Buy Temaril-P (Trimeprazine / Prednisolone) 5mg
Temaril-P (Trimeprazine / Prednisolone) is an FDA-approved prescription medication for dogs that is used to treat itching and coughing (including kennel cough) in dogs. The combination formula provides a three-way therapeutic effect: antipruritic, antitussive, and anti-inflammatory. The trimeprazine in Temaril-P acts as an agent for antipruritic and antitussive and helps relieve frustrating bouts of itching and coughing. The prednisolone acts as the anti-inflammatory agent, providing treatment for inflammation and pain. Temaril-P also prevents the development of pustules (raw areas) that are created by excessive scratching.
Talk to your veterinarian to make sure that trimeprazine and prednisolone won’t interfere with any medication your pet is currently taking.

Most commonly, side effects like sodium retention, loss of potassium, suppressed adrenal cortical function, vomiting, diarrhea, tremors drowsiness, blood dyscrasias, delayed wound healing, muscle weakness and osteoporosis are observed.
Ingredients of Trimeprazine/Prednisolone
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).
