Our golden is currently taking Temaril-P allergies.

Customer Question

Our golden is currently taking Temaril-P for seasonal allergies. About 1/2 ago we were feeding our golden and put a 1/2 tablet in her food. without us knowing our cat accidentally jump up on the counter and started to eat the dog food. We think our cat may have eaten the 1/2 tablet of Temaril-P.
Should we be concerned.
Thank you so much for your help.

Hello. This is not going to be a problem. Steroids are well tolerated in cats. We can see some diarrhea secondary to large doses, but my guess is that you won't see any signs from this one time ingestion. Make sure there is plenty of water available. This can increase thirst/ urination. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
