What is Vanectyl P?

Vanectyl P (also called Temaril P) is a combination drug for treating the itching and inflammation your dog can experience as a result of certain skin disorders, including non-specific dermatitis, as well as helping to alleviate a cough caused by kennel cough or other unspecified coughing such as bronchitis.

The active ingredients in Vanectyl P are Trimeprazine/Prednisolone, a combination that has shown to be more effective than using a corticosteroid steroid alone, which has nothing to do with anabolic steroids that some athletes take as a performance enhancing drug. Your main target is to stop your dog from scratching and licking areas of skin that are irritated from allergies before they become sore and infected.

How does Trimeprazine and Prednisolone Work?

When given to your canine as directed, Trimeprazine is an antihistamine that works by interfering with the histamine receptors in your dog’s body in order to suppress the production of this chemical substance that is released as an immune response when your dog comes into contact with, or inhales, an allergen. High blood histamines cause the itching nerve fibers to be activated when histamine is detected.

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid medication that acts on the dog’s immune system to curb the production of prostaglandins and other substances that cause inflammation when signaled as an immune response to a threat. This action reduces the inflammation that can be painful and cause your dog’s skin to become red. Long-term use of steroids is never recommended, but when taken with Trimeprazine, the dosage is much lower and there are less side effects.

Things to Discuss With Your Vet Before Starting Vanectyl P

Tell your veterinarian about other medical conditions your dog is being treated for and provide a list of all current Rx and OTC drugs you are giving him/her, including herbal remedies, flea products, and vitamin supplements. Ask your vet if changing your dog’s food or adding some omega fatty acids can help reduce symptoms of allergies.

You may also consider vacuuming your dog’s bedding more often, remove carpets he sleeps on, and do not allow your canine in the basement where there may be mold or mildew. Tell your vet if your dog is pregnant, may become pregnant, or is nursing a litter before giving Vanectyl P as it may not be safe for unborn or nursing pups.

Precautions to Take With Vanectyl P

Do not change the dosage of Vanectyl P without first consulting with your veterinarian. To limit the risk of side effects occurring in your dog, your vet can prescribe a starting dose that will be reduced to a maintenance dose once the symptoms have ceased to bother your dog. Vanectyl P is the most common animal drug prescribed for allergies and is usually considered a long-term medication for your canine.
