Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. The risk is it can cause damage to the liver, kidneys and GI tract mixing those two medications together. They are highly not compatible with one another. If you have already given both, I would recommend starting Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb) every 12 hours and getting your Yorkie to a vet for some blood work. Let me know if you have any other questions.

What will the pepcid do?

The Pepcid will help to decrease the stomach acid. Sometimes mixing those two medications can cause stomach ulcers and the Pepcid can counteract that.

Is this an emergency situation? Can we start giving him the pepcid first thing in the Morning and call our regular Vet? There were 12 hours between the Rimadyl and giving the accidental dose of Tamaril-P.

It is not an emergency situation, as long as he is acting fine, you can start the Pepcid first thing in the morning.
