needs 2x daily. BUT.. with these meds, she is a happy puppy, you would never know she was blind and had health issues. she runs around with our other dogs, just like she is one of them and she keeps up. Im grateful that Pet meds allows me to keep her happy and healthy. THANK YOU!!! 03/09/2011
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!! :) :) :) 07/27/2014

Answer: 
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.
