Indications for Temaril-P

Temaril-P (Trimeprazine with prednisolone) is indicated for the relief of itching and various cough conditions including kennel cough (tracheobronchitis), bronchitis and coughs of nonspecific origin (except coughs due to cardiac insufficiencies). The medication combines the antipruritic and antitussive properties of trimeprazine with the anti-inflammatory property of prednisolone. The antipruritic properties of the medication aid for the reduction of inflammation triggered by certain skin disorders in dogs including eczema, otitis and dermatitis (allergic, parasitic, pustular and non-specific).

Precautions

Talk to your veterinarian to make sure that trimeprazine and prednisolone won't interfere with any medication your pet is currently taking.
