Kennel Cough Treatment for Dogs

Temaril-P is an antitussive, antipruritic, and anti-inflammatory agent. The oral tablets treat coughing, itching, and inflammation associated with a variety of conditions, including allergies and allergic skin disorders. It is effective in most instances of coughing of nonspecific origin, as well.

Temaril-P reduces inflammation, itching, and coughing in dogs. It is useful for allergic conditions, kennel cough, colds, bronchitis, and other illnesses accompanied by coughing. It can alleviate itching from any cause, and is particularly useful for itching associated with inflammatory conditions such as eczema, various types of dermatitis, and otitis.

  • Stops or reduces coughing from a number of causes
  • Treats skin inflammation
  • Remedies itchiness associated with dermatological conditions and other causes
  • Eases your dog's suffering with symptom relief
  • Available as easily dosed scored oral tablets
  • Safe for use in dogs with acute or chronic bacterial infections that are being treated with antibiotics

Follow all label instructions and heed precautionary statements.

Use exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian.


  1. Administer Temaril-P with food to reduce the risk of gastrointestinal upset.
  2. Give ½ tablet twice daily to dogs weighing up to 10 lbs. Administer this dose for 4 days.
  3. Give 1 tablet twice daily to dogs weighing 11-20 lbs. Administer this dose for 4 days.
  4. Give 2 tablets twice daily to dogs weighing 21-40 lbs. Administer this dose for 4 days.
  5. Give 3 tablets twice daily to dogs weighing more than 40 lbs. Administer this dose for 4 days.
  6. Thereafter, reduce dose to ½ the initial dosage, or to an amount sufficient to control symptoms. Exact dosing varies by individual animal and the condition being treated. Use as prescribed.

Frequency of Use:

Temaril-P is given 2 times per day. There is an initial dosing period of 4 days, after which the doses are halved or otherwise appropriately reduced according to your veterinarian's recommendations.

Give a missed dose as soon as possible, unless it is almost time for the next dose; in such cases, wait and resume the normal schedule then. Never administer a double dose of Temaril-P.


Keep out of reach of children and animals.

Store Temaril-P in a cool, dry location. Protect from moisture and temperatures above 86 degrees F.

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.


Keep Temaril-P out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Temaril-P is only intended for use in dogs. Do not administer to other species. Do not use in any dog for which it was not prescribed. Not for use in humans.

CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Temaril-P would not generally be effective at treating coughs resulting from cardiac insufficiency.

Not for use in pregnant bitches. Tell your veterinarian if your dog is lactating.

This product is not to be used in dogs with a hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients. Labored breathing, facial swelling, hives, rash, itching, sudden-onset diarrhea, vomiting, seizures, and shock are some signs of an allergic reaction. Seek emergency veterinary treatment.

Do not give Temaril-P to any animal with a serious viral or fungal infection. It may be used in animals with a bacterial infection, provided the infection is being controlled with antibiotics.

This medication weakens the immune response and leaves animals more vulnerable to infection. Take precautions to prevent infections.

Do not administer any vaccine to a dog being treated with Temaril-P without your veterinarian's knowledge and involvement.

Tell your veterinarian if your dog has diabetes mellitus or any other health problems.

Usage, especially prolonged, calls for a gradual dose reduction, rather than an immediate cessation of therapy.

Temaril-P may cause gastrointestinal side effects. The likelihood can be greatly reduced by administering doses with food.

Trimeprazine may cause drowsiness, muscle weakness, and tremors. Prednisolone may cause increased hunger, thirst, or urination, as well as diarrhea and emesis. Other side effects, including those associated with use of any corticosteroid, may occur. Discuss any observed adverse effects with your veterinarian.

Side effects are generally dose-related, and may be successfully managed with a dosage reduction.

Temaril-P can interact with a number of drugs and supplements. Tell your veterinarian if your dog takes any other medications or supplements, and always consult your veterinarian before concurrently administering any new ones during therapy with Temaril-P.

Some signs of an overdose include extreme drowsiness, hypotension, and seizures. Seek emergency veterinary attention for a known or suspected overdose.

Prednisolone overdose does not generally cause some of the more obvious symptoms, such as sodium retention and edema, associated with overdose of other corticosteroids. Monitor pets for blood dyscrasias and increased thirst or urinary output.

All precautions associated with the use of cortisone and phenothiazine derivatives apply to Temaril-P.
