Drew : Hello, welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian, and I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.
Drew : Temaril-P is generally a very well tolerated medicine, but it's not a long-term management strategy because it does contain a steroid.
Drew : We typically avoid the long term use of steroids whenever possible, in order to reduce the side effects of treatment.
Drew : Since the problem is only seasonal, I'd suggest approaching this by starting a fish oil supplement and an antihistamine in late winter, continuing it all through the spring/summer, with intermittent short-term use of temaril-P for 3-5 days at a time, as needed.
Drew : there is another option, Atopica, which has many of the benefits of the steroid with fewer side effects, so that may be worth asking your veterinarian about.
Drew : Atopica is somewhat expensive, but is generally well tolerated.
Drew : I would not be nervous about using Temaril-P for intermittent, short-term usage, if that's all that's needed.
