my 3 year old cavalier king charles spaniel has had severe itching problems for the past two years. The vet has ruled out most items by eliminating them from the dog's diet and/or surroundings. She seems to only get relief from temaril. She's 20 pounds and has been on a dosage of 1/2 pill/day for approximately 6 months. Is this drug ok to use as a permanent long-term solution?
This is a low dose and I am happy that such a a low dose works. There is a steroid in the medication so if you decide to take her off the med, talk to your vet first. It would not hurt to do blood work every few months in order to monitor her liver enzymes. vetcare
