Thank you for your question. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
Is he taking Temaril P, or are you wanting to use it?
Temaril P is a combination of an antihistamine, and prednisone, a steroid. It is used to treat allergy symptoms.
There are some newer drugs used to treat allergies besides steroids and antihistamines. Atopica (cyclosporine) is now used for allergies in dogs. The newest drug, Apoquel, seems to work very well in some dogs, and has fewer side effects than steroids.
You need a prescription for Temaril P, Apoquel and Atopica.
Other nontraditional treatments for allergies include: quercetin, nettles, fish oil, evening primrose oil, and probiotics.
