    Defaultallergy drug

    Our dog has some type of allergy, red rash and scratching. the vet prescribed Vanectyl P tablets (Temaril P) and it helped alot. Does anyone know if there is an over the counter version of this stuff that i could buy at the locak pharamcy? The active ingredients in it is Prednisolone + Trimeprazine. I know that alot of times you can get human versions of the same drug under a different name and alot cheaper!!!
    thanx

    Prednisone is a steroid, not sold over the counter.

    Did your vet prescribe without first finding out what the allergy is from? You need to find the cause, not just fix the symptoms.

    Well, i think it may be quite difficult finding what is caucing the reaction. It seems to only occur in july and august and when we are gone camping or out in the bush for a period of time. More than likely it is some type of vegetation/pollen. Would the vet just prescribe the same drug when he has a recation?
    thanx

    I don't know alot about allergies Jim, but I've heard they can do an allergy test on dogs to find the cause.
